I see the Committee For Perpetual Rage Against America is hard at work again, and one of its prominent spokesmen has released a statement. Let's take a look at it.
Yes, freedom of speech and all that, but free speech is not free from consequences. Expecting the North Koreans not to react, expecting it not to affect the US-DPRK relationship is naive at best.
So you're suggesting that North Korea doesn't like to get treated the same way it treats others?
North Korea blows up White House in propaganda video - Mar 19, 2013
The Chinese do have a point here.
The Chinese? The same People's Republic of China that is actively trying to steal land, sea, and resources from its neighbors while the US is helping China's neighbors defend themselves? Those neighbors might have a different opinion.
First the US attacks other countries with cyber weapons like Struxnet ...
You mean Iran's illicit nuclear weapons program? So you prefer a shooting war then, with nuclear weapons?
Then it gets in a huff when others attack its movie industry, and tries to take the moral high ground.
You're comparing a comedy movie to nuclear weapons? Do we all need to fear the coming HarHarmageddon? You don't think that is a little unhinged, do you?
They also have a point about insulting the leaders of other countries.
We've already seen that North Korea long ago showed propaganda featuring the destruction of the White House with the implication of killing the US President. Will you now turn your complaints against North Korea? I suspect not, your perpetual grievance is with the US, you only need the cause of the moment.
Considering the delicate nature of the relationship between North Korea and the US making this kind of film doesn't seem like a very smart move.
North Korea considers itself at war with much of the rest of the world, and technically they are right. But even given that, and the previously demonstrated North Korean propaganda, are you claiming that the North Koreans are dumb too with that statement? Do you think that might be risky?
