As punishment and in response to the alleged hacking of the US elections by Russia, President Obama has levelled serious sanctions against Russia-- sanctions that will escalate the friction between the two countries.

The NY Times reports that the sanctions include

"...ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States and imposing sanctions on Russia's two leading intelligence services, including four top officers of the military intelligence unit the White House believes ordered the attacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations.
"In a sweeping set of announcements, the United States was also expected to release evidence linking the cyberattacks to computer systems used by Russian intelligence. Taken together, the actions would amount to the strongest American response ever taken to a state-sponsored cyberattack aimed at the United States.
"The sanctions were also intended to box in President-elect Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump has consistently cast doubt that the Russian government had anything to do with the hacking of the D.N.C. or other political institutions, saying American intelligence agencies could not be trusted and suggesting that the hacking could have been the work of a "400-pound guy" lying in his bed."
Note that Obama has still not provided evidence that Russia did what he accuses it of. Note that this allows the profoundly failed Democratic establishment leadership to continue to be able to blame Russia for their monumentally incompetent, total election rout.

This decision puts the stability of the world and peace at greater risk. It's another one of a large collection of bad moves Obama can add to his legacy.

I'm still waiting to see any real evidence other than claims by Intelligence Agency directors with a history of lying to congress and the public.
