"Stop worrying that crims could break the 'net, say cyber-diplomats – only nations have tried"
There's a difference?
The Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace (GCSC) is worried its guidance on preventing the internet and all it connects becoming a casualty of war is being misinterpreted, perhaps wilfully. The GCSC works to create global behavioural norms that hopefully find their way into the diplomatic documents that govern …
Quite so, Simon Sharwood, APAC Editor. That is excellently reported and accurately identifies government/nation state actors as targets for quasi-criminal activity and/or paramilitary attention should they veer and intrude and interfere to the detriment of the technical community, civil society, and individuals playing a major role in the protection of cyberspace.
These norms look fine on paper (screen). But how are they to be enforced? Telling a thief not to steal your car because you need it to get around may not actually prevent the theft.
The fundamental problem about rules of war is that wars are fought to win. There'll always be some belligerent to whom that's more important than codes of conduct.

Is it not an indisputable fact nowadays .... for the past has no active bearing at all on the present and future so let us not concern ourselves with those memories ....... that that which and those who start wars are always defeated and lose them, and the victors then are entitled to punitive damages and the full cost of reparations.
Or do nations nowadays try to escape that obligation and pay no exemplary price for their destructive follies and deadly deeds against prior uninvolved souls/innocent victims ?
Now that would be a universal scandal and monumental crazy assault on humanity which is bound to have almighty repercussions and dire consequences.
And that simple inescapable fact ..... that which and those who start wars are always defeated and lose them, and the victors then are entitled to punitive damages and the full cost of reparations. ....... clearly identifies before the facts for consideration and capitalisation are in evidence, the future loser and current psychotic enemy to contain with sanctions and refrain from material support and effective defensive capability.
Take great care though, and beware and be aware that the imposition of such penalties against unworthy innocent parties can easily identify one as the unruly foe and retarded enemy described here to be gravely regarded.
That is true, but it's also true that international treaties are not entirely ineffective. Many countries do try to avoid targeting hospitals and schools, using chemical weapons, torturing enemy soldiers for jollies, and the like. Many others do it, but seek to keep it hidden, which means they can't do it rampantly. In the long term, it's also generally good to get the public opinion to agree that such acts are unethical even within the context of war.
Treaties are really cheap, so even if they are only a little bit effective, they're still worth it.
Who the hell is paying for these idiots to sit in a office and issue pointless declarations to the effect that they hope everyone will be nice? ..... W.S.Gossett
One imagines, W.S.Gossett, the same sort of idiots who listen to them and give them credence and a remote defenceless power over the ignorant listener/innocent spectator to unfolding events.
However, not all will be so smitten and easily led to a novel position without their own clear thinking revealing a correct path ..... which may even be fortunate enough to correspond and be agreeable with that proposed and trialed/trailed and betatested.
To imagine that no one/nothing leads with rules and regulations to follow and abide by, is to realise madness and mayhem, conflict and CHAOS abound and hold primary sway over future situations and that is not an intelligent outcome to input for systems output ergo is it false and incorrect to believe possible and in any way likely and probable.
