Security for virtualized datacentres

FoTW There's nothing quite like a bit of reasoned analysis to set one up nicely for the weekend. Accordingly, we're obliged to Bill (who we suspect might be American) for his take on the revelation that Iran is not, in fact, about two weeks away from nuking Israel, but rather eight years off having any kind of operational nuclear weapon at all:

Misleading experts -- North Korea is 10 years from an operational nuke -- what was that, damn you mean they set one off, oh it was a dud, so that means they are 9 years away?

The stupidity of the media is overwhelming. Bush hatred is infectious is it not? Blind hatred causes blindness.

As I watch England turn into a quivering pile of dung, like their marines and sailors are supposed to dhow what you are made of, all I can do is laugh, you deserve it. The good news is you be in range before us.

BTW: It took the US three years to design and deploy our first nuke, the nth country experiment is something you may want to read about in your drunken stupor.

Misleading is that all the media can do today???

Well, Bill may have a point: readers won't need reminding that the media's scepticism regarding the US and UK's claims that Saddam Hussein had stockpiled enough WMDs to destroy all life on the planet in 45 minutes later turned out to be groundless. Let's be grateful we piled in there before he pressed the button. ®
