Most real hackers must be anarchists by nature, not totalitarianism/authoritarianism supporters. As such, anyone this side of Edward Snowden should have little sympathy for grossly overweight dynasty heads, much less suck up to authoritarian/totalitarian regimes. So what if the whole cyberattack had been engineered to inflict maximum damage on both the United States and North Korea? If that is true, then the North Korean demand for a joint UN-sponsored investigation would be a desperate plea from a beleaguered Kim dynasty to absolve itself of an existential accusation. For once, it may be telling the truth.
Reminds me of Saddam Hussein’s truthful claim that Iraq did not have nuclear weapons Program.
