    I'm sure Anonymous considers the US a greater threat and can be more easily rectified than China. I don't doubt that there are members of Anonymous seeing where they can target China. I do believe that the outgoing Premier of China was targeted due to nepotism his family benefited by billions of dollars due to corruption.

    And most of those are hell holes and cannot threaten the international community. The US is the 800 pound gorilla of the world and its government is increasingly growing lawless I fear that the day may be soon at hand that the true patriots of this country must decide to die for what it stands for.

    By your reasoning the War for American Independence was wrong.

    You don't think that those in government already have plans as such and would do so anyway in a little while?

    Given what the US government is doing what Anonymous is doing is a matter of principal.

    Apparently they aren't any better that the Government. I wonder if they see their own hypocrisy?

    “The contents are various and we won’t ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.”
    Maybe they want to minimize collateral damage.

    It's like you didn't know that people in China vanish because they're critical of the government is a thing.

It's like you didn't know that at all, and still had the nerve to call me sheltered. So yeah, I just mocked you.

    But stick it to The Man, dude!
    Your position is idiotic because you're claiming that anonymous is attacking the US government vs the Chinese government because you think that in America you have the FREEDOM to hack the government.

    Quote Originally Posted by OldWorldOrder View Post

    Yes, they sat down one day and started listing countries. When they came to China they said "No, they could fly to our countries and make us disappear", and when talking about America "Yes! That's perfect! In America you have the freedom to hack the government!"

    You popping in every few pages with a childish assertion like this isn't really contributing to the debate.

    Are you stating that Anonymous steals credit card numbers and posts flashing gifs on a message board for epileptics? And as far as the government serving its people I think you may have a different deffinition of "serve".

    There are numerous examples listed at this site: Timeline of events associated with Anonymous - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But here's just one of them:

    AAPT attack

    In July 2012, Anonymous hacked Australian ISP AAPT and later leaked 40 GB of partially redacted customer data to protest data retention policy.

    Exposing the truth makes one a terrorist and a criminal? Tell me, who exactly is terrorized by Anonymous?
