After US imposed sanctions on Venezuela, the foreign minister of the South American nation said that the Barack Obama-led government is planning to start a war against them.

Delcy Rodriguez ,Venezuelan Foreign Minister told Chinese news agency Xinhua that the US is laying the legal groundwork to wage a war against Venezuela. She said that President Obama is seeking the support of the congress to attack the countries that don’t serve US interest.

At a hearing in the US Senate on Wednesday, the White House asked lawmakers to grant extensive powers to fight the Islamic State (IS) anywhere in the world.

Warning the nation of  Cuba like economic sanctions against Venezuela, the Foreign Minister said, “The US is preparing to declare war on all countries because requesting authorization to use military force without a geographic restriction means they can invade any country.”

 

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro sought the right to rule by decree for six months from the Parlimanet so as to be able to cope with the US threat properly.

On Monday, Obama issued an executive order to impose sanctions on Venezuelan officials over human rights abuses and corruption.

India has been the target of over 4.3 lakh cyber attacks from five countries including China, Russia and the US while more than 73,000 attacks were initiated from India between January and June this year, says a Finnish cybersecurity company.

According to F-Secure’s honeypot data, Russia, the US, China, the Netherlands and Germany targeted India with 436,090 attacks. This is nearly 12 times more than which originated from India.

Honeypots are basically decoy servers that emulate the real IT environment of a business enterprise.

Russia accounted for most cyber attacks on India (255,589), followed by the US (103,458), China (42,544), the Netherlands (19,169) and 15,330 attacks from Germany.

On the other hand, the top five countries that were targeted by Indian cyber attackers were Austria, the Netherlands, the UK, Japan, and Ukraine — a total of 36,563.
