Sabre or Pen Rattling?

The quality of journalism in our national news media never ceases to amaze me.

No reminding us of how untrustworthy US military ‘intelligence’ is after US-led invasions of Iraq in 1991 and especially 2003.

No suggestion that while North Korea may be ‘rattling sabres’, it is the US that is pretending to drop nuclear weapons on them just over the border.

And no pointing to the blatant hypocrisy in John Kerry’s claim that North Korea is using “provocative… dangerous, reckless” rhetoric.

In fact, on the same day Kim Jong-Un visited his soldiers on Mu Island, there were 80,000 US and South Korean troops participating in a joint annual training exercise. For the first time in its history, this war exercise included a simulation of a pre-emptive attack by South Korean artillery units in an all-out war scenario against North Korea.

Kim is probably not the mad man that mainstream news tries to portray him as, rather a young man trying to prove himself while suffering an inevitable sense of threat that he will be perceived as weak and inadequate by others within the regime.

I’m pleased Meng Foon is sending a request to our Sister City in Palm Desert to call on their nation’s leader to pursue peace rather than war. The mad men sitting on over 5,000 nuclear warheads and spending more than a million dollars every minute of every day on the military industry should raise at least as much concern as their avowed enemy in North Korea.
