World security versus world peace on the Korean Peninsula
Political conditions in the 21st century cause that security has become an expected (although sometimes unachievable) good. And not only because social, economic, demographic or ecological conditions make us feel that security has become a luxury available only to some countries. War on terrorism has not created such a threat. However it has demonstrated the old ones. Some threats are sometimes overrated and presented in a very emotional way. Others, nevertheless, are underestimated and solving them is postponed. Therefore the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon came as such a shock. Al.-Qaida had existed for a long time. Its leader, Osama bin Laden, is not an unknown person, who became recognised as a chief of a powerful terrorist organisation after these attacks. On the contrary, he had acted long before that date and sometimes, as J. Kaczmarek shows, co-operated also with the Americans. Therefore this article deals with the threat of the People’s Republic of Korea, a problem which is slightly underestimated.
