DPRK, probably the only nuclear power who is justified in having nuclear weapons to defend itself courtesy of 60 years of aggression from the USA. If only they could get themselves statesmen to lead them.

Are you sure it is only the U.S.A. to blame for N Korea's aggressive behaviour???

There would be no Korean Issue if the Soviets at the end of WW II had not meddled in intra-Korean politics, supporting a communist party that was not widely popular in the South and had to relocate to the North to be revived and eventually installed as the ruling clique. Kortea could be a united country had there never been a Cold War and had there never been a communist design on imposing communist dictatorships all over the world.

Right....but on the very fundamental american values?  

Freedom?
Freedom?


Even in a country that truly has a representative democracy freedom is a myth because there will always be those in a minority who are denied their freedoms.

I do not condone terrorist attacks.

I am non-violent and anti-war.

What exactyly is "terrorism"? Some freedom fighters resort to violence; when they do that established governments resort to calling them "terrorists". Al Quaeda was Usania's buddy in overthrowing the Afghan government (in collusion with the Chinese Communists!).

So Al Quaeda was a "legitimate" force until you people in the U.S.A. changed your minds...

No the USA are not solely responsible, it is a chicken and egg scenario. But when a minor power is threatened by a major power armed and prepared to use nuclear weapons proactively then getting your own nuclear weapons seems like an intelligent response. If you removed the USA from the equation then it is unlikely that the DPRK would have felt the need for nukes.

Western nations have only been terrified of communism because it is a threat to the ruling elite who would be deposed. However, if you leave a communist state to it's own devices then it will evolve naturally. But if it feels threatened then trenches are dug to reinforce the beliefs just as happens in a capitalist society when their power base is threatened. In theory communism is a fairer way to administer a country but, as illustrated by George Orwell, human nature demands the benefits of a capitalist society and the concept of "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others" trickles down to all levels of society.

"Freedom Fighters" become "terrorists" the moment that they deliberately use violence against the general public in order to advance political gains.
