North Korea, if it were opened up, would be like Soviet Union after Mikhail Gorbachev declared Perest…
This should disturb everyone.Our media is state run Soviet Union, North Korea type propaganda.Why do we allow this?
Collectivist systems are like North Korea and the Soviet Union. We do not have a collectivist system.
Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, Venezuela etc, I think he should have kept his 'hot' economic policy to himself...
I think that it has worked if it is compared with say former Soviet Union or North Korea. The question for me is to what 1/2
USA is a totalitarian regime like Soviet Union or North Korea. USA is NOT the 'Land of Freedom' because it's Propaganda!. OPEN THE EYES!
Soviet Union (this time Russia) is builder to East Germany Country and North Korea (Republic Democratic of Folk Korea).
ok after you read this don't ever again say anything bad about the Soviet Union or North Korea or Iran.
After the Korean War, the Soviet Union emerged as the main trading partner and sponsor of North Korea.
Russia has a list of 869 Japanese who died in repatriation camp set up by Soviet Union in what is now North Korea.
The Mig-19 was the Soviet Union's first serial production supersonic jet fighter. Initially conceived as a day fighter with limited all-weather capability, the Mig-19 evolved into a formidable aircraft. Rushed design and production gave the Mig-19 many problems in operational use and safety. This determent was so much, that air arms operating the Mig-19 quickly replaced their examples with the later Mig-21 or Western designs. Despite it's shortcomings, the Mig-19 and it's derivatives saw combat in the Vietnam War, the Arab-Israeli conflicts, the Ogaden War (between Somaila and Ethiopia), the Iran-Iraq war of the nineteen eighties, Indo-Pakistani wars of the nineteen seventies and in various Cold War skirmishes. Mig-19's were built under license in Czechoslovakia as the S-105 and in China as the J-6. Chinese production improved upon the design into variants not produced by the Soviet Union. Notably, a two-seat trainer, the JJ-6, was produced in China along with a significantly-modified variant, called the ...
Oh yeah. State Capitalism though. I was thinking more Cuba, the Old Soviet Union & North Korea.
December 23, 1968: The crew and captain of the U.S. intelligence gathering ship Pueblo are released after 11 months imprisonment by the government of North Korea. The ship, and its 83-man crew, was seized by North Korean warships on January 23 and charged with intruding into North Korean waters. Constructed by the Kewaunee Shipbuilding and Engineering Company of Wisconsin during World War II, FP-344 was commissioned April 7, 1945. Serving as a freight and supply vessel for the US Army, it was crewed by the US Coast Guard. In 1966, the vessel was transferred to the US Navy and re-named USS Pueblo in reference to the city in Colorado. Redesignated AKL-44, Pueblo initially served a light cargo vessel. Shortly thereafter, it was withdrawn from service and converted to a signals intelligence ship. Given the hull number AGER-2 (Auxiliary General Environmental Research), Pueblo was intended to operate as part of a joint US Navy-National Security Agency program. Ordered to Japan, Pueblo arrived at Yokosuka under ...
New blog about North Korea vs. Sony. Please share if you like... Season’s Greetings, everyone! It’s time to gather with family, exchange gifts, and wonder how Hollywood could give in to terrorists at Christmas, completely ignoring the lesson from Die Hard. In case you missed it, Sony Pictures planned to release a new film called The Interview, in which North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is killed by the 21st century Cheech and Chong. The fearless-in-theory-only leader wasn’t too happy with that plot, so his crack team of malnourished but tech savvy henchmen hacked into Sony, released some private emails, and threatened worse if the movie was released. Sony backed down. It should be noted that a group calling itself “Guardians of Peace” took responsibility for the attack, not North Korea. Some authorities on this side of free speech even say the cyber hit was orchestrated at a fraternity in Virginia. But since Rolling Stone isn’t in the national security business, the FBI has narrowed it down to N ...
North Korea's only been a country for 67 years - and it's always been run by a Kim family member From 1948 to 1994 it was this dude - born Kim Sŏng-ju but better known to Koreans north and south of the Demilitarized Zone as Kim Il Sung Born in 1910 in what was then known as Japanese Korea to a father that was a Presbyterian minster (yes, Kim's a Christian, baptized and saved and all that, but obviously not a regular churchgoer) his family fled to China when he was a young kid He found communism in the Christian schools of North China, became a guerrilla warrior fighting the occupying Japanese and then he fled to the Soviet Union and joined their army during World War II When the Soviet Union and the US partitioned Japanese Korea after World War II, the Russians needed somebody who was politically reliable, ethnic Korean and actually born in Korea to run their half of the country - Colonel Kim Il Sung was the perfect candidate for that In 1947 the Americans - violating the treaty that partitioned Korea .. ...
I am quite certain that torture was/is effective for the Nazi's, North Korea, China and the old Soviet Union. That has never been the real issue. The real issue is do we, the United States of America, torture people? The answer is either yes or no. There is no maybe on this subject.

Sometimes--no, often--we forget just how well off we are in the face of the myriad of problems in the world today. I hope the author won't mind me passing on his comment, I'm not registered with that online publication, or I'd have asked first. I wish I could thank him directly. Sometimes the comments on an article are as good, even better, than the article itself. "* [new] The number of such groups and their hot spots (15+ / 0-) is down remarkably from the last days of the Soviet Union. Both the Communist and anti-Communist tyrannies mostly collapsed within the first few years after the Soviet Union split up. Many of the civil wars petered out, and relatively few replaced them. Economic growth started to catch on globally, with some hitches. It used to be that all of Central Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, and Latin America were political and economic disaster zones, with something over 150 tyrannies and civil wars.

