Time's Battleland: "According to new Pentagon cyber strategy, state-of-war conditions now exist between the US and China"
China has been pre-approved for kinetic war strikes from the United States at any time. Let me explain how.

In other words, if you, Country C, take down or just plain attack what we consider a crucial cyber network, we reserve the right to interpret that as an act of war justifying an immediately "equivalent" kinetic response (along with any cyber response, naturally). If this new strategy frightens you, then you just might be a rational actor.
