Seoul, South Korea (The Adobo Chronicles) – North Korea may have the sophistication to launch a cyber attack on Sony Pictures, but advisers to its leader Kim Jong-un lack the knowledge about geography.
Following the now infamous Sony Pictures hack which led to the cancellation of the Christmas Day release of the film, ‘The Interview,’ President Obama promised to respond “proportionately” to the attack, and that Washington is reviewing whether to put North Korea back on its list of state sponsors of terrorism. (The film is a comedy whose plot revolves around the assassination of the North Korean leader).
In response, North Korea has warned of strikes against the White House, Pentagon and “the whole U.S. mainland, that cesspool of terrorism.” That means Hawaii and Alaska have been spared of the threat.
The National Defense Commission, led by Kim, warned that its 1.2 million-member army is ready to use all types of warfare against the U.S.
Apparently, Kim’s close advisers didn’t know or failed to tell him that the “U.S. Mainland” does not include the 49th and 50th states of the United States.
So Americans living in Hawaii and Alaska can relax and not worry about any potential attack on their states from North Korea.