N.Korea marks 66 years of Russia ties North Korea's state-run media has made no mention of leader Kim Jong Un on the 66th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Russia. The Korean Workers' Party newspaper Rodong Sinmun published an article on Sunday praising bilateral relations, saying the former Soviet Union was the first country to establish diplomatic ties with North Korea. It noted the 2 nations' close cooperation in political, economic and other fields in line with the principles of equality and non-interference in the internal affairs of their nations. The article said the friendly relationship fully meets the interests of the peoples of both countries and contributes to the peace and security of Asia and the world. North Korea is working to strengthen relations with Russia now that the ties with its longtime ally Beijing have recently cooled. North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong visited Russia earlier this month. He agreed with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov that the 2 nations will str ...
I do not believe there is an atheist in the world who would bulldoze Mecca—or Chartres, York Minster or Notre Dame, the Shwe Dagon, the temples of Kyoto or, of course, the Buddhas of Bamiyan.~ Richard Dawkins. Mr. Mikhail Mashin, the director of the ZIL, has built a thriving business on the refutation of this particular Dawkinsian myth. Under Soviet rule, ZIL made cars, but the competition ZIL faced from Western automotive manufacturers after the fall of the Soviet Union forced the company to creatively explore other markets. ZIL now manufactures church bells because there is a booming business in church construction due to the fact that from 1917 to 1969, the atheist Soviets destroyed 41,000 of Russia’s 48,000 churches, including Christ the Savior Cathedral, a Moscow landmark that was built to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon’s invasion. This massive destruction of religious art and architecture was neither ideological nor political in nature, it was The God Delusion in action, a material atheist ...
So this week is the ACLU's Banned Books week. Here are a few of my favorite pieces of literature that have been banned by oppressive states: -All Quiet on the Western Front: Banned in Nazi Germany for demoralizing and insulting the Wehrmacht. -Animal Farm: Completed in 1943, Orwell found that no publisher would print the book, due to its criticism of the U.S.S.R., an important ally of Britain in the War. Once published, the book was banned in the USSR and other communist countries. A play of Animal Farm was banned in Kenya in 1991, because it criticizes corrupt leaders. In 2002, the novel was banned in the schools of the United Arab Emirates, because it contained text or images that goes against Islamic values, most notably the occurrence of an anthropomorphic, talking pig. The book is still banned in Cuba, North Korea, and Thailand, and censored in China. -Brave New World: Banned in Ireland in 1932, also banned in Australia from 1932-1937 -Nineteen Eighty-Four: Banned by the Soviet Union in 1950, as Stal ...
Communism is based on the concept that there is NO private ownership of property. This system involves a totalitarian government using dictatorial processes to reach a utopian ideal of full equality. Karl Marx described the system as "from each according to his ability; to each according to his needs." Examples of Communist states include 1. USSR under Stalin 2. China under Mao 3. North Korea 4. Cuba In the Communist system, personal rights and freedoms are subservient to the state. The government owns all means of production and distribution. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has become a capitalist dictatorship with wealth concentrated in the hands of just a few. In China, the much-heralded embrace of capitalism, has created wealth for a tiny few -- many of whom are leaders of the government. Now, let's look at Fascism. While many people argue about who are fascists and where they fit on the political spectrum from left to right, there are some areas of agreement. Let's look at those areas: ...
of Korea. The division of Korea into South Korea and North Korea was the result of the 1945 Allied victory in World War II, ending the Empire of Japan's 35-year colonial rule of Korea by General Order No. 1. The United States and the Soviet Union agreed to temporarily occupy the country as a trusteeship with the zone of control along the 38th parallel. The purpose of this trusteeship was to establish a Korean provisional government which would become "free and independent in due course", as set forth in the Cairo Conference. Though elections were scheduled, the Soviet Union refused to cooperate with United Nations plans to hold general and free elections in the two Korean zones, and as a result, a Communist state was permanently established under Soviet auspices in the north and a pro-Western state was set up in the south.] The two superpowers backed different leaders and two states were effectively established, each of which claimed sovereignty over the whole Korean Peninsula. The Korean War, which laste ...
세라조 발표 영어 자료 Communism is an ideology which seems to be gradually disappearing after the Cold War and collapse of Soviet Union. However, we can see many countries which still maintain such political system until these days. Those communist countries like North Korea, China and Russia, largely influence the global society and cause many problems. This is the meaning of Communism in Du San Encyclopedia. Communism is a word originated from a Latin word ‘commune’ which means ‘sharing of property’ and refers a social system which abolishes private property system and let all members to share the ownership of the property. This communist ideology which meant to realize the rational and just community by penetrating the social and moral corruption arise from the private property system and establishing the sharing of the ownership on property as its foundation, can be seen to be started when men began their political and social speculation. Communism described in Social Welfare Dictiona ...
It's the kind of thing one would expect in North Korea or the former Soviet Union - countries where government "minders" severely curtail what reporters can see
Kim Jong-Il wasn't born in North Korea, but in the Soviet Union.
like North Korea and the Soviet Union when it existed, they wanted the whole world to be communist
Very spooky stuff. Reminiscent of flags I saw waved in North Korea, Cuba, Communist China, and the Soviet Union.
The African Renaissance Monument is a 49m tall bronze statue located on top one of the twin hills known as Collines des Mamelles, outside of Dakar, Senegal. Built overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the Ouakam suburb, the statue was designed by the Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby after an idea presented by president Abdoulaye Wade and built by a company from North Korea. Site preparation on top of the 100-meter high hill began in 2006, and construction of the bronze statue began 3 April 2008. Originally scheduled for completion in December 2009, delays stretched into early 2010, and the formal dedication occurred on 4 April 2010, Senegal's "National Day", commemorating the 50th anniversary of the country's independence from France. It is the tallest statue in the world outside Asia and the former Soviet Union.
Very sad, the way it starts is in the school system, North Korea, Viet Nam, Soviet Union, China, Hitler's Germany just to name a few and now the USA. When it starts the only way to stop it is war.
We have never experienced a drought like the one that ravaged China in 1907, killing an estimated 24 million. Millions more died in subsequent famines caused by droughts in 1928-30, 1936 and 1941-42. Similar famine caused an estimated 5 million deaths in the Ukraine and Volga regions of the former Soviet Union in 1921-22. As recently as 1965-67, drought in India caused 1.5 million deaths. To this day, North Korea and Ethiopia are experiencing drought-related food shortages bringing hunger and despair to millions upon millions.
THE US DEMONIZATION OF RESISTANCE COUNTRIES. JFK was killed by the CIA because he challenged the Military Industrial Complex, After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the USA became the sole Superpower. It is now seeking the world domination of Global Finance Capitalism. Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are standing in the way; that is why those countries are being demonized. There has to be a new bloc of free nations to challenge the Evil Empire.

So let me get this straight. Obama says the economy is doing great yet Yellen said today that extreme measures are still needed, that means the 85 billion dollar per month pumping will continue. Obamacare is doing great with millions signing up yet they can't tell us how many have paid but we do know that 6 million lost their insurance and around 4 million have supposedly signed up through the exchanges, problem is 4 out of 5 that have signed up are getting subsidies from the tax payer. Obama is great at foreign policy yet, North Korea is shooting at South Korea, Iran is building a nuke, Russia is trying to bring back the old Soviet Union, Syria is exploding and we are cutting the military. This guy is a joke, it would be funny except for the fact our country is being destroyed!
Memo to President Barack Obama: Vladimir Putin is old school. He is a product of the Cold War and knows that Russia will die unless they reclaim the former "glory" of the Soviet Union. He doesn't give a *** about you or the US or even his own people. He is Stalin reborn. The 1st beast is now alive in the second beast (if you believe Cardinal Bellermine and his theories on the end times) as the Arminian church sees things. It is best that you use the resources from the past to deal with the reality of the present. We will end up fighting this battle no matter what diplomacy is executed. North Korea is just chomping at the bit to annihilate South Korea and the troops of the 2nd ID.
RUSSIA TO DITCH THE DOLLAR FOR RUBLE Russia, North Korea Agree to Settle Payments in Rubles in Trade Pact. MOSCOW, March 28 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and North Korea have signed a new protocol to transition to using the ruble for payments between the two countries as part of an effort to boost annual bilateral trade to $1 billion by 2020, Russia's Far East Development Ministry said Friday. The announcement came as Russian officials have expressed a desire to explore new markets for the country's businesses, following the introduction of sanctions by the West in reaction to Moscow's stance over Crimea. Russian leaders have simultaneously reassured international investors the country remains open for business, and there are no plans to restrict international commerce. The protocol announced Friday came following a visit of a Russian delegation to the Asian country for a meeting of a standing bilateral commission, timed to mark the 65th anniversary of a cooperation agreement between the Soviet Union and North K ...
ADVOCACY OF ATHEISM - The advocacy of atheism by some of the more violent exponents of the French Revolution, the subsequent militancy of Marxist-Leninist atheism, and prominence of atheism in totalitarian states formed in the 20th century is often cited in critical assessments of the implications of atheism. In his Reflections on the Revolution in France, Burke railed against "atheistical fanaticism". The 1937 papal encyclical Divini Redemptoris denounced the atheism of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin, which was later influential in the establishment of state atheism across Eastern Europe and elsewhere, including Mao Zedong's China, Communist North Korea and Pol Pot's Cambodia. Critics of atheism often associate the actions of 20th-century state atheism with broader atheism in their critiques. Various poets, novelists and lay theologians have also criticized atheism, among them G. K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis. A maxim popularly attributed to Chesterton holds that "He who does not believe in God will ...
From 1978 - 1987 I served our country in defense against communism and the Soviet Union in particular. At any moment, we could have destroyed the world together over 7,000 times with our nuclear stockpiles. This was a time to be strong and powerful, not weak and timid like Obama now has us. When we became "allies" with Russia after the fall of the USSR, I said then that we cannot trust them. My concern has come to fruition with Vladimir Putin now "annexing" sovereign Balkan states into the old USSR configuration. YOU SHOULD BE TREMBLING SCARED RIGHT NOW! If Putin takes the Ukraine, he will have under his control ALL OF THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THAT REGION! It will be as if the USSR never collapsed. Our defense against a nuclear strike by Putin or Iran (his Bosom Buddies along with North Korea) was severely threatened when our ignorant President Obama took the missile defense system out of Poland. RUSSIA IS NOT OUR FRIEND OBAMA! PUT THE *** MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM BACK INTO POLAND AND BRING THE UKRAINE ...
The more I read and go over the last years worth of World activities the more this makes sense! The U.S is already at War with Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, China... Here is why I say this! 2013: North Korea declares war on U.S! North korea is Russias counter part... Iran starts smuggling arms! China prepares war with Japan. Syria uses chemical weapons, and Russia declares war on Ukraine and is trying to reform Soviet Union... Do not let the Press lie... We are at War, and though no bombs have been dropped it will soon... Brace your self and your family... Tell Washington it is time to re enforce our millitary... And Remember B.c North Korea has declared war on us... And China is about to start a War with Japan, and Iran is building Navy mock ships... Welcome to the NEW Cold War
Now, I know some folks are not going to like what I am going to point out but both the facts and history support what I am about to note. First off, I am not going to be an Obama apologist. Secondly, the Obama administration's empty sabre rattling with Russia is nothing different that what we have see with previous administrations. The fact is, before Obama, we saw both North Korea and Iran flourish under the Bush administration. Just as we saw China's military flourish under Clinton's. As a matter of fact, an honest student of history will recognize that Putin had a fair amount of contempt and disrespect for Bush. No, some of us don't suffer from a convenient partisan induced political dementia. Putin started openly strategizing long before Obama came onto the scene. It doesn't take much research to see that he had expressed his ambitions for a revived Soviet Union about a decade ago (if not longer). And the fact is, if Obama stepped down as President today and we put Rand Paul or any other conservative ...

