A newly declassified document gives a fascinating glimpse into the US
military's plans for "information operations" - from psychological
operations, to attacks on hostile computer networks.

....the document recommends that the United States
should seek the ability to "provide maximum control of the entire
electromagnetic spectrum".

US forces should be able to "disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of
globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems
dependent on the electromagnetic spectrum".

Consider that for a moment.

The US military seeks the capability to knock out every telephone,
every networked computer, every radar system on the planet.

The full article may be read at the BBC News, you can also get a free copy of the "Information Operations Roadmap" document there too.
