Gee, I wonder why the US military (*.mil) would want to block non-US
access to its websites?  Maybe because most of the defacements of these
sites have domain names outside of the US?  Maybe the need-to-know  of
non-US of US military information is real low?

Maybe Alldas hasn't noticed the number of hacks that come from the same
national domain they use?  Do you think they could tell the difference
if just THEY are singled out or happen to be included in a blanked
screen?  Hmmmm... Don't seem to recall any problem with defacement
mirrors within the US....
