Flame – Cyberwar in action?

The Flame virus has gone public during the last few days of May 2012. This discovery has been made two years after Stuxnet (June 2010) and less than a year after Duqu (Sept. 2011). Despite the fact that those three virus have different objectives, they have in common their complexity and the fact that they have been probably developed by people with “unlimited” resources. So where are we now? Is this cyberwar? or this is the natural evolution of cyber criminal?
