True.
The South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbos reports that US spies satellites have captured secret meetings between Chinese and North Korean vessels. On about 30 occasions in recent months, China transferred oil to the dictatorship.

Don't know how much was transferred (some is allowed). We know there were what appear to be irregular transfers however.

But it's pretty much right in what it says. ;-)

Oh, now I get it, Eye doesn't like the truthful facts.

To sum it up in a nutshell:

"The real comparison lies in the United States’ refusal to live under the same threat it subjects to other countries, which forms a straight line of continuity to the present. "

JE... Agree.

Many, if not most on both extremes of the political spectrum. Are living a a very narrow and anti intellectual world of self congratulations.

And both extremes call themselves the Smart Ones. If it wasn't so tragic, it would be comical.

And if they didn't. They die.

http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/north-korea-preparing-for-another-missile-launch-us-media-report
SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Speculation has emerged that North Korea is preparing for another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch, reported US media.

US broadcaster CBS reported on Tuesday (Jan 2) that North Korea appears to be in the early stages of another ICBM launch, with missile activity spotted at the same location where it last conducted its third ICBM test in November.

NBC News, citing anonymous military officials, reported on Tuesday that North Korea's first missile launch of 2018 is possible, if not likely, in the coming days.

One official said that the launch could happen mid-week, while another official described the timeline as the "short term".

"North Korea actually repaired the war damage faster than South Korea, which had been far less damaged during the war. A more enduring impact of the bombing is that it has been used as a propaganda tool by the Kim regime to instill hatred in all their citizens from a very young age. As Bruce Cumings explained [12]:"

“Every North Korean knows about this, it's drilled into their minds.”

"Drilled" is correct and correctly acknowledges the murdering, enslaving and evil regime the North Korean people are enduring.

Hopefully, and I have no hope. The North Korean people will soon be liberated from the hell of the Kim family.

Much more difficult when posters in these forums and around the world. Support the present and future murder and enslavement of the North Korean people.

Understanding there is not much we can do to help. The least we can do, is expose those who support their continued murder and enslavement.

Provide legitimate proof of that statement or else this comes to the fore.

If that isn't true, then one must assume your binary thinking is totally flawed because pointing out one sides errors does not absolve the other or indicate support, and it will have to be concluded that you are intentionally attempting to annoy, antagonize and insult others.

I cannot fine anyone actually saying they support the murder of the North Korean people, I actually cannot find anyone posting they support murder, it is a serious charge so please point out where this has been said.

The least we can do, is expose those who support their continued murder and enslavement.


Again where has this been said. I will need to hide the posts concerned.
