    (CNN) -- The Internet hackers group Anonymous plans to hack Iran on Sunday, according to a press release published on their website. The group wants to use International Workers' Day, which commemorates the first national general strike in the United States, as an opportunity to reignite last year's protests in Iran.

    Exactly how they intend to "attack" Iran remains to be seen. The sophistication of their previous attacks ranges from the denial-of-service overloading of web servers (this simply knocks a website out) to the exploitation of code and accessing of private data (more like the hacking seen in the movies).

    The attacks are scheduled to start at 5 a.m. GMT (1 a.m. ET) on Sunday.

    last time I checked, we haven't stopped attacking Iran since 1953 with the ousting of Mossadegh.

    JERUSALEM – Israel's defense minister says even if Iran develops nuclear arms, it is unlikely to bomb Israel.

    Defense Minister Ehud Barak's comments appear to be an attempt to prepare a jittery Israel for the possibility of Tehran getting a nuclear weapon. The remarks were published Thursday in the Haaretz newspaper.

    Haaretz asked whether Barak thought Iran would drop a nuclear bomb on Israel. The minister responded: "Not on us and not on any other neighbor."

    Yeah even with how war-hungry the US and Israel are I'm doubting we attack Iran, still plenty of afghanis and libyans we "need" to blow up.

    Can I name one we need to blow up? Absolutely not


    That's the opinion of our beloved bureacrats, not of me.
