It's not quite true there are several democratic states whose attempts at setting up exchanges failed miserably such as Oregon which flushed 300 million in tax payer cash down the Obamacare toilet.
One of the problems with defining legal acts of war is that there is a deliberate misrepresentation of the purpose of warfare, Wars are always waged for economic or political reasons so attacks intended to achieve economic or political damage to another country are simply put acts of war. It's true that while it's unlikely that a cyber attack would hurt somebody directly I'd submit that the release of confidential emails has cause injury to the people involved with the emails release. Either careers are damaged or destroyed and people are injured by the content of a private message about them. Not all injuries have blood but some cause just as deep and deadly injuries to those on the receiving end of the release. I would say that the Sony hack qualifies as injury to civilians directed at civilians thus an act of war by the legal definition. I also submit this is an act of economic warfare and should be responded to as such.

You're right Dr. Sowell, however, during the first 50 years of the 20th century there were plenty of riots targeting labor and management. The riots turned out to have a very different result as blood was shed and lives were taken as a result of the attacks. The progressives decided that race might be a better issue allowing for looting with fewer bodies of their own laying on the ground. This isn't to be confused with the civil rights movement which arguably has shed more American blood than any other movement lasting more than a century and costing nearly a millions of American lives both in active combat such as what was seen in the Civil War and later when the so called progressives embarked on eugenics programs such as planned parenthood. The problem here is that the progressives have convinced and deceived low information voters as to their true motives.

Well since it was only hours not days, weeks or permanent. I think this was probably the US since only the libs with their smart phones, tablets and such would think a few hours without internet access was a punishment. If it were China the outage would be at least a week and if it were Sony they wouldn't be back on the internet ever.

Gee, I wonder if those scars are any different from somebody who was injured or lost somebody in the terrorist attacks planned and executed by these foul vermin?
Oops grand theft firearm....felony concealed carry....ooo and the teacher is guilty of receiving stolen property and accessory after the fact. Nice good ad encouraging the commission of at least 4 felonies worth about 10 years in the can for the kid, about the same for the teacher and probably child endangerment for the mom which probably gets her about 4 years depending on the state. Was this ad written by Joe Biden, I'm surprised they shoot a shotgun through an apartment door.
If you're employed by a union then you are in effect leaching off the members of that union and chances are you actions are rarely if ever for the good of the members of that union but they are great for the union and it's employees.
Whatever happened to the principle of not shouting fire in a crowded theater. Isn't what, in essence, these politicians did they went into a volatile situation and incited violence by their words and by their actions. Doesn't that make these guys culpable for the results of their actions?
On the federal level I think this is exactly what Holder and Obama wanted to happen. I thing the NYC Mayor was all gung ho about this too until he realized those same cops that he was painting targets on were the ones protecting him. I think Obama and Holder are trying to force a break down of society so they can step in to build a new one on the ashes and blood of our current society. The problem with that line of thinking is if they start a revolution they would be the targets of that revolutions not it's beneficiaries and the result would most likely be the antithesis of what they want to happen.
