Are you talking about the US?

I have been waiting for awhile for some rogue Internet nations.
Nations that become safe heavens for everything we want to prevent.
I thought some side line dictators out there would see Internet as a 
revenue stream as they funnel narcotics, money laundering, arms sales, 
terrorist propaganda, etc. 

BUT not yet....

Maybe we have too few Noriegas around...

And if they should up, can the Western World just hook off a nation
from the Internet like cutting oil supply?

considering that intelligence can't even tell a Chinese embassy from a
warehouse or where senior leadership is having a meeting, how do they expect
to hit a bunch of teenage script kiddies (or heavens forbid, REAL crackers)
coordinating an attack via IRC?

Going from the premptive strike philosophy demonstrated in Mideastern
countries, what are your thoughts on a military strike against (as yet
unseen) "cyberterrorists" a'la
http://www.msnbc.com/news/985295.asp?0si=- if there were extranational
agents tampering with identified components of the infrastructure to
the extent that they were risking human life?
