People is writing about the Stuxnet thingie. It an automatic weapon directed at Iran's uranium gas centrifuges. These machines are controlled by SCADA, a common control program. I had many aireators and so on in my plant all operated by SCADA. The Stuxnet thingie gradually accelerated the centrifuges, damaging them. Getting into SCADA is very difficult, but it was done by whoever did it. The wiki says that
The name comes from the River Styx (Greek: Στύξ, Stux, meaning "hate" and "detestation") which formed the boundary between Earth and Hades. The gods respected the Styx and swore binding oaths on it. Its water had miraculous powers and could make someone invulnerable. Achilles was dipped in it in his childhood, acquiring invulnerability, with exception of his heel, by which his mother held him. This is the source of the expression Achilles' heel, a metaphor for a vulnerable spot.כל הכבוד to the person who imagined that this thing was doable, to the one who approved the budget, and the project manager who made it happen. Great.
The USA or Israel?
No doubt Israel is the most dynamic and challenging small country of the world. Only in the USA and Israel a young Jew has the opportunity to participate in such exciting projects. Only the USA and Israel are in a state of permanent "hot" war. For a young Jew, this is the most interesting place. That is my personal experience.
Out of context addendum: Reading the autobiographies of Eastern European Jews, they all describe the schtetl as a very exciting place, where things were always happening. Schtetl were isolated small market villages lost in the tremendous vastness of Poland, Ucraine and Russia, with impassable roads and ignorant subsistance farmers. Yet the inhabitants of the schtetl lived lives full of enterprise and projects, full of family events and serious intellectual debate. It is not where you are, but with whom.
