North Korea and fascism

North Korea never attracted my attention before. I knew next to nothing. Angry leader, communism, weird rules and that was about it. A blank spot on the map. But, I’ve done some studying and the biggest discovery is:

North Korea is a fascist state. People are starving so the leader can build his guns. People executed if they fail to shed tears in morning of previous leaders. People prohibited from their own opinions. And maybe the worst example: People living in fear of a imminent nuclear attack from America – each day for years. Millions of people suffering a horrible leader.

It’s the old fascist recipe for ruling – keep people in fear. Instigate segregation laws or apartheid laws. In the history there have been fears of Jews, Russians, Africans and today Americans, Muslims and so on. Create propaganda. Or “fake news”. Make believe.

Something about North Korea that would profoundly mess with my personality: The speakers everywhere. Playing music when they think you should go to bed or wake up in the morning.  The fusebox would blow for sure. I’ve lived hearing sermons in speakers and I’d take that any day. It’s cultural, it’s given by concern or love or lack of seats in the building. It’s not to annoy anyone.

I’m not sure the North Koreans want to be free. I don’t think they understand the concept of freedom. How can you, if you never saw it?

Chlorine gas used in Mosul today

Once America was an island. Tucked in with Canada and shielded by oceans.  Now, the island privileges are history. The south border have become problematic and must be sealed off. Somehow. And the “Over seas” have become a rhetoric and romantic past. Today America’s in reach of whom ever with the desire.

Mr Trump, being a fairly old guy, grew up with the cense of security. Except from the Cuba crisis. But he acts as security still shields America. As if he can do as he like abroad. Like nothing will ever come back at him and the American citizens.

I believe otherwise.

The international community should’ve investigated the chemical attack. The coalition should have approached the problem. As it seems now America can’t afford to sneeze in the middle east. And, does it make any difference that Daesh/ISIS used chlorine gas today in Mosul? Take a look at what other countries thinks:

Iran on the US strike in Syria

Russia on the US strike in Syria

SyrianArabNewsAgency on the US strike in Syria

IraqiNews.com Stating that ISIS/Daesh launched chlorine gas in Mosul today Monday. 10 people dead.

Then we have the unavoidable – North Korea. It’s not a matter if, but when.

The Stockholm terrorist

Something must have gone wrong. He survived. Sources say that there were explosives in the truck so he might have had other plans.

The police published the pictures short after the attack causing people to recognize him as he entered a train and went home. Publishing the picture caused the quick arrest.

The guy is a Uzbek citizen and allegedly a person of interest to Russia. He is affiliated with Hizb-ut-Tahrir a pan-islamic political organization. He’s also said to be one of Daesh followers.

He seem to have five kids and a normal family life on the side.
