The US government is planning to announce Thursday that North Korea is directly to blame for the devastating and unprecedented attack on Sony, according to multiple reports. Now we wait and see how the US Government may respond to that attack now that they've placed their blame.

That threat is likely retaliation for the controversial comedy "The Interview," which depicts the assassination of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un.

US Investigators have been able to parse through enough evidence now to claim that North Korea is "centrally involved."

On Tuesday, an online threat was posted against theaters planning to show Sony Corp's controversial movie. That threat promised a "bitter fate" for those who went to see the "The Interview." The movie was scheduled for general release on Dec. 25 but its release was canceled late Wednesday afternoon.

In light of the cancelation, Hollywood has not been quiet. Many have argued that the studio gave into the hackers and violated the First Amendment.

Imagine what they can/could do with our power grid.

A small EMP blast over Pyongyang ought to be as sufficient response, eh?

So, George Bush should have hacked whatever filthy movie-house did a movie about him getting whacked?

Now That The US Government Thinks North Korea Hacked Sony, Here's How It Could Respond

"One proactive move the US should consider, according to Aitel, is "declaring certain cyberattacks terrorist acts and the groups behind them terrorists," which would "set in motion a wider range of legal authority, US government/military resources, and international options."

Ha, Ha. See, Obama won't do anything...he doesn't like Americans either.

North Korea can be disconnected from the Internet.

That would end it.

Not the first time, probably won’t be the last

You see, the movie Sony pulled, The Interview, ends up with Kim young One getting whacked. So NK has a cow and hacks Sony instead of being an adult about it.

The parallel is that some Hollywierd movie studio put out a movie in which George Bush got whacked. He didn’t have his spooks hack anything and threaten to blow up theaters.

There now, is that clear?

Why does Soviet Bloc derived military style always demand huge, funky officer hats?

Best response would be to screen this movie for free in every theater in the nation, all week long.

Don’t like getting laughed at Kim? Well we’re laughing at you and your tiny fisted tantrum. Now go play with a Long Dong.

So how does a technological backwater with no electricity (see post 12) hack into a corporation like Sony? And in a world where there is a gazillion hackers with far more tools at their disposal than NK has, why wouldn’t I believe that someone outside NK did this?

I expect Obama to use his Cuba strategy.

Apologize and capitulate.
