General William Shelton, who heads Air Force Space Command and oversees the Air Force’s cyber operations, comments that Iran will be a “force to be reckoned with” in the future after it has perceivably strengthened its cyber defence and offense capabilities after the Stuxnet attacks.
“The Iranian situation is difficult to talk about,” Shelton told reporters. “It’s clear that the Natanz situation generated reaction by them. They are going to be a force to be reckoned with, with the potential capabilities that they will develop over the years and the potential threat that will represent to the United States.”
Has the chickens come home to roost or is this just more war mongering to get yet more defense buget share?
