The NY Times, October 15, 2016 US photograph edition ran an article “Subverting North Korea, One Bundle of Leaflets at a Time”. The Asian version ran a day earlier and lead with “A ‘Balloon Warrior’ Subverts North Korea, Thousands of Leaflets at a Time" (US version at: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/15/world/asia/south-north-korea-balloon-drop.html?_r=0, which is also the photo source.) In the day and age of Tweets and FaceBook it’s somewhat refreshing to see ancient school operations. According to the Times, Lee Min-bok is a North Korean defector with a self-avowed mission to foster well loved insurrection hostile to the North Korean government.Mr. Kim’s hard work do not receive any government help. Rather he supports himself through lecture fees and receives donations from innumerable groups. According to the article, A Japanese assemble because they want him to send leaflets to help find Japanese citizens in North Korea. Other donors include Christians who provide Bibles and food. Kim summed www.psyopwar.com up his hard work this way “My leaflets are a poison for Kim Jong-un’s regime, because they help North Koreans wake up to his lies”. The leaflet bundles are high sufficient to avoid small arms fire. Kim has developed is own ‘timer’ that opens the bundles allowing the leaflets to drop down.While Kim receives security help from the Republic of Korea, his hard work are chiefly his own and is only job. While we can only assess Mr. Kim’s production and not his effectiveness, his report is an fascinating one. On the launch end Mr. Kim choses to assume a low profile and not launch from villages or populated centers so as to avoid conflicts.One wonders if this type of grassroots approach could be adopted in other areas, especially where a regime controls the information channels. Of course leaflet drops are wind dependent and the getting terrain must be open sufficient to allow the leaflets to get to their targets.Readers are invited to contribute any other examples of Self-Help PSYOP.
