Obama said he would retaliate, so it's a natural assumption, though for all we know Best Korea broke something while fortifying its defenses against this imminent attack. And while Sony may not have hacked itself, making itself look like an innocent victim of a powerful adversary rather than a negligent fool brought to its knees by teenage pranksters certainly is to its advantage

Does that make death threats that involve planning to be very, very, very, real threats, and deaths threats that result in injuries to be very, very, very, very real threats, and threats that produce a corpse to be very, very, very, very, very real threats? Cause in that case very, very real threats are child's play.

Why is there no similar push in any other field (think firefighter/truckdriver/constrution)

I think it is across the board (of course only when male numbers are "too high"). Female-owned construction companies are preferred for government contracts, and the NYC fire department just eliminated physical performance tests since not enough women could pass. It's probably happening now because the tipping point of unmarried female voters has been reached, from now on they are simply going to vote themselves entitlements. The writers of the Constitution weren't just being jerks when they didn't give women suffrage

Prisons are filled with drug offenders, hard to see what justice has to do with it. It's about the convenience of the state, even in basic cases like murder, innocent people are grabbed so that the case can be closed. And of course if you are considered an enemy of the state it follows no constraints

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
