Check out the latest Drudge Report. Says Monday story will break in papers that US military "considered" cyber-terrorism against SERBS, but decided against it. I'm sure this will give renewed confidence to the Chinese, Iranians, etc. who are certain to try some stunts come dec. 31/Jan 01, knowing the US is too chicken-livered to even go after a bunch of near-nomads. Nothing like signalling your weak side well in advance. MILITARY INTELLIGENCE= ULTIMATE OXYMORON

A radio show talking with a general (ex) talking about some book stated without going into detail that we did use Cyber-warfare against Iraq? Seems also that China used Cyber attacks against Taiwan and stopped after Taiwan struck back.
Genies out of this bottle long time ago. There has also been stories about the government detecting "trap doors" to get back into software that was fixed off shore in India and China.
We have nothing to worry about because their our friends. Always have been always will be. Unless you read the doctrine of the general military strategy from China. The U.S. is not mentioned by name but every reference to "hegemonomist" (sp?) is a clear reference to the U.S. and make no mistake that they consider the U.S. as their biggest threat.
If there is problems in China what better way to distract a restless populace than start a war to rally people to the government and sacrifice.
Are wishy washy stand for our friends could make a Taiwan grab seem pretty tempting.
