Rumsfeld’s Dark Picture of North Korea

Posted November. 03, 2005 07:19,   


U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is pointing to Pyongyang at a night satellite picture of the Korean peninsula while reporting the results of his visits to Asian countries, including South Korea, China, and Mongolia, to the Ministry of National Defense on November 1. This picture shows the sharp contrast of a dark North Korea compared to a brightly lighted South Korea. Rumsfeld often uses this picture to show the difference between the systems of the two Koreas. He is known to keep this picture under the glass of his desk at his office.
