    plane being grounded is, to my mind,  that the countries involved received a very courteous an diplomatic call from DOS making them aware that, by the way, you do understand that all your internets are belong to us? And that oh, btw, you do understand that we won your backbones and have already put in the gizmos that will allow us to cyberattack you and bring your country to its knees?  Oh, and btw, punk, are ya feelin' lucky?  Well are ya?

    I can certainly imagine General Alexander sending that message.

    And I can also see that scenario giving State the opportunity to play 'good cop' -- oh, we wouldn't want to do anything like that, but you have to understand that we can't be held responsible if your electrical grid goes offline.
