My religion-of-peace stalker left two more scintillating messages: "fuck you motherfucker" and "fuck you asshole."

Bloomberg reported that "Kim [Jong-un, the third family dictator of the DPRK,] hopes to sign a peace treaty with Trump -- a long-held goal of the North Korean regime."
Historical facts do not support Bloomberg's bizarre assertion that peace is a "a long-held goal" of North Korea's leadership, unless it's under brutal North Korean terms.
The list of crimes committed by the DPRK starts with:
- The 1976 axe murders of two U.S. military officers in the DMZ.
- The Blue House raid, where North Korean commandos tried to assassinate the South Korean president.
- The bombing of Korean Air Flight 858 just before the Seoul Olympics, killing 115 passengers and crew.
- The sinking of the South Korean corvette Cheonan, killing 46 military personnel.
Kim is simply playing the same game his father taught him. He wants to be the dictator of the entire Korean peninsula and increase the size of his labor camps, which hold anywhere from 120,000 to 200,000 political prisoners.
Bloomberg should stick to reporting financial news.
The Muslim who left the following message is equally deficient with English, history, and manners, with Muslims often denigrating Christians by referring to them as "crusaders":
"go fuck yourself , with your lies , christian are the agressors from the beginning , they invaded syria , egypt , north africa and forced religion their."
Before 'M' died in 632, he instructed his followers to spread Islam by the sword. They took him at his word, invading the Iberian peninsula in 711. Exactly 100 years after the death of 'M,' the Islamic barbarians were finally stopped at the Battle of Tours by forces led by Charles Martel. Muslims were not completely thrown out of the Iberian peninsula until the turn of the century -- 1500, that is.
Before Muslims were prevented from streaming into the rest of Europe at the Battle of Tours, all of north Africa and Central Asia had been forcibly converted to Islam.
As for Palestine, Syria, Egypt, and North Africa -- the Middle East was largely Christian until murderous Muslims invaded -- they were conquered much more quickly than the Iberian peninsula. Syria was conquered by 636. Egypt was conquered by 641. Mesopotamia and the Persian Empire were conquered by 650.
The first of the Crusades, on the other hand, did not start until 1095.
I'm not the one filled with lies.
North Korea has breathlessly called for "independent unification" of the two Koreas.
"Let all Koreans rise up in the peace-keeping struggle against war to baffle the reckless nuclear war moves of the U.S. which brings disaster to this land, setting dangerous flames," read the official statement.
"Let us smash the moves of the separatist forces at home and abroad and dynamically usher in a fresh phase of national reunification, holding aloft the banner of national independence and by our nation itself," it continued.
Bolshevik rhetoric is usually heard in Kim Jong-un's New Year's address, though it's especially strident this year due to the Winter Olympics being held in South Korea, not to mention that Moon Jae-in, the current president of South Korea, was a major player in the second half of the Sunshine Policy, the appeasement strategy employed by two consecutive liberal governments from 1998 to 2008.
Just a short time ago Kim was channeling his inner Khrushchev, bantering with his management-style soulmate, Donald Trump, telling the U.S. that North Korean nuclear weapons were rolling off conveyor belts like sausages, or the Korean version thereof.
South Korea constantly offers to schedule family reunions for the people separated by the Korean War, a population which is rapidly decreasing due to old age. Reunions could be held every month, but sometimes there are none for years due to North Korean intransigence.
North Korea could open its borders and allow North Koreans to travel to Seoul, but then again, most of the country would leave in a few weeks.
North Korea could allow the UN to visit its labor camps where as many as 200,000 political prisoners are being held in conditions the Nazi SS would recognize. But instead Kim is trying to convince South Koreans to massively expand the camps with hundreds of thousands of new residents.
Kim's message will certainly resonate with liberals and communists.
In Dimitri Volkogonov's Autopsy for an Empire, Kim Il-sung, the founder of the DPRK and grandfather of current DPRK dictator Kim Jong-un, is quoted as saying to Terenti Shtykov, Soviet Ambassador to North Korea, early in 1950: "Now that the liberation of Korea is nearing completion, the question arises of liberating Korea in the south of the country ... The partisans will not settle the issue. I cannot sleep at night, thinking of how to deal with the question of unifying the whole country."
