I have, but there's a lack of smart people and firing all the shitty programmers doesn't seem to be a solution, seeing as there's still a lot of demand for programmers, even those who inflict strokes on the good ones when they take a look at the mediocres' code.

What would you suggest? Your course of action is akin to those of revolutionary anarchists in regards to dealing with government. Setting governments on fire and making mediocre programmers redundant are both solutions that could work -theoretically at least- but are completely impractical. I'm not sure the solution can come from academia, by the way.

This is coming from someone who doesn't follow all this stuff, so I'm not being completely sarcastic, but hasn't Obama called Seal Team 6 a million times already? What makes it different this time? What makes the US think they will win this war?

Propaganda is to get people talking about this, doesn't matter if it's good or bad talk. And I think they're succeeding. BTW, are they using Final Cut to edit these videos? For some reason I find that hilarious.

Wow. I mean, it's not the most graphic (as in gore) video I've seen but damn if this isn't awesome propaganda for "the terrorists."

I think the US still thinks it's fighting against "sand niggers" and doesn't realize the true scope of what they're fighting against. I'm also surprised at their English proficiency and quality of video-editing.
