Cool story, bro.
First fallacy: Anonymous is a plural noun, not singular. It's not one thing with
a cohesive leadership, plan, and direction, it's a bunch of things all wandering in
the same semi-general direction. There is no singular "wants" to Anonymous.
Second fallacy: Evenif Anonymous as a whole wants one thing, there is no actual
evidence that the one thing is to be anything more than DDoS/defacement/media
hacks. They seem content at that.
Third fallacy: Never underestimate the value of a good media hack. Consider
the Maine, the Lusitania, the Gulf of Tonkin, and yellowcake uranium - all to some
extent media hacks.
Overall grade: B-.
