NI: DPRK has powerful weapons, and it's not just a nuclear bomb

45
American Journal National Interest published an article that talks about the "most powerful" weapons DPRK Moreover, the author immediately makes it clear that he has not only the nuclear arsenal of Pyongyang. An article by Dave Majumdar, who is notorious for his often eccentric materials, says that the main weapon of North Korea is the special services, which are in a "spike" with the supreme authorities of the state.


It is noted that in the presence of intelligence services engaged in foreign intelligence and secret operations, as well as counterintelligence activities, the DPRK is expanding its influence. The submission states that Pyongyang has two special agencies that, with the help of an intelligence network, work in the territory of South Korea, doing intelligence.

NI: DPRK has powerful weapons, and it's not just a nuclear bomb


The article by Majumdar stated that even the name of one of the special services of the DPRK “speaks volumes”. We are talking about the Ministry of National Security of North Korea, which, as the author notes in an American magazine, has almost the same name as in the “Stalinist USSR” - given in the following form Ministerstvo Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti MGB.

Judging by this statement by specialist Dave Majumdar, the very fact of the similarity of the names of the departments automatically speaks of the “long hands” of the North Korean special services. Interesting logic ...

Further, the author of the material notes that this special service is directly accountable to the North Korean leader Kim Jong Ynu, which, apparently, should add credibility not only to the North Korean MGB, but to all North Korean special services combined.

      The most powerful weapon at all times is the spiritual component of the nation! And the DPRK has it .. In Russia, too, this is the most dangerous weapon for the West, but all sorts of “human rights activists and liberals” are trying to bite it from the inside.
      Take care of the souls of your children and grandchildren peasants ..! The war is precisely for our souls and future generations .. They want to turn us all into stupid consumers.

                This is now the church "white and fluffy", and then the normal (ideological) basically ordinary ranks, priests of small branches. And the higher the income of the parish, the more readily they pray to the Golden Calf. For big money and a toilet bless.
                The Russian Orthodox Church is rotten from the inside, from the head. Moreover, it rotted back in Tsarist times, where priests were charged with the duty of reporting to the secret police about the secrets of confession, and they were allowed to have their own business
                As for the "long arms of Una" - I hope so. North Korea is now confronting the United States almost on its own, giving a little slack - bombed by carpet bombing, if not atomic bombs

          This is where the priest needs to be asked how to save "the souls of his children and grandchildren."

            Religious obscurantism is carefully cultivated, because it’s easier to manage boobies and the church gives meaning to the insignificance of mankind. After all, it’s scary to look at the sky and see your own insignificantly, because in order to realize the scale of the Universe our limited and primitive mind is completely insufficient. We are so small that even a colony of ants in the African jungle is more important for our planet than humanity on the scale of the universe. We live on an ordinary oxygen planet orbiting an ordinary yellow dwarf, somewhere on the outskirts of the small Milky Way galaxy. And if tomorrow some meteorite incinerates all life on our planet or we ourselves, stop our miserable existence by unleashing a thermonuclear war, the Universe will not shudder in horror - it will not even notice it ...

          Soul (spirit) - what a weapon!
          I’ve raised one son ... I bring up the second in the spirit of love for the Fatherland. Pride in the victories and achievements of our grandfathers. It's just that nothing is given. You have to communicate with your child as an adult. To explain what he doesn’t understand ... It’s not enough to say that “Novalny is m *** k” ... It is necessary to explain why so!
          While # onzhdet need to "not miss it."
          The topics discussed with my son are very different - from tsarism, Stalin and the Second World War to our days .. Recently, they talked about bitcoin. And often he will ask something, so I’ve been sitting in the internet for a week to describe the situation correctly and easily.
          There was no information before, now there is a lot, which also creates difficulties ...
          And in conversations I am sometimes amazed at what kind of a mess may be in the rising generation (14 years old)!
          So it depends only on us who our generation will grow up - cosmopolitans or patriots!

    Well, the notorious Dave Majumdar seems to have found a new field that you can plow. Now he will write not only about military equipment, but also about special services.

    Some of the author’s sayings cause a smile, for example, that
    this intelligence service reports directly to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un,

    In principle, any special service, one way or another, is directly or indirectly accountable to the leader of their country.

    Although, to be honest, he raised an interesting topic (although he did not mention what kind of second special service of North Korea it was)
    In principle, not much is known about the North Korean special services. If volumes are written about other services, their history is traced. then very little is known about North Korean services.

    Now I looked in my archive. Folder DPRK Special Services probably the thinnest. Only a dozen pages of text in several files. Of course, not counting the primary sources. Squeeze only.

    Would read. After all, everything is only on the basis of OPEN materials .. But seriously, in reality, the intelligence services of North Korea are much less known than others. Fragmented data only.
    For example, if it is known about the same KGB that, for example, it consisted of X departments that were involved respectively: ........... and Y departments, which were engaged respectively: ........ ............... It is known about the same Ministry of State Security (IOGB) that it consists of 4 departments and 16 departments. If the directions of their activities are known about the departments, that about departments is complete silence.

    pro-American puppet South Korean regime,

    Of course, I understand that it is always necessary to "lower the opponents of North Korea below the plinth." But only terms are used from the arsenal of the Propaganda Department of the Central Committee of the CPSU of the times of developed socialism in the USSR. Sometimes, without thinking, we use terms, in particular, as you mentioned above
    HERE is only a puppet term, meaning a country, although formally independent, but pursuing the foreign policy of the host state. This country is dictated what to do, with whom to trade, etc. Is South Korea such a country now - NO. is not.
    The mode is also somewhat different. something irremovable, held solely "on bayonets". Is South Korea - NOT, is not. She has an electoral system, a replaceable president (unlike her northern neighbor). There were cases of impeachment of the president.
    So maybe you should not use propaganda cliches ???

      Old26 This country is dictated what to do, with whom to trade, etc. Is South Korea now such a country - NO. is not.

      On the territory of the empirialist South Caucasus are the WBs of the empirialist USA, during the threatened period and during the war, ALL power structures of the South Caucasus come under the command of the US Armed Forces ....
      It was the Americans who banned the South Caucasus from developing trade with the DPRK through the north-eastern ports of the DPRK (coal, rare-earth metals, etc.), it was the Americans who vetoed the unification of the railways of both Koreas, and restrictions impose on the development of the South Korean missile technologies, Google you will find all the help and the Americans don’t hide it all, they pay money to the Koreans and protect them, therefore they have the right to dividends ....
      The mode is also somewhat different. something irremovable, held solely "on bayonets".

      Tell us about the first president of the UK, we all laugh together ...
      I am currently working with Koreans, so do not tell me here tales about the regime and state influence in medium and large business in the UK ...
      God forbid you run into Korean nationalism (which they skillfully hide before foreigners), Dachau stoves seem like a kindergarten ....
