Iran is planning to retaliate against the United States for the sabotage against its nuclear program, according to an editorial in the Kayhan newspaper, the mouthpiece of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The U.S. has all of its infrastructure connected to the Internet, the editorial says, and as a result, "it is constantly worried about an unknown player, who they will never be able to identify ... sitting in some corner of the world who would launch an attack on a sector of (the Americans') foundations. They will be taught the mother of all lessons."
Specifically, Iran is looking into launching a cyber attack against U.S. electrical grid systems.

That said; if someone was able to shut down America's grid it would be catastrophic.
if someone was able to shut down America’s grid it would be catastrophic. .....................................................Yes but it is a two way street.
I would imagine the Chinese would be more adept at this sort of thing than the Iranians. At this point, we are so broke and our military is stretched so thin, what could we do about it? Issue stern warnings? Send in the Boy Scouts and the Knights of Columbus? If we don’t get our fiscal house in order, we are tooled.

Yes it would. At least our subs would incinerate these head cases in an act of mass euthanasia.
Good idea to have charcoal, propane, candles and batteries
The problem is, who is in control of our subs and what commands would be given. Before an attack on a muslim country would take place, our military would need to take over the government. This admin will not attack a muslim country but would stand by and watch us be attacked. Of this I am totally convinced.
Under an America first CINC, a credible threat to nuke 'em back into the stone age. Under the current administration, an apology tour.
No, that simply won't happen. Why? Because the only man who can make the call, is the 'messiah'; and ht's too cowardly to do that. He has already gone on record stating that eh would not authorize Nuclear weapons, EVEN IF we were attacked with Atomic weapons first. America wanted an EEO President, and now we have one - one who is a coward - and is wiling to watch this country be incinerated - so I hope that the first man to have his shadow etched into the concrete, is the same man who had doomed the rest of us to that fate.
Doesn’t it make you feel secure in knowing we are being led by, what most would say is incompitance but what it really is.....is the infultration of our system and the elected criminal element working together to help our enemies succeed.
I’d say our goobermint has already given us the mother of all lessons, economically speaking.
Even bigger then “diversity is our strength”?
or “SS numbers will never be used for identification”?
or “oboma is brilliant”?
...and the ChiComs has also been practicing this war game. You're exactly right -- one of these days, they will shut us down.
“Hello Iran? This is the Japanese Prime Minister. You’re said what to America?”
No need for Iran to do anything, we are doing a good enough job ourselves with our enemies within, of self destruction.
Don’t worry; I’m sure he doesn’t mean it... /s/
Why is there still an Iran?
Don’t underestimate the technical skills of the Iranians.
Had it not been for the Islamic Revolution they might be up there with India in terms of outsourcing destinations right now.
Maybe Norman Rockwell WAS a lefty ... but he sure knew how to picture us in a manner that ... if it didn't exist, we WANTED it to.
Old world saying - if you want to kill a man, carry it out with a third party, stab him from the back and in the dark. China will teach a third party who is crazy enough to do it to the US. Iran will be a perfect patsy for Chinese attack. China does not want to destroy us because they need our markets, but want us to be weaken enough to pull out of the Far East and Western Pacific and cede the area to Chinese influence. Our gov and Wall Street did a good job in killing our wealth, all China needs is a crazy Iran to carry out the coup d’grace.
