The military's positive mind-set on "offensive physical operations" (i.e., bombing and strafing) needs to transform its information/cyber operations from defensive to offensive. Kids, rogue nations and corporate entities have been conducting offensive cyber operations for decades. It's about time that the U.S. military stand up and participate.
