Finally a sane and insightful analysis of the political landscape of North Korea. So-called progressives have been influenced in their views on North Korea by U.S propaganda and that is seen from their narratives of N. Korea in general and especially since the death of Kim Jong Il. N. Korea has the right to possess nuclear weapons; it is evident that the U.S and its NATO allies would have concocted an excuse to attack N. Korea to further a regime change if it weren't for the fact that N. Korea has nukes. We know what happened to Saddam and Iraq without nukes. It is hypocritical for so-called progressives to call for either Iran or N. Korea to abandon their nuclear programs when the U.S. continues to maintain its huge stockpile of weapns of mass destruction. As the U.S and NATO forment regime change across the globe the only way for any country to protect its soverienty any more is to have nukes so they dare not attack.
You said the word "progressives" and I just have to say it kind of sickens me to hear that word as the left in this country is fire-walled. Democracy is kinda like NASCAR the cars used to run wide open but then they put on "restrictor plates" to limit there power. Unions? What unions? Have you read the NDAA of 2012 or the Patriot Act? Where is the outrage?
