Watch North Korea

Digital Chosunilbo (English Edition) : Daily News in English About Korea

On Wednesday, the US suspended its nine-year search for the remains of GIs missing in action in North Korea since the 1950s. On the same day, it announced that 15 Stealth fighter-bombers would be dispatched to South Korea for "exercises." Both measures were ordered by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld according to the Korean Yonhap News agency.

Meanwhile, the North Korean Communist Party organ, Rodong Sinmun, claimed that the US is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against North Korea. They issued the following statement:
Having worked out such operational plan, the bellicose U.S. forces have stepped up the tempo of their preparations. It is Washington’s unvarying intention to stifle North Korea by any means, including a preemptive attack on it.

The United States has already targeted North Korea for preemptive nuclear attack and developed an operational plan. This shows the patent absurdity and hypocrisy of their loudmouthed "diplomatic solution" to the nuclear issue.

Washington likes to talk of the resumption of the six-party talks and makes the oft-repeated assertion that it stands for - and puts stress on - a negotiated settlement of the nuclear issue. But from the outset, the United States has not stood for a diplomatic solution of the nuclear issue. The U.S.’ much publicized "diplomatic solution" is nothing but rhetoric intended to deceive the international community. And it is behind this rhetoric of a "diplomatic solution" that the U.S. is finishing off its preparations for a preemptive nuclear attack against North Korea.

The ambition of America’s bellicose forces to stifle North Korea with preemptive nuclear attacks is becoming more and more dangerous every day. Washington is sadly mistaken if it calculates that it can frighten the DPRK with its plan to achieve its aggressive aim, "OPLAN 8022-02."

Keep an eye on this one. This is rather frightening.

My friend, it's the Korean Workers Party, not the Korean Communist Party.

Nice site of you. I will add it to my links.

Thanks for your correction and for your kind comments. I got my information from Watching which referred to it as the Korean Communist Party. They sometimes rely on machine translations. Perhaps this was one of those times. See:

Banner (and anyone else reading this)--

After looking at your blog, Songun blog ("Single-mindedly united as one under the Banner of Songun held aloft by the Dear Leader Comrade Generalissimo Kim Jong Il, brilliant statesman, political genius, and invincible military commander"), I think that in the interests of "truth in advertising" I need to explain something.

I don't like Kim Jong Il. Everything I read about him tells me that he is a megalomaniacal despot who cares more for amassing personal and political power than he does for the good of his people--for YOU. I wouldn't be at all upset if "Dear Leader" fell off the face of the earth and was never heard from again.

My loathing of George W. Bush, his administration, his cynical use of the radical evangelical "christian" movement to hold onto power, his dependence on the near-fascist Project for a New American Century for ideas and functionaires, and his radical agenda should not be construed to be an endorsement of a tyrant like Kim Jong Il.

Just thought you should know. You may leave your link to IN THE DARK or remove it as you choose.
