… against hybrid warfare, a favorite of Russia and China

Duh, that's how we and the world lost control of the South China Sea to the Chinese.

The Japanese need to be worried, since they may lose the Senkakus as well to them, if they are not very careful.

I doubt anyone on the globe would call that bluff.

I can only choose one?

If they have already made a cyber attack on us, then would it be considered a counterattack?

I would not be surprised to find out it has already happened. My only hope is that we are holding back on the big guns.

You can never truly defend against a determined enemy. Just let them know they be in as much pain if they attack. M.A.D.
