    Pakistan's plan for the "coldblooded murder of the Internet" ~ ars technica

    Yes, isolation & obscurantism ... what a way to go ... :rolleyes:

    There is a difference between censorship & obscurantism. You just can't turn the clock back to the 7th Century, no matter how hard you try, reality will always find a way in.

    Lol, grow your bandwidth by 50% each year, and destroy the internet, cute. This crap will be bypassed, like every other measure that's been put into place anywhere.

    I think that you underestimate Pakistan's ability, & desperate need, not to be culturally contaminated by most of the rest of the known world, & for it to remain ideologically isolated in the medieval era.

    This topic would fit well in a political forum which we are not.