Kim Il-sung responded to Stalin's congratulations in August 1950: "We are firmly resolved to fight to a victorious conclusion in the struggle against the American interventionists who have been trying to enslave Korea again."
This explains why Kim Jong-un is ecstatic in his dealings with nuclear scientists and rocket engineers, because he is getting close to fulfilling his grandfather's dream of reunifying Korea under brutal DPRK terms. North Korea will soon be able to blackmail the U.S., the country which pretty much single-handedly prevented Kim Il-sung from occupying South Korea starting on June 25, 1950, the start of the Korean War, when North Korean tanks and troops invaded, by forcing the U.S. to either stay out of it or trade a major U.S. city for Seoul.
Stalin said to Chou En-lai in August 1952: "The Americans are not able to carry on a big war. All their strength is in air raids, the atom bomb. The Americans are merchants. It took the Germans twenty days to conquer France; the USA haven't been able to deal with little Korea for two years. What kind of force is that? You cannot win a war with the atom bomb." This might have led to Mao's view that the atom bomb was a "paper tiger."
The many pundits who tout the nuclear superiority of the U.S. simply do not get it. The DPRK has 10,000-20,000 artillery pieces, many with chemical munitions, situated in hardened bunkers dug into the hillsides just north of the DMZ, all within range of Seoul. And these bunkers have their entrances on the northern side of the hills, where South Korean and U.S. artillery cannot get to them. North Korea could kill millions of South Koreans before the U.S. could destroy all of the bunkers. As I wrote before, the U.S. military does not possess enough smart bombs and cruise missiles, or the capability to deploy them quickly enough, to eliminate all of North Korea's artillery.
It may already be a fait accompli, as North Korea has in excess of twenty nuclear devices, though they have not yet been miniaturized to fit on missiles. We pass more and more sanctions, yet they are ineffective because China does not enforce them, with China sharing all but 11-12 miles of their common border. China lies to us and we accept it because libertarian parasites such as Jeff Bezos and Tim Cook are raking in too much loot via trade with China.
The Soufan Center reported: "[Islamic State's] appeal will outlast its demise, and while it will be hard to assess the specific threat posed by foreign fighters and returnees, they will present a challenge to many countries for years to come ... from 2015, there was a marked rise in the number of foreign women and children traveling to or, in the case of children, being born in the Islamic State ... the number of attacks inspired or directed by the Islamic State continues to rise. All returnees, whatever their reason for going home, will continue to pose some degree of risk ... There are now at least 5,600 citizens or residents from 33 countries who have returned home. Added to the unknown numbers from other countries, this represents a huge challenge for security and law enforcement entities."
The problem has always been that Islamists believe that the Koran, with all of its violence, intolerance, misogyny, and oppression, is the literal word of Allah. Turkey, while not as fundamentalist as Saudi Arabia, demonstrates this attitude with respect to its new textbook which defines women's "obedience" to men as a form of "worship." But government officials said that is understandable as the book is about Islam and quotes Koranic verses.
"Allah says it, not me. Should I correct him, or what?" rhetorically asked Alpaslan Durmus, who chairs the Board of Education.
Men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined Islamic State because of the group's use of slavery and rape.
The Henry Jackson Society reported: "Men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined Islamic State because of the organisation's systemic use of rape and slavery as a form of terrorism ... The promotion and sanctioning of sexual violence by the extremist group was a pivotal means of 'attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters' as well as punishing kaffir, or disbelievers ... Analysis of [Islamic State] members from Europe and the US found that a cohort had a history of domestic and sexual violence, suggesting a 'relationship between committing terrorist attacks and having a history of physical and/or sexual violence'."
And it's not just men, as British female jihadists were the most brutal. The women who joined the caliphate were not misquided dreamers. They were true believers in the cause.
Sometimes Islamists have been allowed to leave a city alive by their fellow Islamists, ones previously supported by the Obama administration.
Much better was the policy of the U.S. which advised to simply kill all jihadists.
"If the jihadis perish in this fight, I would say that's for the best," said French Defence Minister Florence Parly.
