Egyptian Government Orders Vodafone to Spread Its Propaganda Via Text
I would get pissed if I didn't have unlimited texting and ended up having to pay 10 cents to receive this garbage from my crippled government clinging desperately to some sense of control long after the people have realized it is in their own hands.
I believe it's clear who the real criminals are. And the list includes one Ben Bernanke, his bitches on the FOMC who insist inflation is too low, and every single asshole Congressman taking a big fat subsidy to burn up food his state grows as fuel. Seriously, people! The world is STARVING and we're ruining our engines with corn gas! We've truly lost our minds.
Anyway, this is what happens when the slop hits the fan.
Vodafone Group Plc was ordered to send mobile-phone text messages by the Egyptian government, urging people to confront “traitors and criminals” as demonstrators demanded the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.
The Egyptian authorities can instruct the local mobile network operators, which also include Etisalat and France Telecom SA’s Mobinil service, to send messages under emergency powers provisions, Vodafone said today. The messages were not written by the mobile-phone operators, it said.
“The Armed Forces urge Egypt’s loyal men to confront the traitors and the criminals and to protect our families, our honor and our precious Egypt,” said a Feb. 1 text message sent on Vodafone’s network and obtained by Bloomberg News.
Sounds so familiar, haven't I read this story before?
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
