AP informs us that a reformist newspaper in Iran has a story on a new course to be taught in high schools in Iran beginning in September:
Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards paramilitary units plan to teach drone-hunting to school students, an Iranian newspaper reported Monday.
The report by pro-reform Etemad daily quoted Gen. Ali Fazli, acting commander of the Guard’s Basij militia, as saying the new program will be taught as part of a “Defensive Readiness” lesson in high schools from late September.
And just how would these drones be “hunted”? By hacking them, of course:
He did not elaborate but the plan suggests students would be taught how to track and bring down drone aircraft by hacking their computer systems.
But students could never hack a drone, could they?
I’m calling dibs on the Persian translation of “See something, hack something”.
