What is/isn't a "war"?  Was US/Vietnam a war?  It wasn't declared legally...  do you take issue with using the word war due to the nature of the event, or is it simply a question of scale?

From what I've read so far of this paper, the incident being called "a war" isn't central to the thesis.  Search / replace "war" with "incident" and the discussion works fine.  Your issue with the choice of words might be significant on some level, but you haven't refuted any of the conclusions.

There has been no cyber war yet.

Estonia was not a cyber war.

You've got it fundamentally wrong on the world stage infront of everyone.
