Inside "Codebreaker"

Mar 30, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: EDGE

The smartphones, desktop, laptop and notebook computers upon which most in the 21st century have grown dependent-which in truth also run the engines of our modern society-likely would not exist if it weren't for the little-known genius Alan Turing.

I certainly wouldn't say thet he was "little-known".

Anyone who knows anything about crtography or the history of computers knows that he was a giant in both fields.

One of the few misdeeds for which the British government actually apologized. If they were to apologize for every one of their Empire's crimes against humanity they would probably need a permanent government department dedicated to making apologies. Instead they simply shrug it off, saying, "The British government has nothing for which to apologize in ...[insert any part of the world here].

However, the evidence lies strewn across the globe in the form of failed states and other crises which got started by their interference, from Northern Ireland to Palestine to Iran ...{the list goes on and on].

But I'm off the topic. Alan Turing. A great man, yes, and they killed him just as surely as they killed Oscar Wilde. An apology that's half a century late is something, but doesn't alter the facts.

The UK did many terrible things in the past.

The US is doing terrible things right now.

You imprison numerous people without trial and you've managed to twist your own laws so badly that you just charged a guy with "conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction outside of the United States" for fighting against a regime the US themselves tried to impose economic sanctions on.

What were these WMD's? Rocket propelled grenades. Weapons you guys use all the time.

So:

A) are your completely ignoring your own laws or
B) are there tens of thousands of US war criminals?

Actually, scratch that. You guys supported a genocide in guatemala, so both options are true.

As for Turing, he's hardly an unknown.

Tommy Flowers on the other hand doesn't get the credit he deserves.

Yes -- many of the US politicians are such Anglophiles that they seem determine to repeat the mistakes of the British Empire, and I doubt the US will apologize for anything either.
