Tours to the DPRK are tightly scheduled and normally include a visit to the demilitarised zone, museums and statues to Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il, Pyongyang’s amusements parks, chandelier-laden metro system and showcase entertainment facilities such as the Circus and the SchoolChildren's Palace.

    Money & Power in North Korea Hidden Economy North Korea 2015 North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goguryeo, also spelled as Koryŏ. At the end of World War II in 1945, the Korean Peninsula was divided into two zones along the 38th parallel, with the northern half of the peninsula occupied by the Soviet Union and the southern half by the United States. Initial hopes for a unified, independent Korea evaporated as the politics of the Cold War resulted in the establishment of two separate states with diametrically opposed political, economic, and social systems. Soviet General Terentii Shtykov recommended the establishment of the Soviet Civil ...

  • ESCAPING FROM NORTH KOREA 2017 NEWEST DOCUMENTARY DEFECTOR'S SEARCH FOR FREEDOM DOCUMENTARY

    Since the division of Korea after World War II and the end of the Korean War (19501953), some North Koreans have managed to defect for political, ideological, religious, economic or personal reasons. Starting from the North Korean famine of the 1990s, more North Koreans have defected. The most common strategy is to cross the border into Jilin and Liaoning provinces in northeast China before fleeing to a third country, due to China being a relatively-close ally of North Korea. China, being the most influential of few economic partners of North Korea while the country has been under U.N. sanctions for decades, is also the largest and continuous aid source of the country. To avoid worsening the already tense relations with the Korean Peninsula, China refuses to grant North Korean defectors r...

  • WHY US DID NOT SHOOT DOWN THE NORTH KOREAN MISSILE FLYING OVER JAPAN?

    INTRODUCTION: North Korea carried out one of its most provocative missile tests in recent years on the morning of 27th August, hurling a ballistic missile directly over Japan that prompted the government in Tokyo to warn residents in its path to take cover. The missile flew over the northern island of Hokkaido and landed harmlessly in the sea, after a flight of nearly 1,700 miles. The missile was launched from a site near Pyongyang’s international airport, not the usual launch site in the northeast. The test appeared to have been of a recently developed intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missile. It is the same sort of missile that North Korean threatened to fire on the US territory of Guam. Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe said: “North Korea’s reckless action of launching a missile that...

Guam is located in the western Pacific Ocean, around 2,100 miles from North Korea. It is within the range of North Korea's medium- and long-range missiles, according to the Guardian. The 210-square-mile island is a U.S. territory. It has three U.S. military bases, including an air force base that hosts B52 bombers and fighter jets. Some 6,000 U.S. troops are stationed on Guam, which has a total population of around 162,000 people.

A Washington Examiner commentary suggests that the U.S. would likely deploy large groups of its navy and air force to Japan, Okinawa and Guam. A Stratfor analyst told Business Insider that they they'd also possibly maneuver submarines and ships closer to the North and target nuclear facilities through airstrikes. Helicopter-deployed buoys would listen for North Korean submarines, which could be destroyed by more advanced American underwater craft. Experts also reckon that the U.S. would not invade, but rather defend South Korea as the North Korean army charges the border. This scenario would also see U.S. special forces parachuting into strategic locations around Pyongyang for surgical strikes. If, ...

The cult of the Kims is perhaps the most extraordinary feature of the DPRK. Images or statues of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il are found everywhere. These graven images are effectively worshipped. This film shows scenes of the veneration of the Kims (Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il) that were witnessed. The government guides control both what you can see and also what you can take photographs of. If you take a photograph of the military, construction or something that they feel does not portray the DPRK in a positive light then they force you to delete the photograph. On exiting the country, the border guards also reviewed photographs to see if they conformed to the aforementioned standards. Despite these restrictions, this film contains images that accurately portray the state of the country as I saw it. --- Table of Contents --- 00:08 Overview of trip to North Korea (DPRK) 00:52 Beijing International Airport 01:40 Air Koryo to Pyongyang 02:31 US Navy visits the DPRK too 02:49 Pyongyang International Airport 03:13 Traffic policewoman directing traffic 04:09 Map of Pyongyang 04:19 pollution in Pyongyang 05:50 Chollima (mythical flying horse) 06:07 Arch of Triumph 07:04 Traffic policewoman in traffic 08:01 trolley bus ride 09:14 Pyongyang Metro System 11:56 Yanggakdo Hotel 13:19 6AM city wakeup call for Pyongyang 14:12 stockpiling gravel for construction 15:17 women encouraging hard work 16:07 Monument to Party Founding 16:39 Victorious War Museum (Korean War) 21:22 May Day in Moran Hill Park 21:53 Kaeson Youth Park 22:25 Mangyongdae Funfair 24:04 propaganda in Pyongyang 24:35 Mangyongdae Children's Palace 27:09 helicopter fightseeing over Pyongyang 30:07 Pyongyang Circus Theatre 32:43 Juche Tower 33:30 Kim Il Sung Square 34:20 Grand People's Study House 35:10 traffic policewoman 35:58 Jang Chon Model Cooperative Farm 37:29 luxury department store 37:58 peasants ploughing with oxen 39:22 Veneration of the giant Kim statues 43:18 Pyongyang at night 45:10 Mirae (Future) Scientists Street 45:48 Science and Technology Centre 47:14 View out over Pyongyang 48:05 Reunification Highway to Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) 49:59 Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) 52:39 Kaesong 59:00 Tomb of King Kongmin 1:01:10 Sokdamgugok (Sokdam Ravine) 1:01:40 Haeju 1:03:30 Suyangsan Falls 1:04:04 Sariwon 1:06:50 Mt.

