ISIL have good techies, they will be able to get their candidates to jump through the hoops.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I know a pilot, and knew another one a few years back. One good guy, one PNNA.
Much less likely, I'd be more worried about the "depressed narcissistic arsehole" overpowering the stewardess and crashing the plane anyway.
I suspect (ok, assume) this is what happened to that Air Malaysia plane just over a year ago, the one which vanished without trace.
If the consequences are severe enough, they would have to refuse. Would the NSA even push that hard if both parties knew that this would be a death sentence for Verisign once the truth emerged?
So what happens when the "bad guys" start revoking legitimate certificates? In this context, that would be MCS or CNNIC revoking Google's real certificates.
I can imagine an NSA pulling a stunt like that as well.
So that is Google's way of fixing this problem?
The US is asking for the favour here, not China.
I can see more potential problems here for Vietnam if they became the US's "running dog". If I am missing something, then it is some point of conflict between Vietnam and China other than the humiliation inflicted 35 years ago.
btw, it is "annihilated", not "annhialated". Sorry - not a word I use too often.
Why "Poor Vietnam"? I see no reason for Vietnam to go along with this, they have historical ties with Russia and geographical ties with China. They start to have to make choices if China and Russia disagree but that does not appear to be the case here.
The last time China invaded Vietnam, China's troops were pretty much annhialated by village militias. Vietnam had invaded Cambodia to stop the Khmer Rouge and China took exception. The US weighed in on the side of China and the Khmer Rouge.

That poll should have permitted more than one choice.
Have not heard from you in a long time (I frequent your old Usenet stamping ground).
Glad to see that you are ok.
I knew a couple just over 20 years ago who wanted to get married. They went to the German authorities to see what hoops had to be jumped through and he described what came next. He had Canadian and US citizenship (I think) and she was German.
- Have either of you been married before?
- Yes, both
- Do either of you have children?
- Yes, both
- Are any of these children under 18?
- Yes, they all are.
- oh, Scheisse
So then they tried Plan B.
He rang the equivalent office in Denmark. They had one question: When do you want to come around?. They got married in Denmark. The marriage was just as "legal" as though it had taken place in Germany.
This is all about whether an EU citizen should also wish to be a citizen of the US, it is not about Central America or Mexico. I have EU citizenship and have absolutely no intention of going to the US for any purpose other than tourism, something I have not bothered with for 13 years now.
I know some US citizens here who are trying to find ways of making their stay here long-term. Just anecdotal evidence, I have no idea how many people are affected or how difficult it is for them to stay.
Surprisingly, very few countries let you have all the benefits of being a citizen without requiring you to pay taxes for them. I hear they won't even let you have free healthcare in the UK if you're not a taxpaying UK citizen. Governments are so selfish.
I don't know about the business with denying free healthcare in the UK, although it sounds as though that could violate EU laws. I would expect an EU citizen living - and paying taxes - in the UK to have access to the same benefits as UK citizens there. I am a citizen of one EU country and live in another. I pay my taxes where I live, and to the tax-authorities here. The country I am a citizen of does not get to see any of this.
My personal standpoint is that the hassles associated with the IRS are sufficient reason to avoid US citizenship, unless the child in question plans to live in the US at some point.
Thinking of my nephew. He used to eat a lot of peanuts, then - as a teenager - he ramped that up and pretty much overdosed.
He is in his mid 20's now and allergic to them. Too much of a good thing and all that.
