Red lights flashing

On Tuesday, July 17, Dan Coats, director of U.S. National Intelligence who was appointed by Republican Donald Trump, warned, “The digital system that serves this country is under attack. The warning lights are blinking red again.”

Coats is saying that everything we depend on to live our lives is at risk: All levels of our government’s ability to function, our military systems, our electoral systems, our nuclear capability, our power grid, our financial system, our transportation systems, our electrical systems, healthcare systems, water and sewer systems, banking systems, corporate and private sector business systems and virtually every system that supports our national, state, local and personal existence is dependent on computers.

Russia can shut them all down. What are we doing about that? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
