    How stupid are both Hamas & Israeli governments

    opening up another front in the war that these governments (both being terrorist) open up on each other. The only result is that innocent civilians are harmed and that their opposition becomes more enraged and do punches back hurting yet more innocents.

    In the run up to Christmas what I want most is peace in this world, not slaughter of innocents on behalf of self serving politicians.

      I don't know how stupid both actors are. But I like the intelligence of The Register readers who've down cutter your silly comment. You either don't understand the danger Iran poses, or your one of those 'peace at any price' silly people, who will be forced to convert or die.

    Thanks Jessica Lyons Hardcastle!

    For including the word "petrol", to disambiguate the article, before I got deep in it

    Isn't this the sort of thing Biden's mob and western affiliates are always claiming Putin's mob are wickedly planning to do to The Free World America ?

      What's your point? Every competent government in the world has state-affiliated hacking groups. The US is completely correct in accusing Russia of having them; Russia is correct in accusing the US of the same.
