Surprised that no one has tried to make a connection between this discovery (of the botnets) and the (US Government's) request that Twitter remain online during the recent election protests in Iran.
Could it be applied to the USA, by chance? Think, for example, of military expenditures or more recently of the anti-ballistic missile defence system. Does the argument apply? Why or why not?
Just asking for opinions - esp. from American citizens. Really.
