Cyberattacks As Acts Of War?

This Wall Street Journal article asks some interesting questions.  If someone used explosives to knock some of your power stations off of the grid, to blow up pipelines for heating oil and natural gas to the northeast during winter, to shut down the phone systems in New York, Washington D.C., and Atlanta, these would likely be considered acts of war.  But if these things were done with a computer and without explosives it would not make them any less an act of war.
