We are in a wiki war

There are also rules for Wiki War.

Rule #1. The Internet is neutral. No party can count on a decisive and unassailable advantage in cyberspace.

Rule #2. Geography matters. The expanses of cyberspace are not the Wild West. Governments have a great deal of power to manage the electrons that traverse their borders. They should use that power wisely.

Rule #3. Cyber-strategic leaders are needed. The best way to win online is not to mess with the rules but to beat the competition. Washington has to be more adept at operating in the online world. That includes preventing digital leaks and responding to security compromises when they occur.
