…I should be working on schoolwork right now, but
it’s really boring I feel the urge to post! Not much in the line of meaningful updates for the games or general news, in fact this post isn’t directly related to that stuff at all; it’s about North Korea.
Chances are you’ve heard the latest stream of news coming from “bellicose”( I’ve seen this word so many times in recent that I hate it) towards the world, specifically North America, Japan, and South Korea. I won’t pretend that I am an expert on what’s going on or know all the facts, but basically the DPRK(
Derpy Democatic People’s Republic of Korea) believes that it needs nuclear weapons to defend itself against the global community. What nation in this modern period wants ANYTHING to do with North Korea? China is their only ally of relevance and I doubt that relationship is reliable. My problem is they spend all their resources on their military(which is hopelessly outdated anyway) and not on the impoverish and starving masses. I also blame the world itself for just letting all the in humanities that occur their to happen while we just pretend it doesn’t matter. Remember what happen when the world just turned a blind eye to Nazi Germany? Now with the “Threat of the Day” specials from North Korea, Americans are acting with either characteristic:
Begging North Korea to attack us so that our missile defense system can take them down and then start a nuclear holocaust on North Korea and its citizens.
Synomynizing Kim as a child and referring to him as “Fatty”
The problem with warmongers is that North Korea isn’t causing issues, its Kim and the ideology that his family and the government are teaching, brainwashing the ignorant civilians. It wouldn’t be wise just “Frag Out” and cause the deaths of millions, but maybe something more covert…
Calling Kim a child and other names do nothing more than make a serious situation appear light. Yes this isn’t the first time that North Korea has issued suicidal threats in hopes of economic relief, but this time Kim has dug a hole for himself. He is still relatively new in office and needs to show strength in front of his people, and specifically his military. I don’t believe he expected the US to call his bluffs, and now is being pushed in a corner. Will he fail to deliver and become the laughing-stock of the world(not that he isn’t already) and face the negative effect among his people? Or will he become so desperate that he makes the move that wipes out North Korea?
China is a strong ally on his side, but that was 40 years ago when it was in China’s interests. Now China is an economic powerhouse, surpassing even the US, the last thing they would want is to become involved in a war of no gain for them. China has been in a shadow war with America since the Cold War, while not directly engaging America, they’ve been linked to several conflicts that America has been involved in to stop. What I’m saying, is that to take the situation with North Korea seriously and not be “Arm Chair Generals”. That’s it guys, until next time!
