Everyone gets hacked.

I thought the "The Interview" was just a movie, and not an actual assassination scenario video...

First they let NK hack supposedly their most secure organizations. Then they announce to the world and NK that they got hacked, handing NK a propaganda victory and also letting them know that they know they were hacked and that the info that was stolen will now likely be changed..

Is SK even an ally? Surely such incompetence can only be deliberate

Ally to who?

The US got hacked too. Possibly with the blessing of the Trump junta. Is Trump an ally of the US?

Good question, I'd say no

In dictatorships, the military is allowed to conceal its mistakes in order to maintain the illusion of supremacy.

In democracies, the military is supposed to be subordinate to civilian leadership, and thus must own up when it screws up.

And the left is on a roll once again. Trump is definitely more of an ally than that other dolt that was before him.

Good for South Korea to expose those American Barbarians that always feel they have the right to stick their nose anywhere in the world.

Never allow yourself to be fully subjugated by those yanks, otherwise when their empire reach it's end you will drowned with them too.

Our resident "Roads" scholar calling Obama a "dolt." Haha Brilliant.

Reminds me of how the allies “leaked” the Normandy invasion to the Germans during WWII, a little slide of hand.

SuperLib. Everyone gets hacked.

I got hacked by N.K agent once, when I call him little fatty Halloween Bumpkin.

I hope Kim Jong Un realize the seriousness of this situation. This hacking was done by Russian trained hackers no doubt puts Putin and Xi also on notice that the US will unify Korea on their terms if need be.

The alleged content of the allegedly stolen data contains proposals for striking the leadership first in a struggle with No. Korea. I hasten to add that my mention of not planning to follow Bonhoeffer's path was merely a shouldering of my own burden of flubbed "letter to the editor" about the Berrigan brothers (alleged by the US government to be plotting to blow up the Pentagon in 1971, when many were trying to protest the illegal war in Vietnam). My ideas were so poorly expressed that the NYTimes could interpret the letter as siding with government falsehood against the brothers and so hurting their case (setting them up for the charge of rebellious assassination).

I myself confused Bonhoeffer's theology about "costly grace" (receiving that means it will cost you your life-long service)--which I admired-- with a rather deficient plan to assassinate Hitler in which he had become involved. I had no thought of doing anything similar to the latter. If one opposes violence with violence, one loses half the battle ahead of time by condoning the opponents' method. That would not be Jesus' teaching, if anyone had asked me.

My idea most recently is to reassure North Korea that they and their leaders are relatively safe, so that they can relent their rush for "self-defence" nukes and come to a diplomacy table. Similarly, Pres. Trump needs reassurance that their bombs cannot reach him, lest he restart a bitter Cold War and fill America first with oodles of radioactive waste with a half-life of 90 years or more. There are not enough "Iraqs" and "Afghanistans" left to dump uranium bullets in, for getting "rid" of that waste (although US vets as well "enemies" there must also suffer from that cancer-causing ammo).

Complete with a picture of "girlfriend" and receipt from a tailor/laundry in London.

Stopped right there.

It was leaked on purpose to give the round boy something to think about over his Lobster dinner.

It certainly wasn't. The early Christians were mostly pacifists, it wasn't until people like Constantine and later, Augustine and his so-called "just war" that you saw the church become militant. Which alienated the core faithful. Look what happened to people like the Cathars even later for their beliefs.

I imagine there are pacifist/non-violent movements within the South Korean Christian community. Let's hope their voices are heard. And all pacifist/non-violent voices.

As for the US; it's never been attacked by the DPRK. But the administration behaves like the Romans did over Carthage. Justifying their actions because they claimed Carthage would attack them, eventually.

Madness.

NK needs to show some reliable, provable statements in the hack. Otherwise, it could just be counter intelligence at work again.

I don't know it is hacked data but rumor is Kim's wife is pregnant and Kim's one younger sister is more powerful than Kim.

Trump as usually insinuated He needs en hold nuclear arsenals. At least he is not pushing Japan to arm.

Lucky to Japanese people, Abe is too busy for snap election that he will not cooperate with Trump''s ten times nuclear arsenals demand.
