Pentagon: To Treat The Internet Like An Enemy "Weapons System" [Ref.]

[From 'Pentagon: The internet needs to be dealt with as if it were an enemy "weapons system"', an article by Brent Jessop, Global Research.]
Quotes below from Rebuilding America's Defences, a document produced by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) in 2000.
"It is now commonly understood that information and other new technologies...are creating a dynamic that may threaten America's ability to exercise its dominant military power."
"Control of space and cyberspace. Much as control of the high seas - and the protection of international commerce - defined global powers in the past, so will control of the new "international commons" be a key to world power in the future. An America incapable of protecting its interests or that of its allies in space or the "infosphere" will find it difficult to exert global political leadership."
"Although it may take several decades for the process of transformation to unfold, in time, the art of warfare on air, land, and sea will be vastly different than it is today, and "combat" likely will take place in new dimensions: in space, "cyber-space," and perhaps the world of microbes."
