North Korea’s Unholy War Dr. Michael L. Ford 19 October 2006 My friend and partner is some areas of Christian ministry, C.W. Boling, has encouraged me to write some comments about the situation in North Korea in light of current events. I had not intended to do so at this time because I have been planning a different article highlighting the anti-Christian attitude of the North Korean internal policies. But in responding to his encouragement I put in some more time in thought and study and began to realize that the whole business with North Korea is part of a composite whole picture. A lot of what the press and politicians do with the North Korea story is very irritating. They have reported that the little pervert dictator of North Korea has threatened war over the United Nations sanctions. Two things about his threats are unclear. The first thing is who is he threatening war against this time? And, the second is what about his threats are more realistic than the threats he has made in the past? North Korea has been threatening renewed war with someone ever since the Korean War ended. In 2003, officially atheist North Korea was calling for holy war against the United States. The whole nuclear thing has been in development in North Korea since the 1990’s. It did begin when they took inspection seals off reactors three years ago. And, they are surely not interested in getting electricity to their nation. Satellite pictures of Korea, taken at night, plainly delineate the boundaries between North and South Korea based on who has electric lights to burn and who does not. Electricity allows for communications that let people know about the rest of the world and people like Kin Jong Il can only stay in charge in a closed system. A nation whose leader cares nothing for his own people should be considered doubly dangerous because if he cares not for his own what would he be capable of against others? And, the deluded dictator did not miss a meal while millions of his countrymen starved in such numbers that the Black Plague by comparison started looking like a flu epidemic. Is Kim Jong Il capable of unholy war? He is at war already!
