Well I agree you are right about the different tactics of WW3. I'm not convinced it has actually started yet, though. We're still in the initial skirmishes stage. Waiting until an election has been reversed or a power grid has been disabled.

I was thinking along the lines of how the Internet enables attacks on the financial industry, for example, by remote actors.

"remote actors" such as US Treasury? I understand. Without telecommunication a blockade of a land-locked "adversary" would be otherwise difficult to execute.

Pentagon chief plans to shift US focus to China and Russia

Even as security threats pile up in the Middle East
[...]
He focused instead on shifting the U.S. military's focus toward China and Russia -- "today's revisionist powers." He accused Moscow and Beijing of seeking "veto power" over the economic and security decisions of ["]smaller["] nations. ... He said he has been studying the force and resource requirements for every area of the globe to determine how to rebalance those resources.

Right, and both China and Russia have their Internets tightly locked down, while the US is still operating under the old-time Unix viewpoint where everybody is cooperative and constructive and fair-minded.

After there is an Internet catastrophe in the US, it will also be locked down. Millions of middle school students will howl if they can't get to TikTok.

hmm, I was not aware of this condition
After there is an Internet catastrophe in the US, it will also be locked down.
How many "skirmishes" make an internet catastrophe? I must prepare for the next wave of Comcast "outages," electricity "outages," and ransom-ware ATTACKS on municipal hosted servers by stocking envelopes and rolls of Forever stamps.

It appears, you might not have recently inspected K-12 "network security" facilities or middle school students' phone plans. These are firmly locked up.
