Everyone may be underestimating the Mossad

In all my speculation about power players in the cyber defense arena, I've ignored the relative ranking of the Israeli Mossad as a world player. Richard Clarke in his Cyber War book seems to think that the USA is first in cyber war capability, followed by Russia and then China (in that order). In my humble opinion, and based upon the targeted readership of this blog, I have a hunch that Israel is a power player on a level with both China and Russia. Maybe even tied with the USA. Here's the top-ten frequency of readers from around the world in the last few days:

  1. The USA
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Israel
  4. Canada
  5. Sweden
  6. Brazil
  7. France
  8. Russia 
  9. United Arab Emirates
  10. Bulgaria
Israel is the number three reader in terms of frequency of page views. My "gut" tells me that Israel will be a major player in any cyber war, and that the Mossad may be the best partner a cyber privateering organization may ever have. I have no direct knowledge to back this up, but my built-in "inference engine" (a concept based on out-of-mainstream A.I. concepts) uses some really "fuzzy logic" to suggest this reality. Time will tell.

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
