By this point it is fairly obvious.
Firstly, their moves are very calculated. They announce what they want to draw our attention. Unfortunately, that is a fairly weak tactic because even I who made all these topics can easily realize that if they were planning anything seriously they would not be announcing their attacks. I almost replied here to say that I no longer believe war was coming, because it is fairly obvious that if you actually plan to win a war you don’t tell everyone about it and you don’t tell everyone your missiles are fueled and aimed.
But it’s not that they want to feign threats. They do want war (I honestly can’t understand why, as a psychologist myself, but they do), but this part is just a diversion. Misguidedly they are hoping that with our attention drawn to the 2 east missiles they have gassed up we will miss the X missiles they have moved to the west and near the border.
It was a nice idea, but the world is not so stupid.
Next they say that any shooting-down of missiles by Japan will result in war.
Their next plan is to launch a missile over Japan, which will of course be shot down.
In this way they can declare themselves as victims or otherwise try to justify their offensive. They know at least enough to realize that they can’t take a pre-emptive approach, even though they have threatened one. They will have no backers in that scenario, not even from their secret backers in the middle east. War has to be justified.
From their point of view, living under nuclear threat with no countermeasure for 50 years is provocation, and their research is just an obvious reaction to it.
Who ever threatened them with nukes?
This is where I just stop following your arguments.
#1: America has no interest in North Korea. Not even as a villain. Except now when they start to make these kinds of threats.
#2: What nuclear threat? When has America ever threatened anyone with nuclear weapons besides Japan? Isn’t it fairly clear to the world
that America has resolved to never use nuclear weapons again? In fact if all-out war did break out, America still
would not use nuclear devices against North Korea. Not even if North Korea used them against America. I can guarantee that.
Under certain leadership America may have targeted a country without provocation, but no other leadership has been so bad, especially including the current one.
A new leader every 4 years. You take the good with the bad. Imagine if we had a system such as North Korea’s and Bush was a long-term leader.
Each new leader learns from the previous’ mistakes, and that is the whole point.
There is absolutely no chance of America provoking North Korea in any way should North Korea by itself not invoke such provokation.
Looking at their viewpoint? What is the purpose?
I am not saying this as a narrow-minded person, obviously
, since I have worked in so many countries and get along so easily with everyone
(the person making the tools for my engine is from Afghanistan and has even e-mailed me quotes such as “Allahu Akbar”, and if I saw anyone giving him any level of racism I would kick that person’s ass).
The plain and simple facts are that America broke them free from Japan many years ago and since some family thinks it needs more power they are upset about it. Meanwhile America doesn’t give a shit about Asia, much less specific countries such as Korea. America is only focused on the Middle East.
A few wars waged, a delusional dictator brought down (since he executed anyone who gave him bad news people never gave him bad news, and by the end of his time he really believed he could conquer the world), and nothing related to Asia at all.
And the dictators of North Korea want to somehow turn this into aggression towards them.
If they didn’t speak so many words of terror against the world’s 15th economic power, how has never made a provocative move towards North Korea (cite me on this}), they wouldn’t have to fear anything from America.
How does that not make sense?
And don’t give me any of that “seeing it from their viewpoint” bullshit.
Because the only thing I can see as a nation’s leader is an import/export trade as a start to economic growth.
His people starve while he gets fat.
Don’t even question why I dislike him and his family. There is no justification for his existence except that his father used his power to rape a woman without being jailed for it.
As a dictator, my policy would be to get revenge on America by creating a stronger economy than theirs.
Their strategy instead is to just threaten the world into giving them food and aid. Such an existence, a burden to the world, is unnecessary.
If you want to see their side so much, now you can imagine being the person who gets his way only by threatening others.
At the school dance you got to dance with the cute girl just because you threatened to beat up her boyfriend.
Of course with Kim Fat in charge, it’s more like you threatened to beat up her boyfriend, so she danced with you, and then you beat up her boyfriend anyway.
It seems as though you are very willing to see their side of it.
Which is great! Me too!
I even dated one of them!
Why are you so open-minded and yet so close-minded?
Or, why are you so selectively open-minded?
Threats against North Korea aside from those they bring on themselves? Seriously?
If they did not mention nuclear threats, who would have? Seriously? No one ever thought about North Korea and nukes until they themselves made such a connection in the publics’ minds.
But all of that aside, my main beef with North Korea is its policy towards its people.
You have to keep his picture in your home. His picture is on every train.
Give me a frigging break.
A person I respect for his technical expertise is Hodgman. Would it not make more sense to have his picture in their homes and on their trains? What the fuck did Kim Fat do to deserve respect from anyone?
You don’t just go around telling people they need to have your picture in their homes and in their trains unless you are a world champion in something.
Ironically, I have been a world champion 4 times and have never requested my picture to be in anyone’s home!
