South Korea drops democracy leaflets on the North

South Korea has recently been dropping leaflets regarding the democracy protests in the Arab world including Egypt.

Along with the leaflets they have also been dropping food, radios and medicines as part of their new psychological campaign against North Korea. South Korean parliament member, Song Young-sun, said that the campaign was aiming at bringing about change in the way people think in the North.

Along with this, food and medicines were also dropped in durable and lightweight baskets with balloons attached that were released as they were above certain target areas in their famine stricken neighbours. The items were dropped with a note by the South Korean military saying that the food parcels were from the South and the food is safe for human consumption.

North Korean analysts say that Pyongyang has too much control over the movement and communication of the people making a revolt near to impossible, unlike what the world has witnesses in places such as Egypt, Tunisia and more currently Libya.

South Korea has not budged on their campaign to initiate talks with the North after an attack by the North on a South Korean island in a disputed sea border. In the attack four people were killed, including civilians. The first attempts of initiating these talks failed in February of this year.
