    The word I heard from reliable sources is that NK wakes up everyday fearing an attack from the US. They will be ready to counter attack.

    ask SK if they fear an attack from the North.

    As if the US is not capable of annihilating his capability overnight.

    ask SK if they fear an attack from the North.
    After a US preemptive, there'd be nothing left for the North to attack with.

    What U.S. entity has been attacked? Don't get the term "cyber attack" too twisted.

    Sony Pictures' computers were hacked - infiltrated. No virus has reportedly been downloaded into their network. The ONLY entity that's been harmed is Sony Pictures and they've done more economic damage to themselves than NorKor's threat of violence because THEY, not NorKor, pulled a potentially profitable movie out of theaters.

    Yes, there was a risk to public safety from a foreign government and to that our government (CIA, FBI, DHS) has a responsibility to atleast attempt to validate/confirm the origin of the threat and assess the threat level (that is, determine how credible the threat is and if and when it can be carried out), but Sony stepped on their own sword here which was their choice as private company.

    Unless and until NorKor actually carries out its threat, the only responsibility the U.S. government has here is to assess the potential threat on U.S. soil and nothing more. And the only reason it needs to do that is because of the potential widespread threat to public safety (i.e., multiple movie theaters).

    Second off the North Korea has always made threats, not just under Obama as POTUS.

    Typical answer by you. Instead of forming a coherent response you go straight for the typical insult..

    I disagree, Seoul, and the suburbs in particular would experience hundreds of thousands of dead, maybe millions.

    There are 100K pieces of artillery aimed BEHIND seoul, so they can cut off the escape before they kill 10 million people. Its intended to cause that many casualties, and its close enough that nukes wont wipe them out.

    You can NOT disregard them because they are backwoods, so are Al Qaida. NK sneaks into taiwan as a right of passage, they are not to be underestimated, especially after decades of indoctrination.
