I hope that no-one else has posted this story or discussed this issue in this way. When I read this story I felt compelled to make an issue of it. North Korea is crumbling from within and all the efforts of its military regime to save itself will in the end be to no avail. I truly feel for the average person in NK as their lives seem truly miserable. Read the story for yourself. Then consider the implications of socialism run rampant or communism or authoritariansim gone made. Even if the material standards in NK were much better, life would still be miserable due to the great deal of control over people's lives there.

From his balcony, Kim Jong-il surveyed the city. It was a rare public appearance by the chubby dictator who rules the world's most isolated state, but he maintained a godlike silence as he gazed out imperiously at the surreal celebration below.

As soon as he came into view, a choreographed display of ecstasy erupted from the 20,000 soldiers and spectators standing in precisely ordered rows in Pyongyang's central square. Wave after wave of frenzied cheers and hurrahs rolled across the square. Thousands of balloons soared into the sky. A brass band played a triumphant martial song, while soldiers screamed, "Long life, long life!"

Just as the orchestrated hysteria reached its peak, the crowds marched across the square in military-style formation with bouquets of artificial flowers, pledging their loyalty and waving frantically to the man they call their Dear Leader. Many of the people were sobbing rapturously as they turned their faces up toward him. Thousands of soldiers goose-stepped across the square with machine guns in their hands.

reading this article from the beginning makes you wonder if Lil Kim is trying to be the new hitler?

Meanwhile, the vast majority of ordinary North Koreans live in hunger and misery. For most of the 23 million people in the world's last totalitarian state, the national holiday last week was little more than an added opportunity to scavenge. Millions of malnourished people here are dependent on "wild food." They mix it with ground wheat or corn husks in a gruel or soup, even though it causes painful digestive disorders.


Hmmm..


world's last totalitarian state..




I would think that 'Rense' would know better, as would you 'NEO' as a ATS member..


But no.. you take the Washingtons baite with the hook and the line..


And this is the smallest lie in the 'article'.

Maybe you should tip CNN about these new facts..

Im sure that they would pay you some $$$ as this does make great propaganda..


Reality is another thing, shyte is also..

And btw, what comes to the 'Hitler' people voted for him in legal vote.. and most loved him right to the end and even after..


(allthough the after part isnt a good thing as the world knows what they did to the Jews.. that was bad
, but i still dont have no 'love lost' when it comes to partisans executed / hanged.)

I'm certain that if real media could get into North Korea, you would hear about constant civil wars and a probable eventual revolution where the starving populace destroys their incredibly stupid and oppressive government.

Actually the 'real media' has been in NK, they filmed 'under cover' some footage, and the film won some award.. there is even music video made out of the film.. shows 'traffic police woman' directing traffic that doesnt really exist.. as only 50 cars, 20 bikes and 1000 people pass her in 24 hours of time.. in the 'multi million' capital 'Pjongyang' (or however it is writen.. i dont know..)


NK gov. really flamed when they realised that the film crew didnt film what they were supposed to film.. but there was nothing 'they' could do when they realised this.. as the crew was allready 'out of country'..

Fulcrum,

why do you contradict yourself?

Sure I am no fan of Rense, I have said so on numerous occasions in these many pages.

He supports Anarchy which is no solution to anything.
He has so solutions to any of the world's problems and all he does all day long is criticize.

But there is truth posted to the site and surprisingly there are stories coming from every angle. That is the only reason that I go there.

Now back to you,

your first post on this thread said the story was all lies. I doubt that or I would not have posted it.

Then your next post talks about the traffic cop directing non-existant traffic? Is that not an example of the madness that the story tries to present?

heelstone,

funny but as I read that article that is what kept going through my mind over and over. Why had the people not risen up and then it dawned on me, the people cannot fight a military state. The country will only fall when the military turns on the leadership. This will only happen when the average person in the military is no better off than the average citizen which may soon happen.

I don't get why THENEO had to paste the same thing 3 times in the post? Oh well, Kimmy is full of # and I hope his regime collapses soon, so no one has to go in there and shed blood over dumb things he's done.