We should slightly paraphrase and take to heart the WWII article of Red Star writer Ilya Ehrenburg, who was born in a non-religious Jewish family, with respect to Islamists:
"Islamists are not human beings. From now on the word Islamist means to use the most terrible oath. From now on the word Islamist strikes us to the quick. We shall not speak any more. We shall not get excited. We shall kill. If you have not killed at least one Islamist a day, you have wasted that day ... If you cannot kill your Islamist with a bullet, kill him with your bayonet. If there is calm on your part of the front, or if you are waiting for the fighting, kill an Islamist in the meantime. If you leave an Islamist alive, he will behead a non-Muslim and rape a Yazidi woman. If you kill one Islamist, kill another -- there is nothing more amusing for us than a heap of Islamist corpses. Do not count days, do not count kilometers. Count only the number of Islamists killed by you. Kill the Islamist -- that is your grandmother's request. Kill the Islamist -- that is your child's prayer. Kill the Islamist -- that is your motherland's loud request. Do not miss. Do not let up. Kill."
AFP's headline, Thinking the unthinkable in China: Abandoning North Korea, is entirely misleading.
The article itself is better. It goes on to quote Chinese officials such as Jia Qingguo, dean of the School of International Studies at Peking University, who proposed that China could send its army to North Korea to create a "safety zone" to prevent a massive flow of refugees across the border.
In other words, he is proposing to transform North Korea from a buffer zone against the U.S. into a true vassal state, not that different from Tibet.
Barthelemy Courmont, a China specialist at the Institute of Strategic and International Relations in Paris, and a China groupie, said Pyongyang's downfall could be good for Beijing, especially economically.
"China now believes that a collapse of North Korea would not necessarily be to its disadvantage," Courmont said. "If North Korea were to fall in a peaceful way, China would be best positioned for its reconstruction. China is the only country capable of overseeing the reconstruction of North Korea."
On the contrary, South Korea is best positioned for reconstruction, by far, especially since the current president, Moon Jae-in had parents who were born in North Korea, not to mention his serving in ROK special forces. He has feet in both countries.
China would be a classic occupier. It would treat North Koreans as it always has, worse than farm animals. The proof of this is China's non-compliance of multiple UN treaties.
The UN Refugee Convention was originally drafted in 1951, with a 1967 Protocol. China signed both in 1982. China signed the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment in 1987. These treaties expressly forbid the deportation of refugees back to a country where they will be tortured, imprisoned, and executed, which is exactly what happens to North Koreans when they are returned to the DPRK. Both treaties were signed well after China replaced the ROC in the UN in 1971, so China cannot claim that it inherited conditions of which it was unaware.
And it's unlikely that North Korea would fall in a peaceful way, given the 120,000-200,000 slaves in the labor camps who would be massacred by the guards on standing orders dating back to Kim Il-sung to eliminate all witnesses to the torture and summary executions inflicted by the guards. China has its own labor camps, from which organs are routinely harvested to give to the elite, so the deaths of Koreans would be a mere statistic.
It's likely is that an implosion of North Korea would result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands, as the RAND Corp. noted, as well as a serious risk of a five-way war between China, Russia, North Korea, South Korea, and the U.S.
If China is allowed to take control of North Korea, there won't be a happy ending.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the U.S. is in "direct contact" with North Korea and was "probing" the possibility of talks with Pyongyang, "so stay tuned."
"We have lines of communications to Pyongyang," he said during a trip to China. "We're not in a dark situation."
Like every administration before it, the Trump version has fallen for the classic DPRK game of demonstrating violence and then pretending to settle peacefully, though never giving back any of its gains in weaponry. This has gone on since the peace talks in Panmunjom when the DPRK would tell UN negotiators that the line had moved during the night, forcing yet another redrawing of it. Kim 3.0 has proved to be the best yet with his threat to explode a nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean.
North Korea will come out of this with nuclear weapons and delivery systems thereof suitable to prevent the U.S. from intervening in Korean War 2.0, though the Donald will trumpet the agreement as yet another example of his Art of the Deal persuasive powers.
Boxing photographer George Kalinsky famously told Angelo Dundee regarding Muhammad Ali's upcoming "Rumble in the Jungle" fight with George Foreman: "Why don't you try something like that? Sort of a dope on the ropes, letting Foreman swing away but, like in the picture, hit nothing but air."
Only this time the dope is Donald Trump.
Your speech at the UN was full of apocalyptic visions and bombastic threats of what the U.S. military, the most fearsome the world has ever seen, will do to North Korea.
It was the worst possible speech you could have made.
