Pentagon - Cyber Attack an Act of War

 With the world going Digital, so has the methodologies of Attackers. And the Pentagon realizes it, by declaring Cyber Attacks as an Act of War. "If you shut down our power grid," an unnamed military official says, "maybe we will put a missile down one of your smokestacks." These drastic steps are taken by the Pentagon after a main military supplier, Lockheed Martin, was hacked earlier this month.
  The finding of a cyberattack as an act of war is one that "for the first time opens the door for the U.S. to respond using traditional military force." So how does Military supplement a Cyber attack? And will this guarantee the Real attacker has been punished? I don't think so, in this world, you can make up a Fake attack by an Innocent society. No big deal, and would the US fire up missiles against them? A point to think of, lets wait and see how the future crafts up.
