Cyberwar observers out there?
Hopefully there are some sleepless nights going on at the DoD and MoD watching this "battle". This could be one of the first wide-spread examples of cyberwarfare - and, as "meat" armies always do, observers should be out there watching the strategy and tactics for incorporation into their own offence/defence plans.
Just as the retail folks learned a lot about secure transactions from the porn sites in their infancy, our military folks should be taking lessons from the cyber Mafia on this. After all, the "meat" Mafia kept the Germans out of American ports during The War - WWII - and the cybercrooks are certainly the leading lights in this battle front.
Besides, who knows: there might be a chance to "interview" some Al Quida "generals" visiting the same war sites...
