[liberationtech] Is the Cyberwar beginning?

Distinction should be made between 'classic' military cyber-force buildup (be it any type of resource), and privatized force. We can be assured, to a certain degree, that only agents of state (i.e. armies) have access to 'classic' strategic weapons. The same cannot be said about cyber weapons of similar (potential) magnitude.

Probably the most disturbing aspect of "cyberwar" is the newspeak rhetoric. War has always been a violent state of affairs between countries/nations/alliances, while "cyberwar" never needs to be explained or otherwise justified - it just *is*. "Cyberwar" exists by its own right, with no need to claim who's Side A and Side B. It is effectively the perfect vague, always-existing, Orwellian state of war of the new era.