Money & Power in North Korea Hidden Economy North Korea 2015 North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goguryeo, also spelled as Koryŏ. At the end of World War II in 1945, the Korean Peninsula was divided into two zones along the 38th parallel, with the northern half of the peninsula occupied by the Soviet Union and the southern half by the United States. Initial hopes for a unified, independent Korea evaporated as the politics of the Cold War resulted in the establishment of two separate states with diametrically opposed political, economic, and social systems. Soviet General Terentii Shtykov recommended the establishment of the Soviet Civil Authority in October 1945, and supported Kim Il-sung as chairman of the Provisional People's Committee for North Korea, established in February 1946. During the provisional government, Shtykov's chief accomplishment was a sweeping land reform program that broke North Korea's stratified class system. Landlords and Japanese collaborators fled to the South, where there was no land reform and sporadic unrest. Shtykov nationalized key industries and led the Soviet delegation to talks on the future of Korea in Moscow and Seoul. In September 1946, South Korean citizens had risen up against the Allied Military Government. In April 1948, an uprising of the Jeju islanders was violently crushed. The South declared its statehood in May 1948 and two months later the ardent anti-communist Syngman Rhee became its ruler. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea was established in the North on 9 September 1948. Shtykov served as the first Soviet Ambassador, while Kim Il-sung became Premier. Soviet forces withdrew from the North in 1948 and most American forces withdrew from the South the following year. Ambassador Shtykov suspected Rhee was planning to invade the North, and was sympathetic to Kim's goal of Korean unification under socialism. The two successfully lobbied Joseph Stalin to support a short blitzkrieg of the South, which culminated in the outbreak of the Korean War. Capital: Pyongyang Supreme leader: Kim Jong-un

Since the division of Korea after World War II and the end of the Korean War (19501953), some North Koreans have managed to defect for political, ideological, religious, economic or personal reasons. Starting from the North Korean famine of the 1990s, more North Koreans have defected. The most common strategy is to cross the border into Jilin and Liaoning provinces in northeast China before fleeing to a third country, due to China being a relatively-close ally of North Korea. China, being the most influential of few economic partners of North Korea while the country has been under U.N. sanctions for decades, is also the largest and continuous aid source of the country. To avoid worsening the already tense relations with the Korean Peninsula, China refuses to grant North Korean defectors refugee status and considers them illegal economic migrants. About 76% to 84% of defectors interviewed in China or South Korea came from the Northeastern provinces bordering China. If the defectors are caught in China, they are repatriated back to North Korea where they often face harsh interrogations and years of punishment, or even death in political prison camps such as Yodok camp, or reeducation camps such as Chungsan camp or Chongori camp. Even though the number of North Korean defectors reached its peak in 1998 and 1999, the estimated population is believed to have declined since then. Some main reasons for the falling number of defectors especially since 2000 are strict border patrols and inspections, forced deportations, and rising cost for defection. During the mourning period of Kim Jong-il 's death on December 17, 2011 and the start of Kim Jong-un's rule, the movements of people were tightened and strictly controlled. This included requiring families that live near the border areas to take turns standing guard, having strong official warnings that three generations of a family would be destroyed if caught defecting, as well as having the defector being executed on-site. The number of North Korean defectors has dramatically decreased as a result. One of the most prominent defections occurred in April 2016 by 13 North Korean restaurant workers in Ningbo, Zhejiang province of China. This group defection is significant to the human rights and forced repatriation issues of North Korea since the workers decided to defect in a group instead of monitoring each other. They also legally crossed the border between North Korea and China with official passports and visas issued from the North Korean government. After being educated on security and South Korean social issues, all 13 North Korean defectors were approved for social resettlement in August 2016. An interview request from Minbyun (Lawyers for a Democratic Society) regarding whether the defect was voluntary or not was ignored and rejected.

