Russian cyber attack
On Tuesday, Donald Trump basically asked Russia for a cyber attack on Clinton and find the 30,000 missing emails from Secretary Clinton. More about Mr. Trump’s request for a cyber attack in a minute.
Technology will forever shape who we are, who we were, and what we will be. The only thing that we need to fully make sure of is that technology works for us and not against us. Unfortunately, this responsibility that is upon mankind has been long ignored resulting in things like smart bombs and cyber wars.
A historic election year
After both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, Donald Trump has become the Republican nominee for president and Hillary Clinton has become the Democratic nominee for president, being the first woman to ever do so. It is undeniable that 2016 will go down in the history books as the year of the Clinton vs. Trump war. But the last thing we need is a cyber war between the two.
After the FBI officially announced that Hillary Clinton will not be criminally charged for using a private email server while Secretary of State, Donald Trump has been furious and opposes the FBI’s ruling.
The Clinton scandal
The Clinton scandal has caused much distrust between voters and Hillary Clinton after it is speculated that some of these deleted emails may have had classified information. Basically, Donald Trump has sanctioned Russia’s cyberspying on the U.S. While this may be considered as treason, many people actually support the statement.
Trump, Putin, Kim Jong Un?
Russia has been accused of possibly influencing the U.S. presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. Especially while releasing the DNC emails. Many voters are against Donald Trump for his favorable views of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin. He is also accused of having favorable thoughts on some of the most renowned enemies of America including none other than Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s dictator.
Russia is a very strong adversary of the United States. Many presidents have tried to ease political tensions with Russia but have failed to do so. The United States has a long history of tensions with Russia and I certainly hope that history doesn’t repeat itself. From the Cold War to Vietnam, I don’t think Donald Trump wants to cause a war with one of the world’s strongest and largest countries.
