We in the west will go to war when the economy needs a war and that is not very far away by the looks of things....

Putin rolled the dice here and hit snake eyes. He is too much of a gambler. Hn Never thought we could be united enough to react. God, he so misjudged us. All of these politics crap games to Americans end at the shore line.
You know McCain is saying outright what Russia did was an act of war - and I really think he is right this time.
Grahm is saying 99 out the 100 senators think Russia hacked our election and are prepared to go much further than Obama on this. I think he is right too.
And they are teamed up with the key democratic senators like Schumer and others on all of this. Watch the hearings that will start late next week if you have any doubts.
If the above is true - how do you think this is likely to end??
I think - if war - it is likely to look something like the Schliefen (sp?) movements from a hundred years ago. SO about 14 days or so. Russia will never get off a shot at us that can hit - and I think that for a lot of reasons - but we can certainly hit them, and they have to know that. But they may have too far to pull back at this point.
What is it Mark Twain said..."that history may not repeat itself, but it certainly does rhyme." Something like that.
Strange, but something like this happened almost exactly 100 years ago.
