Did President Biden just issue a veiled cyber-threat to Putin's pipelines?

I heard it that way.

Edit: He just clarified. It's no longer a veiled threat. It's explicit.

Their response: "You could see them kinda go...'Whoah'"

2. NPR said before President Biden's speech that the USA has the capability of

"shutting off the lights to the kremlin".

3. Really? That's been my fantasy for a long time.

Good to know! (Assuming NPR actually knows...)

4. They also said you have to be careful with that sort of a move because you know

war would not be good. This is delicate stuff.

5. Yeah - he is basically elevating cyber to the same level as nuclear threats.

They are not disconnected.

9. NPR is not the only ones who have pointed that out.

Malcolm Nance, and others who are knowledgeable on these matters have said as much, as well. The Stuxnet attack on Iran's nuclear centrifuges back during the Obama years was apparently just a preview of our cyber capabilities.

11. It was the latter.

Obama set up all sorts of cybr guardrails and booby traps before he left office. Trump either didn't trigger them when needed, or he dismantled them, like he tried to do with all things Obama.

12. We can't go on letting them hack our systems with impunity.

I understand people justifiably concerned with escalation, but if we keep giving in to the bully, escalation will surely ensue.
