You obviously don't know the concept on how to make an omelet? It's all cool when a country sends men to die, they do this by knowingly put them in situations where they are under equipped? Or what about when an innocent man gets killed by Police (or some variation), in his own home with nothing to show. Ops, they botched. However, despite the fact that something gets hurt there is always a larger agenda. Sony learned two lessons, they won't be secure and you don't piss off hackers. I'm sure Sony was chosen as a "prime" target, why not. However if you really want companies to take this seriously you HAVE to show them the reality of these situations.
My biggest concern is that if LulzSec can do this with warnings, there is something severely wrong. Even worse is that they got into an FBI data base, announced it early, then still went home like it was nothing.  Personal info is NOTHING compared to the damage they could do and the proper target.
