When will Sony write a letter to apologize for being total pussies?

What should he do, bomb them?

My guess is we're gonna go full Stuxnet on them.

Great idea! Sony does have facilities in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Why not let Japan deal with this, we will deal with Paramount's caving.

Just DDoS them back into the stone age

When not paying golf, he's been busy lately. He's feckless, a micro manager that ignores race relations while imploring black people to kill cops. Anyway, we're in the business of appeasement now.

Deal with it.

Obama reiterated what he said the other day that the US believes NK responsible for the Sony cyberattack and that the US will respond proportionally at a time of his own choosing.

That he's not throwing out hows and whens doesn't mean he's not doing anything, Shiattmitter

Please. He knows it wasn't Best Korea.

I wonder how long they can keep this facade going ...

If we do, they will fire artillery back at Seoul and kill thousands maybe it escalates and they use a nuke and kill millions of our Korean and Japanese allies but at least we won't look weak.

How many presidents stood by and did nothing while NK starved its people to death? And we're supposed to go nuclear over a f*cking stoner movie?

I think Koch Brothers are involved in this.

That should take about five computers and twenty minutes.

Wait a second--he wanted Sony and/or the theaters to ask him before pulling the movie? WTF?

To be fair, they did threaten a 9/11 style attack on American citizens

That would mean something if there was any intel that they were preparing to actually back that up. But there wasn't, so it was just words. NK has threatened to nuke countries before - crazy threats are kind of their thing.

Saying that they are going to kill American citizens is not something that can be ignored. These threats must be taken seriously. The fact that we miss warning signs from twitter posters about how they are gonna shoot up a school is proof enough that every threat must be taken seriously.

No. And WTF is right if that is for your lame troll attempt.

Ultimately, it might be for the better.  Certainly not in the short term, but... that place is... unspeakably wrong.  Seriously, you could find Somali pirates who would say "Well, thank god I don't live THERE."  Is it really a question of if or when?  Sooner or later, something's got to give.

cman: Saying that they are going to kill American citizens is not something that can be ignored.


I'm not saying you ignore it. But you weigh the threats with their ability to carry out those threats, whether there's any intel that there are any plans in the works, and the fact that most of the threats they've made for the past 60 years have been completely empty. You also consider that often times they WANT a reaction out of us. And you consider that we did jack shiat while they've starved their people to death, so it looks a little silly if we decide to throw down over a Seth Rogen movie.
 
2014-12-21 3:46:59 PM  
Ah good.  Use government resources to defend Sony's honour.

Why should just the oil companies get the benefit of government action?

Hack them and replace every file they have with rob Schneider movies.

I suppose Sony could rent a big cargo plane and drop their bombs on them. Got to do something with the leftover DVDs.

While the parent company, Sony, is Japanese, Sony Pictures is American and the movie was made by Americans.  This is on us.

Never mind.

We could send a couple of journalist to interview and assassinate Un, he won't be suspecting that.

Amiright? Plus you can't tell me a bunch of dumbshiat execs aren't doing business at home or in public coffeeshop hotspots on wide open networks. Hardly a security lapse regarding a multinational corporation that isn't even based in the US worth starting an international incident over.

Lets bomb the people that hacked HomeDepot, Staples, Target, and others.

I'd be fine with tossing a few cruise missiles around for the Target thing (I got hit twice by that).

What a coward. Only a pussy writes a strongly worded letter, while a MAN writes a sarcastic headline. A real president would go punch NK in the face, and so would I, but I am busy on the internet. Also I wouldn't want to leave my girlfriend. She lives in Canada, you wouldn't know her

Maybe we could send a comic book character over to kick Un in the balls? I hear Steve Rogers may be available (you know they'll fix his Super Soldier Serum issues sooner or later, as awesome as Sam Wilson is).

Too late. They collapsed like those magic hoses on infomercials and nobody should ever forgive them.

The United States has no problem invading other countries to secure profits for multi-nationals.

The only failure here is Sony not sending enough lobbyists to Washington to convince them.

So subby doesn't want a President, he wants a Dictator.

Oh but it would only be temporary.
