Hacked! Sony struggle
The hacking of Sony and the focus of the movie "The Interview" have been the talk of many people around the world. Why is there such a focus on what has been dubbed to be a "Stupid movie"?
Let us look at who has the most to gain, is it The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea or the United States? To answer this we need to first look at the leaders of both sides. Kim Jong Un would only gain bragging rights to be the leader of a nation that hacked Sony. Barack Obama would gain more, he can use the hack to blame DPRK, he can start a cyber war, he can take the focus off the struggles and the downfall of the US etc. So the US has the most to gain.
Now let us look at who is forcing the spotlight on the hacking, the US is continuing to keep it in the media and talking about freedoms, rights, calling Kim Jong Un a dictator, saying they will never bow to terrorism...the usual US government talk. If DPRK were the ones to have hacked Sony, then Kim Jong Un would be bragging about it, using it to gain more power, but they are denying having hacked Sony, instead he has extended a hand of peace out to the US and offered to help them investigate to find out who is really responsible for this act. However, the US refused, Why?
The refusal of the US to work with DPRK must beg the question, "Is the US responsible for hacking?" this is not a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theory, this must be asked.
Again, who has the most to gain, well we determined the US does, and now we hear that the US is refusing to work with DPRK, and merely- without concrete evidence are blaming DPRK. The US says they traced the ISP to North Korea, however, this might not be the case, either they lied or they traced the ISP which can be made to look to have come from any country. Tracing an ISP is never accurate.
If the US were not responsible, and if they wanted to find out the truth then they would accept the help of DPRK to find out the truth.
The only conclusion one can come to as to who is responsible for hacking Sony and why, is that the US government is responsible for hacking Sony and the reason is to make the DPRK and its leader look bad, to increase tensions between the nations and to start a war (possibly cyber war0 between both countries and maybe even stage an attack on US soil to blame DPRK.
It does not make any sense whatsoever for the DPRK to have hacked Sony if they are refusing to take responsibility of doing so.
We have seen many time the US do something or be involved in doing something and then blaming another nation. We have heard the US leaders lie and even falsify documents about other nations. The US is crumbling, they have become hated and no longer trusted by most nations around the world, by performing a hack like this they can once again be in the spotlight and blame a nation they have hated in order to make themselves look strong.
Most people I have spoken to from around the world even in the US believe tat the US government is responsible for hacking Sony.
Let us see how this plays out.
