Since the day the Internet was invented, the United States has been preparing for cyber war and has set many records in this area.

On May 6, the United States again groundlessly accused China of making cyber-attacks. That day the Pentagon issued its annual report to Congress on Chinese military developments, claiming some of the cyber attacks on U.S. government and defense industry originated from Chinese government and military.

This year the Pentagon annual report made harsh accusations against China instead of cautious comments in the past. The report also shifted its focus from economic areas to political and economic areas, which clearly showed the U.S.’ intention of reversing its negative image as an international cyber peace buster.

By the report the U.S. also set up an imaginary enemy so as to get more financial support and legal basis for its cyber army expansion.

It is well known that actually the U.S. is the “hackers’ empire”, which has had a lot of cyber espionage targeting not only hostile countries but also allies in political, military, scientific, commercial and other fields.

In recent years, it has strengthened its cyber attack as an instrument to overthrow the regimes of other countries. Since the day the Internet was invented the United States has been preparing for cyber war and has set many records in this area.

The U.S. is the first country to establish cyber army. In 1998, the U.S. army issued the Joint Doctrine for Information Operations. According to reports the U.S. cyber army has more than 50,000 troops. It has a considerable network arsenal in which more than 2,000 cyber weapons are stored.

The U.S. is the first country to convert the cyber space into warfare. In the Quadrennial Defense Review Report issued in 2010, it put the cyberspace on par with land, sea, air and space for the first time. Then cyberspace became the fifth domain of warfare, according to the Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace issued by the U.S. in July 2011.

The U.S. is the first country to trigger a cyber war. According to reports, the history of U.S. cyber war can date back to First Gulf War. In 2011, U.S. media exposed a cyber war project called “the Olympic Games”. Who was the backstage manipulator of the virus attack on Iranian uranium enrichment centrifuges was already an open secret.
