DPRK - North Korea

Moderated by Tim Foufas
Traveled to this unique country in August 2010…one of the “Axis of Evil” countries. Surreal experience.

Smart analysis of N. Korea after Kim:

Robert Carlin, a former U.S. State Department official who took part in negotiations with North Korea from 1992-2000, said in 2008 that post-Kim scenarios prompt discussions of North Korea’s collapse by those on the outside because of their view of North Korea as an illegitimate state. But that’s not how North Koreans view their country, he says, noting “as far as I can tell they have a strong sense of nationalism and national identity.”

Astonishing public grieving in North Korea after the death of their leader Kim Jong Il. There must be something I’m missing here. It’s difficult to understand such extreme public displays of emotion over the passing any leader.

    This is what I find completely dubious:

    Jon Huntsman - CNN - writes the following:
    http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/category/north-korea/

    <<Kim Jong Il's passing closes a sad and tragic chapter for the people of North Korea. His 17-year reign will be remembered as a dark period in their history characterized by great suffering and steady and dangerous provocations to the outside world.>>

    Is Mr. Huntsman completely blind to the outpouring of sorrow by the N. Koreans over Kim Jong Il's death? His words in no way match what I'm seeing in the video above. It's safe to say that the a majority of N. Koreans loved Kim Jong Il.

    In the age of the Internet (easy/global information access) journalists like Jon Huntsman should try to give a more balanced picture of the what's actually happening, instead of pandering to a Western biased view of the events. It's not credible journalism.

    btw… Jon Huntsman is not a journalist. He's just a politician (former governor of Utah, former U.S. ambassador to China and candidate for the Republican nomination for president). So, narrow political speak is to be expected of him and most other politicians. Any journalist worth her salt would, I hope, never be so obtuse in their interpretation of the events in North Korea. I agree with you Ria. The North Koreans by and large revered the late Kim Jong Il.

    Whoa…hadn't seen this stuff…pretty intense over there! Looks like the country has grinded to a complete stop.

Has anyone seen the documentary Kimjongilia, about North Korea? The trailer looks very interesting.

    What an interesting documentary. I had never heard of it prior to now. The testimonials of those who managed to escape to South Korea are quite amazing. I hope their families in N.Korea didn't face reprisals for their participation in the film.

    Fascinating viewpoint - one seldom seen in the USA - a worthy topic for discussion, indeed.
