Now, did you read the news today?  They say the danger has gone away.

There's not much love to go round in Best Korea.

Superman, where are you now?

Sometimes that Phil Collins, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about Phil Collins, he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he starts singing and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the crowd turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' the band'll come in and rip you to pieces. I'll never wear a Genesis tour shirt again, Chief

If Kim would just recognise gay marriage,then 90% of Farkers would be OK with N.Korea polices.

 Centralise planning, no school choice, compliant   press , autocratic ruling class (family) along with the agnostic bent.

spawn73: Noishkel: Mitch Mitchell: Am I the only person who has had enough of dumb ass communists?

No, you're not alone at all.  Not to be all McCarthy here but about the only people that really like them are communists themselves.  Full on cool-aid drinkers.

I happen to know a lot of Communists from when I were active in the no war against Iraq movement. And I can tell you that they don't like North Korea at all, nor acknowledge it as Communist.

Something like Cuba would be more to their taste I'd think.



Cuba is just as repressive, but draws a free pass with the elite Hollywood types.

So did he just "plan" on leaving ten years ago or did he actually leave 10 years ago? Because if he fled NK 10 years ago i have my doubts he has a good grasp of the last couple years of insider politics...

I have my doubts that Jong Un is a puppet. The common people rever him as a god like leader dont they? And the entire ligitamacy of the regime is based on the kim family... So while the elite might not support him they would be idiots to alpha roll a man their social stations rely on.  He's not calling all the shots but he likely has a decent amount of influence. 

And I have heard a few reasons as to why his uncle was executed... One of the best sources into NK (Kim Jong Il's sushi chef) suggested that the uncle was in charge of selecting underage whores for Jong Il and was skimming craploads from the regime and Jong Un wasn't keen on either of those things...

The reports of prison camps and public executions and torture all seem to come from the mid 90's or so -- now i know thats because getting quality info out of NK is like pulling alligator teeth, but I wonder what the current situation is for people on the ground... We feed ourselves just as much propaganda about how crappy NK is as they feed themselves about how bad the west is...  

Dont get me wrong -- NK is a hellhole and their government is disgusting -- But things can change. Theres always another side to the story you dont hear...

"Kim Jung Il had the OGD as his old boys' network," Jang told Amanpour. "Kim Jong-un may have friends in his Swiss school, but he has no one inside North Korea."

Sadly, Un isn't down with OGD.
