<nettime> Civilian communications again in danger!



    =====================================================================

    BRUSSELS, May 26 - NATO military commanders won political approval
    today to attack some of Yugoslavia's most sensitive sites, including
    the country's civilian telephone and computer networks, in a bid to
    cut communications between Belgrade and armed forces in Kosovo,
    senior NATO sources said.

    "The plan is to cut off the main telephone system, drive their
    computer systems crazy and make sure the Serbs can only use cellular
    phones that are most vulnerable to eavesdropping by satellite," a
    senior alliance official said. "There is agreement [among NATO
    governments] that this is the moment to apply maximum pressure."

    =====================================================================

    C-I-V-I-L-I-A-N... a strange way to spell M-I-L-I-T-A-R-Y!

    But hey, "it's all because of Milosevic", right?

    Who knows, maybe NATO pilots are really wearing some plastic
    masks with Milosevic's face?  ;-)
