Will Cyberwarfare Lead to World Peace?

I ask can cyberwarfare lead to world peace because of the Cold War doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD).

In fact, during the Cold War neither side could risk direct combat because of nuclear weapons. To explain, the United States and the Soviet Union had the ability to destroy each other. Hence, the term Mutually Assured Destruction.

History teaches us that MAD works because there was no fighting between Americans and Russians during the 46 years of Cold War. Instead, the leaders on each side had a strong incentive to make peace.
