Some of the media such as the US "Washington Post " and the UK "Business Insider " have come out with the totally absurb and ridiculous story about a "military coup " People's Korea " etc. This is total nonsense . Such a thing can never happen in People's Korea !
For one thing , the biggest mastermind of coups in the world is the United States ! , which has instigated 100s of military coups in the world(see the website "Third World Traveller " or read the book "Rogue State " by William Blum for reference ) . There is an old joke "why are there no military coups in the US ? answer there is no US Embassy in Washington ! . Jokes aside , there is of course no US Embassy in Pyongyang , so no CIA base from which to plot a coup in the DPRK !
Moreover in People's Korea society is based on the unity of the people , party , army and leader . The army in the DPRK is an army of the party , its weapons are levelled in the direction set by the Workers' Party . Go to the DPRK and watch a military parade and you will see not only the national flag of the DPRK and the Supreme Commander's flag but also the red flag of the Workers' Party of Korea .
The DPRK is a most stable and harmonious society without social conflict or class contradictions.The DPRK is one of the most stable countries on earth, in fact probably the most stable country in the world . In the DPRK there is no unemployment ,there are no spending cuts and taxation was abolished in 1974 .
The DPRK is based on the Juche Idea , the philosophical principle of which is that man is the master .Thus because of the socialist ownership of the means of production which is both underpinned and enhanced by the Juche Idea , people in the DPRK have a high sense of ‘taking ownership’ of ‘stakeholding’ which does not exist in any capitalist country. Moreover politics in the DPRK are based on benevolence and trust ,the supreme principle of the party and the state is to improve living standard.
There is nothing inside the DPRK that can produce a sramble for power amongst army officers,
It is a very silly day dream of the US imperialists to think of a "coup " in the DPRK . However the possiblity of a coup by neo-cons and the deep state against Trump if he signs a deal with the DPRK is very real indeed as is a coup by ultra rightists ,backed by the US in south Korea against the apparently "liberal " government of Moon Jae In!
The enemies of the DPRK need to stop daydreaming !
