A New Kind of War

To my understanding, cyberwar is a tactic countries would use to breakdown another country's infracture. "Countries are most likely moving away from conventional methods such as battle tanks and aircraft".

Information Technology runs American society. If other nations have the capacity to interfere with our databases America would be vulnerable and at a loss.


"Cyberwarfare techniques will transform military operations in the 21st century as much as aircraft transformed warfare in the 2nd World War."


"Cyberwar technologies are easy to acquire and easy to implement, and it will not be long before these concepts are going to become a reality".


The advantage of using cyberwar tactics would be fewer causalities and you may be able to win by disabling the other side's information processing capabilities without sacrificing soldiers in the field.

In a recent Newsday article, by AP writer, Lolita C. Baldor states how China is "building cyberwarfare capabilities". Countries have the tools just don't know how to use them, slowly but surely they will. "Potential Chinese targets in the U.S., according to the report, would likely include Pentagon networks and databases to disrupt command and control communications, and possibly corrupt encrypted data.The report notes, however, that penetrating such classified systems would be time consuming and difficult".
