"Possible instability in the country's leadership"???

Instability in Best Korea's leadership would be two steps up from what they have now.

The comment thread on that article is rather amusing.

Part of me wonders if they're doing this because they want more aid, or if they're just trying to look tough to appease their fracturing establishment.

If that is their fax, I wonder what the Army would think of me sending them faxes from a base line?

Feed that message on a sheet of paper into the fax machine, dial the NK machine, and quickly scotch tape to top to the bottom of the sheet in a continuous loop when it starts coming out of the reader.

For the lulz.

Faxing threats is so 1999. Which is also the last time anyone cared about Dennis Rodman.

I'm beginning to think Kim Jong-Un is on meth.  He's been acting crazy for a while now and apparently NK is into meth.

I can't imagine what it would be like to be Jong-Un.    You go to Europe as a kid and get a decent education and see that most people can have a pretty nice life and then you go back to your own country and become the supreme leader and see most people starving and suffering.  Why not do meth?  At the very least, I'd probably drink a lot if I were him.  Hell, I drink a lot anyway and the only thing I rule is what goes on in my house.

Step 1: Give each citizen of Seoul a free, fabulous weekend getaway to southern beaches.
Step 2: Mercilessly strike North Korea, and laugh as their artillery lands on an empty city.
Step 3: Pyongyang!

Apparently, he's a party animal and likes to drink  a lot. On his own personal island.

Somebody in another thread(and probably several I didn't read) compared him to Joffrey in Game of Thrones. That seems apt. Any chance he has a Praetorian Guard and a cousin with a limp?

From your link:

Imports of bottles of high-end alcohol alone cost $30 million

NK only has a population of about 25 million.  I have no idea what $30 million worth of alcohol looks like.  The NK elite has no idea what it's like to be poor and starving in NK and to be fair neither do I, but at least I have some empathy for them.

That figure of $30 million though - it makes you wonder what percentage of the population is "elite".  When you see pictures of their government meetings, there's a lot of people there.  I know booze can be expensive.  I don't like to buy the cheap stuff either, but at the same time I don't buy the most expensive stuff.

Let's say you spend $5000 a year on just the booze you drink yourself.  $30 million could cover 6.000 people at that price.

Well, it seems that Best/Worst Korea are not the only ones who used fax for important communication:

"The Moscow-Washington hotline is a system that allows direct communication between the leaders of the United States and Russia. This hotline was established in 1963 and links the Pentagon[1] with the Kremlin. Although in popular culture known as the "red telephone", the hotline was never a telephone line, and no red phones were used. The first implementation used teletype equipment, which was replaced by facsimile (fax) machines in 1988. Since 2008 the Moscow-Washington hotline is a secure computer link over which messages are exchanged by email."

A little old, but who knows maybe 1990's tech and 2011 phone numbers can create some magic.

Dear Worst Korea,

We hoped you enjoyed our fax giving you notice that we would give you no notice.  To show we mean business, we have copied the letter on to a 5 1/4 floppy drive.  We will get that to you as soon as we find a media mailer.

Sincerely,

Best Korea
