Internet como enemigo, según el Pentágono

Sí, el enemigo está en todas partes, e internet es su principal baluarte. Así pues, combatamos la red. ¿Cuánto tardará el Estado Federal en acabar con el legado de libertad que los Padres Fundadores dejaron?. A este paso, poquito.

A newly declassified Pentagon report personally approved by Donald Rumsfeld, a 74-page “Information Operations Roadmap” declares that it is developing a strategy to combat the vastness of Internet itself as though it were an enemy unto itself:
“Strategy should be based on the premise that the Department [of Defense] will ‘fight the net’ as it would an enemy weapons system,” it reads.

Es probable que quisiera decir "combatamos en la red" más que "combatamos la red". Porque desde luego esto último no hay por donde cogerlo.

Te refiero a este comentario en el post que enlazas:

Sorry, but I have to disagree. I read the Roadmap, and nowhere did I see anything about the Internet being an enemy. They clearly were talking about knocking out enemy networks in combat zones — I’m almost as paranoid as the next guy, but that doc didn’t conclude that the public Internet is considered a combat zone.

It did talk about PSYOPS being redirected through the Internet back to Americans, but nowhere was there the implication that this would require destruction of public networks.

After reading the document, I don’t think the BBC read beyond the Exec Summary. And then you quoted their interpretations (”it seems to see the internet…”) and adopted it as your headline, the inference that it was attributable to the actual DoD document.

I like you guys at HoT, but this just seems sloppy. My rant on it at chriswolske.com/blog/2006/01/fight-net-or-fight-their-nets