Crimea gives China a model to annex North Korea:scholar Reporter 2014-03-20 15:43 (GMT+8) Unidentified soldiers outside a Ukrainian military base 25 kilometers outside of the Crimean capital of Simferopol, March 18. (Photo/CNS) A South Korean scholar has told Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency anonymously that it is possible that China could annex North Korea by ousting the country's leader Kim Jong-un in a manner similar to the way in which Russia has intervened in Crimea. As both the United States and Russia are important partners for South Korea, the Yonhap report said it will eventually put Seoul into a very complicated situation if tensions were to escalate, causing a new Cold War between Moscow and Washington. Song Min-soon, a former foreign minister of South Korea, said Russia would never have been able to invade Crimea if Ukraine had not give up its nuclear weapons after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. For this reason, it will become harder ...
Should the Soviet Union be reconstituted as a true super power to balance an ever more powerful China? Small, but deadly, North Korea could benefit by playing both sides as a King maker. Japan could be a bargaining chip as we are unlikely to come to their defense any longer.
A Flower Of Unification In the summer of 1989 Pyongyang was hosting a lavish international event - the 13th World Festival of Youth and Students. Such festivals were essentially gatherings of young left-leaning intellectuals and artists, heavily subsidized by the Soviet Union and the Communist bloc. The Pyongyang festival was meant to be a symbolic reaction to the Olympic Games, which had been successfully hosted by South Korea in 1988. (In those days North Korea still tried hard to compete with the South.) That summer, North Koreans were exposed to a great number of happenings and personalities, but none left as much an impression as a young girl named Im Su-gyong. Im Su-gyong was a student of Hankook University of Foreign Studies and also an activist from the National Council of Student Representatives, a left-leaning, nationalistic, and generally pro-Northern students' organization in Seoul. During that era, North Korean sympathizers played an important and even decisive role in the South Korean studen ...
162-word summary on the Korean War from "UFOs ETs and Alien Abductions" written by Don Donderi. On June 25, 1950, Communist North Korea attacked South Korea. Within weeks the North Koreans overran most of South Korea except a beachhead around the southern port city of Busan, held by the South Koreans with the help of American troops rushed in from the occupation forces in Japan. The Soviet Union made a political error by boycotting a UN Security Council meeting, and the UN passed a resolution condemning the invasion and calling on other governments to support the South Koreans. A surprise American amphibious landing at Incheon, near South Korea’s capital, Seoul, returned the initiative to the Allies who surged through North Korea all the way to the Yalu River, the border with Communist China. The Allies were driven back by Chinese Communist troops to roughly the 38th parallel, the prewar boundary between the two Koreas. An armistice in 1953 brought the fighting to a halt, but there is no peace treaty an ...
The 10-Point. Gerard Baker Editor in Chief of The Wall Street Journal Good morning, Crimean Blowback The U.S. kept up a war of words with Russian President Vladimir Putin in hopes that he might back down over Ukraine. Despite the tough rhetoric out of many capitals, we report that moves to isolate Russia over its actions could have severe consequences for the West. Our coverage maps out Russia's economic entanglements with Europe, which have become entrenched since the Soviet Union's collapse. Any move to substantially curtail these ties would risk major economic damage to both sides across a range of sectors—from energy to transportation and finance. Already, Russia's incursion has imperiled some of the Obama administration's most important initiatives, including those to curb Syria's civil war and the nuclear programs of Iran and North Korea. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pledged $1 billion to Ukraine in a bid to help the country with its economic and energy crises while it seeks a lar ...
Since the mid-1990s, when fuel stopped flowing from the defunct Soviet Union to North Korea, the famously hermetic country has descended into darkness.

OPINIONS IN BRIEF/ The Patriot Post Columnist Jonah Goldberg: "In its opening video for the Olympic Games, NBC's producers drained the thesaurus of flattering terms devoid of moral content: 'The empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint; the revolution that birthed one of modern history's pivotal experiments. But if politics has long shaped our sense of who they are, it's passion that endures.' ... By the time Western intellectuals ... were lavishing praise on the Soviet Union as the greatest experiment in the world, Joseph Stalin was corralling millions of his own people into slavery. Not metaphorical slavery, but real slavery complete with systematized torture, rape and starvation. ... Imagine if instead of Sochi these games were in Germany, and suppose the organizers floated out the swastika while NBC talked of the 'pivotal experiment' of Nazism. Imagine the controversy. But when the hammer and sickle float by, there's no outrage. There is only the evil of banality." * Columnist Charles *** . ...

Since when did our children become property of the state? We thought that only communist regimes such as the old Soviet Union, China, and North Korea claimed that children are the property of the state.
The greatest foreign policy tragedy of the last 25 years is not, as many conjecture, our misadventures into Iraq and Afghanistan, the Syrian debacle (as bad as that is), letting North Korea's megalomaniacal nut-balls get nukes, letting the Islamo-fascists in Pakistan get nukes, or even letting theocratic Iran get to the precipice of a nuke. The greatest tragedy, blunder, colossal misstep was not completely disarming the Soviet Union after its collapse in late December, 1991. We sent investment bankers into Moscow, instead of NATO troops. We should have decommissioned the entire Soviet nuclear arsenal as the price of peace, bailouts, and wholesale restructuring. Now, Putin has his nukes, his oil, his Olympics, and the cult of personality that allows him to openly spit venom at the U.S. while wantonly discriminating against *** and other minorities. I blame the weak and indecisive George Bush, Sr. for this failure to properly end the war. He clearly did not understand a lick of modern history. When the U.S ...
When Japan surrendered to the Allies on August 15, 1945, U.S. president Truman and Soviet leader Stalin agreed that the U.S. would temporarily act as trustee for the southern half of Korea and the Soviet Union would act as trustee for the northern half. This temporary measure became permanent in 1948 when North Korea declared itself an independent sovereign state under a Communist system.
The Korean War (25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953)[29][a][31] was a war between the Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), at one time supported by the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. It was primarily…
Barbara Ehrenreich: "it’s easy to see positive thinking as a uniquely American form of naïveté, but it is neither uniquely American nor endearingly naïve. In vastly different settings, positive thinking has been a tool of political repression worldwide. . . . In the Soviet Union, as in the Eastern European states and North Korea, the censors required upbeat art, books, and films, meaning upbeat heroes, plots about fulfilling production quotas, and endings promising a glorious revolutionary future. . . . The penalties for negative thinking were real. Not to be positive and optimistic was to be ‘defeatist’. . . . Accusing someone of spreading defeatism condemned him to several years in Stalinist camps."
North Korea will fall just like the collapse of the Soviet Union and become just a 'Unified Korea'
"Swift said he believed military collaboration with China was “bringing us closer” to a naval understanding similar to that which existed between the US and the Soviet Union to prevent conflict at sea during the Cold War." He said that then immediately said there is no similarity between the Cold War and modern Chinese US relations and wanted to stress this thought. Well last I checked china is in the middle of a power grab no matter if they deserve it or not, and it's coincidentally enough right in the middle of two allies we are sworn to protect japan and South Korea. Further it would seem the no fly zone serves to curve the potential of UAS and other aircraft in regard to North Korea from the pacific theater. And to top it all off tentative war games have already begun no matter how you look at it they are steering ships in front of ships tailing planes in their new airspace. It's that's ok what's Miley Cyrus up to these days can I get some more football or maybe an update on the newest celebs -.-

