If all it took were some high profile DDoS attacks to get the military to do this, maybe we got off lucky.

That's RICH! "Military" actually flirting with "intelligence"! Can't wait to see their baby!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this should have been done AGES ago

I actually thought about this some years ago when Russian hackers shut down Estonia. China's government has been actively hiring hackers and quietly encouraging attacks on the west. We are way behind the curve here.

I know of at least 5 Romanian hackers, sorry especially bright kids, some part of the US administration hired during the past 3 years "for the greater good",  after the naughty boys hacked open networks of the FBI, NASA, etc. Let alone the grey matter the US hire from the other countries in the region, Russia, India, Israel. You are only good at looking in the neighbor's yard, yet what happens in your own you don't perceive as equally condemnable. You live in a constant state of fear that everyone wants to attack "THE WEST" for some reason, or that someone else drew the gun on you first (Pearl Harbor, Vietnam and other "good" examples). You do that. It's the most basic level the human brain can be in. And the most susceptible to yield knee-jerk primitive responses among the masses ("war" - even easier to pronounce than "mom"). Forget critical thought. Sorry for not being rough enough, it's early morning.

Whether you like it or not, we have enemies that would like to see us fail. Condemn war and war planning as primate gesticulation and vestigial cold war paranoia. You do that. Its the blindest the brain can be, and the "most susceptible" to yield knee-jerk defensive recusal amongst the masses ("peace" - even more appealing than "Reese's Pieces"). Forget the reality of international competition in an emergent technology. Sorry for not being rough enough, it's 3 AM.

We are slowly making it possible for Ender's Game to become reality.

not exactly ansible communications were philotic..philotic connections were biological....not technological, and were far smaller than any subatomic particles currently known to man...so unless this unleashses a violent fervor into quantum mechanics and ultimately what could be considered quantum biology then i dont see it happening

I was refering to the idea of making simulations so realistic that it is impossible to tell the difference between a real war and a simulated one.
