    You are right, it does not seem like that most of the time.

    Well that's because you don't know a lot about North korea, you only posted this thread to point out how "weak" Obama is, not knowing North Korea threatens the U.S. three times every day before breakfast.

    Re: N. Korea threatens strikes on us amid hacking claims

    Obama said the cyberattack caused a lot of damage to Sony but that the company should not have let itself be intimidated into halting the public release of "The Interview," a lampoon portraying the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    It was the first time the United States had directly accused another country of a cyberattack of such magnitude on American soil and set up a possible new confrontation between longtime foes Washington and Pyongyang. Obama said he wished that Sony had spoken to him first before yanking the movie, suggesting it could set a bad precedent. "I think they made a mistake," he said.

    "We cannot have a society in which some dictator someplace can start imposing censorship here in the United States," he said. "Because if somebody is able to intimidate folks out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what they start doing when they see a documentary that they don't like, or news reports that they don't like.".....snip~

    Some are questioning if what the N. Koreans did.....was an Act of War. Which is making its way around the Hill with the usual cast of characters.

    In another news piece they are saying.....If BO takes his proportional action, then they will do what they are saying here. But they say they can prove it wasn't them and want a joint investigation.

    Go back and read my thread starts-Im well aware of the routine, but this cyber warfare is new, and they are emboldened by our weak leader. They probably see what happened in Cuba as evidence our chump potus will cave.

    "cesspool of terrorism"
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sony made a huge blunder by caving-now anytime they want something they will threaten to blow up an American movie theater. Its an act of war, either on us or Japan.

    Mornin Jog. Whatever we do they are saying it is limited.

    OBAMA'S OPTIONS

    Despite Obama's stern warning to North Korea, his options for responding to the computer attack by the impoverished state appeared limited. The president declined to be specific about any actions under consideration. North Korea has been subject to U.S. sanctions for more than 50 years, but they have had little effect on its human rights policies or its development of nuclear weapons. It has become expert in hiding its often criminal money-raising activities, largely avoiding traditional banks.

    U.S. experts say Obama's options could include cyber retaliation, financial sanctions, criminal indictments against individuals implicated in the attack or even a boost in U.S. military support to South Korea. It could also take the largely symbolic step of restoring North Korea to its list of countries designated as sponsors of terrorism, which carries automatic restrictions.....snip~
