STRATEGIC FAILURES: THE 'ROAD NOT TAKEN' UNTO NORTH KOREA

Todd Brendan Fahey
Jan. 9, 2005

The most obvious/beneficial thing to do--and the thing that has not been done, tellingly, on the parts of either the U.S. or of the Republic of Korea--is to gain incredibly-detailed dossiers on each/every North Korean defector, and then to:

  1. utilize such information both in terms of training S. Korea/USKF military on the whereabouts of detainment and military installations, and

  2. to broadcast the information, with defectors who desire to "go public" toward their own horrors stories while in the hands of their captors (North Korea).

An all-out information campaign, revealing every ugly wart--directly from the mouths and experiences of North Korean defectors--and broadcast all-out via international and South Korean news outlets.

This would simultaneously help to disseminate information as to the locations of the gulags (and would assist USFK and potentially European militaries in a rescue effort and the expunging or capture/interrogation of DPRK military forces stationed at these "detainment camps"); all-the-while focusing the international media spotlight on the brutal, nonsensical Kim regime.

Oh: That and a sum-total embargo (no money or materials of any kind) toward North Korea by the U.S. and Japan and any other nation of which the U.S. is a heavy trading partner, and extreme economic sanctions/tarrifs upon South Korea by the U.S., should South Korea not react likewise.

I disagree with nearly every word that Mr. Lankov wrote in his International Herald Tribune piece.

The clamp needs to begin to tighten quickly and "progressively" upon the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Tyrants should not be coddled. Such would only serve as precedent and encouragement for a new era of the Beast.


Fahey has served as aide to Central Intelligence Agency agent Theodore L. "Ted" Humes, Division of Slavic Languages, and to the late-Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief Lt. General Daniel O. Graham; to then-Arizona Governor Evan Mecham (R-AZ), former Congressman John Conlan (R-AZ) and others. He is currently stationed in South Korea as a strategic writer.
