I didn't read the article you posted, but there is a story attached to it that is so inspiring I thought I'd point it out to you. Click on your article, then click on the link What Can North Korea Hit, then scroll all the way to the end. At the very bottom there is a link to "Follow a teenage North Korean defector...". The story is in 2 parts. It's very worthwhile reading.

Pyongyang has reportedly conducted 11 missile tests after talks broke down at the second US-North Korea summit in Hanoi in February - but why isn't there any fire and fury from US President Donald Trump?
That's an easy one - the US hasn't attacked any nation that could retaliate for ... how many years?
That's not a trick question, there is an exact answer accepted by everyone - just one they don't want to hear!
North Korea can retaliate - it can do so on South Korea, costing the colonial power $100s of billions - and killing those very few of the little yellow people that the US counts as friends.
Iran may have reached the same point - the US is not going to do there what's its done in Iraq and Libya and Syria - because Iran can (maybe) retaliate hard enough against other litle brown people that the US counts as friends - again costing the colonial power $100s of billions.
Sorry if it makes the Zionists even angrier to hear me state my theory wot I have got. Its near enough to 100% true to make them grind their teeth.

I frequently avoid clicking on people's links in the near-certainty they're rubbish - but your is not rubbish.
Or rather, I don't suppose it is ... but its no longer there.
However, there was this link - https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-12-15/north-korean-defectors-returning-to-the-hermit-kingdom/9254654
And it tells me what I suspected - South Korea is colonised by brutal slave-drivers and its people no longer have pride in themselves.
Which of course explains why the Japanese continue to treat Koreans with contempt. A North Korean has pride and love for his country - South Koreans have had it beaten out of them.
The ability of NK to fight a conventional war is very limited , a first strike (conventional) by NK on South Korea would be enormous but the reaction by the US and South Korea would be in a different league
The Iranians do not posses either an air force , navy or any form of army capable even in their dreams of confronting the US .
Conventional Missiles will not win wars , the US has the ability to deliver an incredible sustained assault if they are called up on to do so .
A North Korean has pride and love for his country - South Koreans have had it beaten out of them.
I'm sure this was just a mistake on your part - from what I read, it's the other way around. Of course I don't have first hand knowledge of the situation, but the 15 year old girl that attempted (and 3 years later succeeded) to escape the brutality and starvation of North Korea in order to get to South Korea, and eventually Australia, thought otherwise.
Here is a link to part one of her story. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-04-27/escape-from-north-korea-defector/7132926

We're (mostly) being fed the stories of those who left and are ever so happy that they did so.
We're not being told the full horror that the US visited on South Korea and how much patriotic Koreans hate them. Number killed totally unknown - but a far worse destruction than Poland under Hitler and Stalin in succession.
Or maybe you know differently - but then explain why the international report on the use of biological warfare on Koreans, headed by a top British scientist was buried for 70 years and he was persecuted by the US.
Occupation forces drop baby down well.
Few escape as an entire population is burned.
South Koreans were targeted for mass-murder and the total destruction of all their history and all of their towns and villages.
As best I know the following commentary is uncontentious - is it true? 100% true or only 99% true?
"The Korean War: 1945-1953" By Hugh Deane (on google books, see link)
p.145 ... The authoritative British military publication Brassey's Annual ... in its 1951 edition: "The war was fought without regard for the South Koreans, and their unfortunate country was regarded as an arena rather than a country to be liberated. As a consequence, fighting was quite ruthless, and it is no exaggeration to state that South Korea no longer exists as a country. Its towns have been destroyed, much of its means of livelihood eradicated, and its people reduced to a sullen mass depending upon charity..."102
.... Napalm was first used in the third day of the 1950 war ... Soon the use of napalm was a celebrated weapon in military journals. ... "They Don't Like 'Hell Bombs'" (Armed Forces Chemical Journal, January 1951) ... the number of "hell bombs" dropped rose to "astronomical figures" and pilots soon, were complaining about the scarcity of targets. http://books.google.com.au/books?id=XMJpnYmKNQsC&pg=PA145
Of course, having boasted of burning millions of people to a crisp (real meaning of the word holocaust anyone?) the US then switched tack, lying and denying and angrily retaliating at the people who proved that there'd been mass use of biological WMD on the Koreans!

REVEALED: The long-suppressed official report on US biowarfare in North Korea
Feb 20, 2018 ... Written largely by the most prestigious British scientist of his day, this official report, containing hundreds of pages of evidence about the use of US biological weapons during the Korean War, was effectively suppressed upon its original release in 1952.
... The report concluded that the U.S. had used a number of biological weapons, including use of anthrax, plague, and cholera, disseminated by over a dozen of different devices or methods, including spraying, porcelain bombs, self-destroying paper containers with a paper parachute, and leaflet bombs, among others.
... Courtesy of researcher Jeffrey Kaye, INSURGE now publishes the report in text-searchable format for the first time for the general public, with an exclusive, in-depth analysis of its damning findings and implications.
Sorry, I'm not an expert, or even a knowledgeable spectator re the North/South Korean conflict, therefore will not even attempt to enlighten you. I'm sure you have much more credible info than the people who actually lived through the liberation of Korea from the Japanese, the division of Korea into North and South Korea, the establishment of a communist government in North Korea and a democratic republic in South Korea and the aftermath of such actions. Regardless of who did what during the Korean War, South Korea recovered and the majority of the population do not starve. I wouldn't have to dig very deeply to find horrifying reports of actions taken by the North against their own countrymen in the South.
South Korea's per capita GDP, at $34,549 as of 2016, meets developed-country criteria by any reasonable standard. Life expectancy is an impressive 81 years; the infant mortality rate is similarly low, at three per 1,000 live births. As of 2016, South Korea's HDI is 0.89
South Korea's economic freedom score is 72.3, making its economy the 29th freest in the 2019 Index. ... South Korea is ranked 7th among 43 countries in the Asia–Pacific region, and its overall score is above the regional and world averages.
Poverty in North Korea is extensive, though reliable statistics are hard to come by due to lack of reliable research, pervasive censorship and extensive media manipulation in North Korea.
North Korea is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world.Poverty and hunger are most acute in North Korea's country
Posted it, so others don't have to go the long way around
The link is there.
The story is fucking brutal.
And it does not paint North Korea in a good light, so you won't like it.
