Have we tried....
Maybe some engineer figured that since the system was named Phoenix it would rise renewed from the flames...

What an epic pass of the buck. Chinese State-sponsored hackers break into Private US companies, The Government advocates allowing Private companies to "deal with it their own way...?"
This says to me:
1) The US knows it can't stand up to China politically, economically and soon militarily.
2) The US cyber-program is so infantile in its development that it might as well not exist as far as defending US company assets.
3) Instead of worrying about a relatively small bunch of violent madmen in the desert, maybe we need to be worrying more about China (and by more I mean A LOT MORE).
As per everything in War, be it with weapons, economy, cyber, espionage etc. If they were able to stop it they wouldn't need to be complaining about it.
Sad fact is that the East is way ahead of the West in cyber warfare, and unlikely to ever let the West catch up.
When China starts setting their policy by the speeches of wannabe presidents I will eat my hat.
One of the massive problems with the bill is that in an attempt to crackdown on the "terror teaching" jihadist recruitment organizations, it makes illegal any thing that incites protest that can threaten availability of public or private infrastructure. So organizing a protest of a pipeline is a terrorist act and can be hit with the full power of the law. It may say it tackles terrorism, but this government has made a point of lumping environmental groups into that category from minute one that they were elected.
Obviously the technology that we have no real understanding of would be completely baffled by something we do understand... Take that stupid aliens!!! and when they do get here they will be completely overwhelmed by the common cold too, because invading aliens would never see that coming... Or they might invade our water planet when they are in fact allergic to it...
Big bucks for the investors, pink slips for the grunts. I know many people who have been laid off in the last few months from Big Blue. Bet the payback on the Employee stock plan doesn't make up for the lack of job for anyone who is looking for work in this stellar job market.
So this person profited from selling an illegal drug to a minor. A 13 year old is not a legal adult making adult choices.
Civil law in North America has no greater target than those that profit in the harm of others. Canada is not as rabid about this as America but the writing is on the wall.
Really though, seeing as police action is not stopping dangerous drug use why not encourage such things.
It is only by making drugs unprofitable that people will stop producing them.
