I'm getting tired of blaming Russia for things when we have no evidence. Can we start blaming someone else? There are plenty of options: a number of Middle Eastern countries, North Korea... How about one of the South American dictatorships? Venezuela is a dysfunctional oppressive Socialist regime, they'd be a good choice. Or Canada. Yes, we can always blame Canada.

Still not entirely sure on the /s on this one, but the blame Canada is a good hint :).

I would say that the CIA made this so they can blame it on North Korea. This way that have a reason to attack them finaly.

And *I* am getting sick of Russians coming onto social media and lying about this. 16 US government agencies say Russia committed cyberattacks against America., Comrade.

Stop your damned lying.

Not trying to get political or anything but the whole bit about 16 or 17 U.S. intelligence agencies confirming cyber attacks from Russia as it related to the recent election - is a lie perpetuated by many media sources who since have had to make retractions. There were only 4 agencies that were in agreement and many of the others were in disagreement with that assessment. Even the main 4 weren't in total agreement.

Just wanted to clear that up since it's been so widely repeated and been confirmed to be false.
