The US government sure has an interesting way of defining war these days. Just a few months after the Obama administration played word games with the public by insisting that air strikes in Libya were just "kinetic military action," not acts of war, the Pentagon has now come on the record stating that it will treat all acts of cyber-hacking against the US as "acts of war."

The announcement came on the heels of a supposed cyber-attack that occurred a few weeks ago against defense contractor Lockheed Martin. Officials say when hacking incidents like this occur in the future, retaliation in the form of reverse cyber-attacks, economic sanctions, and even "military strike[s]" may take place.


members.beforeitsnews.com...

Has anyone else pointed this out? Does anyone still believe that we are the good guys anymore? (on ATS, prolly not) The arrogant empire marches on.. a looming ground war in Libya, a renewed vigor on bombing Pakistan with remote controlled hellfire missles, threatening the Iraqi govt that they will stay in Iraq past Dec 31st, etc etc. the list goes on and so does the imperial war...
