    Well, honestly, how much more can NK be sanctioned? And it's not like Sony will pull their product from the shelves in NK - most people there don't have electricity or internet anyway.

    I see that North Korea has requested a joint investigation of the hack by both NK and USA intelligence.
    They have also denied being responsible for the attack. Perhaps the hackers are good enough to leave
    a false Internet trail with phantom relays occupying cloud space. To do a movie about assassinating a
    living world leader is in extremely poor taste, excepting it is a comedy, but I have always been curious
    about how much US Gov't monies are funneled into Corporate Big Media (movies) projects to present
    imagery that supports the Gov'ts chosen objectives/propaganda/nationalism. There exists a whole slew
    of ignoramuses that think Rambo movies are a history of the Vietnam War. The mythical existence of
    POW/MIAs in Vietnam became a National mantra because of the movies, not reality. Anyway, if it
    was a movie to demonize Kim Jong Un to influence a National mindset, good it's stopped. If it was a
    serious comedy, it will do a proverbial Phoenix and rise from the ashes of obscurity. Maybe Kim was
    pissed that he didn't get invited to do a cameo in the movie. After all, it is common knowlege that he
    fancies himself a good actor and a handsome profile. On the other hand, if Kim states, "I was really
    looking forward to seeing the movie," he'll pop the gasbag that keeps it airborne, or not.

    Wow, you will believe anything.

    Yes, but not because of terrorism.

    I voted no, but I interpreted that option as meaning our society, not our government.

    I believe it does reflect bad on us as a society. I generally wasn't very receptive to the "well then the terrorists have won" after 9/11 whenever we did something in response, but in this case I do think they won when Sony capitulated.
    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.

    That's actually a pretty good idea.
