Nothin' Wrong With Orangchon

If North Korea can build power plants the "Three Gourges" way, Good on 'em...

Pyongyang, September 2, 2005 (KCNA) -- The construction of the Orangchon Power Station is progressing apace in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The building of the dam has been carried out at more than 90 percent and the aqueduct tunnel all excavated. The project for expanding the tunnel has been done at nearly 70 percent.

So why does it's propaganda always deal with the nuclear issue?

Pyongyang, September 2, 2005 (KCNA) -- DPRK Foreign Minister Paek Nam Sun sent a congratulatory message to Manuchehr Mottaki upon his appointment as foreign minister of Iran. Expressing the belief that the good friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries would further expand in various fields, the message sincerely wished him good health and success in his new job.

Plain English Guard

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea will take over defense command against possible North Korean artillery attack from the U.S. military, a South Korean defense official said on Saturday...How WILL the KCNA spin this?

"The two sides agreed to go ahead with the transfer during the Ulchi Focus exercises and it will formally take place on October 1," the South Korean defense ministry official said by telephone... Without America, I feel the "scope" of the KCNA's mandate will be rendered ineffective.

North and South Korea are technically at war under a truce that ended the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea is the world's most heavily militarised country relative to population.
North Korea has declared it possesses nuclear weapons for what it calls self-defense against U.S. plans to attack it...

How long does the KCNA have to rant about the eminent Second Korean War before it ACTUALLY happens?

Its official mouthpiece, the KCNA news agency, said on Friday that the Ulchi Focus Lens drills were "totally aimed to mount a preemptive nuclear attack
on the DPRK".

Worthless Telegram

SEOUL (Reuters) Sept 3, 2005 -
North Korea's Red Cross Society sent a message of sympathy to the hurricane-ravaged United States on Saturday, in a rare gesture toward a country the communist state has called "evil" led by a "political imbecile." Like "clockwork".

..."In the message, the society expressed sympathy with the USA Red Cross in connection with the great disaster suffered by those areas due to the hurricane," the North's official KCNA news agency said.
Gee thanks. How about a DONATION of aid, instead of constant acceptance OF it...

"(The Red Cross Society) hoped that they would recover from it and the living of the inhabitants in the afflicted areas return to normal as early as possible," KCNA said referring to the message. There was no mention of an offer of recovery assistance.
I don't really think that last sentence needed to be typed out.

The same North Korean mouthpiece agency criticized the United States on Saturday for naming a special envoy last month to address the human rights condition in the North.
Yes, the same one.

"The U.S. is the world's worst human rights abuser," KCNA said, adding that Washington was engaged in "terrorism to spread the American style 'freedom and democracy' under the pretext of combating terrorism."
Pyongyang, September 2, 2005 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il was presented with a gift by the visiting delegation of the U.S. Congress. It was conveyed to Kim Yong Dae, vice-president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly, today by James Leach, chairman of the Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs of the International Relations Committee of the House of Representatives, who is heading the delegation.

Poverty Gap

Chosun: Sept 2, 2005

North Korea’s gap you MUST be talking about Kim Jong Il
between rich and poor has been growing since the Stalinist country started economic reforms in 2002. While some have managed to better themselves to form something of a nouveau riche class, more than 70 percent are now getting only about half the needed calorie intake from state-run food distribution centers, the Financial Times reported Friday...

So now a few have some cash?

...The FT said the country as a whole is experiencing 130 percent inflation but poverty is no longer shared equally.

A FEW are no longer starving.

Return Of The Darkness

By Nopporn Wong-Anan September 2, 2005

"Our country faces many problems, but the most serious one is we don't have enough energy," said the official, who spoke only Korean and French and identified himself as "Mr. Choi."...

...But at his dinner with visiting journalists, Mr. Choi said North Korea lacked the infrastructure and fuel to generate enough electricity -- hence its need for nuclear power\weapons plants...

