While no final decisions have been made, Defense Secretary Robert Gates is expected to recommend the creation of a new military command to face the growing threat from cyber warfare, a senior U.S. official told NBC News on Tuesday.
According to the official, the program would not be on the level of a separate combatant command. Instead, the likely recommendation would be to create a "sub-unified command" that would focus entirely on combating cyber warfare but exist under the current Strategic Command.

yesterday i looked at an ant and had no desire to conquer or enslave it....i feel like an outcast on this merry planet.
i ended up feeding it for i realised one gets nowhere by conquering ants....the environmentalist will always get ya in the end no matter how much you whine and rage.

not boolean enough for ya self esteem?
i think its all about its ego...i do believe that ant had not the ego problems to try to conquer me,it was smarter.

You can have my internet when you pry it from my cold dead fingers!
Seriously though I really think the whole cyber warfare excuses might lead to me not being able to use the most resourceful thing on the entire planet, the internet!
By taking away our most wonderful means of information is another way to enslave us from knowing the truth. But I think they know that. Now they will probably start putting in clauses for the definition of cyber warfare and cyber terrorism so they will have a reason to use this. Download and music lately? Slap the label of cyber terrorist on yourself! It will probably come to this someday.

I'd love a job like that. Just messing with computers all day, poking and prodding and stuff. Imagine the things you could learn. The skills you'd walk away with. You'd learn IT security knowledge that would carry over into the civilian world and be worth a fortune.
I'm probably not smart enough.
