    Russian Hackers Target NATO

    I don't have any delusions that the Russians wouldn't use nuclear weapons to defend themselves Mr. NSA spook. Keep destabilizing the world and blame everybody else, S.O.P. There is going to be another war because the west is pretty much made up their mind that it is to be so.
