The blackmail continues

If anyone wonders why I have not written about recent events on the penninsula, should check my previous posts. Because this is nothing new in the historical perspective. 

Each time there was a shift of power in any communist or autoritarian regime in the world media started tango of guessing what changes it does bring, wether there will be some revolution, collapse, shift of policy etc. etc. etc. 

What usually happened was nothing. There was never any significant change, shift of policy or whatever else. Null. Zero. Not after Krushchev had taken over Stalin, not after Deng had taken over Mao and sorry not after younger Kim takes over older Kim. Just like nothing changed in China it also will not change in North Korea, not for better I am afraid. 

What may and will likely happen is intensification of a historical blackmail course. I have already written here before that Phenian or Pyeongyang as you prefer can actually destroy Seoul with a normal artillery not much different from one used 100 years ago. So why nukes? 

Because blackmail is easier. It already repeats and repeats. North korea makes a missile test, shells some island or sinks a ship. South is afraid. North says "give us some rice and money and we leave you alone for a while". This story continues on and on and on ever since major communist powers in the world had collapsed and North korea is literally alone. Cause if it strikes South even China won't say "hey let's help our little brother". Too much trade profits at stake, and South Korea is a major trade partner of China. 

Expanding missile range might get into blackmail game USA and this will be the only change. Change for worse. 

And the sad reality of death camps and hunger, starvation and cannibalism in the North will last. If anyone ever praised communism should go there and stay there and enjoy if he can.
