"Since the nuclear bomb is "the mother of destruction," I imagine that they are frightening us by trying to imply they will set off some sort of a bomb."

Do you suppose they're planning to nuke the 'net??? Somebody call Al Gore!!

By splitting data into packets and threading them on the same line, the carrying capacity of that link could be boosted and the whole network made more powerful.

Roger Scantlebury, who worked with Dr Davies, presented the ideas about "packet switching" to a conference in the US, where they were picked up by the creators of the nascent Arpanet, the fledgling internet.

Does that mean Britain invented the internet?

"Yes and no," said Mr Scantlebury. "Certainly the underlying technology of the internet, which is packet switching, we did invent."

British researchers also worked on hyperlinks, another crucial Internet technology, way back in the early 1970s.

David Yates was project manager of a program called Scrapbook which rolled together word processing, e-mail and hypertext - a system that incorporated many elements of the World Wide Web.

Scrapbook went live on 28 April 1971...Scrapbook helped people across the 28 acres of the NPL campus collaborate or projects without having to sit next to each other.

Clearly, the British had developed many of the technologies that went into the Internet. And Tim Berners-Lee, is a Brit and he invented the world wide web...

So maybe the British did invent the Internet but with typical British modesty, didn't want to blow their own horn. At least until now.

No the British didn't invent the internet America did. Leonard Kleinrock an American is the man who invented the method of packet switching and Lawrence Roberts was the scientist to finally utilize the proposed method of packet switching. Later Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf worked to modify the original method of packet switching pioneered by Roberts and Kleinrock and eventually created what is now known as the TCP/IP protocols. It was at this point when ARPANET was finally changed to the more easily pronounced Internet.

iran and china don't have to do anything.

americans are doing a pretty good job of teaching themselves the mother of all lessons by self destructing and bankrupting themselves developing weapons 50 years more advanced than anything any enemy has.

Have you ever heard of the Janet network which was invented by UMIST Manchester England to connect to other Universitys accross the country to transfer large pieces of data. No.... thought not. That was the idea the internet spawned out of so yes the Brits DID invent the internet as we know it.

Respectfully, I would tend to doubt it. Nobody would get away with such a thing at this point. Whatever you may believe the Iranians to be, they are not stupid.

More likely, IMO, they would be referring to a malicious virus of some sort. After all, stuxnet seems to be causing quite a bit of trouble for them, one would expect them to retaliate in kind. Goose, gander, and all that.



The united states and it's allies should switch to LInux...
Not virus free, but an easier castle to defend...

To the last few posts, what does this have to do with the OP? Second, I'm seeing a setup for a false flag. We now have a threat with a motive, all we need now is the execution. I'm looking for an attack maybe through the internet to Wall Street. Crash the market and finish off the dollar as planned then blame it on Iran. This will cause the complete transformation for the U.S.

Certainly not the first time he's said this. We still have yet to learn the "mother of all lessons," or see the "wrath of God," or be burned in "righteous flames." We should actually make a scrap book, this guy has some eloquent ways of telling us we are doomed.

I hope, for Iran's sake, we do not go to war with them. I'm not sure we would bother trying to occupy that region. God bless the Iranian people if their leadership is dumb enough to drag them into a full-scale conflict with our trigger-happy leadership. There would be very little infrastructure or people left.


Yup.

I'll never understand loudmouth, tinpot dictators that threaten us like that. Remember Saddam? "We will make the Americans swim in a river of their own blood in the Mother of all Battles." To quote Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon."


Still, I think there might be a legitimate threat from Iran. They have been building missile with ever increasing range, installing missile platforms in Venezuela, and they can also launch a missile from a ship as shown in this animation: www.liveleak.com...

Yes, I know, that was created with N. Korea in mind, but you have to remember how close Iran and N. Korea are. They share all kinds of technology and they have both threatened us with attack. They don't even have to have a particularly large warhead or sophisticated guidance system. The OP's article (which I read a few days ago on WND, so forgive me if I'm wrong) states that a nuke detonated above the US will create an EMP that will destroy our electrical infrastructure.

We depend on that electrical grid for EVERYTHING from food and gas deliveries to heating and cooling, so threats like this can not be ignored. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't want to wake up one day and find that I'm living back in the 19th century.

Gore invented the internet.

He also invented "inventing" before it was invented.

Very true.

By the way, what has a mother got to do with anything? When i was a kid, i was more worried about the 'father of all arse smackings', my mother was more of a quick slap around the leg, and it was over.

Nothing is going to happen right now. The reason Obama isnt doing anything about Syria is because theres a presidential election he is more concerned with winning. The same for Iran, no one is going to do anything about them until the presidential elections are over.

Not that we shouldnt step in and stop Syria from killing innocent protesters, but i have a feeling the reason Syria started protesting for Democracy was because they saw the U.S. and NATO back the Libyan rebels. Boy did they screw up starting a rebellion this close to election time! A few words of wisdom to the world at large, don't ask the U.S. for help when theres about to be an election, because you wont get it. During election time politicians are so busy trying to keep their nose clean to keep the other jackals from digging up dirt on them, they arent about to lose an election for making a potentially bad decision like starting another Operation Freedom for country X.

I hate to tell you this but, i can do one even better than you can. Prepare to be one-upped. The U.S. has been using networking since we invented the telegraph
, during the 50's and early 60's we had giant rooms filled with computers that were networked to the DoD, from the Pentagon to every base in the U.S. Our technology isnt 50 years ahead of your, its 100 years ahead of yours. That little thing called the Compact Disc? We invented those in the 70's when you guys were still using vinyl records. Those nice little cell phones we all use today? The technology was Pioneered by Tesla, he began talking about mobile phones in 1909 and experimenting with the technology there.

Oh my...

Actually... see that little thing called the Compact Disc? You didnt invent it lol... actually, you didnt invent ANYTHING. You do nothing more that steal other's technologies. If it wasnt for the germans you wouldnt even have a space program or a nuclear bomb... not even your cars are decent. You had to wait for 2008 to build the first car that can actually TURN (of course you had to ask european builders how to make a good chassis). So come on, stop being arrogant. You didnt even invent your own culture, not even the hamburger, the hotdog or the french fries... shut up man.

Stop being such a douche thinking you are above all...

See that german k98k rifle from ww2? It may no be as advanced as your SCAR, but it still works...

look at the stupid stuff western "leaders" say, maybe they just want to join the club.

remember (shock and awe), weapons of mass destruction. the West has more than it's share of crazies.

should we be surprised if others try to say, we can be total idiots too.

the West does not have a monopoly when it comes to trained monkeys.

we may have more of them, but not all of them.

Just because i can't leave well enough alone =) .....Most historians would agree that the 'abacus' was the first 'computer' and dates back to about 2500 b.c. with the Sumerian people....

Sorry that it's off topic, but just wanted to point out we in west should not be so short sighted when it comes to world history.

I agree that a nuke is the ultimate weapon in this world.

In this situation though, it appears that Iran is planning an attack against our national infrastructure through the Internet.

Being a computer scientist in training, I can guarantee you that this is possible. In fact, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before.

Lol, u mad? I hit a soft spot on an american hater. We got the cream of the crop and you go what? A country full of Big Bother cameras looking at you everytime you take a dump and you can't even bear arms. How's it feel being powerless? Hate moar. I never said anything about inventing hamburgers or hotdogs, learn 2 read. I never said anything about inventing our culture either. Way to stray away from the topic! We invented the lightbulb, and harnessed the power of electricity while you were still using candles and carrier pigeons. We even invented the air plane! Come on hate more
