A naked man will often laugh at someone with torn clothes.

Life is full of irony. The U.S., known as a super power, can be seen as paper tiger. I have been chuckling all day long about the news that President Obama‘s helicopter plans turned up on the web, traced back to Iran. According to Bob Boback, CEO of Tiversa, the Pittsburgh-based software company that discovered the security breach, they found a file containing the complete blueprints and avionics package for Marine One.

At the same time on The State of Union on CNN, U.S. military chief Admiral Mike Mullen says Iran has stockpiled enough material to make a nuclear bomb.

The irony is that the U.S. believes that they know more about their enemies, not knowing how much their enemies know about them. Everything is wide open on the Internet and the US military strategy is discussed on CNN in front of the naked eyes of their enemies.

Countries like Iran or North Korea will certainly shock the world because no one know how far they are with their research. The US cannot rely on satellite pictures. As the Kababish of Sudan say, “A naked man will often laugh at someone with torn clothes.”
