How could the DORKs tell between interfered just crappy hardware that breaks?

They can’t.

Yeah, yeah. Nobody is intimidated by you, fatso.

Yeah, paper mouse

This coming on the very same day that the U.N. World Food Programme (the WFP) announced their “continued support” in providing approximately $248 million in continued food aid. Citing “persistent humanitarian challenges” faced by the authoritarian nation’s citizens. Along with “recurrent natural disasters that exacerbate vulnerabilities.” A certain irony at work here, considering that WFP officials have had almost no access whatsoever to the country since March 2021.

Think of all the food that the satellite, along with all those dozens of missiles they insist on polluting the oceans with on a regular basis, could have purchased. Staggering!

They probably can using sensors on the satellite and ground based telescopes. The same sensors sending images back to their operating center can also send back images of another nation's satellites. It is not as if this is a rare thing for one nation to mess with another nation's satellites. The USAF operates ground based telescopes used to track satellites that are supposedly able to take detailed images of satellites in space.

Use some ground-based or aircraft-based HPMs to knock out or degrade their new satellites. Let them figure out what happened in 30 yrs. There are unclassified papers on these types of weapons.

Technically, the US and NK have been at war since the 1950s, so nothing new there.

adding that U.S. sanctions violate international law.

No they don't. They are UN sanctions against North Korea who is launching rockets in violation off existing UN resolutions.

 "the United States, the world's biggest satellite possessor," should face the United Nations Security Council if sending satellites is considered a crime.

There are no UN resolutions prohibiting the US from posessing or launching rockets and satellites.So no, there is no crime there.

Observation satellites have massively improved crop growth, if they have the right types of sensors. Farmers in the USA use satellite imagery to optimize fields, irrigation, see crop disease and where a little more fertilizer would be good, all without walking the fields, https://gca.org/this-is-how-farmers-are-using-satellites-to-enhance-adaptation-2/

Alas, NK satellites are there to feed their internal paranoia. Same for nearly all their weapon programs. If NK leaders were fairly elected, the US would go away and leave them alone. Then the combined Korean people could decide if they want 2 countries or 1 without outside influence from the USA or China.