Some interesting thoughts on history and how we tend to ignore it. The Russians Invaded Afghanistan, they were locked in a war there for over ten years. It broke their economy so much so that the Cold War ended, and they left with nothing to show for it. Circa not even twenty years later, we invade Afghanistan, and we are there now more than twelve years and it is destroying our economy, (part of the problem). If the cold hearted Soviet Union couldn't win that war, when they could care less about people or world opinion, what possible made us think we could? We all know the result. Lends credence to all those war for profit conspiracies don't you think? In the 1990's we paid North Korea to dismantle its Nuclear Weapons Systems, within five years they told us to screw off and developed not only weapons but long range delivery systems. Today we are doing exactly the same thing with Iran, who is coached by North Korea. What possibly makes us think that a state that sponsors every terrorist organization that ...
So, two people are both assaulted horrifically by a third party and their basic human rights are violated in terrible ways. They meet years later fall in love and have two beautiful children who, as they grow, are forced to suffer the same horrors that their parents did at the hands of the same perpetrator. Clearly these children then carry the trauma of their parents and their hatred of the perpetrator as it would have been indoctrinated into them by the parents own attitudes and projections whilst raising them. In addition, they carry the fresh trauma and hatred for the same perpetrator from their own personal experience and so the pool of trauma, hatred and desensitization grows twofold. These two children then grow up and meet two other people from the same background and repeat the process; now the pool of trauma, hatred and desensitization is trebled. And so on. Start this process with a whole nation of traumatized, desensitized and alienated people and what do you get? North Korea!! We, the people ...
DHL: DHL Express is a division of the German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL providing international express mail services. Deutsche Post is the world's largest logistics company operating around the world. DHL is a world market leader in sea and air mail. Originally founded in 1969 to deliver documents between San Francisco and Honolulu, the company expanded its service throughout the world by the late 1970s. The company was primarily interested in offshore and inter-continental deliveries, but the success of FedEx prompted their own intra-U.S. expansion starting in 1983. DHL aggressively expanded to countries that could not be served by any other delivery service, including the Soviet Union, Eastern Bloc, Iraq, Iran, China, Vietnam and North Korea.
Happy Veteran's Day: Very grateful for all the people who have fought in our wars and served in our military. Politicians have started all our conflicts but our soldiers are the ones who have finished them. While we are still looking at a North Korea, an authoritarian 'Communist' Vietnam, and a science fiction 'democracy' called Iraq- we are no longer looking at a German Europe or a Soviet Union. That we have a political clique in this country that has squandered the sacrifice of our military people in war and 'peace' for nearly a century in no cheapens the gift that those vets have given us. “Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear” -George Orwell
A Veterans Day STORY. For too many Americans, November 11th signals “that 3-day weekend before Thanksgiving.” Others know it’s Veterans Day and feel it deeply. But for many people, Veterans Day is a vague and fuzzy concept, lacking a compelling memory; a story, a visual aid; something tactile to focus on. Those are the ones you want to hand a piece of candy to. A couple of weeks before Veterans Day buy a bag of those tiny Tootsie Rolls, the ones called Midgees. Put some in your pocket and begin handing them out, along with this story: After World War II, the Korean Peninsula was divided into the communist North and the democratic South. While South Korea was recovering and rebuilding, North Korea was arming to the teeth, receiving countless tons of weapons, munitions and war supplies — and encouragement to use them — from Mao’s China and Stalin’s Soviet Union. In June of 1950, North Korea invaded the lightly-defended South with infantry, tanks and artillery, nearly rolling up the entire coun ...
Portrait of the NSA: No detail to small to watch by Ewen MacAskill, The Guardian Barack Obama hailed United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon as a “good friend” after the two had sat down in the White House in April to discuss the issues of the day: Syria and alleged chemical weapons attacks, North Korea, Israel-Palestine, and climate change. But long before Ban’s limousine had even passed through the White House gates for the meeting, the US government knew what the secretary general was going to talk about, courtesy of the world’s biggest eavesdropping organization, the National Security Agency. One NSA document – leaked to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden just a month after the meeting and reported in partnership with the New York Times – boasts how the spy agency had gained “access to UN secretary general talking points prior to meeting with Potus” (president of the United States). The White House declined to comment on whether Obama had read the talking points in advan ...
For the second time in less than a year, the US Army's THAAD system was tested again - last month at a remote Pacific atoll. This second test, was a success as was a test earlier this year. The anti-ballistic missile system is based at Ft. Bliss, Tx where the 11th Air Defense Brigade is tasked with the THAAD mission. [For people who are curious, both tests have been reported in the national media, including the mediocre local rag - the El Paso Times). THAAD, short for Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (at one time referred to as Theater High Altitude Air Defense system - was not a politically correct term - in the late 80s and early 1990s - since it reminded everyone that the THAAD system as in fact very close to violating the 1972 ABM Treaty with the Soviet Union). In the post-Cold War environment, however, and given the number of "rogue nations" - like North Korea -- who possess - or are developing missiles capable of inter-continental ranges - US policy makers and the developed nations have winked a ...
Radosh on unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers: The very subtitle of his book, in which he refers to himself as an “American dissident,” is an insult to all the real dissidents of the former Soviet Union, today’s Communist Cuba, or today’s China, all of whom suffered greatly and still suffer today in the little Gulags that still exist, or are hardly little, if one includes North Korea. Bill Ayers is welcomed on major network TV programs, hardly a fate any real dissident ever experienced.

October 7th History Tidbit: 1913 Henry Ford’s entire Highland Park automobile factory is run on a continuously moving assembly line for the first time when the chassis is pulled past workers using a motor and rope, allowing the factory to cut man-hours required to assemble one “Model T” from 12 ½ hours to six, and within the next year, to 93 man-minutes. Eventually, thanks to improvements in the moving assembly line, the company is producing one Model T every 24 seconds, allowing Ford to sell the car for below $300, versus its debut price of $850...1918 Without throwing a single pass, the Georgia Tech football team defeats Cumberland College 222-0, having carried the ball 978 yards...1950 U.S.-led United Nations forces cross the 38th parallel and enter North Korea...1960 In their second of four televised debates, Vice President Richard Nixon and Democratic Senator John F.

A few self-evident truths, revisited: * The Constitution means what it says. PERIOD. Anyone who says it's a "living document" really means that the Constitution is getting in the way of their personal agenda. (Hear that, Mr. Obama?) *Any REASONABLY informed citizen can understand the fundamental points of the Constitution; a law degree is not required to understand the essentials of what government is and is not permitted to do. (The public is not collectively stupid, although that point could be argued at times.) *The First Amendment does NOT mean "We hereby declare war on any public mention of God or any reference to our Judeo-Christian heritage." (Much as the ACLU and other "rights" organizations would have you believe.) *Free enterprise is FAIRER and MORE EFFICIENT and produces a HIGHER standard of living than a government-controlled economy ever will. The WORLDWIDE EVIDENCE is so overwhelming that this case should be considered closed. (North Korea, the old Soviet Union, and mainland China come immed ...
In 1952, North Korea, the Soviet Union, and China fabricated evidence that the U.S. had employed biological warfare by spreading hemorrhagic smallpox. As Sheila Jager chronicles in “Brothers at War” (Norton & Co., 2013), that now-admitted hoax was “yet another example of . . . how a communist regime promoted lies over truths by subordinating science to politics. It was not simply the cynicism of the untruths that was unsettling, but the darker power of what those untruths revealed about the enemy”. The New York Times opined: “The alarming thing is the demonstration that the power we are fighting is not simply [an] . . . aggressive empire on the make, it is the power of evil. It could be said of the ruling mind in Russia that it has lost the sense of truth. To this mind, anything it desires is good, and any lie is truth that serves its end.” House Repugnicans have voted to repeal and/or de-fund “ObamaCare” 42 times, despite ever-accumulating evidence of its genuine efficacy. Because th ...
As of 2012, nuclear power in Pakistan is provided by 3 licensed-commercial nuclear power plants.[1] Pakistan is the first Muslim country in the world to construct and operate civil nuclear power plants.[2] The Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC), the scientific and nuclear governmental agency, is solely responsible for operating these power plants.[3] As of 2012, the electricity generated by commercial nuclear power plants constitutes roughly ~3.6% of electricity generated in Pakistan, compared to ~62% from fossil fuel, ~33% from hydroelectric power and ~0.3% from Coal electricity.[4][5] Pakistan is one of the four nuclear armed states (along with India, Israel, and North Korea) that is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty but is a member in good standing of the International Atomic Energy Agency.[6][7][8] Professor (and later Nobel laureate) Abdus Salam, as Science Advisor to the President, persuaded President Ayub Khan, to establish Pakistan's first commercial nuclear power reactor, ...
If Japan or the Soviet Union with their advance technology and huge engineering base ( and the US with Three Mile Island), could not maintain the safety of their reactors, how are North Korea, Pakistan, England, France, Armenia, India, Israel, and Canada given the likelihood of some large natural catastrophe or human error (Chernobyl) eventually striking one of the many proliferating nuclear reactors? Is Japan after selling Turkey nuclear reactors going to honor the commitment and be able to come to the rescue if the earthquake prone Turkey has a nuclear disaster like Japan? Japan and Russia (Ukraine) cannot even contain their own nuclear disasters or manage their wastes without expanding debt and waste of human resources. When is this scam of nuclear energy going to finally become evident to the world?
ONE DIMENSIONAL MAN IS A PRODUCT OF MARXISM RATHER THAN OF SO CALLED CAPITALISM. One of the pretenses… aka, lies…. of Marxism was that it was more moral, and that it allowed a fuller development of man, that Capitalism produced One Dimensional Man. Many were led to Marxism and Communism by their assertions of putting man on a higher moral plane. Some told us that this Marx, the Young Marx, was different from the Marx of Lenin and Stalin and Mao, was more sensitive, more thoughtful….but don’t look at the personal life of Marx, which was despicable, like that of Rousseau. This Young philosophical Marx, not merely economic, supposedly teaches us true humanity, which, we are told, cannot be achieved under capitalism, which makes man into a mere tool, and strips man of all his dimensional possibilities. Man under capitalism is a mere tool, fitted to but one purpose, which denies and represses his humanity. Tell that to the tens of millions who perished in the GULAGs of the Soviet Union and the Ref ...
Why should the Capitalists not dislike and kill Stalin 51 million times ? In August 1939, Stalin entered into a non- aggression pact with Nazi Germany, but Germany later violated the agreement and launched a massive invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941. Despite heavy human and territorial losses, Soviet forces managed to halt the Nazi incursion after the decisive battles of Moscow and Stalingrad. After defeating the Axis powers on the Eastern Front, the Red Army captured Berlin in May 1945, effectively ending the war in Europe for the Allies. The Soviet Union subsequently emerged as one of two recognized world superpowers, the other being the United States. The Yalta and Potsdam Conferences established communist governments in the Eastern Bloc countries as buffer states , which Stalin deemed necessary in case of another invasion. He also fostered close relations with Mao Zedong in China and Kim Il-sung in North Korea. A country could be an western colony , but instead it became wortld power by dint o ...
Following World War II ‘the Cold War’ between US and Soviet Union was confrontation of interests’. US and USSR clashed, both being continent size powers having different political systems with decentralized and liberal government in US and centralized and authoritarian government in USSR. US are a capitalist power. Soviets are Marxist power. US lie in North American continent which is naturally protected by an ocean. It developed heavy defense undisturbed. Russia had history of invasions. It developed heavy defense in defense. All other countries were weakened by the WWII. US have a monopoly on atomic weapons. Soviets maintain largest army in the world. Each distrusted the other. Cold War started. From Stettin to Trieste an "iron curtain" was established by USSR. US announced ‘Truman Doctrine’ to contain Communism all over the world. Wartime ‘X’ telegram from George Kennan defined Soviets as economic and political threat. US defined the Soviets threat as a military threat and called for h .. ...

