Obama’s new war doctrine: ‘Cyber dominance’

dreamstimefree_4927631Now this is change you can count on. China has been building their cyber warfare units for years, and have been attacking us on small scale as test to their effectiveness. By creating a department of cyber warfare, we will have the ability to counter foreign cyber intrusions. With pretty much everything in the world run by computer today, anything else is suicidal. Cyber attacks by foreign elements can shut down entire energy grids supplying energy to major parts of this country.

The US military is moving ahead with plans to create its first “cyber command” designed to bolster America’s potential to wage digital warfare as well as defend against mounting cyber threats, officials said on Friday.

After President Barack Obama announced Friday his plans to overhaul cyber security policy, Defense Secretary Robert Gates was expected to soon formally propose the new cyber command that will be overseen by a four-star officer, Pentagon officials told AFP.

    It has been false image that has been painted of the terrorists most have been college educated and professionals who make up the leading factors in the terrorists. Yet it is painted as if they are the poor and illiterate. Cyber is the battle field they will choose and it will be the field that our enemy will choose too.
