Doherty at last is actually reporting on an actual event, not something made up. The British salon owner and his son did the right thing in removing an unflattering poster of Kim Jong Un upon the request of the DPRK embassy. If they hadn't they may have been murdered etc. It isn't like this first time that the DPRK would murder people. On November 29, 1987, Korean Air Flight 858 was blown up by North Korean agents. That's the kind of regime you're dealing with. If DPRK come a knocking--expect bad things to happen. Published reports from the ROK say that North Korean authorities sent 200 good-looking women to China against their will to work for the country. The report goes on to say: “In July last year, some 200 pretty young women from fair family background were sent to Shenyang. They will stay there for three to five years. They are expected to engage in seafood-packaging for $100 a month.” So only pretty girls can pack seafood? For "seafood-packing" I read "human trafficking."
Really. When did Mr Doherty write about the DPRK drones, and Japanese?
So the flame thrower story gets a write up but the those three unmanned drones sent from the DPRK into the ROK doesn't get a mention. Now those drones were primitive and they were not capable of attack. They were not useful for spotting on the March 31, artillery barrages. But the ROK does have the resources to develop defenses against these drones which they will with dispatch. I also read Japan has ordered its Aegis class destroyers to shoot down missiles launched by the DPRK. You'd think that would get a mention, but no. All we get is nonsense about wild dogs, haircuts and flamethrowers.
The Korea Times is reporting that there have been two drone crashes--on March 24 and one on March 31, 2014. The one on March 24 was found in Paju, Gyeonggi Province after it crashed. The Ministry of National Defense (MND) said the UAV took a total of 193 photographs while in flight, including some of the presidential office and military installations. The DPRK has tipped its hand and given the ROKA information about its capability to scout out targets. Now the ROKA will take measures against this.

Walter E. Williams writes 100% of columns signed by Walter E. Williams. No doubt some people find this grossly offensive as it does not reflect the diversity of our great country. Say this country's population is 18% Hispanic--then shouldn't 18% of the columns signed by Walter E. Williams actually be written by an Hispanic instead of the 0% currently?
It was about one year ago when President Park called the Defense Minister and the leadership of the ROK's military to the Blue House and announced a new policy for dealing with threats from the DPRK. No longer would military units have to wait for orders on how to respond DPRK provocations--commanders and soldiers in the field were ordered to respond immediately and decisively to these provocations. On March 31, 2014 the DPRK forces, at the end of their winter training cycle, had an artillery exercise during which about 100 shells landed in ROK controlled waters. ROKA military responded with 300 shells shot into DPRK waters, and the DPRK stopped the exercise. The decision to respond to the DPRK was taken in the field, not at ROKA headquarters or the Blue House. President Park's policy, and the ROKA's strategy and tactics worked well. I'm sure there is room for improvement, and I'm sure there will be a review, but from press reports freedom loving people should be pleased with the results of the policy, strategy and tactics and of the commanders and soldiers in the field who these carried out. President Lee Myung-bak, the previous President of the Republic of Korea made the mistake of listening to our president, secretary of state and secretary of defense when the DPRK shelled the island and sank the ROK ship. President Park hasn't made that mistake.
It was about a year ago that President Park brought to the Blue House the Defense Minister and the Generals of the ROKA, and announced a change to the rules of engagement. No longer would soldiers have to wait for orders on how to respond to DPRK provocations--now the soldiers were ordered to respond to provocations decisively and without regard to political considerations. On March 31, 2014 we see the results of such a policy. When the Peoples’ Army of the DPRK launched a series artillery barrages, some of which landed in ROA territorial waters the ROKA’s artillery responded in kind, and the DPRK backed down and stopped. President Park’s policy, along with the ROKA’s strategy and tactics, and the commanders and soldiers in the field are vindicated. Instead of waiting around for Seoul to get permission to respond in kind, the ROKA responded in kind immediately. President Lee was the President of the ROK before President Park. He was very successful but he listened to our president, secretary of state and secretary of defense when the DPRK shelled an ROK island and sunk an ROK ship. President Park refuses to stand around like a chump when the DPRK acts up. Good for President Park, and good for the ROK.
It wasn't Putin who first took the measure of our president. It was President Park of the ROK. In March 2013, when the DPRK routinely threatened the ROK with a sea of fire etc, President Park brought to the Blue House the Defense Minister and the Generals of the ROKA, and announced a change to the rules of engagement. No longer would soldiers have to wait for orders on how to respond to DPRK provocations--now the soldiers were ordered to respond to provocations decisively and without regard to political considerations. And looked what happened--the DPRK backed down--and President Park has had state visits to the USA, the PRC etc. President Park stands in stark contrast to President Lee, who was talked out of responding to DPRK provocations by our president, secretary of state and secretary of defense.