The Associated Press has published a powerful news article by reporter Robert Burns. It quotes a suppressed Pentagon Report describing the efforts to account for thousands of missing soldiers in foreign wars as inept, mismanaged and wasteful. AP obtained the internal study, along with two internal memos describing the decision to bury the report. According to the article, the head of the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office, DPMO, said last month in a public forum that the U.S. Government has no evidence that U.S. Servicemen taken prisoner in North Korea during the 1950-1953 war were later moved to the former Soviet Union against their will and never returned. Washington made a detailed case in writing to Moscow in 1993 that such transfers did happen, and AP has obtained a videotape produced by U.S. officials and given to the Russians at that time to support the U.S. case.

IN RESPONSE TO EVENTS IN EGYPT Democracy is not merely a matter of elections, however free and fair; elections are a means to a far greater end. Despotic regimes are seldom deposed by democratic means. Democracy means justice, legal equality, freedom of expression, of organization, of religion and of political action; it means freedoms secured for minorities rather than the unilateral, interest-driven erosion of personal freedoms by an electoral majority. In the words of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg, democracy means a goverment of the people, by the people, for the people. Western reservations with regard to the unfolding events in Egypt is the product of a spineless adherence to procedure instead of principle. Legality should serve the interests of morality, but Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, North Korea, China and Turkmenistan (to name but a few) all demonstrate how legality can but fundamentally opposed to moral and democratic values. What has recently occured in Egypt is envigoratingly encouraging. ...
If I said it, you'd label me something. But it's the Economist :D Indeed, it is suggested, Marx was right about a good many things—about a lot of what is wrong with capitalism, for instance, about globalisation and international markets, about the business cycle, about the way economics shapes ideas. Marx was prescient; that word keeps coming up. By all means discard communism as practised in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe (and China, North Korea, Cuba and in fact wherever it has been practised). But please don't discard Marx.
If you reside in certain countries, the United States cannot pay your Social Security benefits. The U.S. Department of Treasury prohibits sending payments to two countries: Cuba and North Korea. If you do live in one of these countries, you can receive all back payments after you leave there. Social Security Administration rules also prohibit sending payments to Vietnam, Cambodia and parts of the former Soviet Union. Rules for Non-U.S. Citizens If you are not a citizen of the United States, but receive Social Security benefits, you will continue to receive your benefits no matter how long you stay outside of the U.S. only if you reside in one of a specific group of countries. In certain other countries, you will stop receiving benefits after residing outside the U.S. for six months. A list of these countries is on the Social Security Administration's website. In addition, if you are not a U.S. citizen and you reside in Cuba or North Korea, you cannot receive any Social Security payments while you live in ...
Last week, Anglican Mainstream sent out an email asking their supporter base for £5 each to put out a full page advert in the Times yesterday. Judging by the dimensions of the ad, they obviously didn't raise enough. It's also a bit of a let-down given the language used in the email. Here's a sample: *** marriage is an ideological mirage. We need to learn the lessons from other nations, such as Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Maoist China, Cambodia and North Korea who forced their people to live out ideologies that flew in face of reality." They also set up a little site at:
I was thinking. I know, some of you are doubting that possibility. But, seriously, stay with me on this one. What the world needs is another Soviet Union. Or Fascist Italy. Or Nazi Germany. Or another Pol Pot Cambodia. Why, you may ask? Because people today have no idea what true tyranny or a true dictator is. During the above named periods, we could see, nakedly, the horror of those realities. The death camps, the political prisons, the citizenry living in terror. It was there, blatantly open. What do we have today? Some vague hints about North Korea being reported by the tin foil hat types. The same types who are telling us about the FEMA camps, with the same credibility. I am not wishing for a return to that *** only for a real example of where the "47%" wish us to sprint to. We have already played this game, kiddoes. It ended up costing a World War, millions of lives, trillions of dollars. Pick up a history book, for God's sake. It's right there. Seriously, and with no attempt at ...
A Short History Lesson In the years before WWII, Vietnam was ruled by the French.  This colony was part of what was known as French Indochina.  The communist forces in Vietnam led by *** Chi Minh began a long battle for control against the French.  In 1944-45, Eastern Europe was "communized" by the Soviet Union.  China over threw its Nationalist government and became communist in 1949.  The Korean War was fought to a draw in 1953,leaving North Korea communist but preserving pro-western South KoreaFidel Castro established a communist state inCuba.  Communism, a form of government that takes away the freedoms and rights of the people it governs, was dangerously sweeping across Europe and Asia. The communist Chinese government began funneling captured U.S. weapons used in the Korean War, to the communist Viet Minh troops in Vietnam to battle the French.  As a result, in 1955, France gave up its Indochinese Colonies at a peace conference in Geneva Switzerland.  Part of the peace agreement caused V ...
South Korea AND UGANDA SEAL A MEMORANDUM OF CO-OPERATION Uganda and South Korea have signed a memorandum of cooperation. The ceremony took place today at the Blue Building, South Korea’s seat of power in the capital Seoul. The signing ceremony was witnessed by President Yoweri Museveni and his host PRESIDENT Guen Park. Speaking at a luncheon hosted in his honour, President Museveni hailed the leaders of South Korea for transforming a backward state into a modern one. He also recognized the contribution of General Park Chung Hee, father to the current President, for laying a strong foundation for South Korea. President Museveni explained that it was his first visit to South Korea because during the decolonization of Africa, the Eastern Bloc which included North Korea, Cuba, China and the former Soviet Union, helped the African countries to fight the colonizing nations of the West. He, however, noted that after independence, many African countries including Uganda, established good relationship and cooper ...

