From what I've known years ago, the military owns the Internet, either by creating it or buying out the creators. It was first used in 1945 - 1947. The sole purpose was to transmit images and other data quicker than the conventional means that were available. After such time, the soldiers were giving pornographic pictures that came quickly, and then they sent images back just as quick. Since then, the Internet has been coined to be so famous because it was used to send porno/nude pictures world-wide, in a matter of minutes or so. The Internet was then used to send letters, and all other data we know of today, that was back then.
I was reading also on the internet, (I forget the site), but the military (US Government) said that they want the Internet back because they rightfully own it. Those are their words. Also, in case any of you don't know this, the US Government is joined with ICAAN
, the main squeeze over domain registrations. But the US Government says they own it. If I can find the post (if I bookmarked it), I'll post it so others can read it.
This is old information though, and from what I learned about the Internet, the US Government has the rights to it. But I don't agree with it either.
So,, the bottom line?...... watch, and you'll all see that the US Government will have some involvement in controlling the Internet because of this incident.... and it wouldn't surprise me if they, themselves are the actual culprits behind this current event of trying to crash the internet.
Maybe they're testing the crashability of it, but when it failed, blamed it on a Patsy
Who knows? Either way it goes, I'm already prepared for it, and mainly because I have always expected it to happen... probably sooner than we think.
