Non-State Versus Non-State

The hacker group Anonymous has declared war in ISIL:

The hacker group Anonymous has apparently responded to the attacks on Paris by posting a video declaration of war against ISIS.

In the as-yet-unverified video, posted on YouTube, a spokesperson wearing the group's signature Guy Fawkes mask said the group of hackers would use its expertise to wage "war" on the militant group.

Which is a form of privatized warfare, as much as jihadi groups represent that, too.

How long before Western groups begin waging private warfare in the physical world as well?
