Obama signed an executive order authorizing the sanctions that will target top state officials and defense-related organizations. "The order is not targeted at the people of North Korea, but rather is aimed at the government of North Korea and its activities that threaten the United States and others," Obama wrote to a letter to House and Senate leaders.

What do you make of this? We don't truly know who's behind the cyber attacks but then again the government probably has more information that they haven't released to the public. This could possibly be a dangerous game we're playing.

Have the US still kept sanctions on NK from long time ago? Or they want to make it officially now.

I think it's just political fluff to cover the government's butt. The US government reacted too quickly before it truly uncovered the truth. Several tech experts already debunked that their claims against NK were false, and when it all came out, now they are searching another way to put political pressure on NK.

At this point, it's a lot of he said/she said activity. Someone is bound to have foot-in-mouth syndrome sooner or later.

Some say the attacks came from NK, others say Russia, others say they don't know.

Just go see The Interview and be happy folks.

The US already had sanctions placed on NK, now they're adding on more.

I think they're just demonstrating there power to the world, one nuke on us and 10 on them.

It's a bit out of hand but you gotta do what you gotta do, especially with psychotic world leaders.

I'd like your source on that, also it's not confirmed if it's North korea. Another theory is that it was an insider job, the mainstream media have just outplayed it as if it was North korea due to them knowing it would bring in more clicks especially when they attatch a big name like sony.

Here's my source http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/sony-hack-new-evidence-points-760586
