Today's Network Solutions DDOS attack proves my point

No wonder my email today has been virtually nonexistent. I just got a text from my former Israeli commando friend telling me that his email to me is getting bounced. So I called the Network Solutions tech support hot line and got a recorded message that they are currently under a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. Given that these guys are as good as it gets, and if they cannot defend against these attacks, then doesn't it stand to reason that our DEFENSE-ONLY cyber security legal framework is positively and absolutely idiotic?

Come on, Congress! Don't you remember the days when we only sent amateur athletes to play basketball in the Olympics? We got creamed. But when the USA is NOT forced to play with our hands tied behind our backs, we prevail. Ditto for cyber security.

You force us to play defense only, we are guaranteed to lose big time. How about leveling the playing field and NOT forcing us to play with BOTH hands tied behind our backs? The answer is licensed and bonded cyber privateers who live by…THE CODE (see here).

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?
