No Shouts of Joy from Kim Jong-Un

On April 28, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told the U.N. that North Korea “must dismantle its nuclear missile programs” before the US “can even consider talks.”*

Sounds reasonable.

Why hasn’t the Kim Jong-Un regime responded with open arms and shouts of joy for this generous and fair-minded proposal from Uncle Sam?

 

One probably has to catch Kim on a good day. Here he is visiting North Korea’s new bread-roll auto-fac and evidently he’s enjoying himself. Presumably, he’s also feeling reasonable.

 

Maybe it is because North Korea not only has first-hand knowledge of US “diplomacy,” but it can point to the grisly consequences that happen to regimes that do not have nuclear capabilities when they fall out of favor with Washington’s  war mongers.  Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria are just some recent examples.

Nor does North Korea have to look around the globe for what the US does to nations without nuclear arsenals, but can recall events which took place not so far away.

For more than a decade, America mercilessly pulverized the little, defenseless country of Vietnam.  Despite the destruction and mass murder inflicted, it was to no avail, except of course to line the pockets of arms manufactures while American citizens were drained of their wealth and blood.

Or simply, Kim Jong-Un can look at his nation’s own history and see how the US treated it prior to it becoming nuclear.  In the “police action” of 1950-53, American coalition forces killed over 3 million North Koreans and dropped more bombs on the country than were used on Japan in World War II according to international war crimes lawyer Christopher Black.**

 

Riddle-me, Riddle-me, Riddle-me-ree. I see something you don’t see!” When Kim looks at things, he does so properly, using the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Readers may want to inspect the means at the disposal of his feared hacker brigade. Or the might of his navy. One look and you’re going to cower under your desk trembling in fear and suddenly remember prayers you thought you had long forgotten. Obviously these guys need to be bombed to smithereens before they can build a second rowboat.

 

Diplomatic Agreement Trust Deficiencies

And, why would North Korea or, for that matter, anyone else have any faith in diplomatic agreements with the US which consistently violates terms of international accords and often complains afterwards when agreements are reached.  The latest example is President Trump carping that Iran is not living up to the “spirit” of the nuclear deal concluded under the Obummer Administration and signed off on by six major world powers.

North Korea, as well as the rest of the world, which is not bribed or threatened by the US Deep State, is certainly aware that the two American-Iraqi Wars had their origins due to American duplicity.  While it originally gave Saddam Hussein permission to intervene in Kuwait, the US then reneged blaming the Iraqi strongman which thus laid the groundwork for his murder and the country’s destruction.

Not only can North Korea look to the murderous and duplicitous US foreign policy record, but it can point to how the American state has killed its own citizens from its involvement in the take down of the World Trade Center, to the gassing and slaughter of men, women and children at Waco, Texas.  Moreover, the federal government and now local authorities are terrorizing their citizens with increasing regularity via a number of false flag events and drills.

By all means, the Kim Jong-Un regime should come to its senses and acquiesce to US demands.

 

The view from the third world tinpot dictator perch.

 

What Might Lead to the Abandonment of Military Adventurism?

Unfortunately, because it is an authoritarian society based on the immoral and economically unworkable system of communism, North Korea is unable to make an ethical case against the hypocrisy of the US which accuses Syria and others of human rights violations, yet has allowed the slaughter of innocent babies of some 40 million since the legalization of abortion in 1973.  Moreover, in another societal-wrecking and depraved act, the US Supreme Court has sanctioned sodomy, one of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.

While no single entity can militarily challenge US hegemony, a reversal of the murderous ways of American foreign policy will only come about through a change in ideology on the home front.  Once the justification for empire is debunked in the court of public opinion, the mobilization of anti-war/anti-empire movement can commence.

After generations have been inculcated by the media, public schools, colleges/universities and the government about the glories of the US military, it is unlikely that there will be any paradigm shift in American foreign policy matters anytime soon.  Only an economic collapse or severe enough financial panic will force the US to pull back on its overseas adventurism.

In the meantime, if Kim Jong-Un intends to survive and keep his country from resembling Iraq or Syria, he should maintain his “unreasonable” stance when the likes of Rex Tillerson demand that North Korea disarm.

 

North Korea’s pride and joy: a missile that tends to explode as soon as it gets about five feet off the ground. Don’t knock it though… it looks good, so it’s still quite useful for parades.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.

  • Hans:

    How else would a nation with the same size GNP
    as Grand Fargo, North Dakota, receive such attention?

    The Great Leader, Kim Jong-Un, should receive a Nobell
    prize for marketing.

  • JohnnyZ:

    While the perspective presented is bold as compared to the MSM propaganda line (e.g. US involvement in false flag, incl. against its own citizens and waging illegal wars on false pretexts), I am starting to doubt that this is the full truth.

    For example, check the (very important) interview of ex elite financier Ronald Bernard on YT. There he says that politicians, bankers, secret services and “terrorist organizations” all belong to the elite and work together as part of a criminal system. Also the elites pretend to be enemies, but cooperate on a higher level – he gives examples of Iraqi oil exports during the embargo with their USD cash being processed in the West. Another example is Putin as an enemy of the West, while Putin is a member of the same masonic and jewish organizations (e.g. Chabad Lubavich) that interlink all politicians globally, so there are no truly independent sovereign states. The likes of Saddam, Assad, or Gaddafi are probably controlled opposition as well and there are doubts whether Saddam and Gaddafi were truly murdered or whether those were doppelgangers / hoaxes. This is another angle to explain Kim’s being “unreasonable” – it is all for show and it is scripted in advance (also check “The best enemy money can buy”). There are also doubts whether nukes really exist or are as efficient as advertised. The general list of fakes and hoaxes is very long…
