I do believe the Russians are actually that good. But so are the Americans and the Chinese and probably at least half a dozen factions we know less about all vying for dominance. It's called world history and just like war, it's always the same

Chinese did it to Russia already

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/russia-may-be-hacking-us-more-china-hacking-us-much-n664836

1. US and China reaches mutual commercial non-hacking agreement

2. China shifts hacking efforts to Russia and steal their stuff instead

There is something to be discussed concerning the USA's cybersecurity considering there have been so many hacks and leaks lately, and there are people with the appropriate credentials to say with some authority that foreign actors (potentially even governments) bear responsibility saying so. It's something that does need to be addressed.

With that in mind, there are also people with an interest in that aspect of the issue being the central focus of the public's attention rather than the content of the materials being leaked, and so they (as politically rational actors) are attempting to keep the focus on cybersecurity rather than the content. That's why Clinton deferred to that aspect when pressed on what she'd said in her speeches and only halfheartedly (and pathetically) addressed what she'd said for a brief moment during the second debate. She has an incentive to approach the issue that way even if it is a gross thing to do. That's just the nature of the beast sometimes.

Well, their leader is the most un-American and anti-American person in the world, so...

I'm getting tired of this fear mongering, as well. Aside from 'Russia this' or 'Russia that', another fear mongering tool I'm tired of hearing is that someone, namely the government, will take away our guns. That's ALWAYS a topic a presidential candidate brings up.

It is actually more scare mongering to the aging baby boomers to remind them that change is now a bad thing, when it was desperately needed in 2008.

its all about economic power, its a geopolitical game - russia isnt fully on board with the globalists (usnatoeuopecisreal) so that is why these attacks happen, like trying to blame mh17 or the hacking on them.

the globalists want the pipeline through syria, which isnt going to happen with assad there, so ISIS

Maybe it's because there's been some sketchy activity happening in Moscow recently

By some estimates, Joseph Stalin was responsible for the deaths of 20 million people during his brutal rule, roughly 1 out of 5 citizens. Ivan (the terrible) caused the 1565 formation of the Oprichnina(Secret Police) is also significant. Russia is scary.

georgians dont like russians, but how many people know that? that;'s why kruschev gave away ukraine oblast for absolutely nothing, he was not loyal to mother russia, you can tell that much. (watch people think I am russian for saying that, lol)

the media paints russia as scary, but putin is very likely a reason why there has not been war already.