Congress`s `Bharat Nirman'.This Sonia govt.is spending taxpayers' money to promote some `leaders' and this govt`s supposed achievements,it is a practice they copied from the Soviet Union, Maoist China and North Korea. It reached its apogee during the Emergency when Indira Gandhi was projected (Kim Il Sung style) as the 'great leader' and her son Sanjay as the little great leader.They are spreading half truths,claiming credit for private sector`s acheivements (Tele-Density).But things have changed a lot now,due to internet people are much aware & even know the dark truths of `family',what congress gains by splurging people`s money will be known sooner.

President Obama's critics have pounced on his use of the phrase "red line" to urge military intervention in Syria. They argue, in the words of Sens. John Mccain and Lindsey Graham, that the "credibility of the United States is on the line." Presumably they mean that Iran, North Korea and others are watching. Recall how another American president dealt with a crisis of credibility. In 1983, just after the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon, Ronald Reagan was certain that staying involved militarily was "central to our credibility on a global scale" and "vital to world peace." Credibility concerns were paramount during the Cold War. Policymakers feared that the Soviet Union would interpret U.S. vacillation in Lebanon as a sign of weakness and an invitation for Soviet aggression. Secretary of State George Shultz warned that if the United States refused to stand fast, "I shudder to think what kind of world of anarchy and danger our children will inherit." But a few months later Reagan withdrew, "r ...
M62 is a Soviet built Diesel-electric locomotive for heavy freight trains, exported to many Eastern Bloc countries as well as to Cuba, North Korea and Mongolia. Beside the single locomotive M62 also twin versions 2M62 and triple versions 3M62 have been built. The first few prototypes of this heavy freight locomotive were ready in 1964 and their first destination outside the Soviet Union was Hungary. (From Wikipedia)

Diplomatic Corps: The DCU Government has issued a brief statement, saying of its concern over the potential of a new conflict developing on the Korean Peninsula as North Korea threatens with cold-war rhetoric that it has torn up the ceasefire agreement signed more than 60 years ago that has led to an uneasy peace for both North & South, by the proxy war that the US and Soviet Union participated in. The DCU is also concerned of the potential that the North will carry out an arms race ultimatum in defiance and "defense" against United Nations forces stationed in the peninsula. The Supreme Commander has stated that with other domestic problems occuring around the world, it would be "foolish, misguided and wholly naive to rely on the United State's reassurance to protect the UN allies in the South without leading to a regional nuclear disaster" He also stated that "everything should be done to give the North the chance to 'cool down', but also to communicate that a nuclear war in the region would be disastero ...

THIS WAS THE WINK OBAMA GAVE TO RUSSIAN PUTIN. Obama to Further Disarm US Nuclear Weaponry Tuesday, 26 Feb 2013 01:11 PM By David Yonkman : President Barack Obama is expected to soon issue a new directive on his efforts to drastically reduce U.S. nuclear forces. It would be the latest marker in his stated goal of eliminating such weapons worldwide. His administration intends to reduce the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal from current levels of more than 1,700 warheads to an estimated 1,000, according to published reports. Sources say the president was prepared to make such an announcement in his Feb. 12 State of the Union address, but it was delayed after North Korea conducted its third nuclear test earlier that day. The unilateral drawdown is part of a long-term policy shift from the Cold War legacy of a nuclear arms posture that pitted the United States against the former Soviet Union. The Obama administration is now focused on the prevention of nuclear proliferation and terrorism using minimal U.S. reso ...
2-16-2013 Doing a Reagan on North Korea Have we waged the wrong war against North Korea? Then, can our new President Park Geun-hye redirect our strategy and finish that feral beast once and for all? These are complicated questions but the ghost of one “complicated simple” man may beg to answer from his grave: Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States who is credited with giving the Soviet Union a final push toward the brink of collapse during his 1981-1989 reign. We have done virtually everything possible to deal with North Korea, which has brought itself closer to becoming a nuclear state with its recent third underground test. For 10 years under Presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, we employed the “sunshine policy” of engaging the North in the hope of leading it to an “in-stage,” assisted death. It didn’t. President Lee Myung-bak has applied a rule of reciprocity in dealing with the North. But this has obviously not worked. We may as well feel we have run out of options b ...

The Real Anti-Access Story Written on : Jan 17, 2013 During the Cold War, the Soviet Union had a strong political incentive to maximize diffusion of its military capabilities. Proxies with Soviet technology could fight the United States and its proxies on their own. Consequently, states from North Korea to Vietnam to Cuba to Syria, Iraq, and Egypt gained access to the many of the most advanced Soviet fighter, submarine, and missile systems. Often, these systems overwhelmed the capacity of recipients, with buyers lacking the ability to put pilots in planes, sailors in subs, and mechanics in either. Nevertheless, these systems still forced the United States to act cautiously; the combination of a couple Nanuchka class missile boats, some Foxtrot subs, a few MiG-23s and a reasonably sophisticated air defense system could give the US Navy or Air Force a bad day. Russia doesn’t see much of an upside in this kind of diffusion today. States get the equipment they can pay for, without political subsidy . Chin . ...
America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Totalitarian Society Posted by End Fear on January 8, 2013 at 7:03pm Activist Post | January 8, 2013 If someone were to ask you for an example of a “totalitarian society”, how would you respond? Most Americans would probably think of horribly repressive regimes such as the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, East Germany or North Korea, but the truth is that there is one society that has far more rules and regulations than any of those societies ever dreamed of having. In the United States today, our lives are governed by literally millions of laws, rules and regulations that govern even the smallest details of our lives; and more laws, rules and regulations are constantly being added. On January 1st, thousands of restrictive new laws went into effect all over America, but most Americans have become so accustomed to the matrix of control that has been constructed all around them that it does not even bother them when even more rules and re .. ...
Bahria Town authorities have informed us that they are going to ENFORCE every single shop and commercial outlet to have the same shop sign-age for every outlet in their jurisdiction. We told them that we would change our shop sign and logo IF and WHEN they force McDonald's to abandon their Golden Arches. Clearly the idea of liberty and the notion of freedom is utterly alien to our kind. This notion of forcing every outlet to look the same is something out of North Korea, Stalin's Soviet Union or Mao's China. Utterly repugnant and against the very idea of FREEDOM. alas, so typical of our sick mindset.
The Biggest Threats To America's Future Success 1) Our national debt: We're already paying out far more money than we're taking in, our politicians don't have any sort of feasible plan to pay for what we've already spent, and there's no way we can possibly pay out all the money the government currently owes for entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Obamacare. 2) Weapons of mass destruction going off in American cities: It's ironic that so much of the world once lived in fear of a nuclear exchange between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union may have been an "Evil Empire," but at least the leaders were rational. Can we say the same about Pakistan? Maybe. For the moment. How about North Korea? Absolutely not. What about Iran? No way -- and if Iran gets nukes, another half dozen, barely functional Middle Eastern nations will soon follow it into the nuclear club. 3) A cultural apocalypse: There is a plethora of different threats preying on the supports that kee ...
David Quinn exposes our secret links to the Soviet Union, Mao, North Korea and Pol Pot.
Yesterday before I watched Ah Boys to Men I saw a trailer for the remake of Red Dawn and I have to ask: North Korea taking over the United States? No. Just no. In the Original Film it makes sense because it was the Soviet Union, the Cubans and the Nicaraguans that took over the States. I'm sorry that there is no way that North Korea would take over the Unites States.
It's the type of displays that we associate with the Soviet Union, North Korea and Nazi Germany.
Worth the Read: Currently, there are at least five states worth moving to that still believe in the individual, rather than the state: Alabama, Colorado, Montana, Washington, and Wyoming. They all exercised their 10th Amendment right today and the voters of those states "nullified" ObamaCare. "We The People," are the final line of defense against an oppressive government whether it is run by Big Government Dems or Reps. It's not entirely about Obama, but he is the current CEO of Big Government, Inc. As a patriotic citizen of this country, lover of individual liberty and Equal Opportunity rather than equal outcomes (which really means everyone is equally poor, living in government ghettos with government issued housing and government issued cheese, as was the case in the old Soviet Union and is the case today in Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, etc.), we have a duty to ourselves and everyone we care for to stand up for individual achievement and a free market system that is a meritocracy. To those willing to ...

