@Lapun - See "too big to fail", and the extensive use of said phrase in 2k8/2k9. However I agree with the intent of your comment.
@FTB - "Can't believe a word that comes out the
USA's any government's intelligence community." FTFY
I fail to see *any* benefit to North Korea in hacking the crap out of Sony and making them look bad when Sony has an utter piece of complete and total shit movie coming out that mocks the dear leader. Furthermore the "evidence" provided indicates that the hack of Sony had been ongoing for quite some time - SO:
a) either NK is not nor has it in any way had any involvement in the "Sony Hack" and anonymous individuals with real or imagined issues against Sony did this and its all a smoke screen because *no one* in a law enforcement position has any real concrete evidence of who dunnit.
b) GWB's "Axis of evil" is being hauled out again because the connection between ISIS/ISIL/Random Syrian Terrorists and Prince Bandar (house of Saud) and the good old USofA is becoming impossible to ignore, and North Korea is a handy member of said Axis that is *not* trying to get on the USA "good books"
c) "intelligence" agencies around the G12 have finally pointed out that sifting through the amount of crap that is social media, email, vpns, tor, etc etc etc has gotten to the point that there is *just too much* to track, and they need EITHER
A crapton more money to run this mess, and a WHOLE lot more money to be able to hire, lock in a hermetically sealed control centre all the SME's needed to actually do this (leaving hearth and home, and disconnecting from the world for the rest of your life makes these folk pretty expensive)
Tons of new regulations that will require every individual around the world to have ONE and ONLY ONE id on the internets, and all actions will be through a government sponsored proxy so they can filter the ideas that get through to the people back to the limited crap they had access to in the 50s.
d) everything that leaked is bollocks, Sony posted it themselves, and this is all a huge advertising campaign to get enough money out of the movie to pay that dolt's salary.
Its *way* too early on a saturday to be up but the launch was worth it.
