    We didn't stop Team America. We won't stop this movie either.

    Would North Korea being saying this if somebody else was President?

    This is an honest question, not a jab at Obama.

    Too bad we couldn't stop Battlefield Earth.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yes, of course. Our President doesnt matter in this case. Kim Jong Un is perhaps a bit insane.

Our politicians are discredited as quickly as they appear to be 'contenders'. Congress is having hearings on the most inane things while Rome is burning. The IRS has become the Gestapo. Our Christian Right takes absurdly unChristian stances. The left wants to turn our country into a welfare state. Our government agencies are corrupt and dysfunctional. I could go on and on.

    And now, South Korean threatens WWIII if we release a particular film.

    Some people worry about the debt we're leaving our grandchildren. I say we should be more concerned about their mental health.
    Uh, Maggie, as Rainman said, it's North Korea. We're supposed to be your allies
    As for the rest of your post, I fail to see how the US govt is related to this. It's just North Korea with their masquerading and bluster and there's as much chance that they will censor the film as Obama having a sex change operation.

    Green: I agree completely, but to be fair Muslims will sometimes actually follow through with their threats, so I can understand how some would be concerned in that scenario.

    The Mohamed newspaper cartoonist and the paper that published those images are still around so apparent the Terrorist salad tossers and terrorist butt smoochers are wrong.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Personally, I can't wait to see this movie. To show my support for the film, I will paste in a few of my favorite Kim Jong Un memes.

    North Korea's take on new US movie: "Act of war"
    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korea is warning that the release of a new American comedy about a plot to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un would be an "act of war."



    If the U.S. government doesn't block the movie's release, it will face "stern" and "merciless" retaliation, an unidentified spokesman for North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in state media Wednesday.
    He didn't mention the movie by name but was clearly referring to "The Interview," which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as a producer and talk-show host who land an exclusive interview with the North Korean dictator and are then asked by the CIA to assassinate him.
    The "reckless U.S. provocative insanity" of mobilizing a "gangster filmmaker" to challenge the North's leadership is triggering "a gust of hatred and rage" among North Korean people and soldiers, the spokesman said, in typically heated propaganda language.




    I say Kim Jong-un can go **** himself. But I am sure the same people who believe that we should cave to the demands of Muslim terrorists and not show Mohamed in a cartoon or not make a film that shows islam in a negative ligtht will say we should ban this film that hurts the feelings of a piece if **** dictator.
    I have one word for NK's foreign ministry: Proceed.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
