A Weapon We Can’t Control
From the article...
The United States must now consider entering into discussions, anathema though they may be, with the world’s major powers about the rules governing the Internet as a military domain.
Any agreement should regulate only military uses of the Internet and should specifically avoid any clauses that might affect private or commercial use of the Web. Nobody can halt the worldwide rush to create cyberweapons, but a treaty could prevent their deployment in peacetime and allow for a collective response to countries or organizations that violate it.

I've been exposed to how people think about global security concerns for a couple of months, so I have no idea what I'm talking about. One thing I do suspect is this issue is probably a lot worse than we can possibly imagine. Another thing I suspect is there are some people working on this issue who are very aggressive in their point-of-view. And that makes me shudder.
