A must-read exploration of this volatile member of the “Axis of Evil.”
He stands five foot two in stocking feet. He adds two inches to his dumpy physique with elevated shoes. He has taken a country blessed with natural resources and an educated populace with a dedicated work ethic and reduced it to the level of the most abysmal third world pesthole. He has assassinated foreign statesmen, blown up civilian airlines loaded with innocent passengers, and sold weapons to terrorists around the world. He is diverting resources that his country cannot spare to accelerate a program whereby he can become a nuclear power capable of peddling weapons of mass destruction to terrorist groups in return for hard cash. He has surrounded himself with sycophants and toadies, lives in hedonistic luxury, and threatens his neighbors and the world with nuclear weapons. Who is this strange person? He is Kim Jong-Il, aberrant ruler of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea—or North Korea.
The more we are able to crack the façade of North Korea the more we learn of the dark, repugnant secrets that have been held close for decades. Peering through the cracks, we are able to discern an implacable hatred for America, South Korea, and other free nations. There were good and sufficient reasons for President George W. Bush to declare North Korea a charter member of the “Axis of Evil.” Americans heard him and wondered: Just what is going on over there that makes it such a threat? Separated At Birth addresses those concerns, explores North Korea’s twentieth-century history, its separation from South Korea, as well as its place in the East and its relation to China, the U.S., and Japan. Cucullu discusses our options, both military and diplomatic, and fills in some of the gaps in our knowledge so that we can be better prepared to deal with a nation easily described as a “rogue” one.
GORDON CUCULLU, a former Special Forces (Green Beret) lieutenant colonel, served twenty years of military service, mostly in East Asia, and was a staff officer at the Pentagon in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He was later a Fox News commentator after the September 11th attacks, and is now the on-camera consultant on the War in Iraq for WABC-TV in New York City. He is also a frequent guest on many talk radio programs across the country. He lives in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
