    Re: Human Rights Abuses in North Korea

    My opinion is that any information, except from Dennis Rodman, is massaged by the NYTimes, WashPost, and LATimes and the large Corporate media to sound like North Korea is a huge threat to the USA to perk up those MIC contracts. Fake News is the name of the game in US Mainstream Media. Now those same distorters of news want to be the arbitors of "Who's who of honest news?" The mainstream and its' Intelligence Agency authors are the perpetrators of this fiasco. The Syria War started when the CIA's false flag election op failed and Assad was elected and funds and arms and training followed to destabilize Syria. You won't read that in the Mainsteam Media. How about North Korea? Well, I'm not believing anything printed by the same Mainstream Media because North Korea just "keeps on keepin' on" and is forced to counter the threat of US nuclear weapons stationed in South Korea. Nukes are something that sane people are afraid of. Now that North Korea has nukes, ol' Kim gets a little respect and how 'bout that? I think all that we hear about N. Korea is organized propaganda authored by the CIA. Kim might be just like Saddam, Assad, Qaddaffi or any other strong leader that is forced to organize and lead a Nation under difficult circumstances and demonstrates some success. If times are tough in North Korea, let's send them what they need like food and just like Slick Willy Clintoon did in the 1990's. I'm not a mushroom so don't stick me in a cave and feed me horsecrap,.

    So we push so that the UN gives a mandate and countries like China, Germany, Japan or Spain send troops of similar relative strengths to our own. We can supply logistics etc. we need a reliable system and organisation organized to automatically intervene, when situations occur. We cannot continue to pay for international security for our competitors.

    If that works. But if not then I'm not going to shrug my shoulders and say "guess it didn't work out".

    That's the thing about living in a free country, you don't get to pick and choose the rights you want protected. Either they're all protected, or none of them are.
