Washington's REAL Motives in North Korea and Afghanistan - Psychology, Geopolitics & Rare Earth Metals. If bombs start falling in North Korea, and if Kim Jong-Un is foolish enough to retaliate, it won’t be hard to convince the American public that war was unavoidable, and that the president should be given broad leeway to do “what needs to be done”.
After all Kim Jong Un is crazy. He’s an evil buffoon with delusions of grandeur (he’s not about to be out-done by Mr. Trump). Mr. Trump has threatened preemptive strikes if North Korea tests a weapon and now he’s warning that a “major, major conflict” is on the table. In Geopolitics, and especially when dealing with countries that you are technically still at war with, credible threats, combined with shows of force are irresponsible provocations, that can easily spin out of control. Both sides are off the rails, which isn’t all that surprising if you really think about it. They’re both thin skinned, manicured, bullies, who mask their insecurities with pretense and bluster; tiny minds who make themselves feel bigger by putting others down.
Why Do North Koreans Hate Us? One Reason — They Remember the Korean War. “Why do they hate us?”
It’s a question that has bewildered Americans again and again in the wake of 9/11, in reference to the Arab and Muslim worlds. These days, however, it’s a question increasingly asked about the reclusive North Koreans. Untitled. There is a great deal of propaganda and deliberate misinformation about North Korea, which the public should know.
While neocons, a cheering corporate media, and Deep State, rush to war with North Korea, information is the ultimate weapon. For example, did you know that North Korea, China, and India, are the only three nations who have committed to a “no nuclear first” policy? Untitled. Paul Atwood, a Senior Lecturer in American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston, provides a concise summary of the history that informs North Korea’s “relations with the United States” and “drives its determination never to submit to any American diktat”.
Excerpts from Atwood’s summary are here used as a framework, with other sources where indicated. Atwood notes it is an American “myth” that the “North Korean Army suddenly attacked without warning, overwhelming surprised ROK defenders.” In fact, the North/South border “had been progressively militarized and there had been numerous cross border incursions by both sides going back to 1949.” North Korean Sinking Of US Cargo Ship SS El Faro Prompts Russia-China Deployments.

Non-DPRK Hackers, or Another Scandal in the Korean Intelligence Service. Some time ago, the author of this article and some of his colleagues, including foreign ones, began receiving strange letters, with attachments representing rather clumsy attempts to hack mailboxes or to access computer files.
Some of these colleagues, who had no particular sympathy for North Korea, assumed Pyongyang had a hand in this, but a big scandal unfolding today in Seoul indicates that these hacking attempts most likely came from a completely different side of the 38th parallel. The Korean intelligence service was again at the center of the scandal, and again we are talking about its Internet activities. Only this time, its staff did not take part in political battles under false names but tried to gain access to the personal data of thousands of citizens using spyware. North Korea was NOT behind the Sony hack according to multiple security experts.
Strange thing that happened in the heart of the U.S., the ill-famed cesspool of injustice, is now afloat in the world as shocking news.
The Sony Pictures Entertainment, the biggest movie producer in the U.S., which produced the undesirable reactionary film "The Interview" daring hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and agitating even terrorism and had a plan to distribute it, was exposed to surprisingly sophisticated, destructive and threatening cyber warfare and has been thrown into a bottomless quagmire after suffering property losses worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
The public in the U.S. is now describing this case as "disgrace suffered by Sony Pictures Entertainment," "very sorry thing caused by the U.S. ," "Sony Pictures Entertainment showing a white flag before hackers" and the "unprecedented disaster suffered by the U.S. " A Lot of Smart People Think North Korea Didn't Hack Sony. Expand So I don't know about any of the tech or tactical side of this, but I did teach Korean ESL learners for a couple of years, and I agree with the first guy: This doesn't look to me like the English of a Korean ESL speaker.
Specifically:The use of contractions (we've and we'll) is characteristic of someone near-fluent, too sophisticated to be dropping articlesOrdinal date — my students always hated ordinals because they're irregular (24th) The repeated pronouns ("we" and "you" and "us") doesn't seem like how a Korean person would phrase it, because Korean pronouns are freighted with t/v distinction and honorifics that English doesn't capture. For that reason, my students circumlocuted those words when they could because they felt imprecise. It's totally possible that the North Korean version of Korean is different enough than the South Korean that the markers would be different, though.
