North Korea has been in the news lately for possibly orchestrating an unprecedented hacking of Sony. They claim they didn’t do it but are happy someone did as they are upset about the new film “The Interview” that (justifiably) mocks the country’s government.
I wouldn’t be surprised if North Korea did orchestrate the hack considering their history of various hostilities to South Korea, Japan, and the West.
Here’s evidence of such behaviour in postcard form:
The image is of a tunnel North Korea built in the 1970s for an invasion of South Korea. It’s called the Third Tunnel of Aggression (as there are many other tunnels. We got this postcard while visiting Korea’s demilitarized zone.
Here’s the back with details:
“The 3rd Tunned was discovered by our army on June 10, 1978. THe tunnel measures 1,635m long, extending 435m to the north and 1,200m to the north. Located in Dorasanri, Gunnae-myeon, Paju City, this Unification and National Security tourist site of Paju City attracts approximately 220,000-250,000 domestic and foreign visitors annually.”
“Hello from Korea. We are winding up our trip with 4 days in Seoul. This city is much like home – chilly with lots of McDonald’s and Pizza Huts. We love it here! This postcard is of a tunnel the North Koreans built into South Korea to invade Seoul. We went way down into the tunnel – it was fascinating. We also got to look over the fence into North Korea. Kind of scary.”
I’m not sure if by posting this I’ll draw the ire of North Korea. So if this blog (or me) disappears for awhile you know who is to blame.
