On Sunday, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) launched a short-range ballistic missile to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the death of ex leader Kim Jong Il. As expected, this launch made headlines in the West while there are nothing in the news concerning the dispatch of Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group from the Persian Gulf into the Gulf of Aden, off the coast of Yemen, to protect the ships transporting US modern weapons to Israel from recent attacks by Yemen’s Ansar Allah rebel movement also known as the Houthis. It is worth nothing that the DPRK was born under the protective umbrella of the Soviet Union. North Korea and north Vietnam became two members “observers” of the Comecom. Taught by the history the legacy of the Korean war, North Korean leadership know very well that the International relations are governed by the force not by set of rules, by so called international law and by moral considerations. A golden rule learned by North Korean leadership, contrary to Putin’s naivety, the West will not be trusted and to deal with the Behemoth, the only language that understands is the force and the balance of power supported by very powerful military, chiefly by nuclear power. Some international events gave it the certitude that in the International arena, the big fish devour the small ones. First before all, the the Gulf war in 1991 provoked behind the scene by the US with the main objective, attacking Iraq close ally of the USSR and annihilating its rising military power, bombing of Yugoslavia in 1991 during 78 days without mandate from the UN, invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001 under the false pretext, fighting Islamic terrorism, invasion of Iraq in March 2003 without mandate of the UN, colour revolutions fomented by the US in the ex Soviet Republics from 2004 to 2014, invasion of Libya in 2011 and its destruction and the murder of its leader by NATO under the false humanitarian principles, the right to protect (R2P)and NO FLY ZONE, attempt of invasion of Syria in 2011 by Jihadists mercenaries, funded and trained by the West, and last but not least, using Ukraine as battlefield by NATO members to attack and dismantle the Russian Federation, triggering the military special operation on February 24, 2022. All these US wars of aggression against weak countries convinced the North Korean leadership that only a powerful military, ballistic and intercontinental missiles added to nuclear weapons could play a dissuasive role and protect the nation in case of US war of aggression.
