Just as the Japan scholar Richard Minear termed Truman’s atomic attacks “exterminationist”, the great French writer and film-maker Chris Marker wrote after a visit to the North in 1957: “Extermination crossed this land.” It was an indelible experience still drilled into the heads of every North Korean.




アメリカはかつて北朝鮮を絨毯爆撃した。日本の原爆について全滅兵器と名付けた人がいるが、まさに、北朝鮮を全滅兵器が横断したのである、と。
