To destroy the internets...

According to this BBC article , the US military is working on plans to distrupt global communications.

"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.
US forces should be able to "disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems dependent on the electromagnetic spectrum".

Consider that for a moment.

The US military seeks the capability to knock out every telephone, every networked computer, every radar system on the planet.

any reaction from the rest of the Western world on hearing that US forces have this "right"? i'm sure they meant the US and only the US.
