Painting Kim Jong Un's meeting w/ Putin as an attempt by Kim to re-establish ties w/ Russia in the face of stalled talks w/ the US misses the mark. Under Kim, officials at senior and working levels from both countries have been meeting regularly for years.

You mean the media covering this? Except the AP piece was straight up solid reporting.

❤️ Korean farmers. “The collective gathered in front of the North Jeolla Provincial Office and released a statement on Apr. 23, saying it is the right of the Korean people to determine their own destiny, citing the Panmunjom Declaration.” They’ll go on 4/26 to US Embassy. 👏🏽✌🏼

These are so-called “freedom fighters” and “human rights defenders”... what an upside down world we live in. No matter how you feel about North Korea, this is a diplomatic compound. Even in wartime, embassies are off limits. Good on the judge and for pressing for free press.

Wow. “The group — armed with machetes, iron bars, knives and fake guns — beat some of the workers and then tied them up with shackles and cables, prosecutors alleged. They put bags over some of the workers' heads, beat them and threatened them with the metal bars and guns...”

“It’s no secret that only a couple hundred people within the DC Blob decide foreign policy for the entire country. And systemic biases that favor white, cisgender, heterosexual, wealthy, able-bodied men clearly contribute towards the homogenization of Expertise.”

Forget ping-pong diplomacy, basketball diplomacy, hockey diplomacy. The only quintessentially Korean way to reconcile is hiking diplomacy.

Heartening result of two Koreas peace process: dismantling war and division. “The U.S.-led United Nations Command gave the green light on Tuesday for South Korea to start developing hiking trails in the heavily fortified border that divides the peninsula.”

This patently false as points out. North Korea hasn’t filed a complaint; this was a violent crime committed against members of the diplomatic community. This is insane framing is parroting propaganda. Thankfully the Dept of Justice is honoring international law.

Tim Shorrock always digging the truth, as hard and complex as it is. If you have any insight/knowledge about this former US Marine or the terrorist group, please contact him. This group is the definition of rogue.

Fawning piece on Camp Humphreys but actually quite a good overview on how the base fits into US military empire in East Asia more broadly. Pretty explicit that the Koreans paid for a base from which the US could check China's expansion
