Terror Victims Seize Control of Iranís Internet

American victims of Iranian terrorism were permitted by a U.S. court to assume control over Iran’s Internet licenses and domains in recompense for crimes perpetrated by the regime in Tehran, according to court documents.

The decision means that Iran could effectively be kicked off the Internet once control of its “top level domains” are transferred to the American terror victims, who have sought more than a billion dollars in damages from Iran.

Court documents detailing the decision and requesting control over Iran’s licenses have been served to the U.S. Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which oversees web domains on behalf of the Department of Commerce.

If this case is ever collected, the Saudi’s will find themselves liable for 9/11 to the tune of something north of four billion bucks.

No, they can still look at sites on the net but they won’t be able to host them.

The reason Iranian schools don’t have drivers education and sex education on the same day: too hard on the camels.

Iranians. From now on the Iranian websites and their content will be controlled by the new owners whom the Iranians terrorized.

Does that include sheep and goats, or just chickens and geese?
