The Empire Strikes Back

Days after US President Barack Obama promises that the US will take "proportionate response" against North Korea for the hack on Sony Pictures, North Korea's Internet went dark for several hours yesterday.

Of course much like North Korea refusal to take credit for the hack on Sony, the US is refusing to say they are responsible for taking down North Korea’s internet but if you add one and one, you’ll get two. Still, I must say the American’s idea of "proportionate response" must be different from everyone else’s.

North Korea hacked a movie studio and in return, the US…takes down their internet? I’m no fan of North Korea but that’s their idea of "proportionate response"? I guess that’s what you get when you mess with the most powerful nation in the world.
