I hate to be the tin-foil hat conspiracy theory guy but are you an employee of one of those Russian groups that Putin hires to go into public forums and write a bunch of nonsense just to mess with our heads?
It's a silly thought, but I can not come up with any other explanation of your responses here.
No, Iím American and live in the US.

As for my typos, I usually type on my phone and am prone to mistakes; I know I should spend more time looking over what I write before but nonetheless I assure you, English is my first language.

If he was a paid propagandist he would know more about what he is discussing. Heís obviously pretty clueless on North Korea. Iíd guess heís just some guy who hates America and tries to create rubbish to make people hate America too. Americaís foreign policy leaves a lot to be desired, if one wants to make America look bad, just talk about what we did in Guatemala or a handful of other countries. Very few people see the US in the wrong on N Korea, even Russia has become somewhat anti-North Korean and Russia hasnít officially sold military equipment to N Korea since the Soviet years of 1989.

Not true, I love America.

I just call strikes when I see them.

What strike? That America protected the sovereignty of the Koreans? You have literally refuted nothing. The Kims donít get to determine the destiny of all Koreans. They had no right to form a government. They were no more then opportunistic warlords.

Then you should be more open about calling out other countries when they try to pull off their own shenanigans, instead of just criticizing the US.

The best thing anyone can in private and public spheres is to focus on your own wrong doings and amend them.

The world doesnít change with people lecturing others, it changes by leadership by example. If you want to influence others fix yourself and motivate other that they should to.

Itís elementary philosophy.

Somehow that just "de-mystified" this entire thread. I pictured you, not as a Putin stooge, but as someone living in perhaps a former communist block authoritative country with limited access to information, no free press, subject to daily anti-west propaganda. That aspect is fascinating to explore.

The reality is that you are just a misguided American with ultra-extreme view is now....boring.

most of the former eastern blocs (except for Belarus which was part of the USSR) is filled with western propaganda.

sorry to let you down btw.

I'm also American living in the States, and for some reason it's not that uncommon to find another American with similar views as him. We're a plurality of opinions in that regard, for sure, lol (I'm being sarcastic).

I've also noticed that increasingly, CNN likes to air 'sanitized' coverage of North Korea, as in showing images of North Korea's 1% elite, etc etc. I've met some people who thought North was the one hosting the Winter Olympics because CNN couldn't stop talking about North Korea almost all of February.

I'm embarrassed sometimes to be living in a country where many people can't even locate where North Korea is on the map. There's a viral Jimmy Kimmel video where people were asked to find North Korea.

To Jimmy's (and everyone's horror), a surprising number of people picked Canada.

Impossible to compare me to those people.

I've lived in Iran. I'm much more aware of what is happening globally.
