They're not threatening anyone. Their English is bad enough, you need to put some effort into reading the message.
The real message reads more like "We don't know what to do. Sony doesn't feel threatened enough to pay us, now we're clueless how to proceed".
I don't know how good North Korean intelligence is, but I hope they are better than the writers of that message. And even if it's been drawn up to look like it does, what would be the use?
You really must be totally naive to take these reports as "evidence".
It's not as if your department of disinformation hasn't been caught lying numerous times before...
This reporter is going to write about online security, but expects her old Twitter handle that she abandoned not to be available to others? How delightfully naive. She should fit well in a paper that's Christian and scientifically orientated...
At the same time it is arrogant to blame the system for your own ignorance.
Aha! Finally someone who RTFA!
It's hard to tell beforehand if any change will be positive in Africa. Look at the french, who introduced cocoa in Africa years ago. That went very well, until a major price drop occurred and in some regions caused famine because farmers couldn't switch back to other food crops in time.
Besides, GMO has failed big time. Cross pollination has already carried the Roundup resistant genes, f.i. to at least 5 wild species. It's what's killing the cotton belt. These were harmless genes, AFAICT. But there's no telling if mutations in the wild will be harmless.
GMO is not necessarily evil. Look up "Golden Rice". That project had the best of intentions. But if people don't want to eat GMO's, it's end of story. The customer is always right.
And meanwhile, an Australian can't sell for instance a Dutch (Philips) made photomultiplier tube on ebay. I can 't get some FET transistors from TI they told me, because they couldn't really identify me. Strangely enough, the next day the FET's were in the mail...
Oh, well, next time i'll buy Chinese, German, Dutch or Japanese. But not from an American company.
And which country has the most problems with weaponry, by far?
"There are a class or group of people, however you want to define them, that think no matter what the US does, says, hears, thinks, or anything, they are evil."
Yes there are. They are the world's population. Even your allies don't like you. Now, why would that be?
what is "sheperification"?
It is the process of becoming a Microsoft customer...
The findings are laid out in a 238-page report, scheduled for release by Thursday, that represent the first major public statement by the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, which Congress made an independent agency in 2007 and only recently became fully operational.
Defenders of the program have argued that Congress acquiesced to that secret interpretation of the law by twice extending its expiration without changes. But the report rejects that idea as “both unsupported by legal precedent and unacceptable as a matter of democratic accountability.”
The report also scrutinizes in detail a handful of investigations in which the program was used, finding “no instance in which the program directly contributed to the discovery of a previously unknown terrorist plot or the disruption of a terrorist attack.”"
