Don't be ridiculous.
Meh, I don’t know. I think it’s a pretty interesting strategic and philosophical question for the cyber era. I mean if they physically destroyed infrastructure, say a prominent shipping port, with a bomb that would be obvious right? What if they achieved the exact same end by dicking up the computer automation? What about screwing up the electric grid or water treatment? Still great financial hazard, physical destruction, and health risk to citizens. What would be our allowable response to such an “attack”?
Not agreeing with PB, but it is a thoughtful question.
I think these posts etc. were “trolls.” They were looking for responses from various factions so they could insinuate themselves into these factions via electronic contacts. So it was groundwork for who knows what kind of espionage.
