Iran Cyber Attacks America and Saudi Arabia

Steven LeBlanc

Iran is attacking computer systems in the U.S. —Leon Panetta, U.S. Secretary of Defense implied such. He went on to say that America was at risk of a “cyber-Pearl Harbor”. Mr. Panetta said the attacks were probably the most devastating to ever hit the private sector.

In Saudi Arabia, more than 30,000 computers were paralyzed by the attack on the Saudi state oil company ARAMCO. Ras Gas was impacted in Qatar. It is believed that Iran was behind these attacks. Understand that Saudi Arabia fears an Iran that may go nuclear—the two are long time rivals in the Middle East.

Without a doubt there is a cyber-war that is escalating between the U.S. and Iran (and Israel). Iran believes America and Israel were responsible for the destructive virus Stuxnet that caused serious damage at Iran’s nuclear plants in Natanz and Bushehr.

A war between America and Iran has been in play for some months now—a cyber war. Without question it can be said that tensions are rising, not diminishing. Wars & rumors of war (Matthew 24:6), applies here; it looks like we are getting closer to an eventual war: will that war take place; we wait and watch.
