turn it on now, if your in the UK, its pretty amazing. Touch lit rally in their capital, across the population is forced to do it but its a really amazing site to see. Apparently its an "anti-imperialism" celebration.

reminds me of the Nazi's...which is worrying

that's good

I tried watching this on fox news but the presenters were trying to be smartasses by making crude comments every 2 minutes...so I switched to sky news

It reminds of the Nazi convention. It really does.

Very eery, a Sky News newsreader just said he hoped they did'nt have a big suprise lined up as the end of ceremony finale!


Sure hope not with all the recent activity.

Well that gave me my dose of heebie jeebies for the day. The huge hammer monument looming out of the dark and all those thousands of obedient citizens... Did anybody see an audience? I didn't, and I think that was the creepiest part..

Also, did you notice somebody dropped their torch and may have even set themselves on fire? At around 3:25 in the video, you only see it for a second and then they switch to a different view, but you can see a torch drop in the second row and it gets very bright on the ground like legs burning. Then there's a long view from the front and you can see several spots burning at leg height in the crowd, but nobody breaking ranks.

The darkness was the creepy part of it.

the only light were the people, but yet, i still find it really beautiful

THAT is what this reminds me of...pseudonazi rallies. This clip is from a game called Killzone, but damn...the similarities are uncanny. Three pillars, waves of light in the crowd, regimented citizens...

It was on the BBC news as well, I felt unease at how they kept inferring that there were people starving in North Korea. Yes, I know that it's true, but does it really need repeating?

Ever since the Falklands I am wary of any sort of focus on the media against another country, as truths soon turn to half-truths. I am sure that we are not going to go into conflict with North Korea (we don't have the resources for one thing, plus thaey have nukes now), but these sorts of things designed to colour foreign relations still make me wary.

I remember, when the war was almost a given, an article in the News of the World saying that two-thirds of Argentineans had anal sex with their wives and were thus latent homosexuals, therefore they were evil - it seems ridiculous now.

The people who took part in the rally, do not get pay and some (not all) get a free meal.

everything that looks beautiful, tends to have a tragic face to it

Whilst on the topic, they tend to have an annual celebration called the Mass Games, which is similar, but smaller (maybe you've seen images of the large panels in the background that are all being held up and changed by people on cue?) There was an excellent documentary on it, which was a rare insight into North Korea on Channel 4 a few years ago.

I'll see what I can dig up.

As many have said before, me the first words that popped to mind were 'Nazis'.

If this is anything to go by, I think we may have a problem on our hands, thousands of people willing to do what they are told without questioning it.

thats why no one wants to use military force on North Korea

millions of people are brainwashed and will do anything that Kim Jong Il tells them.

The pictures of NK that I've seen are one part Albert Speers wet dream, one part filthy hovels.

Look at how quasi-military everything looks. Damn. If we get into a war, we'd better bomb the place so hard not even the air stands upright.
