Cyber Attacks May Be Responded To With Convential Military Force

The Pentagon has concluded that computer sabotage coming from another country can constitute an act of war, a finding that for the first time opens the door for the U.S. to respond using traditional military force.

I’ve seen movies with this plot… nothing good can come from this. Hackers are NOT stupid people… there is so much DeRp in the video on the linked page.

    “Hackers are NOT stupid people…” They’re certainly stupid for attacking high priority targets that can spark wars.

    And i cant help but feel this has something to do with Wikileaks, or maybe Piratebay and Lulzsec.

    Internet. Srsbsns. If you’re gonna start a war, do so by infecting the entirety of the pentagon with a Nyancat-based attack lol

      Why is it wikileaks only leaked American secrets?
      Why didn’t they leak Russian secrets?
      Probably because the KGB would come after them.
      End of story!

        Actually, it’s because Julian Assange has a personal vendetta against the United States. I applaud the leaking of secrets when it reveals some of the disgusting things that various governments get into, but Assange himself is a pretty terrible person (and he’s the last person you want to have on your side).

    This will be fun…now we get to see how balsy the gubmint is since probably 90% of attacks come from China and Russia..mostly China. I think school children in China learn reverse engineering of Windows. Good luck making war with China and Russia *runs and hides in the mountains*.

    There are reasons that we’ve been at war continuously for decades. Gotta keep those defense industry voters employed, by golly. Any war that keeps the kickbacks and votes flowing is a just war.

      Yeah, and now the Pentagon is buying military equipment from foreign contractors!
      Just great. Whatever happened to buy “made in America”?

    And of course, when all you’ve got is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail.
