I dont need approval Bojan, I never have and never will. And if I did, I would never bother you for it.

 

OTOH, it would be nice, once or twice, to hear an admission from Team Slav when I am right. Even a broke clock is right twice a day, and to hear you guys go on about The Cold War, Salisbury, Alexander Litvinenko, Ukraine,MH17, Georgia, and half a dozen other threads, im completely wrong, every last time, even when the facts subsequently bear me out such as with Salisbury and MH17. Never, ever right. Yes Bojan, contrary to your continual refrain,  I can admit im sometimes wrong. I can even happily concede that I may usually be wrong. Always wrong? No.

 

Instead we get the continual, unending refrain  on this thread and elsewhere throughout the site 'we did nothing wrong, we was set up, it was the lying CNN/CIA/MI6/Porton Down/Ukrainians'. Woe betide me to point out when the lies dont join up, that it doesnt make any sense, that a source isnt reliable, thats it 57 entirely different theories that dont agree with each other, that there are photographs pointing to a contrary position that is more likely. No, Russia, unendingly, is the one that has been put in the frame by me, and the apparent troll network you believe Bellingcat to be.

 

So rather than keep pointing the finger at my conduct, go look in a mirror guys and reflect on the past 10 years of agitprop you have been conducting or endorsing.  I dont honestly think you even notice what you are doing anymore.

 

Im done with arguing with you all. You want to drown yourself in Kremlin sponsored crap, go right to it. You deserve it.

Trump confirms cyberattack on Russian trolls to deter them during 2018 midterms

 

President Trump has acknowledged in an interview with a Washington Post columnist that he ordered a clandestine military cyberstrike against Russian trolls in 2018 to disrupt their Internet access during the midterm elections.

 

Asked by columnist Marc Thiessen whether he had authorized the operation, Trump said “Correct,” according to a piece posted Friday. Until now, neither the White House nor the Pentagon had publicly confirmed the operation, which had been classified.

Trump sought to frame his action as an example of being more aggressive than his predecessor in countering the Kremlin. President Barack Obama, he said, “knew before the [2016] election that Russia was playing around. Or he was told. Whether or not it was so or not, who knows? And he said nothing.”

 

In fact, the Obama administration publicly called out Moscow in October 2016 for its hacking of Democratic computers, and Obama directly raised the matter with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In December of that year, Obama imposed sanctions on Russia over its interference in the presidential election.  The Washington Post last year reported on the U.S. Cyber Command operation against the Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg, a company underwritten by an oligarch close to Putin. IRA trolls were active during the 2016 campaign, posing as Americans to post material online in an effort to stoke conflict by exploiting racial and other societal tensions.  The operation was part of the first offensive cyber-campaign against Russia designed to thwart attempts to interfere with a U.S. election, officials told The Post. It marked the first use by Cybercom of new authorities granted by Trump and Congress in 2018 to bolster offensive capabilities.

 

The attack began on Election Day and lasted several days, preventing the Russians from mounting a disinformation campaign that cast doubt on the election results, officials said.
