London has promised an unbalanced response to a possible Russian cyber attack

33
If Russia conducts a cyber attack on the United Kingdom, the British government will not pay the same coin, but take advantage of "weapons of their choice, "leads InoTV Statement by the Advisor to the Prime Minister for National Security Affairs Mark Sedwill.




Let's take the Russian example. If we are subjected to a hacker or propaganda attack, it is possible that they (the Russians) deny. Probably from the side of a non-state person whose acquaintance they will deny, even if this attack was carried out in their interests. The correct answer may not be in the same area of ​​operations
Sedwill said, speaking before the parliamentary committee on national security strategy.

Perhaps it would be right to strike back or undermine a completely different area in which we can use our strengths and their weaknesses. Read Sun Tzu: if you can, fight in the place that you choose yourself, and not in the place you have chosen for you
he continued.

The Bloomberg publication explains that Sedwill referred to the well-known treatise “The Art of War” by the ancient Chinese commander Sun Tzu. This work also contains other tips: "He who knows when to fight, and when he cannot, will win," and "May your plans be dark and impenetrable, like night, and when you attack, strike like lightning."

The adviser did not go into details of a possible response to Moscow's cyber attacks. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the committee meeting was open.

At the same time, Sedwill noted that an alliance with European and other countries gives London "international influence."

One of the advantages that Russians do not have is allies,
he declared.

The official also drew attention to the fact that Moscow’s attitude to the West "has deteriorated and is likely to continue to deteriorate."

    If, yes, if only ... Interestingly, the British themselves hear what they say?
    the British government will not pay the same coin, but will use "Weapons of your choice"
    And what kind of weapon is it - on swords, pistols, or maybe just an English horn with a fist?

        The aircraft carrier let it flow, and if it hadn’t dripped, then who gave it the opportunity to call at our port. Now, if you downloaded those whom Russia has long been asking to give out, then another thing.

        They already took off not only a hat to their migrants, but also their pants, turning their backs ... And, given that their personal hygiene is still not in trend (their Foreign Minister confirms this), the "answer" will be "with a sweet spot" )

    Dudes are preparing another provocation in which they accuse us. This will be another convenient occasion to tighten sanctions. And yes, we have no allies, and that is a fact. Whom it is customary to classify with us as allies is not ALLIES (in the literal sense of the word).

      And what other "cruel" sanctions can they impose against us? Turn off your gas? All that they could introduce directly against Russia, they already introduced in 2014. You look, the penultimate sanctions against Russia are the punishment of Europeans for economic relations with Russians, the last sanctions are confiscation of money in the West from various Russian corrupt officials, thieves and traitors from Russia itself, and mainly living fugitive crime immigrants in London and Europe. These sanctions are already from the series: "Beat your own so that strangers are afraid." It seems that their “crush” has already jammed, it remains to do dirty tricks on the little things- embassies, RT and the Olympics.

    "One of "

    So we won all the wars. While the enemy draws an offensive map, we change landscapes, and manually. When the time comes for an attack, the enemy is lost in an unfamiliar area, and comes into complete non-combat readiness. This is the point, this is our strategy.

      Asymmetrical, when something happens, the Russians will be to blame in any case.
      If we were subjected to a hacker or propaganda attack, it is possible that they (the Russians) deny.

    Following the same Sun Tzu, create a defense sufficient to repel any attack ... weak?

    Not brain symmetry, however.
    It means that the descendants of the glorious ancestors also warn everyone of their own lobotomy.
    It is ridiculous, although understandable, that the descendants tolerated and liberalized in full measure ... why is there such a complete brain, a piece is enough!

    Sedville referred to the famous treatise "The Art of War" by the ancient Chinese commander Sun Tzu: ... "May your plans be dark and impenetrable, like night, and when you attack, strike like lightning."
    Only English sadwills and borisians differ from general Sun Tzu in that they, at first without any plan, at the briefings, the parliament and the media "strike everyone like lightning," and ask them for clarification - there everything is dark and impenetrable, like night.

    Gentlemen, let these lovers of velikas first return the royal regalia that they received 100 years ago and which Elizabeth got used to at home. Only then will we be equal with them.
    In the meantime, in my understanding, this is a gang of international schemers and terrorists. This refers to the long-established relationship of the British with the Chernobyl Disaster and other events of the 80-90s.
