Jackal, you do sound just a little trigger happy...
However the interent is WORLD WIDE.
Also, you really couldn't "hack the internet", perhaps certain servers and ISP's and other features, however the internet is the freeflow of
electricity, it would take days, not months to bring it back up.
Now atmospheric detonations of nuclear warheads and having the EMP blast magnified and reflected off of the satellites, this could knock out the
internet. This idea is often looked over because usually nuclear devices destroy everything before the EMP blast hits there, not to mention the
fallout, however that's one an EMP bomb is: a nuke without the "BOOM!!!".
Really though, if you could assemble EMP's at such a level, I think you would want to due more than be a terrorist...
