Is Flame virus fallout a Chinese, Russian plot to control the Internet? – Red Tape.

Nader Nazemi

Has the U.S. government been caught with its virtual hands in the world’s cookie jar? And might it lose control of the Internet as a consequence? 

If you were among the forces on the planet wanting to wrest control of the Internet from the U.S.-friendly agencies that manage it, that’s the story you’d surely want to tell. 

But things are rarely what they seem.  The barrage of Flame news – including word that Flame and Stuxnet appear to have common authorship — should not be viewed in a vacuum.

A group of nations led by China, Russia and several Middle Eastern countries would love to see the end of U.S. dominance over the operational control of the Internet, and these nations think they have found their vehicle for accomplishing that: A U.N. body called the International Telecommunications Union.
