    Stuxnet, anyone? The Iranians didn't like it much but who cares what they like.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    Gotta do what ya gotta do. I for one am not a supporter of the "rules of war". All that matters is winning.

    Never happen. With the current crowd in Washington, there would be committee meetings, conferences, trial balloons and numerous articles in the NY Times. administration spokesman would make the rounds to MSNBC, CNN and other news media (FOX omitted). If it was a Muslim Country (OOPs, a Mid Eastern/SE Asian country), the current President would side with them (as he said in his Writings (akin to MAO's Little red Book). It would be interesting as most of the foreign hackers were trained in US Universities.

    This.

    We have built up such an army, I don't think anyone would have a chance of taking us on in a traditional fight. If someone is intent on causing problems for us, it will be terrorist or cyber-warfare. Imagine the chaos if they managed to take down the internet.

    They could stop us from checking O/R! That would be an act of war!

    Right now, probably true.

    In 10 years? Maybe not.

    In 20 years? Probably not.


    Look at the shit China and Russia are building RIGHT NOW.

    Russian T-50 and the Chinese J-20.
