Trump Brings the U.S. Into the 21st Century By Beefing Up Cyber Attack Capabilities

Obama was a feckless tw*t who wasn’t interested in countering Russia’s superior cyber attack capabilities. Trump, a competent, modern and aware president has leveled the playing field.

If Russia is plunged into darkness one day, Washington may well be behind it—or so US officials are telling the New York Times. In a strategic shift, the US military’s Cyber Command is planting malware in Russia’s electrical grid to offset the threat that Russia can do the same to America. The FBI and Homeland Security have warned for years that Moscow has planted malware in US power plants, water supplies, and gas and oil pipelines. Now, with President Trump and Congress giving Cyber Command more leeway, it’s game on. The US “has gotten far, far more aggressive over the past year,” says a top intelligence officer on condition of anonymity. “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”

  1. I would have greatly preferred it if the NYT had kept their damned mouths shut – regardless of whether the story is true or not.

    Usage note: If used to mean “c*nt” then putting that asterisk in “tw*t” is appropriate. However, the OED offers “A fool; a stupid or ineffectual person” as one of the meanings of “twat”. I’d say that no asterisk is needed in that case.

  2. As in “Dr. Strangelove” if your enemy can destroy
    you but he doesn’t know you can destroy him in the
    same way that power is useless to stop him unless he
    knows you have it.

  3. I’m with you Uncle Al. I saw this yesterday and had to assume it’s but another hit piece from the Chinese-US Donors/CoC/anti-Trump camp. They’re playing a dangerous game.

  4. Lets be reminded that the Clintons got a boatload of cash from the Chicoms in exchange for a boatload of our top secret technology.
