>> THEY FUCKING BOMBED US.
No. They destroyed a few planes and some ships. In WWII order of magnitude, that was a slap in the face, not more. Military are there do kill and to be killed, that's their job.
Real "FUCKING BOMBING" in WWII is killing millions of civilians. Japan did it in china, USA did it in japan and germany. etc etc etc.

>> Consider that, since the end of WW2... blablabla

The nature of the nuclear weapon is still to kill many hundred thousand people at once. That did not change. It just became much more efficient at it.
The power of the 1945 bombs was terrifying the world, the power of todays weapons is still terrifying the world.
So yes, it can be compared. The problem just increased 20dB in magnitude. The USA is still the main bad actor.

No. The best Lenovo could do is not collecting money and let new users get infected hardware.
The best Lenovo could do is commit to their customers, and get the PCs cleaned before they are sold.
But this kind of thinking is not really in the direction of typical chinese manufacturers, who simply ship the darn thing, whatever the defects. Japanese manufacturers are more commited to their users, when they admit the fault ( which does not always happen)

>> No point to the story

Yes, there is a point. If Lenovo was concerned with the security of their customers, they would arrange with their distributors to either remove the malware or recall the hardware.
Continuing to sell it with malware shows they don't care about their customers.
And yes it costs money. That's the cost of deliberately distributing malware.
