Now we know why the US is working on classifying cyber-attacks as legitimate acts of war that can have military reprecusions.
The question is, who is reacting? The US or N. Korea to the new cyber-war field?

My worry is that if one rogue hacker were to attack the US, (in any country) would that mean the US would launch a military campaign against the entire nation???

Interesting, first Act of War Pentagon Sets Stage for U.S. to Respond to Computer Sabotage With Military Force now this...

I agree with you, the "cyber war" false flag is imminent. I was thinking about this last night, and i thought of a great weapon for someone to use. Make a virus to "take down" ever bank / online banking service in a country. Blame it on someone, the economy goes to shambles, people freak out, then become the big badasses and take down the "hacker" and the economy is "saved"
