East versus west

Today is United Nations Peace Day. Three videos after the Read More describe the range of attitudes towards conflict in the world today. The first is from North Korea. The second is from a quiet town in Britain, with a concluding message from Gordon Brown. The last is a snippet from the movie Crimson Tide. To what extent are these world views based on reality? And to what extent on fantasy? Which of the world views, or combinations thereof, actually keep the world safe? Open thread.
