North Korean authorities are using the CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt's visit to the rogue state as a propaganda, but the North Korea people are cynical of the efforts. The action of inviting Eric Schmidt, even when the country has no thought of opening up the internet, is to beg. In Korean, the word begging is pronounced 'Googul' which sounds similar to Google. The Kim Jong-un's regime is walking a road of international isolation. Yet, they don't try to solve the fundamental problem. They will merely use all their resources into begging for aid not only from nations, but also from companies now. This will definitely look ugly in the eyes of its people.

Umm -- to drum up more high-profit business for his huge corporation, maybe? Typical American. If there is one tree left standing in a forest, cut it down for more profits.

What, in this incident, is "typical North Korean"? The real story made absolutely no reference to the response of North Korea, the OP is nothing but the poster's usual presentation of his own BS about North Korea, not based on any factual information whatsoever. I challenge the OP to provide one single link to any "reaction" by North Korea's government or any citizen. We have no idea what North Korea thought of the visit, nor does the OP, who will never come back and follow up on this thread, nor any of his previous 11 threads, which are all pure crap and his own personal imagination.

The OP is using C-D forums as his own personal blog site, and has nothing to say except his opinions about things that never really happened in the first place.

I believe the poster was transferring historical actions onto this visit, which could be wrong, but probably a good place to start when trying to understand the motivations of NK. It is a very fine line N Korea would need to work on if they agree to offer access to the Internet, but it may open up a new governmental agency and create new government jobs. Possibly they are looking at the Chinese model, but I believe they would need to be stricter with control without structural changes to their governmental approach. Maybe the new leader is looking to become a bit more open, which would be encouraging...

Are you kidding me?

"North Korean authorities are using the CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt's visit to the rogue state as a propaganda"

It's called using anything as propaganda. It's typical North Korean response. if you don't understand why I said that, then you don't understand North Korea. They use everything and anything they can for propaganda. Even scoring a goal in the Olympics or World Cup in soccer, even if they lose by 8 goals, they use as propaganda.

I cannot find a legitimate news source that has reported any position at all quoting any "North Korean authorities" on this visit. Please cite one if you can find one. The Google CEO did not just arrive in Pyongyang on a bus. He was issued a visa, by North Korea's government, after exhaustive inquiry into his purpose for coming to the country. North Korea knew exactly who was coming and what he hoped to accomplish with his state-sanctioned visit. Is the Kim government now issuing blank visas to propagandists to come into NK and disseminate their views?

The Google CEO and heads of hundreds of other companies travel all over the world, all the time. Their visits are never reported in the US news media, but this one WAS. Now, who is using it for propaganda? Please tell me the USA does not use Olympic successes as propaganda. Lord Jesus.

Do not assume that everything (rather, ANYthing) the OP says represents any reality. He presents everything in a unique font, to make it look like a copy/paste of some authoritative report, but he is just making it all up himself and lying in every thread he starts, and never submits any documentation in support of his shrill slanted blog.

I was citing the OP. In any case, look up any article. They all talk about how they use it as propaganda.

What is it about Americans, that all they can think about is who everybody hates. Not all people are fixated on hatred and build their entire lives around who hates who. What do you want them to do, re-invent the wheel and fire, so they don't copy ours?

Americans hated the Nazis and copied their freeway system. Hated the Soviets and copied their space program. Hated the British, and copied their legal system.
