I don't understand why America is complaining about Russia hacking.
All Russia did was engage in the same game of "regime change" that the US invented.
Except, this time, they didn't use guns, training insurgents, and spending billions of dollars and years of effort to accomplish the goal.
Just a few well placed hacks on the email servers of the regime they wanted to get out of power, to put their guy Trump in office.
Bits and bytes, and in milliseconds, they accomplish more than the US did in the last decade.
How is Russia promoting regime change in America, any different from the US causing regime change in Libya, Iraq, Syria, etc..except for the level of violence required and the cost of operations?
I'd say the Russian methodology is superior. Not a single life was lost. Hardly any money spent. They did it so secretly that the US can't even prove without a doubt that it was them that did it.
