Wednesday, Hillary Clinton got her pander on and spoke to the annual convention of the American Legion. She gave Donald Trump a couple of good zings and then she decided she had to talk tough:
As President, I will make it clear, that the United States will treat cyber attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic and military responses.
Stop and think about it. Does anyone believe the same bitter old harpy who countermanded the order of the Secretary of Defense to send a rescue team to the Benghazi embassy for fear they were wearing the wrong uniform would act forcefully in the face of a cyberattack on the United States? Does it even make sense to make this threat?
We have all seen Hillary Clinton in action enough to know that she is an utter fraud and poseur. You don’t even need the video to hear that nasal screech she gets when she’s making an emphatic statement or has caught Bill shagging the household staff… again. She is indecisive. She is risk averse. No one in the whole world believes she would use military force in retaliation to a cyberattack.
Making this kind of threat is just like Barack Obama drawing his innumerable “red lines” that have never resulted in anything more serious than a scowl.
