North and South Korea are, both legally and philosophically, in a state of war. While the guns may be silent, the conflict between the two countries has now become one of propaganda.

With the assistance of the Human Rights Foundation, North Korean defectors now in South Korea have been launching hydrogen-filled balloons across the 38th parallel — carrying both money and propaganda. In late 2014, a balloon launch sparked a brief exchange of gunfire between North and South Korean soldiers, and even more recently, Pyongyang has promised that hellfire will rain on South Korea if any copies of the controversial Hollywood comedy The Interview make it across the border.

VICE News traveled to Seoul to meet frontline soldiers in this information war — and to attend a clandestine launch of propaganda balloons into the Hermit Kingdom.

Interesting quandary for the activist - fight tyranny, or suffocate wildlife with plastic pollution 🧐😂

What about those rockets which you can aim? or drones that could make multiple trips. Charge. fly. drop. restart

I really don't think sending copies of a low-rent, highly stereotyped, tacky comedy by one of the most ignorant countries on Earth is going to reunite Korea anytime soon

Keep the press away you are the press

Maybe flying over a banner that says you're going to assassinate Kim is a bit extreme dont you think? Maybe focus on trying to persuade the people that they will are being brainwashed

If you think its good to live in North Korea go there. If you think Russia is the Socialist utopia go there, Nobody will stop you. You don't want to be American. Go back to the country of Origin.

The war hasn’t ended, the ceasefire was never ended. North Korea is still at war with America, Britain and South Korea.

This actually makes me kind of mad, imagine if Kim decided to do soemthing to the states & innocent people were killed because these people in this video pissed him off. I understand what they’re trying to do but how about focus on education the North Korean people about reality and not so much on pissing off kim

The War Against Boko Haram (Full Launching Balloons into North 1 day ago   29:53

Since 2009, the militant Islamist group known as Boko Haram has wreaked havoc in northern Nigeria. Instilling terror through bombings, abductions, and beheadings, Boko Haram is fighting to create an Islamic state in the most populous country in Africa.

VICE News traveled to Nigeria to embed with the country's army as it ramped up its fight against Boko Haram, whose rise has caused a state of emergency. As the only journalists on the front line in northern Nigeria, we witnessed the beginning of the largest military insurgency to date.
