Police agencies in the United States and Canada said that most of the threats were emailed, but some were phoned in by unknown individuals. They warned that devices containing explosive compounds such as tetryl or trinitrotoluene would be detonated unless funds were deposited into an international account using the virtual currency bitcoin. The messages also warned that the alleged devices would be detonated if “any police activity or unusual behavior” were detected. A deadline of one business day was given to deposit the funds. Throughout the day, police agencies across three continents issued notices cautioning people to remain aware of their surroundings and report suspicious messages or behavior. It was eventually determined that virtually all bomb threats were not credible. Continue reading

SCO Must Develop Measures to React to Threats Against Member States

And now the military side of the SCO will begin showing its teeth. These comments set the tone.

With India and Pakistan to be accepted into the club as early as Monday, the U.S., who is already suiciding itself out of existence, is going to have a serious problem on its hands — and is not prepared. Russia is also a full-fledged member.
