Cyberwar as Anti-War: The Keystroke is Mightier than the Sword   [open pdf - 375KB]

Carl von Clausewitz discounts the pursuit of a bloodless war as misguided and doomed to defeat. After all, war's aim is to destroy the enemy's forces. How can this goal be accomplished without physical force or combat? Through the ages, war theorists and practitioners have recognized that advances in technology permit new and innovative ways to wage war, even if changes in doctrine often lag changes in lethality. This phenomenon is especially true of cyberwar, which, like air warfare, introduces an entirely new medium to the battle- the realm of cyberspace. It is through this dimension, divorced from geography, that we may be able to stanch the bloody war of Clausewitz.
