"The next world war could happen in cyberspace and that would be a catastrophe. We have to make sure that all countries understand that in that war, there is no such thing as a superpower," Hamadoun Toure said.
"Loss of vital networks would quickly cripple any nation, and none is immune to cyberattack," added the secretary-general of the International Telecommunications Union during the ITU's Telecom World 2009 fair in Geneva.
Of course if this indeed becomes the next World War, this will probably be nothing more than a cyber false flag operation just like the first two World Wars, Vietnam, Spanish American War, Operation Northwoods, 9/11 and other false flag operations.
A cyber false flag will be likely be used as the pretext for the government to take control of the Internet.
