A Letter to the DPRK
Posted by shivite12
To the desk of Mr. Kim Jong Un Great Leader of the DPRK,
The recent provocations from DPRK have struck a chord with the international community, and now the sympathy is so great we’d be happy to honor your temper tantrum with foreign aid. Yesterday, your drills came into our allied waters, and we upheld our promise to deliver fire right back at you. But now the fear of your retaliation is so great it only makes sense that we roll over and give you what you want. Were it only that easy for you. Humor me a moment: when a child sobs and throws a fit, is it right to reward that behavior with what the child wants? Of course not! This only encourages the poor behavior and leads to further confrontation down the road. Now why then, would you replicate this behavior? Do you see it leading to a place of positive result? When at the negotiating table, and lets be frank you have little to barter with, why put pride and the illusion of grandeur before the wellness of your nation? With outdated weapons, a poor infrastructure both socially and economically, atop famine and poor training amongst your people’s army? What’s your game? How long can you last in a tug-of-war you have, for all intents and purposes, already lost. Holding on to your old weapons and the dead dream of nuclear proliferation, abandoned by the International Community since the conclusion of the Cold War. I prefer not to make things overly personal when concerning the abuse of the rights of man, as it makes it harder to fight those who do wrong when blinded by passion. Yet I admit without regret, the abuses the DPRK have committed against a people they claim to only want the best for make me absolutely furious. I am not a violent man, nor am I one who typically wishes violence on my fellow man, but your regime in its entirety deserves no remorse upon your imminent downfall. You have picked the scab of the Korean War so profusely it has scarred into a chasm so great its image will not soon leave the memory of those affected and unaffected by your crimes. There will be order one day on our international stage, I truly hope you abandon your power and allow your people, at the very least, a chance at survival. The world is not unlike the wild Mr. Kim, and if the tiger may just let the antelope run, the antelope would be wise to seize the opportunity and live to fight another day.
