They should have just quietly posted de-photoshopped versions of NK propaganda photos.

StrangeQ: JPSimonetti: awalkingecho: Is this the part where the Imperialist Pigdog  cyberterrorists have launched the pre-emptive strike and he is now justified at making war?

My first thought. It's funny, but one of those "There's a time and a place ..." moments our parents gave us speeches about when we did stupid stuff at school.

And this is exactly the time and the place.

NK is making absurd, unrealistic, hyperbolic threats and generally making themselves look like a bunch of foolish assholes.  Holding up a mirror to show what the world really sees them as is exactly what they need right now so they'll sit down and shut the fark up.

Pumpernickel bread: Mouser: The international community learned two things today:

1. That a group of private individuals originating from the US are capable of defacing a foreign nation's official Internet presence and openly mocking that nation's leader with it.

2. That the US government is powerless to prevent a group of private individuals originating from the US from defacing a foreign nation's official Internet presence and openly mocking that nation's leader with it.

To the international community, (2) is actually the more worrisome.

1) Anonymous extends beyond the U.S. and 2) give it time.  Anonymous has only recently come into the crosshairs of governments.  The ones that have gone down already gave up everyone they knew and so it will be for most of the others.  Hackers don't have a doing time kinda temperament so will turn state's evidence once they are caught.


They'll just start using 8 proxies.

It isn't all rich morons, look at SeaOrg, look at Lisa McPherson, look at Operation Whiteout.   Scientology is not innocent, it's a dangerous cult that needs to be eradicated.

There is a right time and a wrong time to pull a stunt like this.  While it most certainly had to be done, now wasn't the time.

The unfortunate reality of it is, whether or not it causes an incident, it's going to have repercussions. I would be quite surprised if we don't see new legislation to even further censor or limit internet access once things cool down. THANKS OBANON.


That is going to happen anyways - or at least attempted. See the recent computer "fraud" laws that have been brought up for discussion in Congress.

Snark aside, that most likely is including a large amount of small, outboard motor driven craft.  Not really that impressive on their own, but if you have 20 of them loaded up with explosives and bearing down on one of your destroyers, it only takes one getting through your perimeter to make for a bad day.

Sudlow:

It is always good to irritate paranoid, insecure people that happen to possess relatively large armies and nuclear weapons.

I don't believe they really have nukes, I doubt their "conventional" missiles would work well enough to do much damage, and their army, though the best-fed section of the non-ruling classes, is still a bunch of puny runts with shabby and outdated equipment that's really only good for holding down their own hungry and unarmed people. They couldn't fight off an invasion from Madagascar let alone France.

The only reason South Korea hasn't overran them already is Russia & China woudn't like it -- and the US is afraid of those countries. But NK's historic allies have been getting tired of carrying them for a while and pretty soon might be amenable to a reshuffle. South Korea and China have been getting along pretty well lately and have been making some beautiful money together.

I think IIRC it originated from some of KJI's propaganda that was poorly Engrished out to read "North Korea is Best Korea" and someone thought it hilarious so it became a meme. Not sure if that picture was the picture on the original propaganda or if someone thought it would be lulzy to add a colorful pose with it. Not positive but that's the story as I remember.

Yep.  This was not a good idea.  I suspect it breaks some international law too.

Aside, I think Un is being set up by his advisors.  I think he is being advised that this is what his father and grandfather did to make their mark in the world community.  I think an internal coup has been planned to really make this guy look out of control.  At some point in time Kim Jong-Un will be arrested or killed. His highest trusted people can see how the South Koreans are living in this new world order.  They've got to be jealous and downright pissed off.
I think Un has another week or so of power before he is eliminated from within.

Except NK isn't the meathead.  If anyone is, it's the US, and NK is the scrawny rich kid running his yap about his leet taekwondo skills that would take down the meathead with a single kick.  Pointing and laughing is a perfectly acceptable response in such a situation.

Linkski

Thank you very much.


No problem. There's also some buzz about a sub going undetected in the Gulf of Mexico in August of last year but I think I'm not sure how legit that is. It seems to be spread across a lot of both reputable and less reputable sources. Can't say whether it's confirmation bias or not, but it's worth a look at.

Honestly, it's highly unlikely to cause WWIII. Kim Jong-Un must be aware of all his memes floating around on the internet.

On the other hand, maybe that's his problem. Or part of it.

Carn: Pair-o-Dice: I have a feeling I know what Kim Jung Nutjob is up to. Remember when we turned Japan into a greasy spot on the map? And then we helped them rebuild it bigger and better? Yea, he's up to no good.

I think their control over the country is weakening and they fear the commoners finally revolt.  Having the devil aka the US attack them would be the best possible thing for them to secure power.  But if we ignore them and they continue to build nukes, we'll be screwed then too.


It'll take another 18 months, minimum, before they can have another bomb. His people will have all starved by then.

I would not at all be opposed to tax dollars going to finding and arresting whoever did that. It was incredibly stupid and could cost thousands of lives. Probably not, but still - just a stupid, stupid idea and they'd know that if they followed the news at all. The US government doesn't think anything will happen, but they're still on full alert because it MIGHT. That is reason enough not to poke the insane, starving grizzly bear with a stick.
