Whether Iran is secretly trying to build nuclear arms or not, the longer US/Israeli economic war, terrorist attacks on nuclear scientists, cyber-war, and diplomatic marginalization continue, the more Iranian national security officials are likely to view nuclear arms as essential defensive weapons.
In this dangerous context, the US obviously needs the clearest possible understanding of what is in the interests of US national security (NOT the same as being in the interests of some particular elite faction with its own agenda).
How might the blitzkrieg of the future arrive? By air strike? An invading army? In a terrorist's suitcase? In fact it could be coming down the line to a computer near you.
Operation Locked Shields, an international military exercise held last month, was not exactly your usual game of soldiers. It involves no loud bangs or bullets, no tanks, aircraft or camouflage face-paint. Its troops rarely even left their control room, deep within a high security military base in Estonia.
These people represent a new kind of combatant - the cyber warrior.
The ‘Post’ gets an exclusive inside look at the soldiers who are trained to prevent infiltrations of the country’s(Israel) most classified networks.
August 2013. IDF tanks and armored personnel carriers are taking up positions throughout southern Lebanon following a series of Scud missile attacks on Tel Aviv.
The forces are gearing up to conquer over 100 villages where Military Intelligence says Hezbollah has deployed its guerrillas and rocket launchers.

Viruses like Stuxnet and Duqu are the atom bombs of cyberwarfare, experts say, a key tool in U.S. and foreign military arsenals. But some worry that this new generation of digital weapons could be co-opted by enemy forces and used against their creators.
Iran to launch National Supercomputer Network to be used for weather forecast, defense industry and research design.
Vice President for Scientific and Technological Affairs, Nasrin Soltankhah, has announced that the national supercomputer network will be inaugurated with the installation of 12 supercomputers across Iran by the year’s end (the Iranian calendar ends 20 March).
She added that these supercomputers will be used for weather forecasts, defense industry and research design.
The threat that we call 'Duqu' is based on Stuxnet and it is very similar. Only a few sites so far are known to be attacked by the code, and it does not have PLC functionality like Stuxnet.
Instead, the code which is delivered via exploitation, installs drivers, and encrypted DLLs that function very similar to the original Stuxnet code.In fact, the driver’s code used for the injection attack, is very similar to Stuxnet, as well as several encryption keys, and techniques that were used in Stuxnet.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — DuQu, the malicious code that followed in the wake of the infamous Stuxnet code, has been analyzed nearly as much as its predecessor. But one part of the code remains a mystery, and researchers are asking programmers for help in solving it.
The mystery concerns an essential component of the malware that communicates with command-and-control servers and has the ability to download additional payload modules and execute them on infected machines.
The former top-ranking military intelligence officer in the U.S. armed forces discusses Stuxnet on this week's episode of "60 Minutes," and he may give some ammunition to cybersecurity watchers who believe the United States had something to do with the sophisticated computer worm that wreaked havoc on Iran's nuclear program in 2010.
Iran said its word and was decisive. No one can surpass its capabilities and face its might.
This was evident when one watches news or surf websites where Iranian news of defense and power prevailed over any others from its wide scale maneuvers to establishing a domestic cyber army.
Director of Iran's Passive Defense Organization announced on the last day of the first national conference on cyber defense that the Islamic Republic plans to build the first Iranian cyber army following the successful launch of the cyber defense headquarters some four months ago.
