The U.S. Cyber Command aims to coordinate cyber planning and operations. An entire new military service for cyberspace, however, would just create more bureaucracy, according to Jason Blessing, Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Research Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

  • While an independent cyber service has benefits and Cyber Command has limitations, Blessing argued, a cyber force comes with a host of complications.
  • Blessing said it risks cementing the idea that cyberspace has similar challenges to land, sea, air and space, which it does not, and he said cyber interacts with the other domains in a unique way.
  • Blessing said current fiscal conditions are not conducive to building a new bureaucracy, which would put financial stress on the military.
