'The Interview' wasn't such a good idea

Mitt Romney, among others, suggested that Sony ought to release "The Interview," an R-rated comedy about an assassination attempt on North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, online for free. The outrage over the hack of Sony's private information and the intimidation campaign that got the release of "The Interview" scuttled for a time led to quite a lot of heated rhetoric, with Newt Gingrich calling the whole incident an "act of war."

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
