North Korea: Is It News Or Propaganda?

This is an op-ed from my other blog…GSFP….I will re-blog them here until GSFP gets better known around the web…..thanx for the visits….chuq

Gulf South Free Press

It began when North Korea fired off its fist nuke and continued through the many missile tests that have been conducted.
