The Washington Post reports on North Korean situation today, in what can only be called one of the more obvious statements I've seen as a headline for a story recently. "Our policy toward North Korea isn't working." Really?
A starving population and a government with nukes trying to figure out how to launch them at us, slowling losing reasons to avoid launching them at as, as they 'get away with' more and more 'unacceptable' behavior.
I saw two movies recently, "Red Dawn" and "Olympus Has Fallen." Both movies have to do with invasions from North Korea. Later this year "Whitehouse Down" will be coming out, also a Noth Korean invasion.
Propaganda Much? It makes me wonder what's going down in the near future with regards to that red-headed stepchild of the nuclear world. I wouldn't be too surprised, as the War on Terror seems to be calming down in the Middle East, to see an effort by our Commanders in Chief in the next couple decades to go after North Korea. I guess there's not alot that would surprise me with regards to our sensationalist and imperialist foreign policy, but the signals are all there, more blatant than usual. I mean really, Olympus has Fallen" and Whitehouse Down"? They're not even trying to disguise it, just rile us all up and instigate some deep racial hatred in a short amount of time. Just remember, we're the ones who are trying to dominate them at this point, not the other way around. Yet. I don't really blame them for being all pissed off at the U.S.
As Mike Chilnoy, the author of the above article, states:
"Every time Pyongyang has faced pressure, sanctions and coercion — as opposed to a U.S. willingness to engage — it has responded in precisely the same way: by doing the opposite of whatever the heightened pressure was designed to achieve. "
