Is the US contributing to the militarization of cyberspace? Cyberwar... a conflict without foot soldiers, guns, or missiles.

Instead the attacks are launched by computer hackers. Digital spy rings. Information thieves. Cyberarmies of kids, criminals, terrorists - some backed by nation states.

  • But is cyber war really a threat?

  • Can cyber war actually cripple the United States?

  • Or is the language just sturm und drang spun up by a coalition of major arms manufacturers, the Pentagon, and Internet security firms allied with China bashers aimed at launching a new Cold War in Asia?

China has been accused of hacking into,

  • the Pentagon

  • the International Monetary Fund

  • the French government

  • the CIA, well as stealing information from major U.S. arms maker Boeing and the Japanese firm Mitsubishi.
