Anonymous has vowed to fight for the right to express any opinion anyway over the Internet. The group has also issued an express warning to those that stand in the way of the freedom of expression. They claim that any group doing this should expect a massive attack from the hackers, as they will struggle to defend freedom as is the foundation of their movement.

The group is now being credited with a YouTube video that specifically declares war against terrorists and terrorism.
