Few believe when North Korea tells the truth

1. Despite fabrications, lies and deceptions in its propaganda, North Korea does tell the truth at times. North Korea has said umpteen times that its nuclear programs are non-negotiable.

(a) For instance, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told Russia's TASS news agency on 11 October 2017: "Our principal position is that we will never agree to any talks in which our nuclear weapons will be the subject of negotiations. ( North Korea?s missile program non-negotiable: FM )

(b) In a statement released by North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency on 24 December 2017, the rogue regime's foreign ministry said: “If the U.S. wishes to live safely, it must abandon its hostile policy towards the DPRK and learn to co-exist with the country that has nuclear weapons and should wake up from its pipe dream of our country giving up nuclear weapons which we have developed and completed through all kinds of hardships.” ( North Korea Says Giving Up Nuclear Weapons Is A ?Pipe Dream? )

2. In my Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (10)
the priest thought to himself after listening to the woman's sad story: "A liar does utter a word of truth sometimes. Dreamers and fools choose not to believe in a liar when he tells the truth but believe in him when he utters an untruth."

Similarly, although North Korea has said many times that its nuclear programs are non-negotiable, a sizeable proportion of the population in South Korea still turn a blind eye to the rogue state's disarming frankness. There is no shortage of South Korean politicians who claim to be in favour of denuclearising the North, but so far only paying lip service to the idea. It is understandable why they are trying their best not to infuriate the belligerent rogue state because South Korea will be the main battlefield if the North launches an attack. Thousands of North Korean artillery pieces, which stand ready around 30 miles away from Seoul, could inflict immeasurable damage and suffering on the city of 10 million people.

Despite this military advantage, North Korea continues to pour its efforts and resources into developing nuclear capabilities so as to achieve its goal of subduing the South with coercion, threats and nuclear blackmail. Several decades later, North Korea will have a formidable nuclear arsenal. Then it won't be surprising that the majority of South Koreans will choose to wave the white flag rather than perish in "a sea of fire" when North Korean tanks roll southward across the border. Hence when North Korea offered to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in January, the South was quick to accept the rare overture. However, when South Korea raised the issue of denuclearisation, the North threatened to withdraw the olive branch.

According to https://m.cnn.com/en/article/h_57358...335b59cf17224b
when the two Koreas met face-to-face for the first time in two years to hammer out details on how the secluded communist nation can take part in the Games in Pyeongchang, North Korea refused to put its nuclear weapons on the table. Ahead of the talks, an article in North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) accused South Korea of using the Olympic Games talks to pave the way to negotiations on North Korea's weapons programs. "This fact that South Korea is trying so hard to achieve our participation of the winter games clearly reveals their wicked intent of leading us into giving up nuclear weapons," KCNA said. "South Korea should carefully consider how their ill-mannered behaviors can bring shameful results."

3. According to Intellasia East Asia News - Ex-spy for Kim Jong Un says N Korea will use Olympics 'as a weapon'

(Begin excerpts)
...Kim Hyon-hui is a mass murderer, a former spy for North Korea who blew up a passenger jet in 1987 on orders from Kim Jong Un’s father...

And with the Olympics returning to South Korea in just over two weeks in PyeongChang, she’s warning the world not to trust Kim Jong Un. She sees dark motives behind his decision to send athletes to the Winter Olympics.

According to Kim Hyon-hui, the regime hopes to try to separate South Korea from its ally, the United States, and eventually to reunify the Korean Peninsula under Communist rule.

“North Korea is using the Olympics as a weapon,” Kim Hyon-hui said. “It’s trying to escape the sanctions by holding hands with South Korea, trying to break free from international isolation.

She described the joint Korean Olympic team as “a publicity stunt for Kim Jong Un....

However, Kim Hyon-hui believes the country’s eventual goal is to get rid of American troops from the Korean Peninsula and predicted “North Korea will start its provocations again” in the months following the Olympics.

She added: “North Korea won’t give up its nuclear weapons. They’re its lifeline.” (End excerpts)

4. I agree with Kim Hyon-hui that North Korea is "trying to escape the sanctions by holding hands with South Korea, trying to break free from international isolation”.

