Democratic People’s Republic of Korea


This is the latest BBC report on North Korea and world reaction.

I don’t like the government of the DPRK. I appreciated the opportunity to annoy it, and did not need the medal I received for doing it. My Dad received three medals and two unit citations for annoying the DPRK, so it’s sort of part of the “family business.”

I was in POW training when the DPRK seized the USS Pueblo, and flew the same route as the Navy EC-121 they shot down. Many of the people killed or captured did the same job in the Navy that I did in the Air Force and we all worked in NSA. It was personal, and it proved that Nixon couldn’t care less about those of us in reconnaissance.

When Michael posted Боже мой last night, I felt like Swopa expressed in Blowing up the suspended-animation crisis: this was something to have been expected.

Eric Alterman has a solid background piece on how things came to this rather nasty point; the Pensacola Beach Blogger provides more; and Terry explains the $95 million that Anarcho-capitalist and the Taliban’s favorite congressweasel, Dana Rohrabacher was complaining about earlier this morning [my time] on the BBC’s The World Today.
