    Military Plans to Control Internet Revealed


    "From influencing public opinion through new media to designing 'computer network attack' weapons, the US military is learning to fight an electronic war. 'Strategy should be based on the premise that the Department [of Defense] will 'fight the net' as it would an enemy weapons system.' The document recommends that the United States should seek the ability to 'provide maximum control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum'. US forces should be able to 'disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems'."
    -- BBC article describing U.S. military plans to fight the Internet, 1/27/06

    Why would it be of any concern that the US Military is learning and practicing to interrupt all forms of our enemies Communications?

    If the US Military was not prepared to interrupt or even take over enemy communications to include internet, then I would be concerned.

    Warfare is constantly changing, communications changes as fast if not faster. In the signal corps we had a saying, They can talk about us but they can't talk without us. You cannot win a war if you cannot effectively communicate.

    It's not the military who'd be monitoring anything.

    It'd be the NSA.

    There are all kinds of stories about ECHELON. I doubt most of them are true, but some might be. The technology exists.
