My first thought on reading the phrase “cyber bomb” was to imagine a bomb that homes in on IP addresses. No way that could go wrong.[/sarcasm]


#3

It’s just a regular bomb delivered via the cybertubes


#4

A battalion of hundreds of Keanu Reeves units.


#5

And that’s all the detail we have, which isn’t much.

Thanks, A for effort.


#6

Wait, no. It looks like Reuters made up the part about “cyber bombs.” The US military didn’t say that.


#7

If it’s on Fox News Comedy Channel it must be true…


#8

I imagine these are the “cyberwarfare” versions of those multi-million dollar cruise missiles being used to blow up some insurgents’ beat up old pickup trucks.


#9

The very center of America would be glass slag.


#10

I fear that consequences will never be the same.


#11

Cyberbombs now, Dubstep guns tomorrow


#12

nah, the coordinates are not nice enough. 38°N 97°W is much simpler to handle.


#13

Will nobody think of teh kittenz?!


#14

I can only imagine pixelated explosions over DAESH compounds…


#15

‘Cyber bombs’ is a direct quote from Deputy Defense Secretary, Bob Work.

That is, it sounds like bollocks, but it isn’t Reuters’ bollocks.


#16

I didn’t see that, but I agree about the bollocks.


#17

Maybe they’re trolling the comment threads on their websites.

Ever noticed how news orgs always talk about something posted on “ISIS websites” but never ever link to the websites? I get why they don’t, but it seems odd to report on something as fact and offer absolutely no proof.

It’s a bomb filled with hundreds of AOL disks.


#19

Alright, you load the AOL, I’ll get the VHS cassettes…

They won’t know what hit them.


#20

They literally won’t. They’ll be looking at the AOL disks and saying, “What the fuck are these?”
