Can't it?  War is politics by other means.  If Russia wanted to
install its puppets ruling over America - well, the result is
(hopefully) short term (unless there's a real chance of Trump winning
the 2020 election at this rate), but it is still achieved.

And was this not information warfare against the American public?
