Another part of the historical lesson is that America has *only* ever had 2 major political parties. Those two parties and their platforms change, rarely, but the fact remains that despite third parties having a smattering of support here and there, our government has *always* been dualistic. That's just the way we are in this country, Americans only think of issues in an either-or manner.

"In the event of a massive cyberattack against the country that was perceived as originating from a foreign source, the United States would consider launching a counterattack or bombing the source of the cyberattack.... But he noted the preferred route would be warning the source to shut down the attack before a military response."

I would hope that they are really, really, REALLY certain that they have identified the correct geographical source of the cyber-attack. Also, even if the source of the attack can be absolutely verified without any chance for error (which I doubt), if the cyber-terrorists are located in a populated area — does the order to bomb still go through, regardless of probable loss of innocent life?"

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
