IOW, if some terrorist group manages to get set up where they can announce
BGP, they can toy essentially with whatever they like, until people/their
upstream gets a clue and installs filters.

-before we get too hysterical, it may be worth noting that to date the
-problems have been caused by lack of clue, not lack of ethics, morals,
-or empathy.  not that this is reason less for caution, but it might
-guide our reaction towards the actual, as opposed to imagined, problems.
