cyber war

The US is dong cyber warfare, duh!!

This isn’t exactly news, a couple of years ago the just war conference I often attend had cyber war as a topic..– although the extent of the program is news, as is the idea that the cyber war unit is getting more resources..

Reading the whole article, I don’t see any mention of the problem of non-combatant immunity… They say that the attacks comply with US law, but not that they directly consider the impact on non-combatants.

The article quotes one comm prof from Utah who says something like ‘rhetoric will lead to real war’… umm–dude, cyber war isn’t just words, it’s action taken via the internet which has REAL impacts on REAL human beings…  that’s what war looks like.
