Re: Sony Pictures Scraps Dec. 25 Release of 'The Interview

I don't see it as just Sony's problem. If North Korea in fact did this, then an American media company was just censored by a dictator on the other side of the world.

That's kinda a big deal. Especially since it appears to have been successful. Now, North Korea is threatening the US if we don't just allow them to investigate and tell us what happened. North Korea is belligerent, and unstable, I don't think we can afford to just say North Korea is Sony's problem.

Would it make sense, China uses NK as a catalyst to cut ties with the U.S?

I think China is very rich. But cutting ties would surely hurt their economy. We're by far their largest account, and their cash cow.

I'm not sure what they get out of cutting ties.

Culturally we are pigs in their eyes, and economically and socially we are diminishing, and or unstable.

They could be seeing a future with us more of a disaster, than an asset.

Maybe. But I think much of the world is aware of their undervalued currency, and a counterfeit economy. I read recently that they may experience a credit bubble, and are even more at risk of economic troubles than we are.

They only recently have had eyes watching their secretive economic institutions. I don't think the world believes enough in China to back them challenging the dollar.

But I'm no expert on what the Chinese want. According to them they want to peacefully coexist as a world power. But they are stealing technology and building war machines with it. So maybe they see themselves as taking our place after the East destroys our economy, or we're defeated in battle.

Sony censored it, not North Korea
The president even called them out on it.

Maybe some day, but right now with a 30 billion dollar MONTHLY trading deficit it's in their interest to pretend they like us, or at least make the public here think they like us.

Tiananmen would probably happen tomorrow is the situation arose again IMHO.......
