The Pentagon’s first official cyber strategy is highly dangerous, with likely consequences of weapons races and even armed conflicts between nations, a Chinese military analyst has warned. Li Shuiseng, a researcher at the leading military science academy of the People’s Liberation Army, said in an interview on Thursday that the new strategy was “fundamentally an attempt of the US to maintain its unparalleled global military superiority.” It provides the US with a new pretext to flex its conventional military muscles, Li added. A strategy statement issued by the White House last month on cyber security said that the US “would respond to hostile acts in cyberspace as we would to any other threat to our country.”
