u/notsocoolnow Nov 07 '22

If I had to make an educated guess, I suspect North Korea might be undergoing food shortages or a COVID explosion. This is the impetus for provocation to raise nationalism and quieten unrest. Basically it's a ruse to make North Koreans panic at external threat and endure domestic problems. And possibly extract concessions from the West to chill out.

Before anyone accuses me of idle speculation, the situation in NK is very hard to determine outright due to how insular it is, lack of government statistics and transparency, lack of foreign news correspondents, and sanctions, meaning that speculation is all we got most of the time.

Here's why I think so:

  1. Global fertilizer shortages. Ukraine and Russia are the top exporters of fertilizer, and the war has disrupted this supply. Those who are ignoring sanctions are selling fertilizer to rich countries. This makes the price of fertilizer incredibly high, a ruinous situation for poor nations in general (I'm serious, lots of poor countries are FUCKED) which includes NK.
  2. Ongoing Sanctions and infrastructure woes. North Korea is heavily dependent on oil for infrastructure. Oil is colossally expensive now, and sanctions have made it very hard for NK to import it even when it's not expensive. FYI, Because of the 2016/2017 nuclear shenanigans, even China is sanctioning North Korea. Unsurprisingly, China doesn't like people messing around with nukes at its border. In fact, the last time NK had a famine, thousands of North Koreans (est half a million) starved to death because relations with China were at a historical low at the time (China had just normalized relations with South Korean and NK threw a fit) which made NK too proud to beg China for relief. Ignore recent diplomatic niceties in public between Xi and Kim, those are just PR. Chinese sanctions are still on.
  3. COVID. NK has almost no access to western vaccines, which means no mRNA vaccine until China develops one. And China will give it to Chinese citizens first, so it's a while off. I suspect that NK is now dealing with the highly infectious Omicron sub-variants which a zero-COVID policy cannot defend against. And it's killing farmers.

North Korea is one of the most vulnerable countries for famine. In September there was considerable alarm being raised by humanitarian groups that North Korea was likely heading in that direction. It's now November and I think even if there isn't an outright famine, there are likely to be severe food shortages. Perhaps the wet season harvest was not as bountiful as they hoped.

u/Owl_lamington Nov 07 '22

There's a good chance Russia's giving them fertilisers in return for weapons and ammo.

They don't have a point though. You don't get to develop nuclear weapons in breach of UN treaties; fire missiles left, right and center and then proceed to complain when your neighbors conduct military exercises in response.

It would be nothing short of irresponsible for South Korea and the US not to prepare for an eventual war with North Korea.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_War

The war began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following clashes along the border and rebellions in South Korea.

Just in general I recommend the wiki article.

The Korean war killed nearly a 1/3 of NK people at the time

That's untrue. Charles Armstrong had the largest estimate of 15% of the NK population having died as a result (including famine, lack of medical aid, and other downstream effects from the war). It should be noted that Armstrong's number is much higher than anyone else's and his book was found to be riddled with errors (though no one took specific issue with that particular part of the book, but they did take issue with many of his citations). Most people estimate closer to a third of that 15%, so about 5% of the population. Terrible, yes, but not a third of the population.

In general your comment is....odd. North Korea has had a much more belligerent stance regardless of exercises held by SK. They have pulled guards over the border at the DMZ, they attacked the SK and US (with axes!), they shot missiles into other countries air and water space, they shot civilians in the SEZ. They violate every treaty and agreement they are part of (even the USSR stopped delivering equipment to NK because they were notorious for reneging on deals).

Yet you have this stance of "poor North Koreans, they are just scared"... Like no. Their leadership did this also during the sunshine policy years.

19

u/sickofthisshit Nov 07 '22

Both are simulations of invasions of North Korea.

This is not a fair characterization. These (scheduled long in advance) drills work on the ability of the ROK and US forces to coordinate large operations in general. Yes, if they were going to invade the DPRK, these skills and readiness would be important. But they would also be important to defend against an attack from the DPRK.

Typically, these exercises are deliberately designed not to resemble an attack, precisely to avoid setting off a conflict. For example, land based forces tend to set up the exercises in an east-west orientation so that they do not match preparations for invasion.

u/SVZ0zAflBhUXXyKrF5AV Nov 07 '22

While food is strictly rationed by a persons age (in basic groups) so you are always hungry, the obedience and fear runs far deeper than that.

They're taught from a very early age to basically worship the ruling family. They have a whole mythology about their divinity. On a regular basis the public form into small groups which basically tear each other apart for any wrong thoughts or actions towards the ruling family. It's a point of great pride to snitch on anyone who may be thinking or doing something wrong.

They also have rules about where the official portraits are placed, how high they are hung on the wall, that no other photo may be on the same wall and that the portrait is properly dusted using the correct duster. Inspections are carried out to see that this is done.

If a photo of the leader is in a newspaper you are forbidden to scrunch it up and throw it away. You must hand it in, I forget where, for it to be collected with the respect it deserves.

The most loyal of the people are housed towards the centres of towns/cities. Those considered to be unworthy and/or less loyal are out in rural areas.

As you may have guessed, communications are monitored and files are kept on people.

If you are unfortunate enough to be taken away to one of the camps you are nothing more than an animal to them and will be treated as such. You're slave labour. You will be made to watch your friends and family being beaten and killed.

