32. For generations the USAF has flown missions up and down or eastern coastline to protect....

against attacks from the then Soviet Union. Our government has realized the threat for years . Now for whatever reason we fail to see the serious threat from the continuous cyber attacks from the very same bad actors in Russia.

We realize at least as far back as the 1960 that the government NEEDED to be the protecting force. Not individuals, not states and not private businesses. Now we need the same level of shielding from this more dangerous unseen clandestine attacks or probes from the Russian state.

According multiple sources with knowledge of cyber warfare it is possible for bad players to disrupt our power gird, disrupt out telecommunication systems and disrupt our water supplies. In other words disrupt our entire infrastructure. WITHOUT firing a shot and without the use of conventional weapons.

Why is our government NOT taking this threat seriously and protecting that one bank in Maine and all other institutions within our boarders.

Forget the stupid wall to stop immigrants seeking a better life. Build protection around our entire country from cyber warfare.

THAT IS THE GOVERNMENTS JOB!
