A Japanese Admiral once said about the Attack on Pearl Harbor.. "I fear we have awakened the sleeping tiger."

This morning as I was trying to open my computer email; the email could not be opened. Message on computer "Could not open another unit using service." Same thing on my MajicJack.. As everything was re-arraigning on the computer.. finally I was able to make a call..
Unfortunately every day contacts are not answering their phones whereas they could be warned regarding a message I was given at 8:10 A.M. this date which was "Make certain your car is filled with gas before this weekend. Make certain there is ample food and water in house. There is a scheduled 'exercise' which may or may not turn into something else this weekend."

When we brought my husband Col. Russell Herrmann/Herrman/Herman home on November 17, 1993, his men asked him: Russell what in the world happened?! Russell sat in his chair with that "1,000 yard stare"... Finally he made the following statement
"If the American People ever wake up, and find out what the Federal Government has really done; I would not want to be in the Executive Branch. I would not want to be a Member of Congress or Senate, state of federal. I would not want to be a judge on the bench. I would not want to be a lawyer. I would not want to be even the local dog catcher. Because; The American People will round all of them up; Give them a fair trial and hang them on the Capitol Steps [end quote]."

[I have since heard Ex-President George H.W. Bush #41 made a similar statement after his resignation from THE CARLYLE GROUP.]

All things being equal and equally considered.. in all probability we are looking at the OCTOBER SURPRISE as
Hackers, Possibly From Middle East, Block U.S. Banks' Websites
By ENJOLI FRANCIS | ABC News - 17 hrs ago

The financial and banking industries are on high alert tonight as a massive cyberattack continues, with potentially millions of customers of Bank of America, PNC and Wells Fargo finding themselves blocked from banking online.
"There is an elevated level of threat," said Doug Johnson, a vice president and senior adviser of the American Bankers Association. "The threat level is now high."

"This is twice as large as any flood we have ever seen," said Dick Clarke, an ABC News consultant and former cybersecurity czar.

Sources told ABC News that the so-called denial of service attacks had been caused by hackers from the Middle East who had secretly transmitted signals commandeering thousands of computers worldwide.

Those computers -- or "zombies" -- were then used to overwhelm bank websites with a barrage of electronic traffic.

Different banks have been targeted on different days.

Today was PNC Bank's turn: For three hours, ABC News tried to get on the PNC website to no avail.

On Facebook, a frustrated customer, Cynthia Schirm, wrote, "Trying to pay bills. This is ridiculous."

"Hopefully it can be up soon," wrote Stacy Briggs-Gerlach. "Never realized how dependent I am on it!!!" continued

On to Europe and Asia..as to how this situation is stacking up to reach "the point of no return?"..

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States is temporarily withdrawing more staff from its embassy in Libya's capital for security reasons, but hopes to return them to Tripoli early next week, the U.S. State Department said on Thursday.

"This is a temporary further drawdown of staff for security reasons. We will review our posture again early next week with the goal of restoring staff as soon as conditions allow," a State Department official said in New York, where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is attending the U.N. General Assembly.

The senior official declined to say how many staff were being withdrawn or discuss specifics.

China's Bo Xilai expelled and accused of corruption
Top Chinese politician Bo Xilai has been expelled from the Communist Party and will face justice, state media say.

Mr Bo, the ex-Communist Party leader in the city of Chongqing, is accused of abuse of power and corruption.

His wife, Gu Kailai, was given a suspended death sentence in August for murdering UK national Neil Heywood.

The scandal has overshadowed the party congress that will oversee China's change of leadership. It will begin on 8 November, state media have announced.

The BBC's Martin Patience in Beijing says the Bo Xilai announcement ends months of speculation over the fate of a man who was once one of China's most powerful politicians.

Our correspondent says it is clear China's leaders wanted to try to end the damaging revelations, with the once-in-a-decade leadership change looming.

He says Mr Bo's career is over and he will almost certainly spend time in jail.

'Grave repercussions'
Mr Bo has not been seen in public since shortly after the scandal erupted and it was announced he was under investigation. He was suspended from his party posts in April.

Reporting an official statement from a party leaders' meeting, the state news agency, Xinhua, said Mr Bo stood accused of corruption, abuse of power, bribe-taking and improper relations with women. Continued  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-19755035
