This is Bull%$#@. Yes they are terrorists in my opinion.

An open letter to anonymous:

The IDF isn't just going into Gaza to shoot Palestinians left and right. The Israeli government made an ultimatum to Hamas to stop firing rockets into cities or else. Any nation would do the same if weapons were repeatedly fired upon them across the border. Its called national defense, anon-tards. That the IDF didn't just storm into Gaza without saying a thing in advance shows meaningful restraint. Yet, you target civilians 4 hax over this? Civilians?!

Go f*** yourselves! You're not freedom fighters. You're not revolutionaries changing the world. You're just anarchists with kiddie-scripts trying to intimidate noobs and luddites 4 lulz.

Both the IDF and Hamas are allowing collateral damage to occcur-how is that any different when Anonymous does it?

Maybe humanity needs a Celestial Being after all.

re: #3 Cap'n Magic

This isn't collateral damage. This is what they're trying to do.

You'd think that hackers would take care not to mess with a country that specializes in hacking...

Tell that to Chevron and other victims of Stuxnet.

The law of unintended consequences casts a rather wide net and weaponized software makes no distinction as to who is friend or foe.

Neither does a rifle. But cyberweapons like Stuxnet offer a way to fight the ambitions of hostile nations such as Iran while not actually killing people. That alone gives them real relevance as weapons.

What part of UNINTENDED do you not get?
What part of "Anonymous is DELIBERATELY ATTACKING CIVILIANS" do you not get?

And, FTR, my post was pretty much saying that Anonymous might have bitten off more than they could chew. Your... answer? only indicates that you agree with me.

re: #7 Dark_Falcon

In that's your argument, then Stuxnet is no different than US drone attacks-agreed?

10 EiMitch  Sat, Nov 17, 2012 7:00:57pm

re: #9 Cap'n Magic

So the argument is about stuxnet and US drones? Funny, I thought it was about IDF, Hamas, and Anonymous.

No, not agreed. Drone attack kill people and Stuxnet to date has not done so.

re: #8 Flavia

Unless you can cough up proof that Stuxnet was only targeted for specific Siemens control systems owned by Iran and no other systems would be affected when released into the wild then not only do you fail computer science but basic biology as well.

re: #11 Dark_Falcon

Note the 'To date' part. Until Stuxnet is eraidicated 100% in the wild like smallpox is, the risk of human fatailties either directly or indirectly by Stuxnet-infected systems is still there.

Here's an inconvenient truth: Israel is getting bit by the hand they originally fed.

I find it interesting that you're drawing distinctions between civilian and military computer systems. I don't think anyone else in the world is right. Some people draw a line between government and non-government computer systems or critical vs non-critical systems but I don't think anyone recognizes the concept of 'civilian' in cyber-space.

Agreed.

Solution: dont put your life in cyber-space / develop closed systems which can not be accessed from the internet....yea someone will have to work a bit harder, but consider the alternative.

18 Aligarr  Sun, Nov 18, 2012 3:13:55pm

As for the hackers ? Unleash the super sleuths , hunt them down and liquidate them . Mwwaaaaaaaaaahahhaah

Dude if your ready to kill someone to be able to get to your website you might want to reconsider your life.

I find it obnoxious at best that other people aren't doing this. Especially if one is supposedly doing this as a "political statement." Otherwise, "Anonymous (as the specific example on the table)" is only proving that it's NOT "only Israel they hate", but Jews.

Unless YOU can cough up proof that Israel meant to do anything other than stop Iran, you're the one who fails law, logic & morality by insisting anyone else has to prove a negative in order to clear Israel.

re: #14 Cap'n Magic

No, it's just an incredibly stupid lie

Israel is getting bit by the hand they originally fed.

This thread is ripe for a doctoral in psychology thesis.
