Obama Declares War Vs Russia, Report

In what seems to be an unlikely turn of events, U.S. President Barack Obama may declare war on Russia. The president took the hardline during the sidelines of the recent G20 Summit, saying that Russia could be intervening in the U.S. elections, risking a cyberwar. Will the United States declare war on Russia?

Obama Takes Hardline on Russia

President Obama raised the issue of Russian hackers attacking America’s cyberspace. The statement came following the G20 conference in Hangzhou. The official brought up the issue during the summit. There was anti-Russia hysteria in the United States prompted by declarations that Russia has convinced Republican nominee Donald Trump to be on their side. Previously, there were reports that Trump has converted to the Kremlin and is helping the country undermine the United States.

“We have had problems with cyber intrusions from Russia in the past,” Sputnik quoted Obama, although he clarified that the United States will not simply resort to “cycle of escalation.”

“What we cannot do is have a situation where this becomes the wild, wild West, where countries that have significant cyber capacity start engaging in unhealthy competition or conflict through those means,” said Obama.

Nonetheless, it is important to note that the U.S. president do not make threats idly. The White House has started investigation on Russian intervention during the 2016 president campaign, and after the letter of Senator Harry Reid to FBI Director James Comey suggesting Putin could change the results.

More importantly, another report from the Telegraph said that Obama urged Putin not to allow cyberspace become the next “wild, wild west.” Specifically, Obama had a 90-minute meeting with Putin during the sidelines of the summit. The official described the meeting as “candid, blunt and businesslike.”
