6 April 2013. RIA-Novosti Infographics. The Balance of Forces on the Korean Peninsula

00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. The Balance of Forces on the Korean Peninsula. 2013


In late March, the DPRK said that relations between the two Koreas are now on a “war footing”, and Pyongyang would react accordingly in the case of “hostile provocation”, which could escalate into war… even a nuclear one. In early March, the DPRK protested against the holding of joint American/ROK military exercises, saying that it cancelled all agreements with the ROK on nonaggression and denuclearisation, and terminated the Armistice Agreement signed to end the Korean War. Besides that, the DPRK threatened to launch a nuclear attack on the USA.

What’s behind it all… a possible war on the Korean peninsula, its probable origins, and what are its possible consequences? It might look like a conflict between the DPRK and the ROK, but what positions might the USA, China, and Russia take in the event of such an eventuality?

What Will the North Korean “State of War” Rhetoric Result In?

00 Broken clock


  • 17 percent believe it’ll result in a war between the ROK and the DPRK with heavy American involvement
  • 15 percent believe it’ll end in World War III
  • 18 percent believe that the DPRK doesn’t have the firepower or equipment to launch a war
  • 45 percent believe that it’ll result in nothing. The DPRK is infamous for its empty rhetoric
  • 5 percent don’t know. They’re not familiar with the events on the Korean peninsula

Editor’s Note:

This was a VOR poll on the Russian side of the website. What did I vote for? Like most reasonable people, I opted for the fourth option, “It’ll result in nothing. The DPRK is infamous for its empty rhetoric”. The news one’s hearing in the USA is nothing but a Langley provocation and Fox News lies. Anyone who falls for it is a blithering chowderhead, and that’s all that there’s to say on the matter.

Syrian Army Defeats Rebels in Aleppo


Syrian troops repelled rebel attacks in Aleppo, the second most important city in the country. After three days of street fighting, the armed gangs retreated, failing to break government force defence lines. The army surrounded and crushed an al-Qaeda-linked rebel band that took part in the offensive. According to the SANA news agency, they killed over 100 mercenaries and terrorists. Syrian Air Force helicopters attacked a convoy of trucks moving to Aleppo from the Turkish border. The BBC reported that the fighting between government forces and rebels led to the destruction of a medieval market on the UNESCO World Heritage List. A fire started in the market situated in the Old City on Friday, 28 September, and it’s still raging now. The fire began because of a battle during which both sides used grenade-launchers and assault rifles.

Editor’s Note:

There’s no news on the Syrian victory in the Western media. If that isn’t proof that it’s unreliable propaganda, well, what is? Bashar al-Assad’s no prize package, but he’s not a bloodthirsty Islamist killer, either. Most Muslims are decent sorts who don’t want the kind of world that the Islamists want. Don’t fall for the hate from Fox News and from Willy’s camp.

Isn’t it funny… the people who peddle hate claim to love Jesus (trust me, He’ll tell them, “I know thee not!”)… it does make one think, doesn’t it?
