A treaty with Russia is overdue
Obama managed to establish a treaty with China over hacking. That seems to be working since the Chinese are not cited much anymore over hacking. A similar treaty is needed with Russia. The blatant attacks with little coverup highlight our broken relationship with Russia. Hopefully Trump can come to terms with his buddy Putin on this issue.

Re: A treaty with Russia is overdue
Even if such a treaty could be signed, would it have any meaning?

Look at how the Russians violated the various peace treaties they agreed to in Syria.

If they are prepared to flagrantly break their word in such a way that people lose their lives, what is going to stop them from doing the same in regard to hacking and cyber espionage?

The Russians are aware that the US will take no meaningful action against them when a treaty violation occurs. If there are no consequences for those actions, what is the point of having a treaty?

The US needs to "grow a pair" and actually hold their treaty partners accountable for their actions. Not just the Russians and the Chinese, but all treaty partners.

End of rant.
