north korea

South Korea's newly-elected President Park Geun-Hye is already signalling she wants better relations with their northern neighbor.

Good luck with that.

Last time South Korea tried this, it was called the Sunshine Policy. It was an utter failure. In exchange for economic zones that almost entirely benefited Pyongyang, and boatloads of free food and fuel for the beggar-bully in the north, South Korea got zilch.

The North Korean regime can only attempt to justify its existence by demonizing an external enemy (whether that country wants to be an enemy or not). There can be no peace until the regime is toppled.More >>

In the mournful period following the death of North Korea's Dear Leader, one army minister allegedly dealt with his sorrow through "drinking and carousing" -- evoking too much of a celebratory mood for Kim Jong Un. (Of course, it wouldn't surprise anyone that the official's supposed "crime" was an entirely faked cover story to provide a veneer of a rationale for what happened next... not that what happened next would be a rational response).

The offending official was allegedly made to stand on a spot as a mortar was fired to "obliterate" him.

"14 senior officials" have been purged since the Kim dynasty handed over the mantle to Fat Boy. Presumably, this one won't be the last.

The Propagandist Magazine news world politics political commentaryThe Propagandist's Allies continue to sabotage the enemy's plans by getting critical dispatches out to mobilize the masses. And it's Friday.

Here are the latest dispatches from the front lines:

The Propagandist's Allies are preparing to get it on like Donkey Kong. Whatever that means.

The latest dispatches from the front, courtesy of our friends from the left side, right side and a few parts in between.

Kim Jong Il may be dead, but the spirit of his father, Kim Il Sung, remains. As one notorious writer of pulp terror fantasies might have put it for this modern-day reality horror story, "That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die."More >>

Whatever brief opportunity for North Korea's subject people's freedom existed in the wake of the death of the Dear Leader, the moment appears to have passed. The Great Successor has seized the reigns in Pyongyang with the blessing of the military.

Another generation of starvation, persecution and totalitarian control looms ahead for what may be the most unfree nation in modern history.More >>

From Reason Magazine:

When journalist Christopher Hitchens died on December 15, 2011 he was soon followed in the grave by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, a loathsome figure whose atrocities Hitchens spent a fair amount of time of documenting. Given the proximity in time of their deaths, Reason is happy to re-release this 2007 featuring Hitchens' dramatic reading of Tom Lehrer's "Christmas Song." Taped at Reason's DC headquarters before a crowd of about 150 people, Hitchens begins his performance with a peroration about one-party states in North Korea--and North America.

If it's true, then North Korea is looking at one of three outcomes:

  1. A continuation of the dynasty under the son, Kim Jong-Un.
  2. A military coup, in which not a whole lot changes.
  3. Revolution.

The third outcome may be the least likely. Then again, if enough people are sick and tired of watching their children starve to death or their family members get hauled off to concentration camps, maybe now is the beginning of the end of hell on Earth.More >>

Because your country murdered 400 pro-democracy demonstrators.

Ambassadors from Iran, North Korea and Zimbabwe are still invited, though. No reporters have managed to catch these countries murdering 400 citizens... this week.

Seriously, can't Prince William and Kate Middleton simply choose not to host representatives for mass-murdering regimes that hate everything the UK stands for at their wedding?

A representative from Help For Heroes, a charity that helps those who have been wounded in Britain's current conflicts, is invited to the wedding. How does that mesh with inviting the Iranian ambassador, who works for a country that supplies IEDs to the Taliban to kill British and other NATO soldiers?

It is their wedding, right? And if it isn't -- if someone wants to make the case that this is a national event put on by the nation for the nation, there's even more reason to make sure the bouncers keep out the riff-raff.

propagandist magazine politics essay comment newsYou might think there would be more good news from our allies at the time of year when peace and goodwill towards all is supposed to be the standard. Not so much. The Propagandist links to some of the bizarro stuff happening out there, from Amnesty-International vetted "charity workers" fighting (and dying) for jihad in Afghanistan to the weirdness of North Korea and the international community. Oh, and Christmas-timed terror attacks, naturally.

Amnesty International And Its 'Cage Prisoners' Poster Boy Get What They Wanted. "Rideh was a poster boy for jihadist Moazzam Begg's Cage Prisoners outfit, which has enjoyed the support, the services and the platforms of Amnesty International, to the great dismay of AI supporters and some AI staff, most notably AI whistleblower Gita Saghal, who was turfed from her job as head of AI's Gender Unit for her trouble."

The PA's Choice: Palestinian State or Palestinian Cause. Rather than engage in negotiations which will reinforce the need for compromise, the PA has embarked on a strategy that, in the language of de Callieres, places its "passions"...More >>
