Ah, the cyber wars are here in earnest.

The latest has research universities in the U.S. reporting millions of hacking attempts on their computer networks weekly, most supposedly from China, this according to an article in yesterday's New York Times by Richard Perez-Pena titled, "Universities Face a Rising Barrage of Cyberattacks".

Then of course there's the cyberattacks on the computer networks of large U.S. corporations, also attributed to China. When the Obama administration complained to China "of organized cybertheft of trade secrets", Chinese officials pointed "to revelations of American spying".

And what those Chinese officials are saying is the real kicker in all this cyber hacking, cyber snooping warfare.

Remember, it was the U.S. along with Israel that initiated cyber warfare when it sent a computer worm called "Stuxnet" to disrupt and disable Iranian computers that controlled the enriching of uranium in 2010.

Now with Edward Snowden's revelations of the NSA's illegal snooping and data mining programs capturing all electronic communications in the world, is there any wonder there's cyber hacking against U.S. interests, whether it be U.S. corporations and universities which seems to be growing exponentially.

What's always fascinating, remarkable, galling in reading these corporate media articles, there's never any mention of U.S. complicity in initiating the modern day cyber warfare.

It's not as if it's a state secret, not anymore with WikiLeaks, Bradley Manning and now Snowden shining the light on U.S. initiated malfeasance.
