Diplomats Do Nothing, Guns Speak Up

The most recent dramatic escalation of military and political tensions on the Korean peninsula in August 2015 can be viewed from various perspectives, but what stands out is the fact that despite Seoul’s continual declarations of their desire to build trust between the North and the South, not only economic cooperation, but even meaningful dialog has ground to an almost complete halt...

Nuclear Tensions on Korean Peninsula and US Doublethink

In an exclusive interview with the Interfax news agency on July 29, the North Korean ambassador to Moscow, Kim Hyun Joon, stated that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was prepared to shore up its nuclear potential in response to US actions, the purpose of which, the ambassador emphasized, «is to overthrow the existing regime and bring about a change in the current leadership of the DPRK»...

Can North Korea’s Nuclear Problem Be Solved?

Is there a hope for restarting the stalled six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear program? This question is more frequently asked by experts at international conferences, including the Northeast Asia Peace and Security Mechanism event held this May in northwestern city of Yanji, the seat of the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in eastern Jilin province, People's Republic of China...

Korean Peninsula: Choice between Peace and Escalation

Normally tensions run high in the Korean Peninsula when US starts annual joint military exercises with South Korea. Then the time comes for attempts to find diplomatic solutions. This is the usual pattern. It was different this year...

USA, North Korea and Hollywood (II)

For North Korea the 2014 was a year of growing tensions, as well as the time of continuous economic growth that the country reached even being under international sanctions. It was also the year when military and political leadership consolidated the ranks thanks to the efforts of young Kim Jong-un. In 2014 a three-year mourningperiod for the lateleader Kim Jong Il, the father of Kim Jong-un, ended. It was also the time of increasing cooperation with friendly states, first of all Russia and China. Perhaps all these things will make the regime’s opponents realize that the hopes for the regime change in North Korea are groundless. Perhaps it will help to revive a substantive dialogue on the problems of the Korean Peninsula.

USA, North Korea and Hollywood (I)

2014 was another year of lasting conflict between the Unites States and North Korea. ... North Korean political culture has specific features – the national leader is treated with utmost respect as the man who enjoys a special status in the government political structure. The moral values advocated by Confucius presuppose that the supreme leader is the father of the nation and the representative of Heaven among other things. Those who are acquainted with the North Korean cultural and historic traditions are not surprised when an insult is met with a tough response. No doubt, the US is aware of the fact.

US Thought-Control Goes into Loop over Sony Hollywood Hack

...A crime story at Sony carried out by hackers for extortion or just kicks is transformed into a major national security threat posed by North Korea purely on the basis of innuendo and baseless assertion. Is that not the most audacious manifestation of thought-control and manufacturing of perception? Obama and his ilk in Washington and the American mainstream media are so deluded with their own self-righteous sense of freedom and «exceptionalism». Thought-control is exactly what America is about, as is all too plain to see from the hysteria over the Sony hack and the demonisation of North Korea...

Pre-Emptive U.S. Cyber-Attack on North Korea Will Have Far-Reaching Consequences

When it comes to brandishing America’s war arsenal, whether it is traditional arms or cyber-weaponry, the Barack Obama is no different than its war-prone predecessor, George W. Bush. Even Obama’s rhetorical flourishes match those of Bush. Responding to North Korea’s alleged hacking of Sony Pictures’ computer network over the planned Christmas Day release of a cheesy comedy called «The Interview», in which a tank shell kills North Korean leader Kim Jong Un... There is every indication that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, as well as the U.S. State Department, working in concert with Sony Pictures’ executives, produced «The Interview» as a «soft power» operation to undermine the North Korean government... Just as American economic sanctions against Russia triggered a European and worldwide financial crisis, Washington’s pre-emptive cyber-attack on North Korea will have far-reaching consequences. The Obama administration, like its predecessor, has shown the world that America cannot be trusted with its favorite «toys of war».

A North Korean Trio’s Quick Spurt down South

...Until Washington turns away from a paradigm based on regime change in the DPRK as soon as possible and at any cost, the door leading toward an improved relationship between the two Koreas will quickly begin to close.  And yet it is the Koreans themselves who will have the last word in determining the fate of their divided people...

Korean Unification: A Fleeting Opportunity

The governments of North and South Korea continue to repeat the mantra that they are committed to the idea of unifying their divided people. But as years go by, the tension between Seoul and Pyongyang continues, and there is no progress toward achieving that objective. According to public opinion polls, most South Koreans under the age of 40 are not interested in the unification of the peninsula. Although there is no public discussion, this critically important sector of the South Korean society is against any such plans. Decades have passed since the country was partitioned. The number of families separated by the demilitarized zone (DMZ) has dwindled and emotions have cooled. Many young people in the South increasingly see North Korea as a foreign country...

Formula for Austerity and War

The formula for international hedge fund multi-billionaire George Soros and his ilk is a familiar one. Nation-states see their economies bled dry through usurious interest rates required to pay off international debts crafted by the global banker class. Indebted nations are then forced to sell off public assets and renege on social safety net promises...
