re: Stuxnet Launched By United States And Israel
Yes, there's substantial collateral damage with all of this. But if the alternative is bombing a nuclear weapons facility with the likely radioactive fallout that was deliberately placed in Homs, a large city that is also a major Islamic religious center, to delay Iran from having nuclear weapons, then it is the far lesser of two evils.
The reality is that there has been an undeclared cyberwar that has been going on for many years if not decades. Look at all the damage the Chinese are doing in their infiltration of American defense sites, public companies, etc., etc. Cyberwar is the continuation of politics by other means.
It would a nice world if human beings and the nations, religions, ethnic groups, etc. that they aggregate in didn't fight each other, that everyone was reasonable and sang the same songs in perfect harmony.
But these aggregations result in different shared realities, different morals, different grievances, and different justifications for hurting people outside of their group. This is the nature of human beings and to think that we are otherwise is to be idiotically naive.
Despite occasional lapses, human beings are not nice animals. We are, for the time being at least, the most successful predators on the planet. The Iranians are predators, the Chinese are predators, the Russians are predators, the Syrians are predators, and of course, Americans are predators. The world today is the result of predators doing what predators do.
