Why you defend the North Korean dictator?
I do not defend the North Korean regime. I think that the way that the regime treats dissidents is shameful. Many people on the Left want nothing to do with that country. Nevertheless, we need to end our constant warlike posture with this country and make a more peaceful accommodation with them.
I oppose sanctions on them, and I do not think we should be constantly threatening them with war, especially nuclear war. The US is still officially at war with North Korea. North Korea has a right to defend itself against the imperialist aggressor barbarians – the Americans.
This is why I support the North Korean nuclear weapons program. I want them to keep making those nuclear missiles. We have been threatening them with nukes for 60 years now. They have a right to defend themselves. I support the right of the North Korean regime to defend themselves from the US aggressors and the South Korean puppets.
The principal problem in that whole region is the presence of the US. The North Koreans are completely defensive in nature. They see themselves as being attacked by the US and the South Koreans and they are fighting back. They are paranoid of a US and South Korean invasion.
The Pentagon has very detailed plans for the invasion and conquest of North Korea which are updated every year in official documents. The latest plans call for lightning strategic strikes to decapitate the North Korean leadership. The reason we are so upset about their nuclear weapons is because they throw a massive monkey wrench into our ongoing plans for the invasion and conquest of North Korea by armed force.
The latest sanctions on North Korea are insane. They are put on North Korea because North Korea has developed a nuclear weapons program. North Korea is not allowed to do that. Hence the sanctions. The sanctions will stay on until North Korea dismantles its nuclear weapons program and gets rid of all of its nuclear weapons. This is idiocy. We must recognize that North Korea is a already a nuclear weapons state. North Korea is a nuclear state, just like Pakistan and India. We need to accept it and move on. They will not get rid of their nuclear program, and they will never get rid of their nuclear weapons anymore than India or Pakistan will.
North Korea does not want to attack South Korea, conquer it and destroy it. This is the big lie. They are not an aggressive country. Anyway, if the North attacks the South, the North will be destroyed, and they will probably get attacked by nuclear weapons. South Korea in effect has nuclear defenses because we have been supplying them with nuclear defenses for 60 years. North Korea attacks, and they get nuked.
Another big lie is that the North Korean regime deliberately starves its people. This is just not true. The agricultural system collapsed in 1990 when the price of oil went up by 10 times overnight with the fall of the Soviet Union. If the price of gas at the pump suddenly went to $24/gallon what do you think this would do to the US economy?
From 1950-1990, a period of 40 years, the regime had no problems feeding their people. The problem is not the system. The problem is that the oil shock collapsed the entire agricultural and industrial system. The agricultural system had been dependent on machines running fuel and petroleum based fertilizers. They had to completely revamp their agricultural system to a more organic system.
The oil crisis caused an electricity crisis which people tried to solve by cutting down trees for firewood. This denuded a lot of the forested hills around the rural towns and consequently when the rains came, there were serious floods and erosion. It is now an environmental catastrophe. Denuded hills will continue to cause regular flooding which devastates the agricultural sector. You can see where this headed: a long term agricultural crisis. It’s a great big mess.
They never deliberately starved their people ever, and at the moment, no one in the country is starving to death, and most people appear well-fed, even in the rural areas.
We and most of the rest of the world have had sanctions on North Korea for 60 years. North Korea has been locked out of the world economy for 60 years. You wonder why they are so poor. They have literally no one to trade with.
We have been threatening this regime with extreme aggression and threats of invasion, destruction and annihilation for 60 years now. The purpose of this was regime change. Obviously it is not working. There are lousy regimes all over the world. Sometimes you just have to live with them.
As far as the regime itself, that is a matter for the North Koreans to sort out. Plenty of brutal Communist regimes have been taken down with relatively little bloodshed in recent years.
- Declare an armistice with North Korea.
- Remove the sanctions on North Korea.
- Welcome North Korea back into the club of nations and open them up to international trade and even investment.
- Stop the constant threats and war games against North Korea.
- End the official position of the US, which is to take down the regime with armed force and invasion or through sanctions.
- End the Western media war on North Korea which only serves to demonize them and promote a warlike posture towards them.
