I have been so very interested in North Korea, Astonishing phenomenon regarding their culture and history and unfortunate communistic ties and now an even more unfortunate era of self reliance and Dictatorial system.
25 Million people, Hard as stone. A seemingly natural sense of obedience and what a force considering just that.
Apparently they have a Million Strong army with 1.2 Million on reserve available at a flick of a finger.
Then this very impressive control of their nuclear technology and seemingly a blatant threat is all very scary to say the least.
South Korea maybe the fastest grown economies and booming creating this envious hate between them. Then with USA's war drills in the area seem very risky.
I always thought of North K as this tiny irrelevant country but I wonder
I couldn't imagine these guys would back down to anything
Then while we have our local Oscar saga of tragedy we dont talk much of the 4 or 5 Russian war ships preparing occupation on Syria's shores..
Russians have been quiet but not dead or sleeping, You wonder what calamitous possibility with an Israeli strike on Syria or Vice verse and Russia involved and then USA ...
This nuclear business is heavy
And for SA to talk against North Korea, Please dont, They could always want to test a shorter range bomb in preparation for the 52 aimed at the US.
Rather leave them be.
As for my small opinion if I understand the dynamics and if I was Barack, I would open all closed doors and send aid, food and just send love to those Koreans. This is the messiest of situations on our planet whether we see it or not
Nice to talk about something else :)
