    This the third major huge attack? Whomever the culprit, seeking a status quo ante bellum while pondering these choke-points would be wise.

    All the retaliation talk may sound cool but the culprits I've heard mentioned for these DDOS attacks are not symmetrically vulnerable.

    Seek status quo ante bellum. Build security & resilience. Other path is waving a knife at mosquitoes while one's carotid artery is exposed.
