Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad expresses livid anger and grave concern, a novel computer worm has crippled Iran’s industrial complex. Computers responsible for nuclear, water, energy and sewage facilities are all compromised, Iranian programmers cannot find a solution.

Authorities speculate that the complex computer worm is capable of striking anywhere and can seize control of any industrial plant.
Computer network specialists who were called in by Iran to solve this issue are baffled by the complexity of the worm. Reports from the special programming consultants cite that the virus started in the computers of several individuals, who were casually browsing various sites on the world wide internet. From there, the worm ‘piggybacked’ on login credintials from these employees, making its way into the network’s mainfrom and burrowing deep within Iran’s algorithms for the facilities operations.
The nuclear facility is supposed to go live in only two weeks. It remains unconfirmed as to what horrific fate has fallen to the employees whose computers served as a portal for this devastating worm.
Iran’s chief of operations in the Ministry of Project Management, Mahmoud Jafari, said a team is trying create a novel program to remove the malware from Iran’s nuclear industrial complex. Iran Republic’s News Agency does not give a time frame in which Iranian program managers believe this remedy can be completed.
Many in Iran believe that this worm– which dubs itself as Stuxnet — is the product of American super-coders. Officials in Iran’s government say the Stuxnet worm has spread to many of their other vital industries, such as electricity, sewage and water management. With just a few permutations, the virus could cripple Iran and make its burgeoning industrial complex inoperative.
Several Iranian officials have stated it is no coincidence that this virus has come upon them only weeks after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad upset American officials at his UN address. During the address, Ahmadinejad cited that Iran has a natural right to produce nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad went on to imply that Iran can and will use nuclear technology as a means of control upon Israel. American officials walked out on Ahmadinejad’s speech, giving many Iranians great fear of retaliation.
Iran is a member of the Axis-of-Evil. President George W. Bush warned that Iran has aided in providing terrorists to kill American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iranian Imams have made it no secret that once they do have nuclear technology, that Iran will strike Israel with nuclear bombs. Such actions could start a World War, as China and Russia support Iran while essentially all Western Nations stand firmly against a nuclear Iran.
The United States, France, England, China and Russia constitute the world’s largest nuclear powers, meaning a war involving all of these nations invokes M.A.D. doctrine. Both China and Russia have expressed concern about this new Stuxnet worm as well, as analyzation of it reveals it can be both a ground or airborne pathogen to computer networks. With just but a loose wireless and cellular signal, it can infiltrate any facility. It could cripple the industrial complex or China and Soviet-heart Russia in only minutes.
Today is a new week of panic for military officials in China, Russia, Iran and North Korea. There is an increase in electronic chatter that reveals a forming belief that America has mastered a new form of electronic warfare, wear computer systems controlling a nation’s core functions can be easily accessed and crippled, at will.
American officials have denied such involvement or malicious attacks upon Iran, despite the nation’s insistence on building illegal nuclear facilities and then starting a World War by destroying a defenseless Israel with nuclear power. This leaves further speculation that if notorious American computer programmers such as AECH or even Four Channel may be involved in these operations.
What is known is that this worm causes major concern. If there exists a program that can easily control Iran’s nuclear facilities only weeks before their launch, who says the same program cannot order an Iranian nuclear missile to “ARM” itself and then secretly launch anywhere on the globe. Everyone is in danger: China, Russia, America, South America, France, England and Germany. The list is endless and all of our lives are endangered by a nuclear Iran.
Officials are concerned and the best course of action is to stop Iran’s nuclear production, by sanction or by force if necessary. This latest display of panic by Iran shows the third-world nation is not developed enough to maintain nuclear power. It cannot keep its computer industrial complex safe and therefore its owning of nuclear secrets presents a danger to every other nation on Earth.
This global threat warrants US and UN intervention. Nuclear threats from non-core nations warrant military action of any force to remove any threat the Security Council deems worthy. If America unanimously deems Iran a threat, the UN is required to support and assist America in dismantling a nuclear Iran by any means, including an invocation nuclear force in the heart of Tehran.
