irwin's points on US malfeasance are well taken. His question on why many here are upset misses the point, at least for me.
Sure I'm cranky with Putin and his cronies for interfering in our political process. I'm upset that, when the extent of the Russian attempts became known, there was a lackluster (at best) response from the Obama administration. More concerning for me, however, is that the trump campaign encouraged it, welcomed it and benefitted from it. trump's insistence on minimizing the current and future attempts by our rivals to again insert themselves into our political process, in defiance of every US intelligence agency simply beggars belief.
Let's not forget, we're a country with both the means and resources to acutally handle such threats.
Would irwin prefer that Americans strap on a few bombs and stroll into random places in russia as payback?
I think getting upset and asking for our elected officials to both utilize our tax monies appropriately to safeguard our democratic process sounds like a much better alternative.
