Now this is a bit scary. I found this linked from wikileaks twitter account. Which had an unusually higher amount of tweets today vs. most.

It's quite obvious why Assange would be concerned (or any whistle-blower for that matter) with this type of rhetoric from Clinton. Especially when you consider that she has tried very hard to connect the email links of hers and the DNC to Russia.

So if you die hard Clinton fans thought Bush was a war monger, here's just a glimpse of what this Libya loot and burn Secretary of State has in plan if she's President.

TheHill



“As president, I will make it clear that the United States will treat cyberattacks just like any other attack,” the Democratic presidential nominee said. “We will be ready with serious political, economic and military responses.”


Clinton called for the U.S. to “lead the world in setting the rules in cyberspace.”

LOL

Hillary and the DNC have been the biggest victims so far and there's more.

No wonder she is bitter and raspy.

Okay so that's the US at war with Russia, China, Belarus, the DPRK, Iran, who else? Well, "allies" hack each other all the time, so throw NATO in there as well.

Sounds like something to avoid. Hillary will start World War III. She must not be President.

Personally i'm in favour of throwing her in a CIA-run prison in Uzbekistan for the remainder of her years.

I think it all depends on the context - what did the cyber attack do? Did it endanger lives and infrastructure? There isn't a clear definition of when a cyber attack constitutes an act of war on the United States...

Here: LINK - military.com


Pentagon leaders are still working to determine when, exactly, a cyber-attack against the U.S. would constitute an act of war, and when, exactly, the Defense Department would respond to a cyber-attack on civilian infrastructure, a senior Defense Department official told lawmakers on Wednesday.

A cyber strike as an act of war "has not been defined," Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security Thomas Atkin told the House Armed Services Committee. "We're still working toward that definition."

The White House and Pentagon let it be known in 2011 that acts such as shutting down the U.S. power grid via a cyber-attack could be seen as an act of war that would bring not only a cyber-response but perhaps"a missile down one of your smokestacks," a DoD official said at the time.



So...you want her to be weak on this if America is attacked in a way that shuts down a power-grid? Or causes a disaster or a nuclear energy plant to go into core melt-down??

Granted, without a well-thought-out definition, we don't know how Clinton or her military advisers would want to act, but for bombs to drop there would have to be a reason, and a definition of an act of war, in place. That would be something to watch carefully. If retaliation can be used as a deterrent, that is also a good thing.

I honestly would expect the definition of what constitutes a cyber-attack worthy of response to be on the "to do" list of whomever is the next President.

Is that the "smoke" I keep reading about? Did You read the asterisk at the bottom, I mean that is almost as important..


* All Military action must first be approved by The Clinton Fraudation™ and fees for consulting and logistics will be charged. Due to the numerous nations who are donors to TCF™; it depends on who donated the most funds as to who will be bombed. All attacks on 'Top Shelf' nations MUST be approved. Our Overlords in our 51st state, Israel get free reign, if questioned use the term "Chosen People" and then blame the dirty Palestinians except for Abu Ghaolst who donated close to $3M, leave him and family alone (their home is whited out on current maps)

This woman is a shining example of the psychopathic global elite!

Cyber-attacks are one of the last ways that they can be exposed, it is no wonder that her masters are pushing this kind of agenda.

We can only pray that Assanges coming surprise will not only implicate Shillary, but also those elite families calling the shots in the background with a full exposure of the dark deeds.

Wait... cyberattacks? oh snip! I better empty My cache like the IT guy at work showed Me how to delete porn..

I don't want to end up on the Clinton Cabal hit-list or else I might shoot Myself in the back of the skull 3x and have it listed as a "suicide"...

I know make the beneficiary The Clinton Fraudation™ and see how long You last, rest assured You'd get something exotic so they can collect the "double indemnity clause". If it read "This pays extra if the decedent is wearing red shoes and a derby hat.." guess what?

How do you respond 'militarily' to a cyber attack, and how can you be sure who actually initiated the attack, if they were a state actor or another kind of individual or group acting within that nation but not on its authority, and how do you make sure that you're retaliating against the right individual or group, and it's ID hasn't been switched around with someone else's to confuse?

And do we want someone who is utterly witless and 'unsophisticated' when it comes to anything cyber to make the decisions on this?

I really want to see what kind of $ storm would develop had Donald Trump said this.

I guess since it's Hillary, it's ok thought.

The lady who can't figure out how email works thinks she understands how cyber attacks work?

If she had any understanding, she'd realize how much of a criminal action it was to put classified material on a server in her basement.

Of course Hillary will bomb attack, destroy any whistleblower or anyone who "cyber" attacks.

She can't keep having her secrets exposed.

I do wonder if her response will be just as drastic if the cyber attack is domestic?

I just want to add, if the only way you can effectively govern, is by doing it "in secret" then you're doing it wrong.

Cyber attack = Computer crime. Hillary's email issues = Computer crime? She is right. I hope the 82nd airdrops some troops on her location.

It's quite obvious why Assange would be concerned (or any whistle-blower for that matter) with this type of rhetoric from Clinton.

hacking is illegal, assange now garnering support from republicans, while not to long ago the same people called him a security risk is hypocritical.


when you consider that she has tried very hard to connect the email links of hers and the DNC to Russia.

russia implicated themselves, putin backs trump, publicly, she dosent have to try very hard.


So if you die hard Clinton fans thought Bush was a war monger, here's just a glimpse of what this Libya loot and burn Secretary of State has in plan if she's President.

all based on this quote,


“As president, I will make it clear that the United States will treat cyberattacks just like any other attack,” the Democratic presidential nominee said. “We will be ready with serious political, economic and military responses.”

politically and economically, then militarily.
if she hadn't have tacked that on, she would be deemed to soft on foreign hackers.

It's legal to hack me, it's illegal to hack criminals.

OK I get it.

And another thing, if you hook your nuclear reactor control to the Internet, we have bigger issues than emails.

Excellent logic, iTruthSeeker! Hillary would be able to add another combat story to the one where she was shot in the butt while her helicopter rose. Maybe sending the 82nd Airborne will finally get Hillary brought to trial.
