The North Korean Central News Agency reported on the 11th that Kim Jong-un personally presided over the national emergency quarantine meeting held the day before (10th) and declared victory in the emergency quarantine war.
However, the core of this national emergency quarantine meeting lies in the 『Debate of Kim Yeo-Jeong』, which threatened the ‘retaliatory response’ by pouring reckless remarks towards the Yun Seok-Yeol government. It can be said that it is like ‘anko’ of steamed bun.
Kim Jong-un talked about the past-present-future in principle, and Prime Minister Kim Duk-hoon and other debaters praised Kim Jong-un’s achievements and ordered him to deal with it with more thorough awareness. Naturally, it was also urged to achieve this year’s goals set by each sector without any setbacks.
However, Kim Yeo-jeong was completely different.
This is because the cause of the outbreak of COVID-19 is defined as the flyers sent by us to North Korea, and the future, that is, the change of direction of inter-Korean relations (including relations with the US) and blackmail (response in retaliation) is made explicit. The level of expression such as “extermination of the South Korean authorities” is also unprecedented.
① Defined as the first epicenter of COVID-19
“The national crisis that we experienced this time was obviously caused by the anti-republican confrontational madness of the enemies who tried to crush our country by igniting the global health crisis… . We are engrossed in how vicious the puppet conservative party is playing behind the ugly garbage that is worse than the beasts who are at the forefront of the sloppy game of spraying enemy water.”
② Threat of retaliation against South Korea
“We have completely eradicated the virus that the garbage had spread. We must take a strong response. Several countermeasures are already being considered, but the response must also be a very strong retaliatory response. If the enemy continues to do dangerous things that can introduce viruses into our republic, we will respond by eradicating not only the virus but also the things of the South Korean authorities.”
③ A confrontational call to arm the South Korean government
“Now is the time for us to have a different attitude toward the enemy and the South. There is no more terrifying act of self-destruction than that if you have an anachronistic idea that people who look at their allies before their own people, or the disgusting things in the south that have become a fan of the confrontation with their own people, are anachronistic… . The South Korean puppets are our unchanging main enemy, and the fundamental factor that determines the victory or defeat of the revolutionary struggle is class consciousness.
In conclusion, as I have emphasized throughout the past 3 rounds of theories (North Korea’s unusual behavior toward South Korea on June 27th/Recent North Korea’s unusual trend on July 11th/Early warning on July 25th): Strengthening internal solidarity by strengthening propaganda about the legitimacy of the North Korean socialist system and the superiority of the North Korean-style socialist system. It is evaluated as an intention to encourage reinforcement of the struggle for rehabilitation. ▲ In particular, it seems to be an intention to secure an edge in the battle for leadership between North and South Korea and North Korea in the future by restricting the scope of movement in flyers and human rights policies through a high-strength warning to the Yun Seok-yeol government.
This North Korean trend goes beyond the level of solidarity within the internal system, as well as important occasions such as the ROK-U.S. joint military exercise (Eulji Freedom Shield: UFS), which will be resumed for the first time in five years from August 22, and the US midterm elections in November, as well as at least It is part of a preliminary step towards taking a hard-line phase by the end of the year.
If you look at North Korea’s recent three meetings (such as the Standing Committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly) and four laws (such as the Space Development Act), as well as the statement against the ROK-U.S. joint military exercise announced yesterday by the South Korean Committee for the Implementation of the June 15 Joint Declaration, the future As North Korea heightens tensions on the Korean Peninsula through various strategic and tactical provocations, the situation utilizes arbitrary frames such as ‘invasion of fundamental interests’, ‘abolition of double standards against North Korea’, ‘autonomy’, ‘war versus peace’, and ‘national versus foreign power’. It is highly likely that manipulation and tactics of the unified front against South Korea (South-South conflict – Korea-U.S. relations) will be launched in earnest.
Therefore, we should not overlook the fact that Kim Yeo-jung referred to a ‘retaliatory attack on South Korea’. In particular, it is necessary to pay close attention to North Korea’s activities in the ‘Geumgangsan region’ in terms of early warning. Like the bombing of the Gaesong inter-Korean liaison office under the pretext of distributing North Korean flyers in June 2020, it is not easy for us to respond face-to-face due to our geographical location, even if we make a provocation such as the bombing of the Haegeumgang Hotel by creating a ‘North Korean flyer manipulation drama that damages North Korea, a clean country of corona’. Because. Moreover, North Korean society is a system in which Kim Jong-un’s orders must be implemented at any time.
“Mt. Geumgang was neglected for 10 years due to the wrong policy of the seniors who tried to make a profit by giving away tourist spots easily. land is scarce The policy of dependence of the seniors who tried to depend on others when their national power was weak was very wrong… . Let’s get rid of all the sloppy facilities in the South that make us feel bad just by looking at them.”
Considering such a keynote, it is also necessary to consider President Yoon Seok-yeol’s August 15 Liberation Day congratulatory speech or his speech at the UN General Assembly in September from a more strategic and long-term perspective. We should not prematurely express our hopes or will to progress in principled inter-Korean relations and denuclearization. This is because North Korea’s arithmetic and future scenarios are very clear. There is a high possibility that it will be ‘pouring water into the bottomed poison’.
Rather, the South Korean government should focus on ▲ improving its early warning and crisis management posture ▲ based on self-reliant national defense and strengthening ROK-U.S. cooperation ▲ restoring Korea-Japan relations, strategic dialogue with China, gathering public opinion, and leading the world’s values and economy. do. A bold response (which I call ‘aggressive strategic ignore’) is the answer.
