Effects of bringing down Iran's WWW
Effects of bringing down Iran's WWW connections.
By Gerald Internet Anthropologist Think Tank.
There are some hysterical blogs suggesting
that dos attacks on Iranian pro-regime
web sites might bring down Iran's WWW.
And how that would be terrible as the
public couldn't see/read what was happening
While these voyeurism desires would go unfilled,
and the Iranian people might be at more risk
of extreme actions form the regime,
the regime it's self would be paralyzed.
Banking, phones, TV, Military com
would come to a stand still.
What the peoples majudeem do
is their business.
If they decide to bring down the Iranian
government communications, its
Its their election, country decisions.
The Iranian Government has responded
by bringing down ISPs and filtering
WWW, and physically confiscating
The Iranian Government is on the
run, trying to block access to
western news media.
And the resistance has been
able to block most of the Regimes
Psy ops. and Info war by shutting
down the Governments propaganda
Some of the Iranian news agencys
themselves have been participating
in the dos attacks against the resistance.
The Iranian Government finds its self
in a quandary, the more they engage
in DOS attacks the more bandwidth
they use up running the risk
of shutting off Irans own WWW.
Which would cripple the economy
and government. Bringing the regime
to its knees.
