    The spectrum of warfare is transiting from the traditional land, air and sea to cyber space.

    So in future what proportion of battles will be fought in land, air and sea and what proportion of the battles will be waged in cyber space ?

    Of course it will expand on to the internet and wifi... and it will be expensive and wasteful and ultimately self defeating for everyone.

    Expensive and wasteful ? But the general perception is that cyber warfare is going to be cost effective and yet will be able to cause major damages to the enemy.

    Furthermore, as the Stuxnet attack on Iran's nuclear power plants showed, systems not connected to Internet can also be attacked

    If Stuxnet had caused a melt down and spewed radioactive waste across the continent, who gets the credit for that?

    If the US power grid is broken and 20,000 people in the hot regions die because the AC doesn't work in a power cut... is that the goal of cyber attacks? To kill off old people and pollute the environment?

    Stuxnet showed there are moles in Iran... but there are moles everywhere of course... even in the DNC releasing Hilary dirt, but then even that sort of thing has been twisted to suit their agenda, by claiming it was Russian Hackers...
