I know some guys in my school who can play hell with a lot of computers. I think US would win in information/cyberwar. We got a lot of patriotic nerds willing to hack for the US of A.
Computers had their birth in America

Many of the finest examples of computer cowboys are American, but many if not most of them live in other countries. China has a lot of American ex-pat hackers, as do many other countries. Uncle Sam ran all the hackers out of the country, or locked them up then offered them jobs in exchanged for clemency. There's no loyalty there however, and given the first oppurtunity, every one of those extorted professionals will kick their former persecutor, current master, square in the balls.
most of em are silenced cause it would cause fear in public and some people would abandon the services, bank, shop or what ever the target was.
Even if program langue was english, i doubt it will bring much of challenge and it isnt only English, good math helps a lot, unless you just script that is coding already existing code, im not professional on matter, but i would say you can do it many ways. Basically its creation, your imagenation, time and processing capacity is only limits.

Yes, there are lots of ex-pat hackers and that's where I think America could have an edge. American hackers planted inside other countries could be pretty effective the networks inside that country, but again, bringing a network down through the old Denial of Service tactic has not been shown useful during a battle, to my knowledge. You would not stop the Internet with a DoS attack. You can stop a group of websites like the SCO Unix attack where something like 30,000 zombie-PCs were used.
