    “Cyber-invasion?” When does the war start, Bob?

    US backs a coup in Ukraine, but that’s nothing next to the awesome threat of Russian tweets!

      Gasp, I’m convinced. I reckon this is it – nuclear combat toe to toe with the Rooskies!

      Frankly amazed how quickly many jounalists and Democrats fall in line with war propaganda. Thankfully the U.S. never meddles in foreign elections (*cough*, *ahem*).

      The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University.

      That number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.
