The term cyber war/warfare is a misnomer and popular buzzword in certain political/IT/Intelligence communities and is used by some heavyweights in these communities to promote agendas and to sell the government goods and services. (Chertoff, McMullen, Alexander, & Clarke...) Most of the supposed threats discussed, while theoretically possible, are completely unfeasible in many different aspects, mostly due to resources and technical know how. The only reason I bought it because it was required for a course. Don't waste your money.

CYBER WAR The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It. Richard A. Clarke and Robert Knake give us a description of a new tool in warfare. It is an every man's description of the situation. Starting with tricking a missile defense system in a bombing attack to initial initial cyber attacks to cripple a country. I hope this wakens the sleeping giant from America's stupor. I am an infrastructure guy... I know the weaknesses of our system... how and where trojan code can be introduced in software systems... to devices down to firmware and chip level. Our systems from banking to air control down to the basic power, gas, water infrastructure is open. Let me know what you think...