A while back I watched a documentary about dictators. There was an interview with a woman who escaped from North Korea. She said that looking back she was disgusted with how she thought and acted. She said that at the time she really did look upon exposing other peoples wrong thoughts and actions in those group sessions with a sense of great pride in her devotion to the leader. It's what they were brought up to believe from a very early age.

u/Moldy_Michael Nov 10 '22

Well of course it's more detailed than that, Tyranny requires far more active tactics and plays than just food.

u/SVZ0zAflBhUXXyKrF5AV Nov 10 '22

Yeah, I figured you already knew. That wasn't really why I mentioned all that stuff and it wasn't really aimed at you, so I'm sorry for my poor choice of words. And yes, there is great psychological power in controlling access to food for people and animals.

My reason for mentioning some of the things they go through is because sometimes I've seen people joking about the dictator and his family or wondering why the people don't rise up against them. I've seen similar comments wondering why the Russian people don't rebel against Putin. Put simple, I was just trying to give readers some more information and the perspective of the people who live there.

Honestly North Korea needs to knock off their shit. No one wants North Korea, it’s a shit hole. But if they don’t cut the shit the US and allies might rightfully end the horrific Kim regime.

NK is absolutely correct about that.

This goes for North Korea AND South Korea and their allies:

STFU or do something.

I'm so sick of hearing both sides complaining about the actions of the opposing side.

War, or GTFO.

War is not a joke bro

u/vVWARLOCKVv Nov 07 '22

My comment wasn't meant to be humorous. I meant every word of it very seriously.

When diplomacy and empathy fail, war is the tool we use to remove problem nations from the world board. It's unfortunate, but war is an inevitability that is occurring every hour of every day, around the world. The only thing that changes are the people and nations involved, and the reasons.

If North Korea reaches global nuclear capability nothing good is going to happen. We should nip that shit in the bud and save its citizens from an oppressive regime at the same time OR we should focus our attention and resources on more important tasks and quit worrying about North Korea.

I'm sorry you disagree with my opinion, but it is valid.

And then you wonder why America is always voted the #1 threat to global peace.

u/vVWARLOCKVv Nov 07 '22

Yeah because North Korea firing rockets over and around South Korea is just super peaceful. It's totally the US's fault, we're the assholes.

u/[deleted] Nov 07 '22

because only North Korea has this opinion?

The US is nothing more than a powerful international bully, but I guess that's exactly what you want anyway.

Media really trying to push a certain narrative lately… lot of fear mongering and threats of imminent nuclear world war, famine, economic collapse, immigration crisis, climate emergencies and so forth. Wonder what they are mentally preparing us for?

It’s obvious a populace can be controlled and with todays tech and access to (centralized) information, we are sitting ducks easily coerced and controlled by fear. Information and the ability to inform is priceless in a crusade for control and when you own the media, you own the minds of the people. If only we could all come together and tell these handlers to fuck right off so we can save our planet from its ensuing downfall.

I know this will be an unpopular opinion here but thats ok, I know I’m not the only one here who isn’t blind 🙂

Do you also say sheeple?

u/VintageJDizzle Nov 07 '22

The NK narrative is not new. Every now and then, the Kim regime saber rattles and the news gets all excited about it and pretends the apocalypse is imminent, like this story has never been head before. Instead, it's more like the 20th chapter in the Fast and the Furious series.

What you need to watch is the South Korean media and news to assess the threat. The people who live in Seoul. If they are not concerned, you don't have reason to be. But if they start to get nervous, then you do really need to worry.

u/whomeverIwishtobe Nov 07 '22

They’re right we messed up - we should have done hella missile tests on the border too.

u/Thunderhorse2 Nov 07 '22

I mean they ARE provocations… Gosh last time I was there was 2015-2016 and is now 2022 and they still doing the same sh!t…

1

u/johnn48 Nov 07 '22

Which came first, I thought their missile launches began before the exercises. At least they attracted the most attention.

1

u/kaaikala Nov 07 '22

Seems like firing missiles might be provocation.

u/almosttape Nov 07 '22

And repeatedly firing missiles over Japan isn’t?

1

u/PeregrinePacifica Nov 07 '22

Lmao, N Korea is just copying the political tactics of Russia and China completely at this point.

At this point they are less China's angry lap pomeranian and more a dollarstore "Mini-Me".

u/Ato07 Nov 07 '22

Why are these countries so self-unaware?

u/Big-Zoo Nov 07 '22

And launching dozens of missiles into the ocean wasn't?

u/spoogekangaroo Nov 07 '22

Yeah, but constantly firing missiles toward/over Japan is just neighborly fun.

u/Shipkiller-in-theory Nov 07 '22

They have been saying that forever. Every time we held "Team Spirit" in the 80's they would bitch about it.

u/KingGidorah Nov 07 '22

But our missiles and nuclear tests are A-OK…

Nobody cares about you, NK. Just stay quiet in your hole until the people revolt.

u/CanuckInTheMills Nov 07 '22

North Korea should STFU!

u/User667 Nov 07 '22

I’ve seen Kim. If they want to hold their own exercises, they should, but there’s about NK that screams exercise.

u/ColtS117 Nov 07 '22

Said the assholes launching missiles.
