North Korea Threatens to Blow Up the White House
Ashley Allen / 8 years ago
In a totally reasonable and not at all childish reaction to a comedy movie, North Korea has threatened to bomb the White House in retaliation for the release of the Seth Rogen film The Interview.
After the Sony Pictures hack last month, the group claiming responsibility threatened Sony not to release The Interview – a comedy about two journalists attempting to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – else they would release confidential information gathered from the hack, and even attack any cinema that dared screen the film.
After initial reticence, Sony did release the movie over Christmas, both online and to a limited cinema run, and North Korea is not happy. In a statement published by state-run Korean Central News Agency, North Korea’s Policy Department of the National Defence Commission said:
“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has already launched the toughest counteraction. Nothing is more serious miscalculation than guessing that just a single movie production company is the target of this counteraction. Our target is all the citadels of the U.S. imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Koreans.
The army and people of the DPRK are fully ready to stand in confrontation with the U.S. in all war spaces including cyber warfare space to blow up those citadels.
Our toughest counteraction will be boldly taken against the White House, the Pentagon and the whole U.S. mainland, the cesspool of terrorism, by far surpassing the “symmetric counteraction” declared by Obama.
The U.S. should reflect on its evil doings that put itself in such a trouble, apologize to the Koreans and other people of the world and should not dare pull up others. “
So, unless the US government apologises for a movie it had no hand in producing, North Korea will blow up the White House, presumably with its nefarious moon-mounted space laser. Sounds fair.
