Kim Jun whatever should cry us a river! Have you forgotten that NK has been testing nukes in violation to UN order. They sank an SK ship some years back and nothing was done except well, more sanctions. They are shooting rockets and developing ICBMs which threaten global peace.

Yes they do , if they don't how come they have online shopping malls , YouTube videos and other things , somebody called me a liar yesterday or 3 days ago , I guess we'll all know I wasn't lying all along


Obama is the type of leader Nigeria needs not clueless Luck Joesatan , And the funny guy who said China may have been able to catch a glimpse of of US's defence systems , its not in the realm of impossibilities , however , just like Guantanamo bay is a dedicated prison for war criminals and terrorists , Joint Operations with FBI, CIA,DOD et all. Have a dedicated war computer room , computers not connected to US infrastructures or data bank ,whose sole purpose is cyber warfare , rarely used hardly talked about

Finally , apart from dos attack , I'm sure some sensitive files have been moved from NK's servers , won't be surprised if Kim Hun's nude photos , videos or files are all over internet in a few days those files will contain secrets and lies of the present NK government and it will spark a revolution among citizens. If / when this happens there'll be war crimes. Terrorism , and outcry from citizens and this will permit the world to send forces into NK and the new leader will operate a democratic and transparent Government

This is Obama's plan as revealed by my over active mind

Because I almost always see a bigger picture
The regime in NK has a very tight grip over its citizens. Releasing controversial documents won't have any effect on the people.
The only way to take Kim down is through a coup or direct invasion.

You are peddling lies. There is no proof that North korea attacked Sony. Days before the big cyber attack, the attackers have threatened sony executives and demanded money. Also the virus used in the attack are readily available and sold pre-packaged in the malware black market. The USA have not at anytime laid down any proof that the attack was from N.Korea apart from saying the virus bears resemblance to other ones that have been attributed to N.korea. There is a sinister intention going on here and bottom feeders like you are just helping to feed the lies without examining the facts.

If you've been following the Sony, North Korea and
the US government saga then you should know what
this is about. But let me give a brief summary
because I'm about to board a flight.

Sony Pictures released a movie called The Interview,
a comedy about a fictional assassination of North
Korean leader, Kim Jong Un.. North Korean didn't
find it funny and hacked into Sony's computers,
rendering thousands of computers inoperable and
forced Sony to take its entire computer network
offline. That wasn't enough, they then threatened
terror attack on US citizens if Sony doesn't cancel
showing the movie, forcing Sony to pull the interview
from theaters and losing almost $200m. Then the US
government got involved and told Sony to go ahead and
release the movie, that they don't take lightly to
threats and promised to retaliate for the attack on
Sony. It looks like they've kept their to promise. North
Korea is currently offline. Lol

"Internet connectivity between North Korea and
the outside world is currently suffering one of
its worst outages in recent memory, suggesting
that the country may be enduring a mass cyber
attack a few days after President Obama warned
the US would launch a "proportional response" to
North Korea's hack against Sony
North Korea, which has four official networks
connecting the country to the Internet -- all of
which route through China -- began experiencing
intermittent problems yesterday and today went
completely black, according to Doug Madory,
director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research in
Hanover, New Hampshire." Bloomberg reports.

I find this so hilarious! Moral of the story, don't mess with the USA.

In comparison, USA maintains a stock of around 7000 nuclear weapons with 2000 readily deployable at a button touch. They and their allies have continually waged baseless wars to steal resources from otherwise peaceful nations and impose puppet regimes. I have not heard N.korea being involved in a war in the last several decades. unless war has changed meaning. Maybe it now means, another country killing people when western countries are not involved.

There are two main weapon systems suits that (mostly western forces) try to never use unless its fir real war and against a peer state [read China,Russia]:

Cyber war tools (stuxnet,major bandwidth hacks,communication nodes and operating systems).

Electronic warfare tools (radar systems,sensor disruption,anti disruptive systems[resilient system ]anti-jamming technologies like frequency hopping and DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum).

Not a matter of movies, even when this systems are built they try to test them as far away from human/urban areas as much as possible.Places like china lake and far up the Arctic or Antarctica places it will be hard to have spy's come looking .

The U.S. Air Force, has taken the lead in developing electronic tools for attacking and defending satellite communications, he satellites themselves, and has been training people to use these techniques. This effort involves figuring out new, or improved, ways to jam satellites. Then you keep that stuff secret, in case potential enemies have not figured this out themselves. Next, you work on ways to defeat the weapons developed. Most of this is playing around with the signals themselves. You can un-jam a jamming signal with another signal. However, a lot of trial and error is required and you want to get that done way in advance of any actual war. When you do have to use this stuff for real, you have to expect that the enemy may well have come up with some angle you missed. Thus, there will be some rapid improvisation, and you will have more time and resources for this if you have worked out ahead of time the details of disasters you have already anticipated. No one is releasing much information about this, for obvious reasons. There won't be much discussion from any government, unless there is a terrorist attack using these techniques.

I'm pretty sure the US weighed the pros and cons before embarking on this.

But we get it.

You can't just INVADE, you need excuse to , I believe South Korea is doing better, and if Northerners can call on the Southerners , Southerners can call the world , that's an excuse to invade

NK does have tight grip on its people because its armed forces believes in the greater good , If anyone can prove via secret documents that Superior leader has not had the good of the country at heart all this while , they'll be divided, it could lead to a coup or even to war, the leaking of those documents has traumatic , psychological effects on The Supreme leader and the country and its the first step towards liberating the North

Moreso, i am sure US deployed a back door in the network, something which will stay there immediately after thier network was rebooted and restored grin

Absolutely America is. I think most
western nations fear China too China is growing larger both militarily and economically because of a system created by the the US and other western countries. China also isn't a democracy in the way that most western countries would like. It also has nuclear weapons and most industrial powers are economically dependent upon them. And don't forget that china holds a huge amount of US debt and it keeps taking on more and more US debt (amongst other country's debts). America can't simply attack as this would cripple the US economy and cause countless deaths on both sides. China could even launch their nuclear weapons. All the US can do is integrate them into the system more and more and make them become dependent on the US and other nations as much as possible.

How do you guys even reason? Your thought process lacks critical thinking.

What good will it do China to launch a nuclear weapon on a country whose assets they own?

American is a stupeed country! I mean, why make a move about assassinating the president of another country? Using his real name and the real name of the country? I mean on his own soil? Is there any greater insult than this?

Imagine, a movie made about killing obama and ridiculing him to the whole world!? Why is is when they make movies about American presidents they never use their real names? And at the end of the day, the president always is some sort of a hero, kills the bad guys and never dies even with all the odds stacked against him!

I can name 20 movies at d top of my head about American presidents attached but the manage to kill the bad guys and lived!

And for the fact that obama was behind Sony is just disgusting. Hypocracy at its highest. The are bullies and nothin more!

He didn't support sony, thanks
