So, is it ok to deploy malware to blow up nuclear facilities and to not expect retaliation?
Strange times indeed...
Mandiant has named a new threat group, APT42, that it says functions as the cyberspy arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which has plotted to murder US citizens including former National Security Advisor John Bolton. While its financial backers turn their attention to assasination attempts and other …
And if Stuxnet had been an effective counter to the slave trade, then its use then would have been perfectly OK as well.
You might however want to do a bit of research about Stuxnet and the slave trade to understand why Stuxnet wouldn't have been an effective tool against slavery in the 1800's.
And Iran were also involved in lots of the deaths in Iraq, so no impertinence in regard to me mentioning Iraq.
If you want to pretend Iran isn't on the ground with active military forces controlling, or trying to control, the governance of the places mentioned (and others), so be it, but that doesn't alter the fact that they are.
Spoken like the murderous John Bolton and the Yiddish mafia Colony in the middle east! I don't see Iran responsible for the killing of over 5 million Arabs since the creation of the illegal colony if the Yiddish mafia for wars pushed by the same mafia rhat has strangling hold on all U.S aspect of life since Trueman! and every American knows who we are talking about . And who is occupying the counties up you mention again? Palestine has been occupied by the murderous Yiddish mafia Colony more rhan 70 years. Iraq, Syria, Libya totally destroyed occupied by rhe U.S to protect the colony Trump even said it out loud. Should I more?
Mandiant's declarations are not enough. Mandiant must bring proofs to its claims.
I have no problem to see IRGC considered a terrorist organisation because it murders people. But there's a double standard there. Iranian nuclear scientists were killed and neither the MEK nor the Mossad are declared terrorist organisations by the Western countries.
== Bring us Dabbsy back! ==
Iran has explicitly stated that they are going to nuke Israel off the face of the earth as soon as they have the capability
Israel has stated it was willing to attack Iran. With your logic, Iran is right to kill Israelis.
Israel has between 80 to 400 nuclear warheads. It can vitrify Iran and all its neighbours.
== Bring us Dabbsy back! ==
It is alleged that "Israel has between 80 to 400 nuclear warheads."
Indeed, it probably "can vitrify Iran and all its neighbours." but it hasn't. In fact, because of the threat Iran now poses to them, many of Iran's neighbours have signed peace treaties with Israel.
So either Israel doesn't have the warheads (but they probably do), or it isn't intent on a genocidal rampage and would prefer not to use the warheads. Iran however continuously calls for the elimination of Israel.
"With your logic, Iran is right to kill Israelis." - no, your logic is wrong - it would be illogical of Israel not to do something about the threat to kill millions made by the genocidal morons in charge of Iran.
If you need sources for Iran's threats against Israel, there are far too many to list here - just use Google to find them yourself.
Israel is an illegal occupation nothing more nothing less. Its responsible for all the wars and conflicts in the entire region and the death of over 5 million Arabs sofar those wars were pushed my the Yiddish mafia that has tight grips on the all aspects of U.S citizens life. If you don't know this then you are fooling yourself.
Iran are Observer members and Israel has applied for Dialogue Partner status. However, I think you might be confusing SCO and Collective Security Treaty Organization, which is the mutual defence treaty, similar to NATO. But Iran aren't members of that, so both SCO and CSTO are irrelevant as far as deterring Israel from nuking Iran if it wished.
Iran wants to nuke Israel as soon as it can build the weapons. Israel hasn't nuked anyone, despite allegedly having the capability since the 60s or 70s. That may of course change when Iran gets close to launching its planned attack on Israel.
Given how badly the neighbours are to it, Israel is an amazingly good neighbour to have.
It's not a court of law, just an infosec report, so no proof needed. Believe it or don't, the choice is yours.
The genocidal maniacs in charge of Iran consider both to be terrorists. I'm sure you understand why "Western countries" might cut certain entities some slack if they take action against the Iranian nuclear weapons program.
If you are smart enough, you can see those Mossad puss1es coming from a mile away. Just carry your knifes and hopefully a gun. They try to kill a lot, but they fail a lot too. Been there.
