North Koreans are known for their merciless mind games. From tactics such as encrypted greeting messages to playing pre-recorded patriotic messages and music, the North Korean military seems like the mastermind behind all sorts of psychic tricks. However, not so long ago the Americans beat them the old fashioned way by playing them at their own game.
Once upon a time North Korean army troops attended a United Nations meeting. Unfortunately, either their intentions were less than honorable or they were paranoid, since all of them were hiding AK-47 riffles underneath their jackets and heavy clothing. Their actions were seen as armistice violation. Nevertheless, the Americans decided not to confront them directly, even though they were aware of the guns. In order to make them sweat – literally – the Americans decided to heat up the conference room to an uncomfortable level.
In this way they made the North Koreans sweat like pigs, uneasy and uncomfortable underneath their layers of clothing as they weren’t willing to remove it and prove they were violating the armistice with the weapons.
