Future of North Korea?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It will probably collapse when it no longer has the support of the Chinese government, if you have been paying attention, China and North Korea have a strained relationship at the moment and it is deteriorating.

Again,nobody knows what will happen to the People's Democratic Republic of North Korea in the future, save for Allah SWT. However, I hope that I live to see a united Korea someday, insha'allah.

What could possibly happen is if North Korea witnesses an imminent threat, they would retaliate by throwing everything they have at Seoul, killings tens of thousands. As for uniting with South Korea, I don't see why people of North Korea would want to give up their "land" to join the others. China probably does not want South Korea to become any stronger as well, or want them on their border. 

The situation in North Korea could probably drag out for many years to come, as the outcomes of any change seem to be very messy.

I believe, for the years to come, north Korea will remain unharmed.

With these tensions between the US and China, Chinese will understand that they need more allies in the region so keeping north Korea which is their ally would be wise, while China is surrounded by US allies such as Japan and South Korea. In such situation, North Korea's survival is necessary for China, if they seek the balance of power in the east.

l did some research today on the future of the DPRK as an extension of following the Kim Jong-nam murder. The links:

http://www.japantoday.com/category/politics/view/u-s-s-korea-and-japan-look-to-turn-screws-on-pyongyang     because the DPRK is "flouting (UN) sanctions" and a group of the "floutings" is located in Malaysia:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/26/north-korea-spy-agency-runs-arms-operation-malaysia-says-un/  REUTERS: Malaysia's gov't has not responded "to repeated requests for comment about Glocom". Glocom sells 34 series of police and military radios.

A general comment on DPRK's economy: http://sinonk.com/2013/03/18/north-koreas-taiwan-option-exploring-two-deals/ 

A commentary on the West and the DPRK: http://sputniknews.com/analysis/201702281051108304-north-korea-west-opinion/ 

Most of these are short.

^Hello,

I don't think Brother Jackson vacations there.  I was just kidding.  I doubt he could get a visa.  But, he is an ardent fan/apologist for the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea."

All the Best,

David

I would really like to visit North Korea and Russia, to see how much of what you hear on CNN and BBC is pure BS.

I was doing some reading. You can get KCNA news. KCNAWatch looks best, but l just started reading on the DPRK.

Factoid: DPRK is the size of Mississippi and 25 millions population. Here is what l was looking up: Manufacturing employment is 9 million-64% of 14+ millions employed. Now here is the comparison that l looked up: the US lost 5 million manufacturing jobs from 2000 to March 2016 and now has 12 million people employed in manufacturing.

Sad, ain't it?

Trump has a big order to fill.

A Financial Times -Hong Kong reporter was interviewed by BBC on further sanctions on the DPRK.  Don Weinland was explaining why the "gray area" of who-own-what, who-regulates-what, whose-ship-is-this, and so forth, makes for further sanctions difficult to implement because of the variety of ships and shippers involved.

Prediction:  The UNSC will now impose a sea blockade on DPRK.

Opine: The UNSC, using Putin's characterization, will take the "Let them eat grass" attitude. A mistake l think.

As SC has currently 3 threads on the DPRK, l chose this one.

02Oct17 according to KCNAwatch, their "Threat Index" has a precipitous drop.

Interesting read of 5 pages (printed). Back Channels to the DPRK are iffy

As stated in article, the DPRK wants to talk to the US.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-missiles-eu/eus-diplomatic-back-channel-in-pyongyang-goes-cold-idUSKCN1C81SM 

There, at the end, is a short on "normalizing" Trump.

Tired of the uninformed rhetoric based comments on TV?

Here is a half-hour DW "Close-Up" profile of Kim Jong-un. Easy to follow and well done.

http://www.dw.com/en/kim-jong-un-north-koreas-dangerous-leader/av-40877925 

The word "dangerous" when applied to the film's contents can mean: the man, the near Orwellian political culture, the nuclear devices, party internal politics, the potential liabilities in propaganda, and so forth.

Kin Jong-un according to the film tries to emulate his grandfather Kim ll-sung more than his father Kim Jong-ll.

What is WRONG with people?

46% of Republicans want war with the DPRK

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/10/14/almost-half-of-republicans-want-war-with-north-korea-says-a-new-poll-is-it-the-trump-effect/?utm_term=.6e9e77beb71f 

A Quinnipiac University poll.

To put this in the perspective required for laughter:

The Taliban had a few worn out AA pieces and mortars and the US with lFOR hasn't been able to get then to a "peace table" -much less defeated-- in 16 years. And now these clowns want to start another war on DPRK with an Army that hasn't finished rebuilding from lraq?

:hahaha:

639:   30Nov17

On 29Nov in St. Charles, Missouri, President Trump called DPRK Leader Kim Jong-un a "sick puppy". This after "imposing additional sanctions" on the country in wake of the Hwasong-15 lCBM launch (apparently a change in design of the Hwasong-14's second stage from two to four motors).  Also, both the PRC and Russia have expressed unhappiness with the DPRK being a nuclear missile power.

That writ, this historical survey article is not the profile of an inadequate leader:
