    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.
    "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"

    The correct answer is to cite freedom of speech to the half-pint ****wit and leave it at that.

    If he considers it a declaration of war then by all means, let him initiate force against us and see what happens. Freedom of speech is well worth dying for, or killing in order to defend.

    P.S. Is it too much to hope that the president and his administration have realized that we don't have to APOLOGIZE for our freedom of speech?

    Wow, I never knew Seth Rogen is a gangster film maker.

    Rogen must be ecstatic about this free publicity! I wasn't even aware of this movie until now. Now I want to see it.

    Does anyone else think we live in a ****ed up world? Or that the world really is hollow, and we've headed down the rabbit hole? I do. I no longer have any confidence in our government to do the right thing. We run from pillar to post reading gossip and lies on the internet. 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.

    Yes, the US government should stop the film's release. What they then should do is to bankroll Trey Parker and Matt Stone to do a Team America II movie and make Kim Jong On the bad guy this time...

    It's only a movie Kim.

    You are only important in your own country. If we censor the movie, next we'll all be wearing his 1930's haircut.

    I don't like holywood, in fact, I really hate it... but I don't think censorship is the solution.

    No, let NK scream all they want. It's not like they matter. They're just a prick country with a prick leader.

    Red: Yes, because, of course, our film industry is nothing but a government-run propaganda machine. I mean, aren't they all? All over the world? We all follow NK's lead, right? *smh*

    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.
    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.
