Korea, codenamed “critical determination” joint military exercises
Recently, the Korean Peninsula “smoke” filled.
2 24 February, North Korea announced the launch of the “bright 2″ communications satellite, the Japanese, U.S. and South Korean guard, accusing North Korea is to launch long-range missiles in fact, claimed to intercept them.
3 September, the annual Korea-US joint military exercise held in Korea, code-named “critical determination.” Unlike in the past, this exercise in terms of duration, force size and weaponry, are rarely seen in history.
this, North Korea reacted strongly. The first day of the exercise, which cut off North Korea and South Korea only a military hotline, blocked the DPRK’s Mount Kumgang tourist area and the Kaesong industrial park road leading to South Korea’s border, the mobilization of all soldiers ready for battle. British “Economist” magazine lamented, “the edge of a war game kicked off.”
DPRK dissatisfaction with the overall policy of the Lee Myung-bak outbreak
tensions in the Korean Peninsula involving North Korea, South Korea, United States, Japan and many other. Among them, belong to a nation with North Korea South Korea North Korea policy change is most unpleasant. One newspaper said the escalation of the situation can be said that North Korea policy of the Lee Myung-bak of discontent towards the marginalization of a general outbreak.
Ren Hanguo in February last year since President Lee Myung-bak, the former government to stop pursuing reconciliation and cooperation, national policy of mutual assistance, assistance to the DPRK would abandon its nuclear program and North Korea are linked. After South Korea asked North Korea rejected South Korean government to stop North Korea 500,000 tons of food aid and other assistance. Alone, appeared in 2008 North Korea $ 300 million funding gap.
in Lee’s diplomatic agenda, the Korea-US alliance is the most important for North Korea to be isolated and marginalized. In this regard, the DPRK put forward a super-tough for tough measures. First they hate, Taking propaganda, beginning in November last year in North Korea expelled South Korean businessmen and tourists, both rail traffic disruption. In January, the DPRK abolish its military and political confrontation both sides to eliminate the agreement, announced in February to launch satellites. Korea-US joint military exercises in March, to fuel inter-Korean relations have been deteriorating.
Lee Myung-bak’s North Korea policy to stimulate marginalized. In response, North Korea take the risk, once again make a tough stance.
DPRK and the U.S. wrestling:
North Korea test Obama administration policy toward North Korea
but this time North Korea for not only South Korea, and the main purpose was to test the U.S. administration’s policy toward the DPRK. Because North Korea knows that half a century since the Korean deep trouble lies in the United States. The breakthrough is also the United States out of the woods.
“What North Korea is to launch a satellite or a missile,” this week, the problem gradually taking shape. 10, Blair, Director of National Intelligence, said in testimony before Congress, the intelligence that North Korea is preparing to launch the satellite, rather than missiles. Two days later, Korean Central News Agency announced that North Korea has recently joined the United Nations under the “Peaceful Uses of Outer Space,” the relevant international treaties, and the issue has been launching satellites to ICAO, IMO were notified. South Korea’s launch time may be disclosed in the April 4 to 8, between the Kim Il Sung’s birthday eve. Mystery seems solved, doubts have not been eliminated. Blair said: “The launch of the satellite and missile technology is difficult to distinguish if the three North Korean rocket is really useful, it has the ability to turn the missiles hit the U.S. mainland.” Satellite launch caused tension, reflects the DPRK and the U.S. lie in the between the deep mistrust.
In January, Obama came to power after the implementation of the dialogue, diplomacy, once North Korea to see the dawn of peace. More than a month, he sent Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to East Asia, the appointment of former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea as North Korean envoy Bosworth, emphasis is evident. However, the current administration’s initiatives toward North Korea is also not see the novelty. He did not fundamentally change the Bush administration’s policy on the Korean peninsula. The first is to adhere to the first nuclear-free, the second is to insist on this issue the United States and Japan, South Korea to maintain coordination. Meanwhile in North Korea’s policy is to take the dual policy, one is to continue through dialogue and negotiation, on the other hand is to maintain military pressure. The escalation of the situation in North Korea, just over 50 days of the ruling is undoubtedly a test of the Obama administration.
hemp business in the general election
only three US-North-South struggle, Korean peninsula has been quite complex. Japan for domestic political considerations sword pay, making the problem even more complications.
3 11, when the tense inter-Korean relations, North Korean named Kim Hyon Hui beauty agent and former Japanese abductees Yaeko Taguchi’s family to meet in Korea.
According to Japanese media reports, the 1970s and 1980s, a dozen Japanese abducted by North Korea for training North Korean spies. Japan urged the DPRK to return the hostages, but North Korea replied that the hostages had missing. This is hot pursuit in Japan for many years and hold the abduction issue. Yaeko Taguchi, was kidnapped in 1978 in Tokyo. North Korea said she had died in a traffic accident in 1986. But with the explosion after the overthrow of the claim. In 1987, one from Baghdad to Seoul in mid air explosion of Korean Air crash. Manufacturing bombing North Korean agents Kim Hyun-hee captured alive. She confessed, Yaeko Taguchi taught her in Japanese, is still alive. 1990 Kim Hyun-hee was sentenced to death, one year after the amnesty, and then has been under police protection reclusive life in Korea. 2009, tensions on the Korean peninsula situation, the Korean government to arrange high-profile abductees Kim Hyun-hee and Taguchi’s son to meet, not a matter of chance. We used to think nothing good seems to come up with the Japanese abduction issue hinder what nuclear issue, Japan is isolated. But I did not expect four or five months from the last inter-Korean relations began to deteriorate slowly since the position of South Korea and Japan is getting closer. Associated Press analysis that South Korea and Japan close together to put pressure on North Korea, and its domestic politics are closely related. Compared to Lee Myung-bak, Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso of the situation but also embarrassing. Because of the recession, the Cabinet scandals, support for even the lows, seeing the election approaching, Aso government highlights the urgent need for diplomacy to ease the pressure of the people asked him to step down.
