It's about the acquisition of wealth，and the denial of wealth to competitors． Information Warfare is about power． He who controls the information controls the money． Information Warfare is about fear． He who controls the information can instill fear in those who want to keep their secrets a secret．It's the fear that the Bank of New York felt when it found itself ＄billion short of cash in only one day． Information Warfare is about politics． When the German government sponsors intelligence agency hacking against U.S. computers，the concept of ally needs to redefined． Or when Iran takes aim at the U.S． economy state sponsored counterfeiting，we should have a glimmer that conflict is not what it once was． Information Warfare is about survival．France and Israel developed their respective economies and based entire industries on stealing American secrets．Japan and Korea purloin American technology as it comes off the drawing boards with the help of their governments． Information Warfare is about defiance and disenfranchisement in both modern and Third World societies． From the inner cities of Cyberspace come fringe? element hackers with nothing to lose． They recognize the economic benefits of waging Information Warfare． Information Warfare is about the control of information．As a society we maintain less and less control as Cyberspace expands and electronic anarchy reigns．Given global conditions of the late 1980s and 1990s， Information Warfare is inevitable.
