Why attackers can’t take down Amazon.com

Anonymous tried to take down Amazon.com with an intense traffic spike, but the site has ample server capacity to withstand it.

Amazon mystifies me. They ran for years without turning a profit, they seem to sell everything to everyone, and they are better prepared for cyber-terror than the Feds. I have this theory that they are a vast corporate cyberstate that is preparing to assume control of Planet Earth. Our new World State Holy Scripture will be the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition (available for purchase from Amazon.com!).
