Cyberwar? What cyberwar?

The White House recently released its International Strategy for Cyberspace, which addresses actions the US can take in response to cyber threats. The Department of Defense then released a cyber strategy that the Joint Chiefs say does't go far enough in outlining an offensive response. Meanwhile, the U.S. Cyber-Security Coordinator, Howard Schmidt, said there is no cyberwar. Jim Tiller has some interesting things to say about this. There seems to be plenty of evidence for cyberwar--Georgia, Stuxnet, reputed Chinese attacks on 72 organziations--if it exists.
