Eric, where is the outrage about this ? How do we
diagnose 'selective hysteria," I wonder ?


The Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People's
Republic of Korea announced on October 3 that the DPRK
planned to conduct a nuclear test. The Foreign
Ministry stated that the planned nuclear test was in
response to the grave situation created by the US,
where "the supreme national security interests 
of the DPRK are at stake with the Korean nation
standing at the crossroads of life and death". 

The nuclear test, once conducted, will have
far-reaching implications for the Koreas and the rest
of the world. It carries five messages. 

The first message is that Kim Jong-il is the greatest
of the peerless national heroes Korea has ever
produced. Kim is unique in that he is the first to
equip Korea with sufficient military capability to
take the war all the way to the continental US. Under
his leadership the DPRK has become a nuclear-weapons
state with intercontinental means of delivery. Kim is
certainly in the process of achieving the long-elusive
goal of neutralizing the American intervention in
Korean affairs and bringing together North and South
Korea under the umbrella of a confederated state. 

Unlike all the previous wars Korea fought, a next war
will be better called the American War or the DPRK-US
War because the main theater will be the continental
US, with major cities transformed into towering
infernos. The DPRK is now the fourth-most powerful
nuclear weapons state just after the US, Russia, and

The DPRK has all types of nuclear bombs and warheads,
atomic, hydrogen and neutron, and the means of
delivery, short-range, medium-range and long-range,
putting the whole of the continental US within
effective range. The Korean People's Army also is
capable of knocking hostile satellites out of action. 

All the past Korean heroes let the Land of Morning
Calm be reduced to smoking ruins as the wars were
fought on its soil, even though they repelled the
invaders. One of the two major aspirations of the
Korean people has been the buildup of military
capability enough to turn enemy land into the war
theater. Kim has splendidly achieved this aspiration. 

The other has been the neutralization and phasing out
of the American presence in Korea before the two
Koreas come together as a reunified state. When
President George W Bush agreed on the 2009 transfer of
wartime operational control over South Korean forces
to the South Korean president, Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld signaled the withdrawal of US troops
with combat troops relocated from the front line to
bases behind Seoul.
