A cyber attack by Russia in retaliation for Syria bombings to bring down our NHS, electricity supplies and banks. Is it possible and is it likely.

Yes and Yes!

Also it is totally deniable. There is very little chance of nailing down the source of such an attack.

Whether they will, or not, is a matter of politics and what they feel they can gain out of such a move.

As a demonstration of our impotence, it would be pretty convincing

        Do we or our allies not have similar technology, if so then nobody would benefit from a cyber war.
