    That is what a skillfully and timely "information battle" means, which the DPRK and, most importantly, Russia, lost, almost with a dry score. It’s time for us to make a “return move” and raise the “information wave ...” It’s time, it’s time to learn to fight not only with military weapons, because our grandfathers knew how to do this during the years of the Great Patriotic War and what is bothering us now, in a peaceful environment?

      can I clarify? what did we lose here? and what did the DPRK lose?
      facts:
      1. Americans carry out costly exercises on the other side of the earth during the economic crisis at home.
      2. North Korea has nuclear weapons - there will be no war.
      findings:
      everything is going as it should.

      if you have any objections, I will listen with pleasure.

        But the fact that the United States deployed its anti-missile defense elements in that region and the country "remained silent" is what you consider to be an asset, "positive" or "negative"?

          I think it makes no difference to us - this is the problem of China.

          let me clarify my vision of the missile defense problem:
          - This is just a convenient excuse for abuse between diplomats. agree, because in the event that you need to launch a missile strike in the United States, then it is more logical and faster to strike along the shortest path! and here it is necessary to pay attention to one moment, which is often ignored by the Americans - the Earth is round! accordingly, the shortest route for a rocket is over the Arctic Ocean, and not somewhere over China or Europe!

    During the exercise, questions of countering "provocations by the DPRK", as well as cyber attacks against military computer networks will be worked out. The answer to the “great juche” is predictable, we are waiting for news of the following content:

      North Korea is thinking about joining the two Koreas and asking for big money from the United States. South Korea is already in talks. The United States, while thinking and conducting reconnaissance of places, conducting exercises, is interested in how much they can ask for peace of mind.

    "During the exercise, questions will be worked out to counter" provocations by the DPRK "- the main provocation is the very fact of conducting such exercises in the immediate vicinity of the borders of North Korea. Do not go to the gypsy - there will be a rattling of weapons in response.
    ... The cobra crawled away, it was again pulled out of the hole by the tail, and at the same time they were surprised: it was necessary, hissing, threatening ... I had completely lost fear.
