@ScanIAm: All true. I have to backtrack a little bit on my own statement above. I questioned the validity of the tie to NK from the beginning. The main stream media reporting the FBI links NK to the attack is what brought me around to what I said above. Gut reaction, because I usually question government as well. At this point, I find it likely NK is responsible, but I don't have proof, and I'm reluctant to accept reports, even from our government, without evidence.
If it wasn't NK or some other state government it's still an act of terrorism... and deserves extreme response. There's no way to label it as an act of war, however, if it's not state sponsored. So, that was hyperbole on my part.
I guess the main reason I reacted so quickly and passionately to the OP was @JohnAskew labeling it a "cultural attack". I could give a flip about that. This was far more than a cultural attack, or even "just" an attack on a corporation. Serious damage has been done to all of the employees and to many people who have just had some sort of contact with Sony. This was a terrorist attack and not just an attack on our culture.
