[liberationtech] Is the Cyberwar beginning?

Political science generally defines war as over 1,000 casualties per
year as a result of political conflict. Being a political scientist, I
find cyberwar meaningless. Perhaps information conflict is a better
term? The word "war" also generates fear, and state response, as well
as extraordinary measures to deal with it, which are not always nice
(think PATRIOT Act and NDAA 1021). Using the word war can escalate
conflict. So lets rather not use it.
Thanks for initating this discussion.
