Did Biden make Putin pinky swear, cross his heart and hope to die if he attacks items on the list anyway?
Does that list allow Putin a free hand to go and cyberattack anything in the United States that isn’t on it? “You didn’t put it on list, comrade, so we hack it,” Putin chuckles as he text Xi with a string of laughing emojis.
On what planet is it a good idea to give a potential adversary a list of things you do not want him to attack?
When you play Risk, the classic game of world conquest, do you give your competitors a list of countries you don’t want them to attack? Would you expect them to abide by that?
When you play Stratego, the classic strategy war game of intrigue, do you tell your opponent where your spies and bombs are? Do you honestly expect to win if you do that?
When you run for office, do you go meet with your competitor and hand them a list of the skeletons in your closet with a plea not to go after them? Would you expect any of those items to not end up in the media within a nanosecond?
Hey Vlad, here are most sensitive sites and infrastructure. Pretty please, will you cross your hear and hope to die promise you won't attack them?
