Are you off your ritalin or something?
That's been a pinned topic for some time now.
I don't recall seeing it before this week.
Carter, Reagan, and Bush, etc, they didn't make those decisions. They were hired to execute them.
However they signed off on them. They had the ability to use the veto pen instead but did not do so. Your statement sounds more like an endorsement of voter apathy than anything - why vote for anyone at all?
They sure as hell don't give a shit about your job.
The last election had one candidate who was indifferent towards my job and one who was openly hostile towards it. I had to vote for the one who was indifferent in the hopes of preventing the hostile one from rising to power and putting me on the streets. It was that simple.
Indeed there was no candidate who cared about it or wanted to preserve it. But there was a candidate who plainly wanted to exterminate it.
Where do you think you're going with that statement?
Just placing your assertion in the settling pond with the rest.
Certainly not any assertion of mine from this discussion, nor an accurate take of any assertion I made elsewhere.
The current prevailing theory is that North Korea hired outside hackers for this job. That fits the level of skill shown (less than CIA-level, more than skiddie level), the damage done, and even North Korea's response (had it been homegrown hackers, I'm not sure Kim could have helped but shout it out to the world).
That is a rather difficult hypothesis to support. How do you show that the hackers were hired by North Korea? What would North Korea be able to offer in compensation?
Also, pointing out that an action was illogical in no way proves that it was not North Korea. They have shown time and time again to be a country that makes bad decisions, and acts with little regard for the consequences.
The third generation Kim is not quite the rogue actor his predecessors were. Jong-Un seems to be aware of the fact that his country is under a microscope now and that he can't always just do what he wants. Furthermore he seems aware of the fact that the support they used to enjoy from China is quickly becoming exactly that - support they used to enjoy. While not the most logical guy at the party, Kim Jong-Un seems to have a little more awareness of the world than what we used to see from North Korea.
