Nothing's Fair In Love or War

Seems fairly obvious to me that the next big war won't be fought with battleships and tanks and bombers half as long as football fields. Oh, we still build those relics. Good for the economy. If you own stock in Boeing, Halliburton, Northrop and GE. Always good to have them ready for a last minute parade, too.

Nerds and geeks replace flyboys with silk scarves billowing as subjects for future propaganda posters. Some home-schooled hacker in Nanjing will shut down the entire U.S. banking system while a work- from-home mom in Menlo Park disrupts all scheduled air traffic in Russia.

Theft of intellectual property? Like Wernher von Braun? Einstein?

Our lunch is eaten.
