    LOL...they most certainly test anything they make. And would have most certainly already used it before now.

    On the surface...but the fallout of that attack is Iran's crippled nuclear capability. Does this mean that they are unable to make bombs or supply nuclear power to their people? Also...if they can target nuclear equipment with such precision, what prevents them from targeting something else. I can't say that they have done it but the possibility that the can do it is certainly present. And it can be a massive tool of coercion- the ability to obstruct a country like this- in extorting or instituting outrageously unbalanced demands on the country in exchange for certain rights or concessions.

    Such a weapon has massive implications when you apply imagination to it. But I cannot argue one thing. People were not killed. But...that doesn't mean they won't suffer from the political effects this could have.

    If we're not out there trying to militarily dominate the world then we must be traitors.

    What a load of horse crap!

    Geeeee zus...people...grow a set already. Cyber warfare is and has been ongoing for decades and it involves every country with technology. IF the story about the source and origin of the cyber attack is true, then props and kudos again to Obama.

    If Iran gets their 7 day ****ters tied in a knot over this and decide they want to attack, well...that would be what they call in the business a 'mistake', one that they arent likely to make. And yes...when you have a whackjob alluding to the glorious end of the world in technicolor and on again off again allegations regarding the development of nuclear weapons, then you are subject to cyber attacks. Thank goodness the grown-ups are in charge of security and not the ideologues. The ideologues can maintain security in the flower boxes and Starbucks. Keep em safe, kids.

    Oh, no, I'm sure there is another logical explanation to the question. What do you think it is?

    I've already offered a possible scenario. What's yours?

    Do you have any explanation for his decisions?

    Nor should we be informed, these are matters of security and protection. If we are informed then everyone, including those whose interests run contrary to the US, are also informed.
