Stuxnet worm, an ominous harbinger

As if the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program, be they political, geological (earth quakes are frequent occurrences in Iran), environmental were not enough. now, we have the malware “stuxnet” that can create havoc within the system and either shut down the machines, or worse, cause severe instability in various sections, including the cooling systems of the rods. Proposing a nightmare scenario that could lead to the likes of Cheronbyl.

This only reinforces the belief that at the moment, given the present regime and its inability to govern a country and its stubborn refusal to heed IAEA protocol, it is only foolish to pursue such nuclear ambitions. But since when logic and sense has prevailed in this regime for this to be another example of it.
