Recently, the FBI put out an official statement claiming that North Korea was behind the attacks on Sony Pictures and President Obama has stated that he holds the North Korea responsible and that the United States will retaliate, while considering putting North Korea back on the list of terrorism sponsors. North Korea responded to this by threatening to attack if the U.S. indeed does retaliate.
After these claims, the North Korean Internet went out for about 9 hours on Monday, followed by an outage again on Saturday for about five hours. In response to the outages and to Obama’s claims, an unknown North Korean official stated that “Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest.”
The North Korean National Defense Commission added in a statement: “The United States, with its large physical size and oblivious to the shame of playing hide and seek as children with runny noses would, has begun disrupting the Internet operations of the main media outlets of our republic.” The statement further reads: “Obama had better thrust himself to cleaning up all the evil doings” that the United States has perpetrated against the North.
Of course, North Korea is denying any sort of involvement in the hacking of Sony and blames the U.S. for rushing to conclusions without proper investigation.
This story of Sony, the U.S., and North Korea is clearly getting more tangled every day.
