Some welcome perspective on the North Korean situation

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Friday April 05, 2013 04:14author by fred Report this post to the editors

A lot of hype in the MSM lately about North Korea. These two clips from the RT show "breaking the set" with commentators from answercoalition.org give some much needed context and background from which to interpret the current media spin. Instead of a seemingly irrational belligerent nihilism, the North Korean statements in context, become more like a rational defensive response to a systematic aggressor bent on harming and undermining their country and it's tendency to socialism. You may find some of the facts that emerge about North Korea rather surprising.

it's pretty hard to find an image of North Korea that's not just more western propaganda.
Guess what, you wouldn't think it from the MSM, but people actually smile in the DPRK too!!