North Koreans have been told since they could walk that Americans are baby killers. There are countless paintings of Americans killing peaceful North Koreans -- and ones of Americans being bayoneted by North Korean soldiers. You are reinforcing their education.
Here is the speech you should have made:
"North Korean citizens, you have been told many lies. The U.S. and South Korea did not invade your country on June 25, 1950. Your country invaded in force with a large number of tanks. Then after U.S. forces approached the Yalu river, China intervened in force because it did not want the U.S military near its border. The war ended where it began, at the 38th parallel.
Over the years, the North Korean government has murdered many innocent people. It shot down KAL flight 858 with 115 people on board. One of the two bombers lives in South Korea today and has shared her story, not to mention her pain at the thought of being responsible for so many deaths.
China is using North Korea as a buffer zone. It does not care if you live or die, witnessed by the fact that it deports all North Korean refugees back to the DPRK, to certain torture, imprisonment, or execution, even though it has signed a few treaties forbidding exactly that treatment of refugees.
Contrary to what you have been told, the U.S. does not want to be in Korea. We would rather spend our money at home. Our military is only there because Kim Il-sung, then Kim Jong-il, and now Kim Jong-un still want to reunify the peninsula under DPRK terms, meaning that instead of 120,000-200,000 political prisoners in labor camps, there might be millions.
The proof of this is Japan, which was our sworn enemy in WWII. Today they are just one of many countries with which the U.S. has friendly relations, along with Germany and the other former members of the Axis power.
We realize it is a difficult task we ask you to do -- eliminate Kim Jong-un -- given the layers of security he has. But as soon as you do that, you will be free to buy Samsung televisions, watch South Korean soap operas, listen to K-pop, and speak with your family and friends without fear of being sent to a labor camp.
The perfect person for reunification, Moon Jae-in, is now leading South Korea. His parents were from North Korea. He will be the one leading reconciliation.
We want North Koreans to be free to decide their own fate."
The New York Times rhetorically asked: "What does Kim Jong-un want?"
The authors danced around the truth when they wrote that Kim 3.0's "real goal may be blackmail ... the sort that would be possible as soon as North Korea can put Los Angeles or Chicago or New York at risk."
They took a break from dancing when they wrote: "Keeping nuclear weapons is also how the Kim regime can best engender fear and loyalty in the country's populace."
In truth, Kim 1.0, Kim Il-sung, created the world's best way of keeping his people in line by imprisoning both the generation above and below anyone who commits even trivial offenses against the Kim family. Anywhere from 120,000 to 200,000 people are kept in labor camps where torture and executions are commonplace, where inmates appeared like "walking skeletons, 'dwarfs,' and 'cripples' in rags," with around 1,500 to 2,000 of them dying of malnutrition each year. Not to mention songbun, Kim Il-sung's brilliantly evil caste system where 25% of the population is regarded as core, 55% is regarded as wavering, and 20% is regarded as hostile.
Andrei Lankov, someone who knows quite a bit regarding North Korea, said: "If the Americans face a choice between San Francisco and Seoul, they will choose San Francisco."
The New York Times should have researched Lankov a little more.
North Korea is much worse than Estonia, which during the Cold War was able to watch Finnish television and therefore knew that Soviet propaganda was nonsense. North Koreans are thrown into the labor camps, along with their extended families, simply for listening to K-Pop.
Regarding the information-deprived North Koreans, Lankov noted: "Until the late 1950s, North Korea claimed that in 1945 Korea was liberated by the Soviet troops, while Kim Il Sung's forces were seldom if ever mentioned. Of course, in those days the official media praised the Soviet Union at the time and described it as a 'liberator.' In the early 1960s, the line changed: the North Korean media began to criticize the Soviet Union and praise China, while references to the Soviets' role in liberation all but disappeared. From the late 1960s, it was claimed that the country was liberated by the glorious fighters of Kim Il Sung who allegedly defeated the Japanese Empire more or less single-handedly."
It's pretty much the same tactic Stalin employed when he removed his dead opponents from photos.
Lankov hit the nail on the head with his comment regarding the motives of Kim 3.0: "In the long-term, however, they still want to absorb South Korea by force, so Pyongyang thinks their ICBMs can dissuade the US from intervening in a military crisis on the Korean peninsula. They wanted to (absorb South Korea) back in 1950, but couldn't because of the US military intervention."
Dear New York Times: it's the upcoming invasion of South Korea, stupid.
