We all know that somehow most of the big Bit Torrent cyberlocker services resolve back to Russia, Bulgaria, Latvia, or some other location in the former Soviet Union (take a read of the Hotfile case documents). Here’s a great speech by Romney playing off of Obama’s ridiculous flexibility pledge to Vlad. But will a Romney Department of Justice be willing to go off of Putin’s safe zone and nail these IP theives?
In a foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney declared that “there will be no flexibility with Vladimir Putin” in his administration, alluding to President Obama’s conversation with outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev over a hot mic in March.
“The first purpose of a strong military is to prevent war. The size of our navy is at levels not seen since 1916,” Romney said Monday. ”I’ll restore our navy to the size needed to fulfill our missions by building 15 ships per year, including three submarines.”
“I’ll implement effective missile defenses to protect against threats and on this, there will be no flexibility with Vladimir Putin.”
