President Obama has been steadfast in his determination to avoid war, in the sense of actually dropping bombs, and Republicans always hated that. I always thought it was the right approach.

But today, we are faced with a serious problem: Russia hacked the U.S. election and the guy who won that election encouraged them, publicly, to do so.

Russia just committed the modern-day version of an act of war, and the incoming president encouraged them to do so. Since we know Donald Trump will never stop Russia, because of his business conflicts and the money he owes their government, a swift and sure action must be taken by President Obama.

Sanctions are nowhere near enough. We must, unfortunately, bomb Russia, even if innocent civilians are killed. There is no other appropriate response.
