    Remember Stuxnet? Turns out it was created by US and Israel.

    If this goes as big as I hope it goes, I'll just need to get some popcorn and enjoy the show.

    If you think this is going to cause something spectacular regarding international conflicts, you might get disappointed.

    There won't be a show. It's only cyberwarfare if they do it.

    Unless they're China. Then it's just business as usual. But if you're small, have a Cold War-legacy army, and don't have a nuclear program, watch out motherfuckers!

    International conflicts need much more than just popcorn.

    The real news is Obama admitting this so casually.

    I think Obama did this as a show of force to China who orchestrated the Aurora attacks last year on major US companies. Symantec is sure toting the government line, praising the complexity of Stuxnet.

    But what about the Andromeda Strain effect? This powerful malware was either modified or botched and it escaped into the wild. This demonstrates one of two things - the USA\Israel engineers are sloppy, or there was some treasonous or rogue element that modified it unbeknownst to the authors. Either shows weakness.
