Comments on: “Is our country really that dangerous?” Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: jmnjr Mon, 01 Nov 2010 14:55:04 +0000 Yeah “AdamSmith”, you are missing everything including being American. You are either a North Korean agent or a brain washed ignoramous. The facts and figures you broadcast are figments of your imagination with no basis in fact or truth. We won’t have any further debate simply because you are not going to listen and are not interested in the truth. One other thing: if you are living in America, I suggest you move to a less “dangerous country” such as North Korea.

By: AdamSmith Sun, 17 Oct 2010 07:25:48 +0000 This year and every year for the past 50 years, the American military has staged aggressive mock bombing attacks against North Korea.

Over and over, fully loaded American bombers routinely fly directly at North Korea’s cities and then veer away at the last moment. Ships position offshore in attack formation.

Yet, in the past 50 years, who has North Korea invaded or harmed? Nobody.

Meanwhile, the American military-industrial complex built over 12,000 nuclear weapons, and has invaded Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Iran and Afganistan — brutally killing over 2 million human beings — men, women and children — with its bombs, artillery shrapnel, bullets and helicopter gunship rockets.

American troops have committed unspeakable, mind-boggling atrocities against Vietnamese, Iraqi, and Afghan civilians, including women and children, the village of Mai Lai being an example.

It is we Americans, not the North Koreans, who have become the most dangerous country on earth.

Or am I missing something?

Instead of always threatening them with American militarism, Why aren’t the South Koreans doing more to ease the way forward for their kin up North?

To Rfairb’s point, most people do “just live normal, quiet lives” but that’s what makes totalitarian repression so egregious. The dynastic cult-of-personality members grow fat in palaces while the quiet, normal folk in the DPRK (who live outside the village the minders take the foreign press to) struggle to cope with the boot they’re under.

By: Rfairb Fri, 15 Oct 2010 15:13:39 +0000 No matter what the country, most people just live normal, quiet lives. The many millions who live in a country can’t be punished for what a few individuals say or do.
