Internet & Networking It looks like several companies are learning what happens when you mess with the internet - and they're learning it the hard way. Several major companies have been hit by the collective powers of Anonymous after 4chan launched several distributed denial-of-service attacks. What many have been predicting for a long time now has finally happened: an actual war between the powers that be on one side, and the internet on the other. Update: PayPal has admitted their WikiLeaks snub came after pressure from the US government, and Datacell, which takes care of payments to Wikileaks, is threatening to sue MasterCard over Wikileaks' account suspension. Update II: Visa.com is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

"Iran is a pariah state because its the force behind a huge amount of trouble in the world atm.

An Iranian."

Sound more like a Zionist shill than an Iranian.

Sure the Iranians want a little more influence in their immediate sphere but they have been very co-operative with the west and US with Afghanistan, Inspections of Nuclear Facilities, Iraq etc. Also like Russia and China, they are not happy about a hypocrite empire setting up military bases on every border and carrying out targeted assassinations on their citizens.

You might want to read up on some of the material leaked about Iran and Iranian Military history. Now when was the UN/IAE last allowed to inspect US or Israeli Nuclear facilities/sites?

Back under your rock.

As for Democratic Governments having secrets - I always though leading by example was a better way to instill change rather than by the stick but then I also grew up and realised that Western Democracy seems to have a nasty Fascist Taint about it.
