The Russians Are Better Chess Players Than I Am!

On July 24th, I predicted that the Russians would retaliate for sanctions against them for their Ukrainian adventures by hitting the vulnerable U.S. power grid (see my article here). Silly me. If we muck with their economy, they want to less-than-subtly muck with ours (see Friday's New York Times story here). Like the apocryphal Willie Sutton quote, "You go where the money is." Silly me. The U.S. power grid is several steps down on Russia's hit list.

To quote one of the smartest people I know:
"It could be we're developing a kind of warfare like 17th & 18th Century privateering."
Yet another nod that it might be time for licensed and bonded cyber privateers?

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?
