Obama imposes new sanctions against North Korea in response to Sony hack

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jan/02/obama-imposes-sanctions-north-korea-sony-hack-the-interview

<< US president signs executive order leveling targeted sanctions against North Korean officials after cyber-attack on Sony Pictures. >>

This is the bigger issue here. Why does the US impose sanctions on NK for someone in that country allegedly hacking the website of an avg company???

This is huge news IMHO and the American public should be more outraged by the gross misuse of political power to protect a random company.

I dont want my tax dollars being used to protect the financial well being of any company.
I know companies are "people" too nowadays (sarcasm fully meant) but this is completely unbelievable...

Might be worse than that. I've heard speculation the involvement might be because of the court case against Sony. Would they be able to dismiss the case by claiming the hack was the action of a state? Outside their control basically.

Wait, so it's North Korea behind the hack again now? Swear I read a leak somewhere stating it was just a bunch of random hackers and the US were blaming North Korea in the media so they can see how far they can go with imposing sanctions on the internet OUTSIDE of the US. Anything that comes from the US of this nature, take it with a pinch of salt - they're full of shit.

And I threaten less than one care given.  Really, no one cares about North Korea's "leaders".  The whole thing about the movie is just a circus to make money and I love it.  Good for Sony and everyone making money off this ridiculous show.  lol

My wife and I went to see that movie recently. I thought it was very funny, for what it was. We got plenty of laughs out of it. Rogan and Franco are definitely no Laurel and Hardy, but they have good chemistry together on screen.
It doesn't take much to anger the man-child Kim, so it should be no surprise that he was upset about this, especially since the movie did in fact have some truth to it as far as just how miserable the North Korean people are in general and how strong the State-run propaganda machine is as far as trying to convince the NK people and the rest of the world that everything is awesome in NK.

I think the movie is greatly undervalued and unprecedented. Say what you will about the quality of the movie itself, and its strange parallels to the Lord of the Rings, it blasts the 'cult of personality' around the North Korean leader they have fought to maintain for so long. The movie reminded me of the Vice documentary on the country. There are a lot of seeds of truth worked into the ways Kim Jong Un's character is handled.

In all the scenarios based on reading of Korean history and of news trends over the years, never did I consider a comedy released by Seth Rogen and James Franco could lead to destabilization of the country in the most 'emperor has no pants' sense.

No need for any response. This movie is a piece of crap. Watching it carries its own punishment.

After watching the movie to see what all the fuss was about
I sort of have to agree with you on this it was a punishment in its own right lol.

It's worth the Netflix watch  Cheesy but paying $11 at a theatre would have sucked

Tell me about it! I saw this morning that it is on Netflix now. I could have saved a few bucks if I had known that ahead of time.

I think the new film will be about Russia. Have you heard Scorpions song "Wind Of Change" in the end?  Wink
