Would USA go to war with another country that hacked their elections, the voting machines, power grid, the military and members of congress?


For the sake of argument, let’s say it’s iran.

Update 2:

What if the same country posed as Isis to threaten military wives?

    Cyber war, maybe.

    No. But UK, Germany, France and Canada might.

    Since the age of nuclear weapons, we've carefully avoided war with any nation that could fight back. Since WWII we've used our military more than 100 times, but always in little 3rd-world, 4th rate countries where we thought we could win easily and cheaply (but lately this hasn't been the case).

    We and Russia have fought 'proxy wars' where we supported one side and the Russians supported the other. We've all tried to avoid an all-out nuclear war.

    And all the answerers who say 'They didn't do that', I wonder what they'd say if it was Hillary the Russians wanted, not Trump. 8^)

    First why would a president invade a country that illegally got him in?

    Second once proof was found the election was hacked, you still need to prove it was government sanctioned -- or at least from a foreign power.

    Third, there will be too much to deal with the unelected resident than to stop the country that hacked the system.

    And finally, there is a solid paper trail saying Trump didn't get in legally which included intimidation tactics and fake news over pizzagate.

    But then, nobody has hacked our elections, voting machines, power grid or military. As for members of Congress, didn't Debbie Whatshername Scheisse hire and protect a bunch of foreign nationals who hacked Democrat emails and info and allowed them to flee the country?

    And if Russia did any of that, as liberals feel, why did Obama do nothing for 6 months, then make a weakass show gesture of kicking out a handful of Russian diplomats? Clearly, that means Democrats don't think the US is worth protecting from foreign intervention.

    Actions would be taken that could conceivably escalate into a war, but it is unlikely to start out as a military response.

    Russia has done several of those things and we haven't gone to war over it.

    Probably not.

    Also, no one hacked the elections. Lolz
