Anonymous defaces hundreds of Chinese websites

Anonymous is spreading its own particular messages of freedom against the Communist government of China this week. News.com reports that the hacker group has been launching cyber attacks on over 500 websites in that country. The sites have been defaced as a result of Anonymous' actions, with messages denouncing the Chinese leadership.

The message posted by Anonymous includes this phrase:

Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible, today websites are hacked, tomorrow it will be your vile regime that will fall. So expect us because we do not forgive, never. What you are doing today to your Great People, tomorrow will be inflicted to you. With no mercy.

The websites affected by the cyber attacks also have a music track running in the background, playing Baba O'Riley from The Who. Anonymous posted up a list of all the sites it attacked in China on the Pastebin site. These attacks started happening after a Twitter message from the Anonymous China page encouraged hackers from that country and all over the world " ... to be part of Anonymous China, fighting for justice!"

Ironically, the Chinese government is highly suspected of funding its own hacker teams that try to attack and steal information from US government and business servers.

Awesome!!! We've got lots of folks walkin up to the NWO. Laugh if they will, it's a fight and a fight it is! We'll beat'em to a pulp!

I completely disagree. I don't like China's government and I hate Anonymous. Two wrongs don't make a right. There is a right way to affect change in a foreign government, and the way Anonymous is doing is not right. They are evil terrorists and they need to be imprisoned for life. Period. Let the Chinese do what they will to those idiots if they ever get caught.

Yeah I can see where you are coming from as well. What they are doing is not right but how are you to catch these people? Government's have probably been trying and not been able to inflict too much damage on their degree of power.

From this "Two wrongs don't make a right."
to this: "Let the Chinese do what they will to those idiots if they ever get caught."

Sure sounds like hypocrisy.
I mean, there may be justice brought to them, all fine by me, but boy "what they will" is quite drastic, leaves the doors open to incredibly disgusting punishments that don't right this either, but instead are inhumane and something anyone who advocates justice should be ashamed of.

Yeah I thought so. It just confused me for a second because they're actually doing something that has good potential to do something right, but at the same time they might be screwing with the wrong people. I don't know much about China's government but I know it would probably be very very angry at the message being conveyed by Anon.
