    When the US is involved in Cyber attack it is often praised as an effective and somewhat legitimate way of attacking other countries while when other countries does it against the US it is portrayed as an act of terrorism

    OK, but the USA can just do the same thing to Iran, and probably more effectively. Doesn't seem like the best strategy.

    Anyone wanting to learn more about this should definitely check out the documentary Zero Days 📺. While strengthening our defenses (both in government and corporate spheres) against these kinds of attacks is never a bad idea, this video seems to leave out the fact that in the US we are very much so engaging offensively on the cyber warfare front.

    Fearmongering to convince Americans that Iran is a threat enough to give Trump a pass to start a war.

    As an American, I am much more scared of the US and Israel than Iran. The US is the bully of the world. Double standards allowing Iran not to have nuclear weapons, but yet Israel has many heads and constantly fighting it's neighbors.

    Make a video next on why America's government thinks its okay to take out a general of a nation with an airstrike, also why it's okay to over throw a democratic government to install a puppet government who aligns more with our interest.

    We are vulnerable to a cyberattack from…Monaco and the Vatican also. In other words, any nation. None of our infrastructure should be on the INTERNET, but on a CLOSED network as it is IMPOSSIBLE to be 100% secure on the internet.
