We Should Have Known Putin Would React. He’s Playing For Real.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Yesterday we reported that Vice President Biden had been sent out to the Sunday shows to tell Everyone that the US was going to go after Russia with some ‘Cyber attacks’. It is supposedly a retaliation against them for hacking the DNC emails and the Clinton emails.

“Russia Slams “Unprecedented, Insolent” US Cyber Threats, Vows Retaliation”


To be sure, this “leak” of what effectively amount to a cyberwar warning was a calculated move meant to provoke further escalation in tensions between the two nations and a trial balloon to gauge Russia’s response. The response came this morning Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that “US aggressiveness is growing, and threats to carry out cyberattacks against Russia are unprecedented” adding that Russia will take “precautionary measures.”

The fact is, US unpredictability and aggression keep growing, and such threats against Moscow and our country’s leadership are unprecedented, because the threat is being announced at the level of the US Vice President,” Peskov told RIA Novosti cited by AFP. “Of course, given such an aggressive, unpredictable line, we have to take measures to protect our interests, somehow hedge the risks,” he said, adding that “such unpredictability is dangerous for the whole world.”

    I get the feeling Putin has played out this chess match many times in his head and at the round table with his advisors. Looking at everyone of his most recent successes on the world stage, economically, trade wise and militarily I’m pretty sure he has a counter move that will leave egg on our faces once again.

    The only consolation here is that someone else is degrading us in the arena of world opinion instead of our professors, news outlets, movie industry and ourselves. Under the onslaught of years of being programed into believing we are a racist, sexiest, homophobic, islamaphobic, climate changing bottom feeders and fanatical bible thumping Christian morons I’m amazed we bother to exist one more day. Kudo’s to the programed programmers, job well done.

    We obviously have nothing worthwhile to contribute and we have been so brainwashed into self hating political correctness I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t even know how anymore. I mean when we blame our personal life conditions on events that happened to our ancestors hundreds of years past what else can we do.

    So lets agree to throw in the towel now, start ripping apart anything left standing that might have or had value and save everyone else in the world from doing it for us. We can even put some icing on the top by blaming some successful guy in life whose running for president for every self defeating decision our past politicians have made that we supported for good measure.
