Journal Jouster's Journal: The Cyberspace Rules of Engagement?

An article over at MSNBC talks about the steps the U.S. Government is requesting be taken by ISPs, particularly broadband ISPs, to protect their customers from malicious hackers, worms, and virii (and in turn prevent DDoS and other attacks against government targets). It gets most interesting, however, when it starts discussing rules being formulated on exactly how far the government can go in engaging in electronic warfare against military targets.
I'm very interested to hear how far-reaching the powers that /.ers would advocate would be. Is a SMURF attack against Iraq too much? How about making Cisco put a backdoor password in routers shipped to Iraq? And so on....
