Welcome to Cold War II

US prepped for massive cyber assault on Russia | New York Post

"'We’re sending a message,' Biden said during an interview with 'Meet the Press' that will air on Sunday. 'We have the capacity to do it. It will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact,'"

Oh, for those halcyon days in 2009 when Hillary Clinton merrily presented the Russians with a big red RESET button. Apparently, they’ve pushed it. Or maybe we have.

Ironies abound. It seems only yesterday Russia was that glittering place where a heroic Edward Snowden resided with his girlfriend, happily employed and making big bucks lecturing U.S. college students via satellite. 

Now, Russia is again the Evil Empire and Snowden’s pals at WikiLeaks are its stooges, pushing doctored and forged documents intended to crash the American electoral process in service of the World’s Loosest Canon, Donald Trump.

We can’t wait for the next act. Or, maybe we can.
