The Western press is wondering why Kim Jong-un took his daughter to demonstrate a new ballistic missile

On Saturday, the media of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea published photos of the country's leader Kim Jong-un with a girl in front of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Presumably, next to the North Korean leader was his daughter Kim Joo-e.


Earlier it became known about the launch of the DPRK ICBM "Hwaseong-17". The country's closest neighbors, Japan and South Korea, as well as the US, are very concerned about the missile launches. After all, it is theoretically capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the US mainland.

However, this time the attention of the world media was attracted not even by a rocket, but by a girl next to the leader of the DPRK. CNN wondered what the nine-year-old girl has to do with nuclear arms North Korea? Leif Eric Isley, associate professor of international studies at Ewha Women's University in Seoul, argues that the presence of the North Korean leader's daughter should be seen in the context of domestic political processes taking place in the country.

Outside of North Korea, it may seem crazy to pose for cameras hand in hand with a child in front of a long-range missile designed to deliver nuclear weapons.

Isley says. Apparently, in Western logic, where is it "better" to pose with children, for example, when killing animals in Scandinavian zoos...


In North Korea, the political scientist notes, the successful launch of an ICBM is seen as an occasion for a national holiday. Yang Mu-jin, president of the University of North Korean Studies in the South, believes that Kim Jong-un wants to show himself as a family man, a model for normal people. In addition, the daughter of Kim Jong-un can be seen as a key figure in the "dynasty" of the Kims. It is possible that in the future she will become the successor of her father at the head of the DPRK.

However, now Kim Jong-un is only 38 years old. It is very, very early for him to think about leaving his life. And the daughter is unlikely to be able to replace him at the head of the country even in the next ten years. Therefore, Ankit Panda, senior fellow at the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said it was unlikely that the photo was intended to show Zhu Ae as a successor to Kim Jong-un, even a potential one.


In any case, North Korea's demonstration of an intercontinental ballistic missile is a serious argument for Pyongyang to sort things out with its opponents. Earlier, the Russian authorities also stated that the DPRK was forced to conduct nuclear tests due to constant threats from the United States and its regional satellites. Now nuclear weapons can be seen as a kind of security guarantee for North Korea.

Therefore, from the point of view of strategic expediency, Kim Jong-un is doing everything right. And photographs with his daughter can also demonstrate that he is a national leader who is not alien to anything human, but who is ready to defend his country and people with the help of such modern weapons. And he demonstrates this ability to protect his land to the younger generation of North Koreans in the person of his daughter Kim Joo-e.

    Wretched! Imagine that dad (not parent No. 2) brought his beloved daughter (not a child with an undetermined gender, namely a girl) to show her an interesting sight, (and who among us would not want to see and show the children a rocket launch) - for them (the West) is horror-horror! Once again - miserable!

      The message is much simpler: there are weapons and there is someone to continue the work they have begun. Westerners, as always, make a pile of meanings out of everything (to nowhere).

      In the West, they forgot about simple family values ​​- a peaceful sky above their heads. Kim just showed that there is something to protect the family and the country.

      Their children run around LGBT parties and doctors to become transgender, and then they saw that there are normal children and their interests are real.
      That's what the West doesn't like, everything is not going their way in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    I (besides other children) have two 9-year-old girls with the same name and different mothers. Now, I sometimes go with one of them to people that I do business with.
    Firstly, they are gradually delving into these matters and, perhaps, will be able to continue them. And even if they decide to turn off and do something else, they will at least imagine how not to lose much when folding.
    Secondly, in the event of my sudden death, my debtors will at least know who to pay instead of me.

    The grandson of my grandfather's friend is much younger than me. However, it also has more risks. After all, he is the head of state, which has enemies. So thinking about the future, he is simply obliged to consider different options, including the most pessimistic ones.

    And now, seriously. West. Everything is known when and where it will fly. And if it flies over Japan, these are Japan’s problems, they may move. The area where the BG fell is known in advance.

    with the concern of the United States, everything is clear, but what are these people going through?

    A child is extremely interested in such an event, even a girl. It's just interesting, without any double or triple meanings. Yes, what is there for a child, I myself would love to see it, though only the start.

    I didn't understand the meaning of the question either.
    What, Western teenagers see ICBM tests every day? Or are they already so indifferent to everything except questions of gender identity that they are not interested in such a spectacle?
    I think, if there was such an opportunity, in Russia 90% of teenagers would sit in the hallway dressed in the morning so that they could go to the training ground with their dad to watch this. :) At least just to show off to my peers later.
    And from the point of view of propaganda, everything is simple. Kim showsthat the rocket is absolutely reliable, so much so that he is not afraid to take his child to the test, and that the launch of this rocket is an event, although not an ordinary one, but already a regular one. So much so that you can show it to your daughter. He says: "We have a lot of reliable missiles."

    And photos with his daughter can also demonstrate that he is a national leader who is not alien to anything human

    He demonstrates that his wife and his daughter and his entire family are with him in Korea and are ready to share his fate with the fate of the whole people if necessary. Is it so difficult to understand the obvious?

    Kim calculated everything very accurately ---- the Western media paid little attention to herself rocket, but a lot for a girl ..... a good psychologist, however ...

    This is called very simply - patriotic education. Schoolchildren need to be taken on excursions to these launches. By the way, it would not hurt to launch "Sarmatians" either .... at a safe distance. Bring the children on an excursion, collect herbariums, and then oops, and the racket flew out, and competent people will already tell you what and why, where it flies, with what and why. Patriotic education, however.

    Well, the rocket itself is beautiful and aesthetic. So everything is fine here. good