Regarding the $500m, mostly from Hyundai, that had preceded his warm welcome in Pyongyang, Kim Dae-jung, Ex-President of South Korea (25 February 1998 – 25 February 2003), responded typically: “A rich brother should not visit a poor brother empty-handed.” ( Kim Dae-jung | The Economist )

Hard-pressed by US-led sanctions, the poor brother has become poorer than before. Once again the poor brother is waiting with outstretched hands for his rich brother's visit.

Dear Senator, sorry to find you in such a confused state of mind.

Either you have not read my post carefully or you have a poor understanding of English. Maybe your head is still swirling after the "pumpkin dance".

Please refer to the following statement in my thread:

I agree with Kim Hyon-hui that North Korea is "trying to escape the sanctions by holding hands with South Korea, trying to break free from international isolation”.

You have confessed in your signature: "I actually feel like I have a certain amount of uncertainty about how I actually feel." No wonder you always talk with your head in the cloud.

P.S. Keep dancing!

Thank you for your post. I am sure all readers are waiting eagerly for your forceful response to our friend Senator Ralph47.

In all my threads, I have taken an anti-North Korea stance and advocated tougher actions against the rogue state, even enforcing a naval blockade if necessary.

For example, take the following excerpts from my thread entitled China and Russia deny breaching UN sanctions

(Begin excerpts)
4. There are increasing signs that North Korea is buckling under pressure of UN sanctions. That explains the desperate attempts by the drowning North Korean devil incarnate to get a lifeline from its two patrons (China and Russia) or a third party such as private companies. It won't be surprising that more foreign ships could be seized for breaching UN sanctions on North Korea in the future. It would be more effective to seize North Korean ships which are caught red-handed in the illicit trade. Like birds returning to their nests after going out to search for food, North Korean vessels could be easily seized while they are returning to ports with their illicit cargoes. The US must intensify its sanctions against North Korea, even enforcing a naval blockade if necessary. (End excerpts)

P.S. Either our friend Senator Ralph47 has not read all my threads or posts carefully, or he has failed miserably in his English comprehension.

Perhaps his head is still swirling like his animation after the "pumpkin dance".

My bad! All your posts have been too lengthy to read (especially since they are fairy tales).

Too bad! You have missed one great enjoyment in life as you regard fairy tales as "too lengthy to read".

My posts are not the so-called fairy tales about any fairy godmother, wicked step-mother or a poor girl like Cinderella living happily ever after with a dashing prince after marriage. They are political satires about world affairs.

No matter how long are my posts (as claimed by you), none of them is longer than George Orwell's allegorical novella "Animal Farm" or Hans Christian Andersen's satire "The Emperor's New Clothes".

From your lame excuse in this thread, I conclude that you dislike reading books or newspapers because the passages are "too lengthy to read".

I guess that your head must be swirling very hard whenever you read an English passage during an English language lesson in your school days. To you, all English passages are "too lengthy to read".

Summary

To obtain lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, denuclearisation of North Korea is just the first step. The second step is to ask Fatboy Kim to step down from his throne and disband the communist party for reunification and free elections. North Korea has said umpteen times that its nuclear programme is non-negotiable. Even when it offered to participate in the Winter Olympics, it had made no secret that it would never give up its nuclear weapons. Hence it is a pipe dream to expect the so-called thaw in Korean relations to bring about denuclearisation of North Korea.

It is evident from North Korea's Winter Olympic diplomacy that sanctions have begun to bite. Under enormous pressure, North Korea has resorted to clutch at the (South Korean) straw like a drowning man. The so-called rapprochement between the two Koreas will give the rogue regime a brief but much-needed respite to develop its nuclear programme and eventually subdue the South with nuclear blackmail. In the face of mounting sanctions, North Korea urgently requires economic aid and the reopening of the Kaesong joint-venture with the South under another “Sunshine Policy”.

Meanwhile, the US and its allies must keep up the momentum of the sanctions and maximise pressure on North Korea. If North Korea succeeds to use the so-called thaw in inter-Korean relations to break the sanctions, not only the US, South Korea and other US allies but the whole world will long regret for missing the long-awaited chance to finally denuclearise North Korea, being outwitted by the rogue regime again at the critical moment.