Saw this, had to post it: What if Hitler had won the war? 1 - No USSR (the Soviet government murdered millions of its own people during its 70 year reign - to study this topic read the writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn; Hitler would have liberated the USSR, though taking large parts of its Western region for lebensraum, "living space") 2 - No Cold War (because there would be no USSR) 3 - No Communist Eastern Europe/Iron Curtain (when WWII ended, Eastern Europe fell to Communism - this was part of Stalin's spoils of war) 4 - No Red China and Mao's subsequent killing of 40 - 60 million Chinese (the USSR created favorable conditions for Mao's Communists which ultimately led to Mao's victory over Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists in 1949, thus if no USSR, no Mao victory) 5 - No Communist North Vietnam (both the Soviet Union and Red China aided *** Chi Minh) 6 - No Communist Cambodia and Pol Pot's slaughter of 2 million Cambodians (Red China aided Pol Pot) 7 - No dividing Korea into North Korea & South Korea (th ...
The trailer for the new Red Dawn movie with the Leann Rimes version of the Star Spangled Banner song looks cool. I will probably go and see it when it comes out later this month. I was 10 yrs old when the original came out in 1984, and I loved that movie. This one probably won't be as good, they substituted the Soviet Union for North Korea for obvious reasons, since the Soviet Union is no longer in existence. should be a good movie overall though.
From www.radiorodgers.com Timeless wisdom from the timeless Burt Prelutsky ... "One of the problems with Democrats is that they still believe, as they did during the frostiest days of the Cold War, that a unilaterally disarmed America sets an example that will be copied by our enemies. It was idiotic when our enemy was the Soviet Union, an Evil Empire that had already gobbled up all of Eastern Europe, and it is no less idiotic when we have to deal with enemies in North Korea, the Islamic world and a Russia governed by a neo-Stalinist like Vladimir Putin, who learned everything he knows about diplomacy while heading up the KGB."
All communist comrades, Lenin, Starlin, Mao, or Kim Jung Il, had one thing in common: They all started out by spreading hostile propaganda against the capitalist system, and used people who were not financially doing well to overthrow the system and established their so-called PEOPLE'S POWER, and eventually became dictators themselves. Don't we forget how those working class people, who were fooled and horribly treated by these dictators,ended up living in the former Soviet Union, China and North Korea.
Harvest If you are reading this you already know that I wrote a book this year – or at least gave it my best effort. But I also read a bunch of them and one of the best, and scariest, was The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. It’s a novel of North Korea – the first I have ever read – and while it was not what I would call an easy read it is the rare day when I don’t think about it. It is impossible for us – even in our most abject circumstances – to imagine life in so Orwellian a nightmare as North Korea. In October of 1939, as the world was descending into darkness, Winston Churchill described the Soviet Union as “. . . a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” For all the horror that Stalin visited upon the various states that made up the Soviet Union, North Korea is worse. The Soviet Union was the apotheosis of totalitarian darkness. But because of its vastness it was still possible for some to hide in the Siberian wastes, the Urals or the Caucasus or the northern forests ...
Before he became governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola always let the world know that he was a communist. That is yesterday’s ideology, even if North Korea and Cuba still latch on to the fragile and terminal gasps of the idea. Yet students of history know that communism saved capitalism after the Second World War. The welfare state enjoyed a rebirth when countries, especially those in Europe lying prostrate after the conflagrations, kindled a romance with the idea Marx and Lenin wrought. The liberal canons of democracy and free market became lost in the cloud when the ordinary citizen craved the heres and nows of food and shelter. The West, including the United States, strengthened the social buoy of the poor and vulnerable although the idea dated back to the years of German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck in the 19th century. That way, the countries kept the communists on the fringes while the Soviet Union glamorised the fantasy in the so-called Third world with champions like Cabral, Ortega, Lumumba and Castr ...

The Burning of the American Flag is not even popular in the Middle East. It is not people of the Islamic Faith that were burning the US Flag; it is the Fascist who wish to take power away from the new Presidents of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia. They are burning the US Flag claiming the threat of the spreading of American influence. Yeah; it is called Democracy; the US Flag has always been a symbol of Freedom. the Confederate Flag is a symbol of Slavery; along with the Flags of the Soviet Union and North Korea. Red China???
I often wonder why the whole US-Russian tension idea is always blamed on the Russians. We're the ones who supported the anti-Communists (Whites). The Communists (Reds) won and were'nt happy with the fact that we supported the White's. Over the next few years we hated the idea of Communism (I agree) and never looked at the Russian's view of the October Revolution. Even during World War II, tensions still flared. Even though the US and the Soviet Union were "allies", Russia was really fighting a "patriotic" war. (*Quick Fact*) In Russia, World War II is refered to as the Great Patriotic War. (*) The Cold War was when tensions were at a all time high. Even today the US-Russian difference can be seen. 98% of all war or other military/terrorism movies I have seen have placed Russia as the bad guy. Only the WWII movies were "Russian freindly". (Excluding the ones on the German perspective). So... Why Russia? Why not China with its even bigger and more powerful military? Why not North Korea and its Nuclear Arms? ...
Did you know the former Soviet Union and Nazi Germany had a conservative government. Today China and North Korea are conservative. It's pathetic these days that the Teabag Party racist and bigots are low information people who think they know anything, throwing their mythological beliefs down on other people with different beliefs - shall not judge. An old saying is to clean up your own back yard before lying about another persons back yard. Today's projection: Obama 305 Electoral votes, Romnut 223. Liberals are leading in the Senate and House races, also looking good in State races/governorship.
I have to get this off of my chest: Over the last few years, I've had people ask me to stop sending them e-mails critical of candidate/president Barack Hussein Obama. That's their right, and I have no problem with that. I even had one person point out to me during the 2008 election campaign that voting for McCain/Palin was just voting for an senile old full and an inexperienced young *** as a running mate. That person of course got around that by voting for an inexperienced young *** with a senile old fool as a running mate. What I refuse to tolerate, however, are those who complain that I criticize ObAmalek. To those people I would say that in Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Red China, Castro's Cuba, North Korea, et al, you couldn't criticize the leader. However, in the US, where I was born, and of which I am still a citizen, and in Israel, where I live, we are free to criticize our leaders and I will continue to do so when and as I see fit. Freedom of speech is a two-way street and not only for thos ...
Good news: we get to see Thor beat the crap out of Communist invaders! Chris Hemsworth, best known for his role as Thor, is playing the main character in Red Dawn. I never saw the original Red Dawn, but from what I've seen, can we call this Red Dawn by it's real name: Homefront? They swapped out the Soviet Union for North Korea (who are the villains in Homefront).
Well they're remaking Red Dawn. God awful camp movie built on a Soviet Union around the time it was already in the process of completely collapsing eternally. Total Recall makes an iota of sense to remake, in a world where Castro is dead, China is accepting free enterprise, and North Korea's leadership switch is still ambiguous, it's laughably irrelevant. Awful film, terrible remake, imagine how many starving children could be fed feeding money into such ridiculously unoriginal industrial schlock. The world's stupidity utterly astounds me.
Armstrong was commander of the Apollo 11 mission that made the first manned lunar landing on July 20, 1969. He had undergone heart surgery Aug. 8, three days after his 82nd birthday. His family said that Armstrong had died from post-surgery complications. "We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures,'' the family said in a statement. "Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend." PHOTOS: Neil Armstrong's life and career As he stepped off the lunar module and set foot on the moon's surface, he said "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,'' underscoring a centuries-old fantasy among human kind and a high point in the Cold War era space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. An estimated 500 million TV viewers watched the event, engrossed by the surreal, grainy black-and-white footage. Saturday, President Barack Obama hailed Armstrong as one of "the greatest American ...
Are we seeing a prelude to a type of "Obamacare Behavioral Health" certifications in order to work, own a home, or own a gun? You think we're kidding? "No fly" already exists right? How about "No gun"?, "No job"? RNN is reading way ahead and into some of Brandon Raub's Attorney comments here, who is the President of The Rutherford Institute and Lead Attorney for Brandon Raub. Why? We have a bit of indirect experience with dictatorships using psychiatry as a political weapon. Do a Google search on the use of psychiatry as a political weapon. You may get hits for the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, China, even Nazi Germany. Depends on how adept you are at Google queries.