INTRODUCTION: North Korea carried out one of its most provocative missile tests in recent years on the morning of 27th August, hurling a ballistic missile directly over Japan that prompted the government in Tokyo to warn residents in its path to take cover. The missile flew over the northern island of Hokkaido and landed harmlessly in the sea, after a flight of nearly 1,700 miles. The missile was launched from a site near Pyongyang’s international airport, not the usual launch site in the northeast. The test appeared to have been of a recently developed intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missile. It is the same sort of missile that North Korean threatened to fire on the US territory of Guam. Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe said: “North Korea’s reckless action of launching a missile that passed over Japan is an unprecedented, serious and grave threat,” The missile test rattled the region increasingly concerned about North Korea’s fast-advancing missile capabilities and its increasingly bold way of demonstrating them. In this video, Defense Updates looks into 3 definitive reasons WHY US DID NOT SHOOT DOWN THIS MISSILE FLYING OVER JAPAN? So, lets get started. SCOPE: US has stationed classified number of Arleigh Burke class destroyers in the vicinity of Korean Peninsula. The Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyers is the United States Navy's first class of destroyer built around the Aegis Combat System. Currently Japan also has 6 Aegis-equipped destroyers. The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System is a United States DOD (Department of Defense) Missile Defense Agency program developed to provide missile defense against short to intermediate-range ballistic missiles. Aegis BMD is designed to intercept ballistic missiles post-boost phase and prior to reentry. It enables Arleigh Burke to shoot down enemy ballistic missiles by expanding the Aegis Combat System with the addition of the AN/SPY-1 radar and Standard missile technologies. Here are 2 points to take note: 1. The interceptor missiles are supposed to fired only when the trajectory of the incoming enemy missile is found be heading towards Japan’s landmass. In this case, it was clear that the North Korean missile was heading towards sea with no potential of causing any harm. 2. Aegis BMD is effective when the missiles travel within the defended area. The destroyers are obviously currently stationed in positions so that they protect Japan and don’t cover the vast open waters. Positioning the Aegis vessels to counter North Korean missile test is not a good idea, as doing so would mean taking them away from optimal positions to defend actual targets on land. GUARDING THE SECRET If US shoot down any North Korean missile which actually has no threat potential, it will give away some of the most crucial information regarding the capabilities of Aegis BMD and the deployment of Aegis enabled vessels. This will enable North Korea to choose a better trajectory and optimize the other parameters to evade the system when an actual missile strike is initiated. It must also be noted that Aegis BMD is a threat to China and Russia too and they are also watching the movements in Korean peninsula closely. Both of them are likely to mine as much as data as possible to understand the abilities of the system. A weapon is most effective if an ambiguity about its capabilities is maintained before the moment of actual use. US is doing exactly this. ESCALATE SITUATION FURTHER The United States and South Korea wrapped up their annual joint military exercises on 28th August by flying some of their most powerful warplanes in bombing drills in a show of force. Two B-1B supersonic bombers and four F-35 stealth fighter jets from the United States Air Force and Marine Corps joined four South Korean F-15 fighter jets in live-fire bombing exercises over a military range in eastern South Korea, officials said. South Korean F-15s conducted a similar bombing drill over the same range. It must be noted that Seoul, capital of South Korea is within 35 miles of the border. Covering only about 12% of the country's area, the Seoul Capital Area is home to more than 48.2% of the South Korea’s population, and is the world's third largest urban area. CONCLUSION: While the missile did fly over Japan, it is very likely that the missile test was not designed to signal Japan that it is now higher on the DPRK’s target list. It has more to do with geography than anything else. North Korea needs to accurately test its missiles to obtain a full measure of their capability and firing them over Japan is the most obvious choice. As the situation threatens to boil over, the main stakeholders South Korea, Japan and US need to come up with a more effective approach in dealing with North Korea.

