NonSmokingman, I think an earthquake weapon, if realized, would amount to a weapon of mass destruction. Just admitting you had it would totally destabilize our world: countries may assume any big earthquake to be a WMD attack!
I'm not entirely sure yet how cyberattacks would directly harm a target nation. It is stealing defense info, or disrupting programming for vital services, from coordinated communications between fire deps to military units, to even operations of a nuclear reactor. I sometime wonder if cybertech might be used to directly kill people or destroy hardware.
