    I'd be impressed if they could get in via Skynet.

    Interesting they dont say who hacked them. Suppose it is the Chinese? Or worse, our deadly enemies the French.

    If its kids then they deserve a medal.

    Thought - are they making up this story to try to get extra funding? Sorry if that is very cynical.

    This would mean taking my kids away away from me when they become teens?

    I think it's a cover so we can extradite Abu Nebuchadnezzar to the US.

    It's easy mate. IP address 94.236.30.92 is the army recruitment website. IP Address 94.236.30.93 gives you access to Rapier Missile locations and control data.

    Put it on the "net" and people will play with it.
