Why don't they just Photo-shop their own internet?

I wondered which fundamentalist country would be the first to threaten all out disconnection from the Internet, and not just massive filtering and firewall operations.

This is just another failure of Obama. His failed leadership has left a weakened and desperate Iran to proclaim they will shut off the internet. Truly we must spend trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives to stop these terrorists.

It's a good thing Photoshopping missile launches doesn't require an internet connection.

Good for the people of Iran? No.
Good for the people who rule and otherwise repress everyone else in Iran? Yes.

Let's hope that the Iranian people can find an American to water their crops in the midst of this terrible crisis.

Another question, if hackers can (if true) make a song play on PCs in this network via an exploit , why can't they do something, I don't know, like make things like cooling systems for the centrifuges go offline?

Someone already did something like that. They're probably a lot more careful about plugging in USB drives that have been in contact with the workstation network/internet into the actual control system nowadays.

Isn't subjecting enemy personnel to post Back in Black AC/DC a violation of the Geneva Conventions?

/If not, it should be.

Because if you deliberately cause a meltdown and kill hundreds of people Iran will probably decide that the game is up no matter what they do and launch missiles at Israel and the oil tankers and anything else they can think of.

That is kinda what the stuxnet virus did, but it told the motor controller to cranked up the motors in the centrifuges to 11 and totally trashed the mechanisms. It was pretty impressive.

That centrifuge cooling thing has been haunting my dreams.

They're centrifuges for enrichment, not actual reactors; you won't have any nuclear reactions going on. They don't need coolant, no danger of a meltdown here.

Yeah, that's not an invitation to a massive social meltdown or anything.

You'd expect Persians to know better than to try putting genies back in bottles.

Pssh... they don't have any unrest over there. Especially among younger Iranians. I'm sure the youth will rejoice about their new, culturally pure Internet.

The west's internet attacks on Iran's government computers have caused this threat. I can't imagine they'll follow through but if they do I really feel bad for the Iranian people who will be cut off from the outside world.

I was under the impression that it would alternatively speed up and slow down the centrifuges so that the uranium emitted from it would not be correctly enriched and basically be useless but it would do so in a manner that would be subtle and difficult to identify (e.g. not setting the centrifuges on fire).
