I haven't seen these linked by anyone yet... Stern gets ridiculed by a major New York Newspaper for having the gall to compare the Sony Hack to 9-11, then by a crazy coincidence, within hours, the hackers decide to send out a new message threatening violence at the movie theaters and bringing up 9-11 in warning of these new attacks. The timing is super suspicious. If you are thinking about the course of events through North Korea's eyes.... This hack job is their biggest accomplishment in a loooooong while. They have finally found a way to have revenge on the US. I am sure the countries leaders are reading all the press this accomplishment has brought. But then there is a major newspaper that goes against the grain and claims the hack job is minor- and says it pales to comparison in what middle eastern terrorists were able to do with 911. This was undoubtedly read by North Korea- and probably came across as insulting. North Korea doesn't want to be a mere annoyance, they want to strike fears in the heart of anyone thinking of mocking north korea. So they read the Daily news and think- wow, we need to up the ante.... this isn't just some stunt. The message is to not cross North Korea..... So they make it clear to point out that violence is coming- and use 9-11 in the threat. North Korea WANTS to be viewed as Al Quida-like terrorists capable of big harm, just like Stern was suggesting. And it was this threat that A) made it clear NK was behind the hack, and 2) got the movie dumped because people finally got scared when they saw a potential 9-11 threat. In a way- Howard Stern was the catalyst to the last 24 hours of North Korea Shenanigans. He lit a path for the North Koreans to follow in order to arrive at their goal. I guess Howard Stern is still more relevant than any of us would have guessed!
