Could cyberattack on Turkey be a Russian retaliation?

At least 400,000 websites in Turkey are under cyberattack, with unsubstantiated suspicions that the hackers are of Russian origin.

The attack, known as a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, reportedly started on Monday morning, and still continues to cripple systems.

The targets were all websites with the country’s official domain name suffix: the two-letter country code .tr, which is used by hundreds of thousands of websites, including government institutions, universities and schools, the military and thousands of national businesses.

          NATO didn’t mind handing Kosovo to Islam, or handing Libya to jihadists.
          ALL NATO leaders are currently importing Muslims into their respective countries as fast as they can.
          NATO is not our friend.
