Can you imagine all the down and dirty big little secrets the credit card companies have evidenced on purchases for prosecution? Talk about a goldmine. Wow. Eldorado, Amigos.

It only Israel, they can obviouse dish it out in the form of Stuxnet, so they should be able to take it as well. If they cant then they should not be dishing it out.

Re: Magnetic bombs?

Will anyone ever be sure it was the Israeli's

Almost all the other states in the area would rather set fire to their own private parts than have Iran with access to nukes.

The could have been a long queue of assassins trying to take the guy out.

We are all F cked!

This goes way beyond hacking.

Once Iran's got a working Nuke, expect worldwar 3 to begin between these two CHILDISH societies, still banging on about a fictional character!

Just let them destroy each other, the rest of us are better off without any of them.

I do not think so somehow I suspect the Ruskies will neutralise the Iranians and the West will take care of Israel either through political or military means long before that happen.

The way Israel is going at the moment, Israel may be in civil war long before that happen and it will be Jew on Jew, Israeli Jewish society is heavily divided with some elements even calling for democracy to be disbanded.

Iran is not in much better shape either and I doubt the Republican guards are truly interested in a full scale war anyway, they got to much to loose and to little to gain but having one. Mullahs and even Iran president have little true power in the country. Republicans guards are run pretty much like a business and as soon as there profits are threaten they will move to remove that threat, which will probably result in a civil war as the Mullahs has there own supporters.
