The present subterfuge about North Korea is largely a ruse. North Korea is still part and parcel of the modern Anglo-American establishment game, having gained all their modern missile and nuclear capabilities from the West.

Donald Rumsfeld, a member of the board of ABB, helped North Korea gain the armaments they presently possess. The Guardian reads:
“Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, sat on the board of a company which three years ago sold two light water nuclear reactors to North Korea – a country he now regards as part of the “axis of evil” and which has been targeted for regime change by Washington because of its efforts to build nuclear weapons.
Mr Rumsfeld was a non-executive director of ABB, a European engineering giant based in Zurich, when it won a $200m (£125m) contract to provide the design and key components for the reactors. The current defence secretary sat on the board from 1990 to 2001, earning $190,000 a year. He left to join the Bush administration. The reactor deal was part of President Bill Clinton’s policy of persuading the North Korean regime to positively engage with the west.”
