In stereotype, North Korea has always been an underdeveloped country and their economy never seems to have developed.
At a time when our country is developing its economy on a large scale and whole society is popularizing electronic technology, it is difficult to find a place where transport mainly depends on bicycles, goods are limited only to local territory. , and currency is limited to only banknotes, but North Korea is such a place.
We even saw on Internet that North Koreans were still living in our country in 1980s and 1990s. Most of them wore black, white and gray work clothes and cycled to and from work as if they were traveling through time, North Korea is not as backward as we thought.There is a great contrast between true appearance and power of North Korea.
The real economy of North Korea is not very developed, and pace of life in North Korea is relatively slow. For ordinary people, it seems to be no different from China in 1990s. They are behind in economy, but they are relatively strong in military and also relatively confident.
Perhaps, from perspective of North Korean President, spending national funds on economic development is nothing more than enjoying some luxury and improving quality of life, but this should be replaced by sacrificing too much time for pleasure. .Not worth it, life, as long as it's comfortable.
But premise is that you must live to enjoy such a life, so although you are stingy with investment in economic development, you do not hesitate to invest in military. The goal is to tell others that although I don't wear Gorgeous clothes, you can't take me seriously in public.
Militarily, North Korea is almost completely armed, from people to weapons, and is developing comprehensively. North Korea has a small territory and a small population, but North Korea's military construction can be described as extremely advanced.
The number of North Korean troops has reached one million, and population of North Korea in 2022 will be just over 25 million, and military conscription rate has reached 4%.
In terms of weaponry and equipment, heavy weapons such as tanks, missiles, and armored personnel carriers are not a scarce resource. The production of missiles is routine for North Korean military.
Moreover, North Korea's foreign policy is different from our country's foreign policy. As long as a foreign country invades, no matter who it is, even United States will immediately retaliate, otherwise this case will not be completed.Why North Korea is still tough on US
US foreign policy is thrown aside at international level. With support of a major economic power, he wants to go see hype when someone has something to do, and even wants to tinker with it when there is nothing to do. The inviolability of borders and territories seems to be ignored by United States, for this reason many countries of world are deeply concerned about this.
However, faced with this small country in Southeast Asia, United States did not seem to be able to handle it smoothly. The United States sent its agents to North Korea to investigate path, as did other countries, brazenly obtaining other countries' secrets. countries.
I thought that North Korea, a small country, would have to put up with it, but North Korean army was not used to him, caught him and brutally "beat" him, and he became world famous.
Why can North Korea be so stubborn in front of world's superpower, US? The reason, in fact, is mainly in two aspects: First, North Korea is bold and unintelligent, and they have hard power.
Before collapse of Soviet Union, Soviet Union, as a large socialist country, could still fight against US economic hegemony, but after collapse of Soviet Union, everyone seems to be deliberately avoiding US and avoiding its edge.
But North Korea doesn't think so. North Korea has not given up on invading a large country because of its powerful all-encompassing national power. Looks like she just wants to try head to head.
Perhaps because of North Korea's attitude to economic management, the United States, a major economic power, is losing out to North Korea, and so-called economic control may not be effective.
Second, North Korea's geographic location is relatively advantageous, mainly because its neighbors are relatively harsh. One of them is Russia, which at international level enjoys title of "warring nation". As a major country in world, Russia's international status cannot be underestimated. Diplomacy between North Korea and Russia is also very close.
The other is China. The Korean War between China and United States may have cast a shadow over United States. Now that my country's economy is booming, it may inadvertently tend to stand shoulder to shoulder. with United States.
At that time, our country's national strength had not yet reached level it is today. In order to protect political structure and territory of our country, we could still send troops to attack United States, let alone now.
Relying on its superior military prowess and innate geography, North Korea, even as an inconspicuous small country in East Asia, can still show exceptional resilience even in face of such an advanced and dominant United States. North Korea has done many things that shock even outsiders, so what did they do?North Korea has done these shocking things
Diplomatic relations between countries in world are now relatively delicate. If a country wants to develop, it should not be closed to enjoyment. For example, Qing Dynasty closed country in exchange for an indelible history of humiliation. Once it gets stronger, it will become "fatty meat" divided by different countries.
Because North Korea has a hard power, although its foreign economic diplomacy is not developed, it cannot be ignored at international level. It is well known that South Korea and North Korea do not deal with each other. It seems that for Chinese, South Korea is more developed than North Korea, mainly because entertainment industry in South Korea is more developed, so Koreans are more active in vision of Chinese .
But North Korea is really as poor and backward as it is portrayed on internet. In fact, it is not. South Korea suffered a lot in front of North Korea.
When South Korea hosted Olympic Games, South Korea was naturally very wary of such an international event. During preparation period, President of South Korea also actively developed diplomacy, that is, during his mission in Myanmar, amazing events took place. .
North Korea sent special agents to monitor how South Korea was always on a mission in Myanmar and wanted to take opportunity to assassinate South Korean president in Myanmar. This idea is pretty bold. The assassination of president of a country in territory of a third country will have a great impact on image of three countries.
But North Korea doesn't care: they planted explosives in special car in which President of South Korea was traveling, trying to make noise. I did not want to accidentally kill leader of Myanmar, mainly because leader of Myanmar was at that time in car of President of South Korea, and President of South Korea did not get into car.
But bomb has already been planted. This action by North Korea led to severing of diplomatic relations with Myanmar, and relations with South Korea reached a dead end. North Korea also acts without thinking about consequences.end
Compared to many major countries in world, North Korea seems to be inconspicuous in terms of economy and diplomacy, which also attracts attention of many people who do not understand it as an underdeveloped or even poor country.
As everyone knows, the temper of this small country is extraordinary, as long as it is a country that offends her, whoever she is, she will not be soft when it comes to a fight.
