It is shocking that North Korea killed Lee Mo, an official from the South Korean Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, at sea and burned the body.
Regardless of how Lee entered the North Korean waters, he was unarmed, and North Korea fully secured Mr. Lee's recruits, so there was no reason to urgently kill him.
This sensitive response of the North Korean military seems to be related to the incident in July of North Korean defector Kim Mo, who fled to Kaesong through Ganghwa Island.
At that time, North Korea took an emergency saying that there was a possibility that North Korean defector Kim was infected with Corona 19, and Chairman Kim Jong-un called for an emergency expansion conference of the Political Bureau and came up with a special measure to block the entire city of Kaesong.
In addition, severe punishment was imposed on North Korean troops that neglected maritime borders.
At the time, Chosun Central News Agency Chairman Kim Jong-un said, "Strictly point out the poor front-line border working conditions of all units in the region. He said, "We have discussed how to take a measure."
● The trend of North Korea's life-savings is clearly revealed
As North Korean troops tasted hot only two months ago due to a vigilance failure, they must have been nervous about this external intruder.
Moreover, to prevent the influx of Corona 19, the overall vigilance was strengthened to the extent that an order was even issued to kill unauthorized accessors to the border between North Korea and China.
However, it is difficult to explain that a kill order was issued after securing a new recruit and completing an investigation into the overall situation over the course of 6 hours only with the measure of'strengthening vigilance amid increased tension'.
This is because if you think that human life is precious, you cannot do this.
Here, the trend of North Korea's life-guards is clearly revealed.
In North Korea, people of the so-called Baekdu lineage, the Kim Jong-un family, are invaluable, but others are Parisians who do not know when and how to die without a trial procedure.
Not only ordinary residents who have no money and no pockets, but also high-ranking officials who are the ranks of the party leaders are poor beings who can die without leaving a corpse in the gun in front of the purge's blade.
The fact that human rights are violated by confining so many people in political prison camps is not considered as important to human life.
In this case, the North Korean leadership is extremely anti-human and disrespectful that it is better to deal with it at sea than to risk the possibility of corona infection that may occur in the process of carrying Mr. Lee aboard a ship and dragging him to the investigation room. You may have thought.
● Completely ignoring South Korea
There is one more point to point out here.
Even under the premise of the North Korean regime's declining life, it is the fact that the people North Korea killed this time were not North Koreans, but South Koreans.
It is a reality that the two Koreas are constitutionalally one country, but they actually exist as two countries. It is an act.
No country does anything that harms the citizens of another country.
However, North Korea killed South Korean civilians in just six hours.
In the process, there were no attempts to question South Korean doctors.
The front line military units reported to the top, and when the decision to kill was reached from the top, South Korean civilians were killed without hesitation.
This is evidence that North Korea completely ignores South Korea.
● Is the government emphasizing strategic response really strategic?
The Blue House said, "Inter-Korean relations must be sustained and maintained," while revealing their willingness to respond to North Korea.
It may not be suitable for the immediate public sentiment, but it is read that the inter-Korean relations need to be viewed from a longer strategic perspective.
In fact, it is also necessary for the government to emphasize strategic response rather than being swayed by individual events.
However, it is necessary to think about whether the Korean government's response is truly strategic.
The reason that North Korea is ignoring South Korea so far is inevitably the result of our government's policy toward North Korea.
As you know, the Moon Jae-in administration's policy toward North Korea is that it seeks to improve inter-Korean relations in any case.
Well, let's think about it.
Whatever North Korea's reaction to South Korea, can it have any meaning as a card for North Korea to seek the improvement of inter-Korean relations and expect the favor of North Korea?
The card called South Korea, which can be used anytime with a hand out, no matter how disregarded, is not a variable to seriously consider from the North Korean perspective.
As for the current government, when considering the successive inter-Korean and US-North Korea summits in 2018, there may be an idea that a renaissance of dialogue should once again blossom within the remaining term.
It's not that you don't understand, but you have to abandon your desire to achieve something within the rest of your term.
A policy toward North Korea with an opponent of North Korea does not yield results just because it wants, and policy toward North Korea does not mean that any government can achieve results within the term of office.
It would be a good thing if dialogue took place and inter-Korean relations improved.
However, it cannot itself be an absolute proposition.
You should do it when conversations are possible, but if you only expect North Korea's favor because you are impatient to accomplish something within your term of office, North Korea's neglect will inevitably continue.
