DPR Korea, USA and The World: Part II

Many in the South, too, had also attempted to go to north. However, none of them had succeeded to go, though they’d tried hard. Of course, needless to say, it was due to Lee Myongbak regime’s obnoxiously confrontational anti-north policy. At the moment, the disapproval rate for Lee is now “close to 80%” of South Korean population. After 4 years of continued failures, miseries and despair among many Koreans in all walks of life, he has become “the most hated, despised or disapproved” figure not only by a great majority number of people in the South but also in the North and in many overseas Korean communities around the globe as well. Two widows of former President Kim Dae Jung and former Hyungdai-Asan Corp CEO Chung Mong Hun, however, were the only exceptions. But, in fact like all others in the South, they were also not allowed to attend at Kim’s funeral but to pay a simple tribute only to the deceased Kim on the 26th of December and return back to Seoul immediately afterward. What that meant was they were allowed to stay in Pyongyang for about a half day only, not even a full day. Many argue therefore the only exception for two widows’ less than a full day trip to north through Panmunjom at the 38th Parallel was a “political cover-up of Lee’s typical dirty politics with full of lies as his despicable trademark.”

DPR Korea, USA and The World: Part I

Kim Jong Il had repeatedly nullified America’s superior military power first and foremost! It’s still (and will be for a while!) heatedly debatable if Kim Jong Il will and should be remembered as one of the most important leaders both nationally and globally, particularly with regard to the world’s anti-imperialist, self-determination and independence struggles. However, this could-be controversial statement can be undisputedly substantiated by his strategically bold, precise and wise leadership which had repeatedly nullified the nonstop US military aggressions first and foremost. Without any doubts, it’s now a globally-recognized fact that he’d successfully and brilliantly defended his nation from the undisputedly and unprecedentedly most powerful Global Empire’s nonstop military threats and war attempts. However, it’s a well-known and well-documented fact for over 60 years that US has also never given up to invade, destroy and occupy the north as they’ve successfully done it in the south since September 1945.

The Global Deception with Multiple “Manufactured Crises”

[Editorial]    Including the most recent so-called US “Debt Ceiling” crisis, now the infamous “Global Vareity (Obama-Bohner) Show (of deception)”; also at this very moment the so-called Assad “government’s civilian massacre” crisis in Syria as another “Global…
