Eating that Pb and jelly sandwich that Kim Jong-un gave you might not have been such a good idea.

Well, Photoshop should make it easier to remove the "ill" Vice Marshall from all pictures ever taken with Kim Jong-un.

BronyMedic: dittybopper: Don't bother. I suspect that Alonjar is one of those "We don't know if true communism works, because it's never been tried" wankers. Either that or there was too much dialectic roughage in his kibbles this morning.

I'm just cracking up at the fact that he thinks the modern usage of the word communism should be in reference to the original, pre-industrialization, Pre-USSR/Eastern Bloc economic theories of Marx, and not to the inseparable system of Tolterian Government/Economic Direction which was developed by Trotsky/Stalin/Lenin/Mao et all during the first and second half of the 20th century.


I always like to point out, when someone correctly portrays "classic" communism as having never been tried on a national scale, that they've had numerous attempts over the last 130 or so years, at the cost of something like 150 million lives. This is like the person complaining that each of their six previous spouses was a complete asshole, which is why they divorced them.

BronyMedic: Alonjar: You do realize that communism is an economic system, not a form of government, right? Oh wait, youre like most americans... you know, retarded.

Well, aren't you the pedantric twit of the year.

"Communism", in this case, refers to the Leninist-Stalinist Communist form of Government, ALONG with the economic system of communal self-production that was exported from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, as well as the People's Republic of China, to the North Koreans in the 1950s.

Is that descriptive enough for you, skippy? Atleast I live in a country where I don't have to be Der Grammar Nazi when it comes to using the common accepted definition of a word which aptly describes the current economic and sociopolitical climate in a country.

Imagine that. A communist country having a violent replacement of the old guard.

Comrade Iosef Stalin would be proud.

I'm starting to wonder if Mini-Dear Leader is purging the old guard to make way for modernization.

Or perhaps there was a revolt against making runs to nearest South Korean McDonald's, and Chiefy was one of the loudest dissenters.

akula: People are indeed generally idiots, but I tend not to trust those that not only hold to that but also insist they're so much smarter than all those other 'tards out there. Sorry, we're all 'tards, just in different ways.


The smartest person is the one who realizes just how stupid he really is.

It always boils down to something along the lines of "my buddies and I weren't in charge, and we're so much better we can pull it off."

I've been to other nations. The people there are no smarter than Americans on average. The majority of people anywhere are retarded.

Action Seal: Power transitions like these happened when Kim Jong Il took over for his father. This isn't unexpected, and I doubt he'll be executed or punished, provided the reason for his removal was related to the transition of leadership and not for "failing the regime" as the finance minister did.


This. He probably is retiring in luxury, actually, since he didn't piss off the brass.

Un is just reminding the military brass who's really in charge. Daddy did the same thing when he took over.
