Re: BREAKING: Iran Shutting Down Internet
Access to Google and Gmail was blocked in Iran on Sunday evening, Your Middle East's Tehran correspondent reports.

Abdolsamad Khoram Abadi, who is in charge of controlling Iranians' access to the Internet, confirmed the report for Iran Labour News Agency earlier today, saying the measure was taken due to frequent appeals made by the people.

if you are about to go to war, you need to make sure your proganda machine is not influenced by the truth. So they are going to heavily restrict access.

More like they are being turned off by other countries that are leaps and bounds above that rudimentary system they call technology. LOL

Re: BREAKING: Iran Shutting Down Internet
I disagree, any time a nation shuts off web access is a prelude to an internal clampdown. Especially if they plan on festivities and don't want any civilian leaks of operations

I say "dot"
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15793872


agreed to that, or they don't want word to get out to the world what they are up to. Communication blackouts are sometimes a prelude to an action of some sort via internally such as a clampdown as you suggest or an external action such as an attempted blockage of the Straight of Hormuz as an example or something else.
 Quoting: godzilla85


And what do you think your own government is going to do to this place and Google and the rest. Pull the plug thats what. Can't have everybody talking about troop movements when I'm sure the IRANIAN OFFICIALS themselves can still use the service.

True...
It was THE FAX MACHINE that ended the attempted coup against Yeltsin in Post-Soviet Russia.

In our time, if you shut down the internet, and cell phones, you shut down all access to non-government controlled information.

Re: BREAKING: Iran Shutting Down Internet
The appeals obviously amount to the Iranians being pissed off, and the Gov does not want them stirring the toilet bowl. They don't want fuel on the fires of war, which could end up being nuclear fuel.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24319279


I wonder if they trying to protect themselves from cyber warfare and attacks being launched by the US or Israel. Remember how their nuclear plants were attacked a while ago.


A destructive cyber worm designed to bring down industrial complexes has Iran's new nuclear power plant in its sights. And a nation such as Israel or China -- or even the United States -- could be behind it, experts say.

absolutely right. This is WW3 and we should be saying
that "was that a smart move" or "a stupid move". not whether it's

More sabre rattling or are they actually limiting their people from information about what they are doing?

It's much easier to control people who don't have the full picture... and much easier to prevent leaks about your plans when the Internet is disabled...

He said it was a response to an anti-Islam movie, mocking the prophet Mohammed, which was uploaded on YouTube recently and provoked anger throughout the Muslim world.


so why are you pimping this out like its the beginning of ww3 just for hits, hint, if you want hits, just keep clicking on your own article, dont pimp
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24225099



Ha ha, as if they've had enough time from September 11 when that movie became such a big issue, to today September 23, to completely migrate everyone's internet like that. This has been planned for six months bare minimum.
