The policies have been changed, yet again, now NATO’s war declaration requirements have been lowered for NATO officials to escalate World War 3.
See: NATO’s new cyber defence policy: “Cyberspace is considered by military strategists as the fifth domain of war – land, sea, air and space are the first four. Extending the rule to cyberspace would send a message to Russia, which is blamed for attacks against Estonia in 2007 which floored the Baltic state’s banking and telecom systems during a time of civil unrest, as well as cyber-attacks that accompanied a ground war in Georgia a year later.”
And also see: UK Reuters: “NATO leaders agreed on Friday that a large-scale cyber attack on a member country could be considered an attack on the entire U.S.-led alliance, potentially triggering a military response.”

“Today we declare that cyber defense is part of NATO’s core task of collective defense,” NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told a news conference.”
The argument has been the threat of a massive cyber-attack upon the international financial markets that would cripple the international capital flows placing the economy at risk. Such a danger is actually the modern version of counterfeiting an adversary’s currency to disrupt its economy by undermining the currency thereby creating inflation and economic war.
Attacking an opponent’s economy has been a strategic part of warfare as this German counterfeit of a British 5 pound note illustrates. The British attempted to weaken the public trust during the American Revolution attacking the Continental Currency with propaganda and penalties of their own. In order to devalue and destabilize the currency of the Colonies, they also engaged in economic warfare by means of extensive counterfeiting.
Benjamin Franklin developed using nature to secure the currency by using leaves that were unique. Regarding the British-sponsored counterfeits, Franklin said:
“Paper money was in those times our universal currency. But, it being the instrument with which we combated our enemies, they resolved to deprive us of its use by depreciating it; and the most effectual means they could contrive was to counterfeit it. The artists they employed performed so well, that immense quantities of these counterfeits, which issued from the British government in New York, were circulated among the inhabitants of all the States, before the fraud was detected. This operated considerably in depreciating the whole mass, first, by the vast additional quantity, and next by the uncertainty in distinguishing the true from the false; and the depreciation was a loss to all and the ruin of many.”
Circulating contemporary counterfeits today are typically collected alongside the genuine examples and, in some cases, are rarer than the genuine bills. Economic warfare has been around for a very long time.
