    that the definition of a bully was someone who punches people in the snout but runs home crying to mummy if he cops one back.

    WTF?

    Does anyone actually trust the US Government, or the FBI, when it comes to Iran?

    Given that the USA and Israel have expended so much energy and money attacking Iran in so many ways, what credibility is there left.

    Just as with the American War in VietNam, the USA lost so much face (were so embarrassed) by a bunch of clerics in Iran kicking out their anointed sheep and having to close down all the NSA monitoring stations that kept an eye on Russian rocket activity.

    The simplest solution to all this alleged hacking is to cut the InterNet connections. But that would NSA and GCHQ out of business.
