Islamic Iran enemy of Internet

This banner gives warning about Internet email and chat. It reads: "Warning! chat is enemy trap and email is a bullet fired by enemy in dark!" It is porduced by Intelligence department of Military Service unit of National Police force.

Ayatollah Khamenei's warned about undermining Islamic republic through Internet, he said: "American authorities say they have approved a 45 million dollar budget to defeat the Islamic Republic through the Internet." Iranian government agencies took it seriously and they are working measures to fight on Internet environment. To me, it sounds like a cyber battleground.

Iranian Internet is so damn slow that nothing passes through whether it would be soft war or hard war, the only thing that scares Islamic republic is flow of information. Exposure to information can make a huge difference in someones life, thought and indeed expectations from society and government.
