- North Korea – paper tiger?
If you keep the public in a constant state of fear of the unknown, you have complete control over them
Who’s scared of the unknown? The west? (I’m not) the North Koreans (likely) Iran (even more likely)Posted 5 years ago

The North Koreans are pretty much realiant on foreign aid to feed their people.
But they also have nuclear weapons and one of the largest standing armies in the world.
The most amazing thing about the North Korean regime is the fact it has survived so long. Totalitarianism it seems is a pretty successful form of government.Posted 5 years ago
So their highly controversial and ‘threatening’ rocket launch failed fairly spectacularly
is this not a demonstration to show that actually there’s very little to fear, and that Iran is also possibly and empty threat?
Is this all just political posturing to make us feel threatened and side with our weak leaders (I’m looking at Cameron and Obama here)Posted 5 years agoBerm BanditMember
Does make you wonder what the yanks have up their sleeve doesn’t it? All I know is that each stage of their “secret” technologies have only become public when it suited them. By the time we knew about U2 the Blackbird was nearly an antique, when we knew about that people were reporting stealth fighters as UFO’s and so on. Personally I reckon you can bet your bottom dollar that if we knwow about the missle nailing laser they are well past that already. Who knows?Posted 5 years agoJoeGSubscriber
Successful launch of a satellite is 1950s technology. The Soviets first did it in 1957.
In the past, sometimes North Korea has followed missile failure with a nuclear test; mid-40s technology that the can’t get right, either.
I wonder what level North Korean mountain bike technology is at?Posted 5 years ago
