The Pentagon's new "Cyberstrategy 3.0" treats our global communications highway as a zone of potential warfare. ++ The approach focuses on a concept of deterrence, whereby American infrastructure will be beefed up to a point that renders it capable of surviving any attack. ++ Militarizing cyberspace is a costly strategy with limited benefits. ++ "As with human viruses, hostile computer bugs will evade our best efforts at quarantine. A new (and expensive) obsession with cybersecurity is not what this traumatized country needs."
