Abstract : Achieving the full revolutionary impact of information warfare requires distinguishing the methods of information attack from other forms of warfare on policy and legal grounds. Information attack represents a revolutionary new form of warfare from a legal perspective because it allows a severe effect, and therefore intense coercion, to occur with little or no violence and little traditional destruction.
