Do I have a second? Hcobb (talk) 14:36, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
I second this view, but the article is inherently NPOV. The article needs extensive revision or deletion. --Zeamays (talk) 14:56, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

If anyone considers a future renaming, I suggest "Cyberwarfare and the United States" to neatly encompass the entirety of the subject matter. Articles specific to other nations could follow the same naming convention. Pdxuser (talk) 08:37, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

The article's first paragraph defines it as being about offensive warfare by the US Government, which is completely different from the meaning of the title of the article. I recommend either extensive revision or deletion. Renaming it would not solve the problem because the included material is so one-sided. --Zeamays (talk) 14:56, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

The definition statement (paragraph 1) is not supported by the cited reference, which is maliciously misinterpreted.|American Forces Press Service: Lynn Explains the U.S Cybersecurity Strategy --Zeamays (talk) 15:05, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
I would agree that the opening paragraph and title have serious problems. The first paragraph is very one sided and lacks references. It also does not contribute to the overall article. Digiduck (talk) 05:43, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
The article and intro currently discuss cyberwarfare both by and against the United States. Is the NPOV dispute therefore resolved? Pdxuser (talk) 08:40, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. Removed. Snori (talk) 08:02, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Good article, some critiques[edit]

Overall I feel like this is a good, mostly non-bias article. It presented mostly events/facts with very little opinionated content, but there are some issues with it.

- All facts presented in the first half of the article are properly cited, but in the "Timeline" section there are some non-cited facts.This section goes through notable events in recent history involving the US's role in cyberwarefare. There are a couple of events without a citation, and there are many with a possibly bias/non reliable source. For example the fourth event is cited with a Washington Post article and is about an attack on a US military base in the Middle East.Having only the American point of view on such a foreign attack will likely not show the full picture. - This article is mostly neutral, there isn't anything that seems heavily biased but there are parts that don't seem to have both sides equally represented. There are many reference to cyber attacks between two nations that do not have sources from both sides. There is naturally going to be a struggle finding good sources from a foreign country that may not have the same freedom of press that we do, especially when it comes to military action, but I would have liked to see more non-US based citations.

This article does a good job of presenting US cyberwarefare policy and many important events in a mostly non-bias way.
