Russia was very likely responsible for the hack that has upended the DNC.
Russian Sabotage In The American Election.
The evidence seems to be growing that there has been Russian sabotage in the American election. Even though the outcry from American politicians, especially those in the DNC (Democratic National Committee), we shouldn’t be surprised that another country would try doing what we have been guilty. In a weird way, it’s like “political Karma” has come around to haunt us.
What I’m referring to is the American government’s successful attempt to sabotage Australian election of 1975, when the CIA was successful in unseating the prime minister, Gough Whitlam. The US government felt that Prime Minister Whitlam was a threat to American interests, primarily because he was opposed to the war in Vietnam. American sabotage of the 1975 election began several years earlier, during the Nixon administration.
In the current case of Russian sabotage in the American election, they have hacked the servers the Democratic National Committee and leaked sensitive emails to the press. These emails are embarrassing to the DNC, especially candidate Hillary Clinton, as she battles Donald Trump for the presidency. The Russian sabotage is half-day because
The Russian sabotage is being committed, probably with the blessing of Vladimir Putin, because they want Donald Trump to win the election because Trump is more likely to turn a blind eye to Russian aggression. Trump has said that he will not interfere if the Russians were to attack our European allies, something that is extremely distressing.
Even though the Russian sabotage of our critical election is something that we should not condone, we should not forget that we have also been guilty of the same thing in our sabotage of the Australian election of 1975. The only difference between the Russians and us is that we were successful in our underhanded efforts and the attempted Russian sabotage has failed to achieve its goal. Both the Russians and the Americans deserve condemnation for their attempts to stand in the way of real democracy.
