We are entering the Renaissance of IT where we bridge the Middle Ages (the DotCom boom and rapid hardware improvement and software growth) and the modern history of Enterprise IT (proliferation of bring your own devices and cloud).

One hundred years later, the 'war to end all wars' is still shaping the geography and geopolitics of the modern world.

Russia is ready for war. Full spectrum regional dominance, maybe over the entire former USSR. NATO will its hands full if they intervene.

The State Department says the photos show burn marks from the firing of multiple rocket launchers inside Russia and resulting craters on the other side of the border.

Fire and forget. In future wars, no direct strike will be survivable. Every strike will be lethal and will destroy the target. The speed of destruction will be overwhelming; the time to react will compress to seconds, in which humans are not capable of making thoughtful decisions. Targeted ships will be sunk instantly. Unfortunately, the advantage will overwhelmingly be to the first striker, even more than before. A whole country's navy could be destroyed in days, not weeks, forcing it to face the impossible "Use it or lose it" decision. Escalation will happen so fast we won't be able to keep up with it. And if any of these missile systems are automated to respond to strikes, the majority of decisions will fall outside human agency. The implications are incalculable. If deterrence fails just once, the consequences will be devastating. The nuclear threshold will be even easier to cross than it ever has been. The next Cuban-style missile crisis will happen in hours, not days. How likely is it that general war can be avoided in such a scenario? We have dug our own graves, and deterrence is the only thing holding us back. Every constraint fails at least once. These missiles cannot be recalled or aborted. Most of the time will be spent trying to figure out what has happened after it's too late. Computers have no ethics, no sense of regret. Only algorithms. I am afraid the same is becoming true of humanity itself. I think conventional war is now obsolete; now it's just a jobs program. The missiles are the only thing that matters, and they destroy everything in their path, with a minuscule failure ratio. Deterrence has a larger fail ratio. Business now runs faster than the speed of thought. War will as well...

Sen. Lindsey Graham told a "cheering" audience Tuesday that if the relationship between the U.S. and Iran doesn't improve by the end of summer, he will ask Congress to authorize going to war. The idea is silly because obviously it'll never happen, and it's probably a ploy for re-election.
