Thor's Hammer

In legend, literature, and myth the world has been introduced to an assortment of magical weapons: from Arthur’s enchanted sword, Excalibur; to Thor’s magic hammer, Mjollnir; and to Luke Skywalker’s fabled Light Saber. In every instance, the good guy and his trusty weapon eventually foils the plots, plans, and devices of the bad guys. Good always triumphs over evil in the movies. It gives the audience hope. And hope is a powerful thing, as it is the next of kin to faith.
Thor And His Hammer

Recently the world learned of a powerful, new, magic weapon that rivals even the Lone Ranger’s silver bullets; that allowed him to disarm the villain with a single shot to the hand, making the villain drop his gun without so much as a drop of blood being spilt, and wounding only the villain’s pride. Such is the weapon the world now has knowledge of: The Stuxnet Worm.
The Stuxnet Worm is a masterpiece of cyber engineering that puts even Q’s imagination to shame. Conceived in the mind of the enemy of Iran, the Stuxnet Worm is estimated by Microsoft to have required more than 10,000 man hours to create. The sophistication and complexity of the technology employed with the Worm suggests that only a major Cyber Power like the United States or Israel could have ordered the hit.
So sophisticated, that it was designed to escape and then evade detection if discovered; it was programmed to penetrate the most complex security systems and then disappear after completing its mission: the destruction of the Iranian nuclear program. It targeted the nuclear processing facility controls at Natanz and then the turbine at Bashehr. In addition to setting the Iranian  nuclear program back a year or two, the worm has likely infected hundreds of thousands of computers within the Iranian military industrial complex, where it lies dormant; for now.
Shades of Green Lantern and his Power Ring:
“In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight; Let those who follow evil’s might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s Light!"
The Lone Ranger And Horse, Silver 
War between Israel and Iran, which seemed imminent this past summer, is now on hold as SHTF America predicted on October 16th. The emnity has not ceased, in fact it has been exacerbated by the assasination of two of Iran's top nuclear experts in recent weeks. But for now, the world has avoided nuclear war.

Iran has been forced to regroup and reassess its priorities. The priority of the Supreme Council of the Ayatollahs is to prevent "regime change". Look for the agreements between Iran and the UN in the coming weeks as we predicted. Afterall, Peace is the Spirit of the Season.
Clearly, the Lone Ranger rides again: “Hi-yo, Silver, away!"
