“cyberattack would precede any major military action”

If true, the attack did not do enough harm to the defense forces.

They aren’t the only ones writing about it.
I’m well aware of the deep state’s wishes for war with Russia.

Once again the Biden’s are about to get caught flatfooted. They were making predictions in the six month range. Gonna be more like 6 days.

An awful lot of money and time is being spent in preparing people for the Russian attack. But that wascally PUTIN still hasn’t attacked.

So when will he attack? Cheesh.

I can’t imagine taking down websites is a very effective cyber attack.

Are the lights still on and the phone working? If so then a real attack hasn’t been launched.
