The US Military came to a conclusion that the best way to tackle copyright infringers is fight them with traditional weapons.
As a result, the Pentagon has already sent a report to Congress, saying that it can retaliate with military force to address cyber attacks. In other words, if someone carries out an attack on the Pentagon site, the US Military will run through their house shooting anyone. Of course, it seems to be a fairly tough approach, though the Pentagon claimed in a recently published report that it would act as a deterrence on people believing that they are able to carry out considerable cyber attacks against the American economy, government or military.
According to media reports, the main problem the country’s military has with cyber war is to identify where the cyber attacks originate from. That’s why the suggestions are that before calling for a strike against a cyber enemy, the army should improve its ability to identify the intruder. Indeed, it would be hard to call back a cruise missile if the intruder masked their attack behind someone else’s IP address.
The statistics revealed that most attacks that the United States has complained about appeared to come from China. However, the United States has to think carefully about attacking this country, because its economy is actually propped up by China and most of its goods are manufactured there. Of course, it would be better if some tracing reveal that, instead of attack originating from a hairdressing school, like they’ve done in the past, they were actually coming from a secret volcano base located in the South Pacific.
In its turn, the Pentagon is paying boffins to introduce some behaviouristic algorithms helping to assess the potential identity of attackers, which would limit the number of physical targets. American security agencies have also been training a crack team of very skilled cyber forensics experts. They also cooperate with international partners to share data about cyber threats, which includes malicious code and people behind it.
As an example, in the case of Gary McKinnon, the United States would have invaded the United Kingdom, shot McKinnon and cleared off, perhaps to an American base in Britain. Well, at least there would have been no time for a public outcry over the extradition.

|It certainly seems harsh, but I guess the U.S finally realise that a single person is capable of shutting down and crashing an entire economy, simply by tapping a few keys on their computer.|

|Unreliable sources to this story is all I can find, so I call bullshit to sites running this. And China has more man power but that's it. their weapons suck and they are undertrained. The to go in on China would create a world war (some countries would join China, others the US).|
|hackers cover their tracks well. VPN with no logs, goodluck. Go shoot an innocent person. anon still to be found, lulzsec to i believe|
|Am I the only one that found this story amusing?|
Oh, and hrg is right. China scares me. lol. And it is true that 90% of what's in America came from another country. The 10% that came from this land being some food and a little bit of fabric. Everything else comes from Canada, Taiwan, China, Japan, Mexico, Australia, etc... America needs to take a chill pill and humble our smug asses. We need to stop poking our noses in other countries' business, too. We got our own problems here on our homeland.

|This is amusing!!!!China does scare me and most of our things come from overseas. But we have only money,weapons and technology. Thats WTF they built this country on nothing has change since George Washington. They said we broke but i dont believe that for one moment.|
|boycott all chinese goods.|
if you stop buying chinese garbage, they have no funding for their military, and the US is the major source of funding for the chinese military (walmart).
force corporations to bring the jobs back to the people that should rightfully be holding those jobs, and then the economic problems in the US and europe will be solved.
a consumer based economy does not and can not work.
china has enough people and their own economy, let them manufacture for their own economy.
plus, the US should stop giving the millions of dollars in aid to developing countries to china, they do not need it nor do they deserve it.
