Is it just me or does it seem to be very odd that the President is provoking a war with Russia just 3 weeks before the election? In the past two years we have heard minor threats about the US beefing with Russia but nothing this serious. As I write this, we stand very close to the most important elections in the United States history, and Obama has done a great job at choosing this moment to strongly threaten the Russians.
Reuters is reporting that the President is contemplating if we wants to deploy “direct military action” against the Syrian military targets. The Russians have already made it very clear that they consider an attack on Syria an attack on themselves. The rapid increase of serious crisis in Syria have already caused major tensions with Russia to literally rise to the highest level since the end of the Cold War.
Not only is our government seriously provoking the Russians, Obama is doing all he can to add fuel to fire by publicly announcing there will be a “unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia.” Apparently, our government thinks that the Russians are providing the public with the hacked emails from Wikileaks, and interfering with this election. The following statement was found from an NBC news article,
“The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.
The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation.”
It is almost like Obama thinks this is just a video game. He thinks just because he has gotten away with so much for the past 8 years he is able to do anything he finds fitting for his agenda. Doing anything he can to help get Hilary Clinton elected is one of them.
