Operative TexasAggie (who is obviously some sort of Longhorns fan with a perverse sense of destiny and ritualized self-humiliation), asks an interesting but easily answered question:
|So far what I’ve read about the Sony hacks from all my favorite internet commentators is spot on, but no one seems to mention that if it turns out the North Koreans are behind the hack, them that constitutes an attack on our nation by another nation. Whether or not fatalities or physical damage occurred, it was an assault on private citizens and a gross theft of their property by a foreign entity and rises to that level of importance. But what have we done or will we do about it?
Nada is correcto. And readers, there is nothing to wonder about or argue in this case.
When armed Libyan citizens attacked the Benghazi compound, which was American soil, and murdered the ambassador, that was an overt act of war. The President did nothing.
Given the Sony hack was much less catastrophic in terms of lives lost, the President will again do nothing. Since he blamed the compound attack on a YouTube video, perhaps he will blame the Sony hack on the popularity of Korean barbecue places.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
