I think it’s time the US and our allies return the favor - something to let Russia know they’re not the only ones who can play this game. Maybe something like a 3-day nationwide power or internet outage would be appropriate. I don’t see how we’re protecting our national interests when Russia attacks us, and we do nothing but whine about it.

However, we are not now in a position to attribute this activity to the Russian Government.


Either the Russian government did or they didn’t.

Simply that quote is a hedge.

What makes you think we are doing “nothing” about it?
The USIC does not telegraph it’s moves.
Anyway, something like taking down their national power grid would be an official act of war and would be monumentally stupid.
Any Internet outage would restrict currently ongoing operations via the Internet, and hurt US interests so that 's out too.
Remember, Obama didn’t announce he was sending in Delta Team to assassinate Bin Laden, he won’t tell anyone about active countermeasures here either (unlike how loudmouth Trump would.)

Great that we’re now formally acknowledging that Russia is attempting to undermine our democracy, but the more interesting question is what we’re prepared to do in response?

Russia acting to destabilize western democracies is a huge threat (hacking, propaganda, funding right-wing parties, etc), but short of war, what exactly can be done about it? Harsher sanctions?

Please identify the “little countries” where we have attempted to use hacking to undermine the integrity of and confidence electoral systems.
