Two North Korean Missiles Cause Unified Barrage of Retaliatory Propaganda Fire
|Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- NSNBC, an internet homepage of Denmark, posted an article titled "Two North Korean Missiles Cause Unified Barrage of Retaliatory Propaganda Fire" contributed by Christof Lehmann, a German expert on international issue, on June 29.
The article noted:
North Korean (DPRK) Head of State Kim Jong Un witnessed the test of two domestically developed tactical guided missiles. Similar events are regular occurrences in other arms-producing nations, but somehow, these two missiles caused a barrage of retaliatory propaganda fire launched by corporate western mainstream media.
KCNA, the official news agency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), reported that Kim Jong Un, in his function as First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, First Chairman of the National Defence Commission and Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, participated in the launch of what is described as a newly developed, cutting-edge ultra-precision tactical guided missile.
Both the photo opportunity for Kim Jong Un and the missile test were a success, assuring North Korean citizens about the Korean People's Army's short, medium, and long-range defense capabilities.
The test and photo-op were also reassuring the people of the People's Republic about the fact that the political and military leadership, including Kim Jong Un, are doing their utmost to prevent a repetition of the genocidal war that was being waged against Koreans by the United States.
The war that ground to a halt at the 38th parallel in 1953 is no longer ago than that many still can remember utterly devastated cities and the cave dwellings in which tens of thousands had to seek shelter from the U.S. carpet-bombing of undefended civilian cities.
Yearly U.S.-led military drills like Foal Eagle, Double Dragon, or Key Resolve and recent years' U.S. foreign policy, resulting in a war in Libya, Mali and Iraq-again, leave no doubt: a credible defense is necessary to deter the aggressor.
A Barrage of Retaliatory propaganda
The successful missile test didn't fail to provoke a barrage of retaliatory propaganda fire. The state-run BBC pointed out that:
The North is under UN sanctions over its weapons and nuclear porgrammes. It has carried out nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013 and is thought to have enough nuclear material for a small number of bombs.
The BBC failed to add that the DPRK's satellite launch was legal, that the underground nuclear weapons test was legal, that the sanctions were illegal and that both Russia and China had each their geopolitical reasons to go along with the illegal, U.S.-sponsored sanctions.
Another "noteworthy" fact about the BBC is that it never reported that U.S. troops in Korea use the UN designation illegally and that the U.S. defied the calls of three UN Secretary-Generals to stop the illegal use of the UN name.
The New York Times made a point, headlining that "North Korea Fires 2 Missiles in Defiance of U.N. Ban".
The NYT didn't explain whether the headline referred to an illegally imposed missile firing ban or to Ban, like Ban Ki-moon and his failure to work towards sanctioning the United States until it stops its fraudulent use of the UN name for U.S. troops in the Korean peninsula.
Other media that didn't fail to participate in the unified retaliatory propaganda barrage include Associated Press, CNN, ABC, Al Jazeera, Japan Times, Chicago Tribune, Global Gazette, Evening Express,… just to mention a few.
It is noteworthy that this unified propaganda barrage was launched after the launch of two missiles.
It is also noteworthy that the DPRK may have the material to produce five or six nuclear warheads and that the U.S. has an operational potential of thousands of nuclear ballistic missiles.
The most noteworthy fact may be that one U.S. administration after the other has either threatened the use of nuclear weapons against the DPRK or reserved to leave "all options on the table". Who would want to blame a responsible political and military leadership and the people for wanting to have a deterrent.
A unified corporate Western media celebrates U.S. missile tests.
June 22, 2014, only days before the DPRK launched two missiles across open sea, the Reuters news agency reports "U.S. missile defense system hits target in key test".
The report celebrates the successful flight test of the exercising elements of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that was launched by the 30th Space Wing and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency at the Vandenberg AFB, California June 22, 2014. It justified the test with potentially menacing threats from the DPRK.
Always happy to promote the special relationship between the U.S. and the United Kingdom, the M15 and M16 infested "the guardian" didn't let the Atlantic partners down, celebrating the first successful U.S. ballistic missile test since 2008.
Joining "the guardian" in the celebratory propaganda choir were, among others:
The IB Times, The Wall Street Journal, Raytheon, NewsMax, FOX News, The Statesman, CNN, Yahoo,… among many others.
None reported the fact that one of the primary objectives with using so-called defensive anti-ballistic missile systems is to secure a first-strike capability. None promoted any ban, or demanded that Ban Ki-moon should reprimand the U.S., or reiterate the UN's call on the U.S. to stop its fraudulent use of the UN designation for its U.S. troops in the Korean peninsula under the UN command.
