‘Destroy the enemies without mercy so that not a single man can survive to sign a document of surrender when a battle starts.’
—Kim Jong-un, North Korean leader
World News from CBCnews:
Computer networks at major South Korean banks and top TV broadcasters crashed simultaneously Wednesday, paralyzing bank machines across the country and prompting speculation of a cyberattack by North Korea.
Screens went blank at 2 p.m. local time, the state-run Korea Information Security Agency said, and more than seven hours later some systems were still down.
And another news story from the same source:
Cypriot government officials have voted against a plan that would have seen all bank accounts in the country take as much as a 10 per cent haircut, leaving the path to a possible bailout in doubt.
In a closely watched vote Tuesday, parliamentarians in Cyprus voted down a plan that would have imposed a one-time levy of 6.75 per cent on all bank accounts with between €20,000 and €100,000 in assets, and 9.9 per cent above that level.
The whole world is behaving like bad kids on the school playground.
