1. And, like in Egypt, that will be a major mistake
Like on an Anonymous forum, someone said "If they do take down the internet, then everyone will be out in the streets. Normal people, not even nerds like us, will want revolution if their internet is taken."

Someone else made the point that the internet is the only thing keeping a lot of people inside and not on the streets.

Someone else made the point that shutting down the internet will shut down the economy and destroy it, and that the idiots at Homeland Security will manage to do what even the banksters haven't done yet.

So they can try it, and they probably will, but it will blow up in their faces.