Guy on PBS, The News Hour, Mickey Edwards, former member of Congress, just finished talking about a novel idea Congress-people, or anyone in gov't at whatever level, might do well to consider...America (read: community) first; party loyalty second. The way the GOP has gone lately (read: last 30 yrs or so, particularly the Tea Party caucus of late) you'd think they all thought we'd all be better off with a one-party system - THEIR party - like in Communist China or the Soviet Union of old. Maybe they should give North Korea a try.
Reading his book. What an incredible life. Arthur Blessitt: Cross walk On Christmas morning in 1969, Blessitt began his journey with the cross, walking from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. In August 1971, Blessitt began his journey around the world, beginning in Northern Ireland. He has carried the cross to all parts of the world including war-torn countries such as Lebanon and parts of Africa to pray for peace. During the Cold War, Blessitt carried his cross into the Soviet Union, through Russia, the Baltic States, Ukraine and other countries. He has carried the cross through such places as Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, China, South Africa, Lebanon, India, Antarctica, Palestine, Israel, Cuba, Libya, Yemen, Vietnam and Mongolia. During his walk around the world, Blessitt has held audience with numerous world and religious leaders including, Jimmy Carter, Billy Graham, Pope John Paul II, Yasser Arafat and Muammar al-Gaddafi and was arrested 24 times. On part of the crosswalk throu ...
America is not mention in the Bible and what will happen to it in the end times. From the book Hope For America by Greg Laurie, there are 3 possibilities that are mention. 1. America could be devastated by a nuclear war. 2. We could drastically decline as a world power. 3. We could experience a massive spiritual awakening that spreads across our country, and millions in our population would be swept up in the Rapture. Let explain number 1. As horrific a scenario as this might be, you simply can't dismiss it out of hand. We've had adversaries such as Russia and China for many years, but now we have rogue nations such as North Korea developing nuclear weapons. Iran is believed to be developing nuclear capability and has repeatedly threatened to wipe the nation of Israel off the map. They have threatened to use such weapons against the United States as well. What's more, there are nuclear weapons unaccounted for since the breakup of the Soviet Union. If one or more of those weapons ended up in the hands of a ...
The Aussies are not enjoying having less gold medals than us, but at least they've got a sense of humour about it. Some in the media have adopted "Team Oceania", which has an impressive four gold, 12 silver and 11 bronze medals. Other countries may like to follow suit and adopt the medals of their neighbours. Russia sit 9th with four gold, behind former Soviet Union Kazakhstan, who have a remarkable six. If the Iron Curtain was still up, however, the Soviet Union will have 16 gold medals and a total of 66. North Korea and South Korea are each having a great Olympics, with 10 gold for the South Koreans and four gold for their northern neighbours so far, but a combined Korea would boast 14 gold and 25 in total. The former Yugoslavian countries may also like to combine their medals, while the Italians should consider counting those won by countries once ruled by the Roman Empire. Meanwhile Yorkshire, with four gold medals, would be 11th on the table if it were a country, ahead of Australia, Canada, Japan and ...
In 2012, what is the fascination with communism? In a Utopian sense, it places everyone on the same plane. Fairness to all. No Ultra-rich, no ultra-poor. (not really equal opportunities, equal results has been the way of implementation). Let's examine the results for communism over the past 100 years. Soviet Union? Failed. Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Romania, East Germany, Albania, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, ALL FAILED, DISMANTLED AND REVILED, now firmly capitalistic. China, in name only, capitalistic with a totalitarian government. Basically, failed and gradually a capitalist society has emerged. North Korea - no one can call that a success. VietNam, sort of a microcosm of China. So that leaves Cuba. A success? 90% of the people in Cuba live at a standard we would call "below the poverty line". Technologically, they live at a standard of the 1950's and only because their agriculture can produce enough food do they hang on at subsistence levels. I don't think of it as a suc ...
There are roads and bridges in North Korea & Cuba as there were in Nazi Germany and the former Soviet Union. People starved to death in those nations. He clearly does not understand the difference.
I've actually heard people say the UN is not the structure for a one-world government. Thank goodness for my sense of humor! The problem is that it will not be a one-world free country like the United States, but a one-world dictatorship like North Korea, Cuba, or the "former" Soviet Union a la Josef Stalin. And in order to have this, the only remaining free country has to become non-free, and that cannot be done without disarming the people. We know who we are, don't we, boys and girls? There will be no more places to hide. Won't it be grand? In 1998 I took my daughter Hayley (remember that, Greg, when I suggested you and I take our daughters to things like this?) to the University of Arizona Center for Creative Photography to see the display of portraits of Khmer Rouge killing fields victims in Cambodia. I asked Ly Suong, the presenter whose physician father and brother-in-law had disappeared during that period, what the UN had done to prevent the holocaust. He answered "They were the ones that c ...

Question, Do you believe in Good vs Evil ? Go back to Ronald Reagan calling the Soviet Union a Evil Empire & George W Bush called North Korea, Iran, and Iraq " Axis of Evil"
Death by Communism... 65 million in the People's Republic of China (recently revised to over 80 million) 20 million in the Soviet Union 2 million in Cambodia 2 million in North Korea 1.7 million in Africa 1.5 million in Afghanistan 1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe 1 million in Vietnam 150,000 in Latin America 10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power." From The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression is a book authored by several European academics and edited by Stéphane Courtois, which describes a history of repressions, both political and civilian, by Communist states, including genocides, extrajudicial executions, deportations, and artificial famines. The book was originally published in 1997 in France under the title Le Livre noir du communisme: Crimes, terreur, répression by Éditions Robert Laffont. In the United States it is published by Harvard University Press.
The U.S.A. has, with recent (obviously unconstitutional, of course) legislation, joined a rather rarefied (indeed more-or-less unique) 'club' of sorts: Along with Hitler's Germany, the Soviet Union, and, currently Red China and neo-Stalinist wacko state, North Korea, among a few others, the U.S. fedgov now claims the prerogative to INDEFINITELY DETAIN **W/O EVEN THE SLIGHTEST SEMBLANCE OF *DUE PROCESS* ** ANYONE who is deemed a "terrorist" and/or "enemy combatant" and/or anyone who "aids" such people. And WHO GETS TO DECIDE (utterly arbitrarily, of course, based on little if any evidence, much less credible, *bona fide* evidence) **WHO** is such a person?! Why the minions of the Executive Branch of the Federal Gubment, that's WHO. This is, of course, utterly UNCONSTITUTIONAL **ON ITS FACE**...When are you going to WAKE-UP, folks??!!!

ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT COMMUNISM IN THIS COUNTRY? HOW MANY DID COMMUNIST REGIMES MURDER?* By R.J. Rummel With this understood, the Soviet Union appears the greatest megamurderer of all, apparently killing near 61,000,000 people. Stalin himself is responsible for almost 43,000,000 of these. Most of the deaths, perhaps around 39,000,000 are due to lethal forced labor in gulag and transit thereto. Communist China up to 1987, but mainly from 1949 through the Cultural Revolution, which alone may have seen over 1,000,000 murdered, is the second worst megamurderer. Then there are the lesser megamurderers, such as North Korea and Tito's Yugoslavia. Obviously the population that is available to kill will make a big difference in the total democide, and thus the annual percentage rate of democide is revealing. By far, the most deadly of all communist countries and, indeed, in this century by far, has been Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Pol Pot and his crew likely killed some 2,000,000 Cambodians from April 1975 thr ...
Have you noticed that those who detest all Muslims act as though the Muslims invented the persecution of Christians. The Jewish led Government ( NOT the everyday Jewish people) of the Soviet Union persecuted Christians. They starved, murdered, tortured, and mutilated 60 million Christians. The reality is the persecution of Christians has always been on going since the inception of Christianity. 64% of the millions upon millions upon millions of Christians who have been martyred in the history of our faith have died in the 20th and 21st century. Yes, Christians are persecuted by some Muslims but, let's not forget Christians are still being persecuted by Communist countries. North Korea is the most dangerous place to be a Christian, but China, Viet Nam, Laos Cambodia and on and on are very dangerous places to be Christian. It has upset me for decades that we hear so little about this persecution. I guess it isn't PC. It is only PC to tell of persecution by Muslims but not Communist ? Tells me the hate for A ...
I have had a litle time to think after my visit to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Richmond, KY and have come to the conclusion that compared to some of the Heroes I met there, I have NO Problems. My major problem compared to them is just outright anger at the jerk politicians who send our youn men in harms way then deserted them and the people of South Vietnam after all of the loss of life both American and South Vietnam to the Communists cupported by the Soviet Union, China, North Korea and MANY idiologs here in the USA. Other than the anger I am doing just fine. My heart goes out to those who have not YET Healed. May God Bless Them and Keep them in the Palm of His Hand.
Finished reading The Orphan Master' Son by Adam Johnson, a chilling novel about North Korea. Just started Escape from Prison 14, true story, reviewed on Diane Rehm Show yesterday. Why is no one speaking about the Gulags in this country, worse than those in the old Soviet Union?
How is that? What about North Korea, China, erstwhile Soviet Union? What about Pol Pot's Kampuchea, Galtieri's Argentina?
