Inside the Beltway
“Cyberwar is here. Now what?” asks Commentary writer Abe Greewald.
“In accordance with the new doctrine of Western war, weve taken the first step in response to attack: apology. After 9/11, we apologized to Muslims. Today Hillary Clinton is traveling the world apologizing to foreign governments for leaked State Dept. cables,” he continues.
“Thats fine as far as it goes, but saying, ‘Sorry, were weak’ doesnt do much to stop the attacks still under way. As someone recently put it, ‘The war is on. And everyone ought to spend some time thinking about it, discussing it with others, preparing yourselves so you know how to act if something compels you to make a decision. Be very careful not to err on the side of inaction.’ Those are the words of a contributor to a cyber-anarchist site called whyweprotest.net. Once again, the enemy has a better handle on the war than we do.”
