In much the same way that the global power structure began to divvy itself in the beginning stages of World War II, there is a renewed cooperation emerging between today’s authoritarian leaders, and it has some concerned that a new worldwide conflict could be just over the horizon.
The latest evidence of this autocratic axis of evil comes to us from the Far East, where one of the world’s most despicable tyrants has now found himself with some powerful friends in Moscow.

There was no mistaking the sentiment.
“It said that we would continue to expand the comprehensive and constructive bilateral relations with common efforts, adding that this would entirely conform with the interests of the peoples of the two countries and contribute to strengthening the security and stability of the Korean peninsula and the whole of the Northeastern Asian region,” North Korean state media outlet KCNA wrote.
Putin sent the letter to commemorate the day of liberation, a national holiday that marks Korea’s liberation from Japan 77 years ago.
The move comes as Russia has also increased cooperation with the Islamic regime in Tehran, purchasing drones for use in their immoral and illegal invasion of Ukraine.
