an other fact that should be on ones mind, think you bad enough to take a DPRK one on one think again[
The songun doctrine has created a belief system in which
the public must follow the military because the military is
always right. It is no longer the Korean Workers’ Party
that leads the way, neither is it the government that assumes
the role of leadership.
how many in our armed forces are trained to kill in less than 30 sec in hand to hand ?, they know how by age 10, pros by age 16 trained killers by age 18, DPRK is not Iraq nor Afghanistan DPRK has in their minds be waiting for the war to get hot for 60 years, they do not play Xbox nor surf the net, they train, train, and more train day and night and when their not training their teaching the next gen, to do the same kill, obey, teach.
Now the philosophy of songun is attempting to integrate
the three components of human existence, the body-mindspirit.
Here, as before, the notion of an ideal personhood is
being created, but this time with three elements: one becomes
ideally developed through the attainment of martial
art (body), education and training in the arts and sciences
(mind), and devotion to a sense of mission for life (spirit).
The curriculum for education, in both the military and civilian
sectors, is designed to promote all three.

I went to school with Kim Jong-Un in Switzerland in the 90's. Let's just say that he would have done a better job of running that country as a young teen than his father. Maybe he's changed for the worse since then, but based on my personal experience, I saw it as a positive when he replaced his father. Back then he was just a normal kid in an extraordinary circumstance.

I find this OP, and for that matter, North Korea, to be full of massive fail...
Supporting North Korea is like cheering Charles Manson, or creating a shrine to Ed Gein.

Just to quickly address the whining thing... the USA whined to the WTO because even though they had a agreement with Canada via NAFTA over softwood lumber, they wanted an even better deal for themselves. The WTO ruled in Canada's favour so the logical thing to do, in the mind of the USA, was to keep 5 BILLION in illegal tariffs. That money, even after a subsequent agreement between Canada and the US because the US refused to abide by either NAFTA or the WTO ruling, has yet to be returned to us. NK is certainly not alone where whining is concerned.
