How the Outcome of the US Presidential Election will Affect the DPRK

During the race for becoming US president, many people already knew Hillary Clinton, while many saw Donald Trump as a wildcard. Even before June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he would be running for president, lots of strange rumours have since been spread in the mainstream media. On June 2, 2015, Reuters posted that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK) praised Donald Trump on a so called “propaganda website, where they claimed that he was a “a prescient presidential candidate” who can liberate Americans living under daily fear of nuclear attack by the North, and that Hillary Clinton was referred to as “thick-headed Hillary” over her proposal to apply the Iran model of wide sanctions to resolve the nuclear weapons issue on the Korean peninsula. This has uncritically been paraphrased by Wester media, such as the Guardian for example. Only problem is that it’s not true. In fact it was written by the China-based Korean scholar Han Yong Muk for the site DPRK Today, which is a Chinese-based news site that supports the DPRK, but is in fact not a site run by the DPRK. This fabrication is the root to the belief that the DPRK supported Donald Trump.

There’s no secret about what Hillary Clinton would have done. The US Democratic administration have told the public that they are fighting terrorists such as the Islamic State. Of course there have been many of us who have always known that so is not the case, but that the US have provided training and logistics to them by using their puppets in the Middle East. Now we know for a fact that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic administration have sponsored the Islamic State and other terrorists in the region. Read more

There is no secret though that US have a long history of sponsoring terrorism. Some of the most notorious terrorist groups that most likely wouldn’t have existed without their US sponsors are the Contras in Nicaragua and the Afghani Talibans and Al Qaeda. These terrorist groups have all been sponsored by both Democratic- and Republican administrations. So what can the DPRK really except of Donald Trump as president?

Ri Jong Ryul, deputy-director general of the Institute of International Studies in Pyongyang, explained to the CNN in an interview in April of this year that Donald Trump is both absurd and illogical, and is having double standards on the nuclear weapons policy in East Asia, where Donald Trump have said that he wanted to withdraw US troops from south Korea and Japan and let them develop their own nuclear weapons while at the same time forbid the DPRK from developing nuclear weapons. Double standards is something that all previous US administrations have had when it comes to the DPRK. Donald Trump can say that he want to talk with Marshal Kim Jong Un how much he want, but it would all be in favour of his imperialist overlords. When Libya abandoned their nuclear programme they were attacked by islamist terrorists backed by US as well as bombed by NATO countries. It is understandable that President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria welcomed Donald Trump as president. Syria is already ruined by US backed terrorists and Hillary’s email where she wrote that “The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad” says everything that she would for a fact not have been a favourable president. So for Bashar Al-Assad to welcome Trump as president, the candidate who haven’t threatened Syria is the only logical alternative of Clinton and Trump. Hillary Clinton expresses that she want to secure the security of the genocidal state at any cost. Read email

President Kim Il Sung meant that it doesn’t really matter who becomes the president in the US. It’s the imperialist system and the policy of aggression of the US, that matters. Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump won’t bring any difference in US policies. When Barrack Obama became president in the US, people thought that meant change. During the two terms he have served, the US have kept on bombing countries, just like the presidents before him. Institutionalised racism is still there and the police are getting away with killing unarmed black men and women. The US have been at war for 223 years out of a total of 240 since 1776, when the colonisers claimed the birth of the United States of America. The foundation and existence of the US is war. No matter who is the president, that individual will only be there to represent the interests of US imperialism.
