A North Korea thread


I can’t remember where I saw it, but I was watching a documentary on Dennis and Kim. One part that was interesting is that Kim didn’t meet with him supposedly due his constant drunken state. I imagine that Dennis goes there for money, but I don’t know that for sure. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/06/14/dennis-rodmans-last-trip-to-north-korea-was-a-disaster-mostly-for-him/?utm_term=.bbf76ec651da


Better than these old pals?


I’d be very happy to see the Korea’s united and at the same time understand the potential burden to South Korea. I’m not sure if the younger generation feels that way or not because they may not remember family. South Korea is a powerhouse and the North has missed out on this. I can’t see this happening but if Kim really wanted to go down in history, this is his chance.


Have the writers never heard of Dennis Rodman before? That’s just Dennis Rodman. He’s been like this and he was also painted so negatively during his playing days.

CNN pissed me of during that interview. What’s he going to say in NK? He’s there building a relationship between the two countries with basketball. The two countries has zero relationship and hate each other basically, well at least N korans are taught that Americans are evil. You can’t have any diplomacy without at least some relationship. Dennis Rodman did what no politican could have done. And leave it to the fucking media to just smear him to the ground. There are videos of his trips him hanging out with Kim and him going around chilling with North Koreans. I’m so pissed at how the media made Dennis look so bad, he’s always been like this. It’s what made people like him.


Surprisingly it’s often the older generation that also voice opinions against taking on the burdens of NK because they don’t want their children who are already struggling to take that on. Young people can be idealistic.


Family feeling is vastly overrated. Sometimes relatives are just an embarrassment.

When I hear Taiwanese speaking fondly of those people on the tour buses, I may start to take this sort of talk seriously.

I’ve got Sicilian relatives taught me all I need to know about family.


There are two versions, the first is crediting Dennis Rodman, the easier and simpler of the two, a scenario which one might imagine unification talks.

The second is longer, and certainly won’t be discussed on the MSM as it gives Trump far too much credit and supposes a coordinated, and systematic targeting of Russian and Chinese economic interests to get them to basically agree. In this version unification is an absolute non starter as they want the geopolitical leverage that is NK. Much of this is a repeat of an earlier link which has since been updated and refined.
