NOBODY TOLD NORTH KOREA’S KIM JONG-UN THAT HAWAII AND ALASKA WERE PART OF THE U.S.

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.

SONY PICTURES TO UNRELEASE ‘THE INTERVIEW’ DECEMBER 25

imageHollywood, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – It is the most talked about cyber attack. Even the President of the United States weighed in on it.

We’re talking of course about the hacking of Sony Pictures. It has now been confirmed that North Korea was responsible for leaking damning documents from the film company’s top executives, apparently in retaliation for the production of the film, ‘The Interview.’

The flick is a comedy about the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. It was written, directed and produced by Seth Rogen who also is the lead actor, along with James Franco.

Everyone had something to say about the hacking, including movie fans and critics, media pundits, politicians, activists, the cyber community and Hollywood bigwigs like George Clooney.

As a result of this uber controversy, Sony Pictures has just announced that it will unrelease the film on Christmas Day, December 25 from theaters nationwide.
