    lol there is only a 45 mbit/s connection for the whole country? [​IMG] no wonder it was attacked so easily!
    even GBAtemp has 20 times more bandwidth than that...

    I'd like to know why this happened, not to mention why they can only have elections every 20 years rather then 4 like most civilized nations.

    Well, Burma has been under a military dictatorship for a while, and the nation suffers from severe corruption and political turmoil. The attack could've been one of a goal to get against the nation's government.

    Either that or its 4chan.
