I'm not going to Mod up, I am going to expound. The fact that we do not hold the people actually doing harm responsible, but rather go for anyone tangentially related but has deep pockets, in a get rich quick scheme using the legal system as a tool, is what is causing this kind of reaction. The threat of a lawsuit is greater than the threat from actual crime.
And to be honest, the US reaction has been pitiful. Why we put up with NK at all at this point is simply a matter of lack of leadership. However, as long as NK is a pawn of China and acts as their puppet, we cannot do anything to them. Make no mistake, this is China, not NK. But we are too chickenshit, and perhaps more importantly in debt to China, that both NK and China will get away with this shit.
And while I'm tossing blame, Sony itself is to blame for its crappy Security. How the hell does Muti-terabytes of data leave your network, without even a HINT of it. I'm sure that whatever cost savings they were going for when IT budgets came out was well worth it. I hope Sony gets it pants sued off (see first paragraph) by the likes of all the actors, crews and other employees.
What a cluster fuck.
