QOTD - Hayden on The Cyber World

You guys made the cyber world look like the north German plain, and then you bitch and moan because you get invaded. We all get treated like Poland on the web, invaded from the west on even-numbered centuries, invaded from the east on odd-numbered centuries.

The inherent geography of this domain – everything plays to the offense. There's almost nothing inherent in the domain that plays to the defense. That really affects how you think about it when you're a GI.
-- Michael Hayden, retired General, former head of the CIA & NSA
