Most stunning about the article is that this is just now being discussed by the military. The concept of cyber-warfare certainly isn't anything new, and the issue with attacks on Georgia's computer systems and Web sites shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, much less the U.S. government. The concept of cyber-warfare has been around since at least the late 1970s or early 1980s (anyone else remember War Games?), and discussions took place after the 9/11 attacks questioning the readiness of the U.S. to respond to a cyber-attack, either defensively or offensively.
