|Prof Hazel Smith with south Korean puppet "Unification Minister|
The bourgeois media have hailed the course as increasing understanding of the DPRK . However Prof Smith slanders the socialist system of the DPRK and the single-hearted unity saying "its people are cynical about propaganda being used by the government." Clearly this course is a modern version of the old cold war academic institutions in the imperialists which carried out so-called studies of the socialist countries with the aim of actually undermining them. Such institutions were underwritten by Western governments and intelligence services . The hidden purpose of the course is to promote counter-revolution in the DPRK and break-up the socialist system.
Prof Hazel Smith is shown in the picture above with the south Korean puppet "Minister of Unification " . The south Korean "Unification Ministry " is notoriously anti DPRK and is in fact an 'anti unification ' ministry and a base for anti DPRK operations of the more extreme and die-hard elements in south Korea.
Prof Smith herself has written a number of very anti-DPRK books such as "Hungry for Peace " which slander the socialist system of the DPRK. She even on occasion she attacked the Korean Friendship Association.She was also awarded a medal by the US. As well a Professor at the University of Lancashire she is on the staff of the US Wilson Center and was on the Honorary Committee of US NGO along with George W Bush and former US bureaucrats . For many years Smith was on the staff of Cranfield University which specialises in "security and resilience "(readers may wish to draw their own conclusion as to what "security " and "resilence" means).
Prof Smith is apparently a former Labour councillor is probably paid about at least £61,000 (which is 16 times what an unemployed worker would get )excluding any expenses and benefits and the loyalties of her books . Another overpaid so-called "expert " on the DPRK earning easy money !
Prof Smith represents bourgeois academia's assault on the Democratic People Republic of Korea and the Juche Idea and the new course on the DPRK will serve US and British imperialism.
