The profit making sector of the security community are determined to use 'cyber war', and i'm determined to downplay it as a 'cyber protest' since I have no profiteering motivation. Although using 'cyber war' could actually cause damage and confusion to society if not used correctly. And when the real cyber war comes, what are they gonna call cyber war? Because society will already have been normalized into thinking its something non-important that isn't going to impact the public-at-large.

Why do you think news outlet's like BBC News aren't quick to use the 'cyber war' label when its just a bunch of kids doing a 'cyber protest'? It's because the BBC is one of the most respected public news services in the world and they don't want to mislead and cause panic, in the same way they don't want to mislead the population into think 'cyber war' is just something that happens, and not something they should ever be alarmed about.
