Coreea de Nord 2013: detasare si manusi de matase

Desi co-beneficiara, alaturi de Siria si Iran, a brandului "Axa Raului", Coreea de Nord nu figureaza printre tintele comentatorilor neoconservatori americani, specializati in notiuni cum ar fi "bombardare", "invazie", "regime change", "nation building". Manifestele americane de agresiune proclama sistematic atacarea Iranului, nu si a Coreeii nordice.

Spre a-si justifica apelurile agresive fata de Iran, belico-propaganda neoconservatoare vorbeste, in general, despre reactiile "irationale" ale "islamofascistilor" pentru cazul in care ar ajunge sa dispuna de o valiza cu coduri nucleare. 

In schimb, ii lasa rece dinastia liderilor al caror nume incepe cu "Kim", dar care par mult mai reflexogeni si imprevizibili, in materie de reactii militare, daca e sa ne luam numai dupa apucaturile din aceste zile ale Phenian-ului. (Apropo, din lexicul neoconist lipseste, deocamdata, un concept sexy pentru imaginea nord-coreeanului fascist). Apoi, o comparatie Iran - Coreea de Nord, in termeni de capacitate militara, o pune pe a doua intr-un avantaj uman si material clar, precum si in postura unei amenintari - conventionale si nucleare - mult mai insemnate pentru interesele geostratrgice ale SUA.

Ma surprind, de asemenea, manusile de matase purtate de un oficial american (citat de CNN sub anonimat) atunci cand zice despre un posibil test balistic nord-coreean: "We hope they issue a notification but at this point we don't expect it. We are working on the assumption they won't, " the official said. He said the launch could be "imminent" but also cautioned the United States "simply doesn't know." Asta la promotorii unei retorici care, atunci cand aud un iranian pronuntand cuvantul "uraniu", sunt gata sa treaca la DEFCON 1.

In fine, daca Iranul e interesant pentru America (nu pe fata, ci evident ipocrit), in primul rand, din cauza resurselor gigantice de petrol si gaze, lumea traieste cu senzatia ca acesta reprezinta un capitol la care nord-coreenii sunt neatragatori. Insa unii au o cu totul alta parere:

"In fact, North Korea is sitting on the goldmine. The northern side of the Korean peninsula is well known for its rocky terrain with 85% of the country composed of mountains. It hosts sizeable deposits of more than 200 different minerals, of which deposits of coal, iron ore, magnesite, gold ore, zinc ore, copper ore, limestone, molybdenum, and graphite are the largest and have the potential for the development of large-scale mines. After China, North Korea's magnesite reserves are the second largest in the world, and its tungsten deposits are almost the sixth-largest in the world. Still the value of all these resources pales in comparison to prospects which promise the exploration and export of rare earth metals. 

Rare earth metals are a group of 17 elements which are found in the earth's crust. They are essential in the manufacture of high-tech products and in green technologies, such as wind turbines, solar panels or hybrid cars. Known as "the vitamins of high-tech industries," REMs are minerals necessary for making everything that we use on a daily basis, like smartphones, LCDs, and notebook computers. Some Rare earth metals, such as cerium and neodymium, are crucial elements in semiconductors, cars, computers and other advanced technological areas. Other types of REMs can be used to build tanks and airplanes, missiles and lasers.

South Korea estimates the total value of the North's mineral deposits at more than $6 trillion USD."

Si, atunci, de ce toata aceasta timiditate in raport cu dinastia Kim versus ferocitatea cu care retorica Statelor Unite loveste in Iran?
