The New York Times has a very interesting article
about an American defector to N. Korea. A quote from the article: Mr. Dresnok says he is a true believer in the North Korean system. “I wouldn’t trade it for nuthin’,” he states emphatically.
Please read it to the end. It kind of gives some idea about why American shepherds gave their pledge of allegiance to Dr. Samuel Lee and UBF system. Although Dr. Joseph Schafer might have background different from that Mr. Dresnok, according to his testimony
, his loyalty to Dr. Sameuel Lee and UF system sounds a lot like Mr. Dresnok.
