North Korea sanctions are useless

It seems to me that in declaring sanctions on North Korea, the United States has passed judgment without proof and is using the might of the country to intercede into a business issue. Those who might have been involved with hacking Sony will suffer little, if at all, just as the powerful of those nations wherever sanctions have been imposed in the past. Only the powerless people of the sanctioned nation suffer.

We imposed sanctions on Iraq and hurt the people, not the powerful. When sanctions failed, we invaded. The elite of Korea will not suffer, only the people. All this for a movie studio?