HAGATNA, GUAMNorth Korea says it will soon be ready to launch missiles that will land near Guam, as tensions ramp up between Pyongyang and Washington. Guam is located in the western Pacific Ocean, around 2,100 miles from North Korea. It is within the range of North Korea's medium- and long-range missiles, according to the Guardian. The 210-square-mile island is a U.S. territory. It has three U.S. military bases, including an air force base that hosts B52 bombers and fighter jets. Some 6,000 U.S. troops are stationed on Guam, which has a total population of around 162,000 people. Guam is protected by the U.S. Army's THAAD[d] missile defense system, which is designed to shoot down ballistic missiles. North Korea's military is waiting for approval from Kim Jong Un to fire four rockets that will land in the sea about 17 miles from Guam, BBC News reported, citing North Korean state media. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has warned North Korea that any threat to the U.S. would be met with "fire and fury". ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — How would the U.S. military conduct a conflict against North Korea? A Washington Examiner commentary suggests that the U.S. would likely deploy large groups of its navy and air force to Japan, Okinawa and Guam. A Stratfor analyst told Business Insider that they they'd also possibly maneuver submarines and ships closer to the North and target nuclear facilities through airstrikes. Helicopter-deployed buoys would listen for North Korean submarines, which could be destroyed by more advanced American underwater craft. Experts also reckon that the U.S. would not invade, but rather defend South Korea as the North Korean army charges the border. This scenario would also see U.S. special forces parachuting into strategic locations around Pyongyang for surgical strikes. If, in the extremely unlikely scenario — North Korea hits Guam or another U.S. territory or ally — with a nuclear strike, the U.S. has the option to respond via land, sea or air. Most agree that the resulting American retaliation would lay waste to Pyongyang and kill thousands, if not millions. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

North Korea's rogue nuclear weapons program threatens global peace and security. These are the options available to United States President Donald Trump, ranging from diplomacy to military action.

President Trump has drawn a red line that the North will not acquire a missile capable of striking the U.S. mainland. But the North is not listening. They’ve been increasing their missile tests as they try to develop a rocket that can hit an American city. Let’s take a look at the options the U.S. has for dealing with North Korea. North Korea is the only country that has tested a nuclear weapon in the 21st century. In fact, it’s done it five times. After Kim Jong Un became Supreme Leader in 2011, the North began ramping up the frequency of its missile tests. In response to the growing threat, President Obama ordered the US military to use cyber and electronic strikes to sabotage the North’s test launches, just like it had done to Iran’s rogue nuclear facilities a few years before. The move worked, according to a recent investigative report by the New York Times: “Soon a large number of the North’s military rockets began to explode, veer off course, disintegrate in midair and plunge into the sea.” One medium range missile failed on 88 percent of its test launches, far higher than the 13 percent failure rate of the Soviet-era weapon on which it was based. These security breaches enraged Kim, who ordered the execution of five senior officials by a firing squad of anti-aircraft guns. But despite the setbacks, the North says it’s almost ready to test its first missile capable of reaching the United States. Even if this is just big talk, one thing is clear: our military does not currently have the ability to stop the North’s nuclear weapons program. After it successfully launched a satellite in 2016, it now may be able to strike targets up to 4,000 miles away. That not only puts South Korea and Japan well in range, but also India, parts of Northern Australia, US bases in the Pacific, and even Anchorage. But to hit the American mainland they’ll need to bust out the big boys. US intelligence estimates the North has six KN-08’s and is developing an upgraded version called the KN-14. Neither has been tested yet, but both could theoretically hit us here in the states. To defend against this type of intercontinental ballistic missile threat, we have a multi-layered, partially land-based missile defense system protecting the US mainland and our allies, but those systems have never been tested in live combat, have had high failure rates when tested so far, and would likely fail against a barrage of more than a handful of missiles. President Obama was so concerned by the situation, he warned President Trump that this was the most urgent problem confronting the United States. So what exactly are Trump’s options? Option #1 has just been taken: deploy the THAAD missile defense system to South Korea. The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense gives the pacific alliance another layer of protection against ballistic missiles alongside their existing patriot systems and Aegis equipped naval destroyers. By placing THAAD so close to the North, the US, Korea, and Japan have instantly enhanced their ability to track and respond to missile launches. But China is protesting the move, saying “it’s common knowledge that the monitoring and early warning radius of THAAD reaches far beyond the Korean Peninsula and compromises China’s strategic security.” They argue THAAD’s deployment could set off an arms race in the region. But this seems hypocritical considering how much China — as the North’s lone ally and largest trading partner — has already enabled its erratic behavior. Not to mention China’s rapid militarization of the South China sea. Option # 2 is for Trump to double down on Obama’s effort to sabotage North Korea’s missile tests. But this strategy could have unintended consequences if it emboldens Russia and China to try and disrupt US launch systems.
