|"I live in the US, and of course we seldom read stories from other points of view. I did read this story from IBT; here's an excerpt:
'Two Chinese military officers from the Academy of Military Science, Beijing, have announced that the country must make mastering cyber-warfare a military priority to protect the country from a US-led "Internet war."
The two Chinese military officials, Senior Colonel Ye Zheng and Zhao Baoxian, are strategists from the People's Liberation Army's Academy of Military Sciences.
The essay by two officials in the Communist Party-controlled China Youth Daily says “Beijing is focused on honing its cyber-warfare skills, and sees “an unfettered Internet as a threat to its Communist Party-run state.”
"Just as nuclear warfare was the strategic war of the industrial era, cyber-warfare has become the strategic war of the information era, and this has become a form of battle that is massively destructive and concerns the life and death of nations," they wrote in the Party-run paper.'
(From China urged to make cyber-warfare a military priority.)"

|"Of course, authortarian states would claim that developing cyberwar capabilities is for self-defense. To openly admit that a potential side benefit is controling communications isn't very wise. "