...Echoing top Pyongyang officials, Mr. Choi insisted that North Korea needed a nuclear deterrent to ensure its peaceful development and self-defense.
"Look what happened to Afghanistan and Iraq. If we did not have nuclear weapons to defend ourselves, we would end up like them," he said referring to the US-led invasions.

Fuckin' thank you Nopporn.

April 24... 27, 2004

As I listen, watch, and read the massive amounts of media disseminated around the world from the Gulf coast... I need to point out a dark, deep, and evil dissimilitude.
The Eye's say.
KCNA "Report" on Explosion at Ryongchon Railway Station
Pyongyang, April 24, 2004 (KCNA) -- The KCNA on April 24 released the following report as regards an explosion at Ryongchon Railway Station in North Phyongan Province, on April 22: An explosion occurred at Ryongchon Railway Station in North Phyongan Province on April 22 due to the electrical contact caused by carelessness during the shunting of wagons loaded with ammonium nitrate fertilizer and tank wagons. The investigation conducted so far shows that the damage is very serious. It is going on. The DPRK government is doing its utmost to recover from the damage caused by the accident as early as possible and help the living of the people in the afflicted area return to normal. It appreciates the willingness expressed by the governments of various countries and international bodies and organizations to render humanitarian assistance to the DPRK.

April 25, 2004 was a "blackout" date...

S. Korean Red Cross Delegation Leaves
Pyongyang, April 24, 2004 (KCNA) -- The delegation of the south Korean Red Cross led by its President Ri Yun Gu left here today. It was seen off at the airport by Choe Song Ik, permanent member of the Central Committee of the Red Cross Society of the DPRK, and officials concerned.

Gift to Kim Jong Il from Vietnam
Pyongyang, April 27, 2004 (KCNA) Leader Kim Jong Il received a gift from the Directorate for Standards and Quality of Vietnam. The gift was conveyed to an official concerned today by Ngo Quy Viet, director general of the directorate who is leading the delegation of the directorate on a visit to the DPRK.

The Right Title

Chosun Sep.2,2005

The U.S. Committee for Human Rights in North Korea says South Korea must stop direct food aid to the North because it is going astray and hampering attempts by the international community to ensure aid goes to those who most need it...

I know this is not a nice thing to see me advocate, but I will never ignore something that is RIGHT!

They said North Korea’s chronic food shortages are brought about by a system that bars direct approaches from the people and allows the regime to ignore their plight. Thus international aid can only ever be a stopgap to fundamental systemic change, they said.

Large Computer

September 2, 2005
SEOUL, South Korea(

North Korea's chief envoy for talks aimed at ending its nuclear weapons ambitions met visiting U.S. lawmakers Friday as the communist country criticized joint military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. To say the least.

Kim Kye Gwan was present at a meeting between North Korean officials and the U.S. delegation led by Rep. James Leach, R-Iowa, the Korean Central News Agency reported in a short dispatch, without providing details of the talks. HAHAHA! THIS IS NEWS?

Also Friday, an unnamed spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said the annual U.S.-South Korea military drills show "who is chiefly to blame for disturbing peace on the Korean Peninsula and escalating the tension and confrontation."
Who's responsible for the escalating shittyness of North Korea?

The Ulchi Focus Lens exercise, which is largely a computer-simulated war game, ended Friday after a 12-day run.

Re: History

Italian Organization on U.S. Defeat in Last Korean War How could this NOT be a weird read?

Pyongyang, September 1, 2005 (KCNA) -- The Group of Dialectical Diabolical Materialists of Italy published the September issue of its organ La Voce as a special issue. It said that it is disgraceful for the United States to have painted itself as a "liberator that brought democracy" while distorting the Korean war till now nobody "distorts" Italy's WWII history. In an article titled "July 27, 1953 in which the U.S. was defeated for the first time in history, hehehe Armistice Agreement was signed at Panmunjom" the special issue noted that the Korean war was a premeditated war ignited by the U.S. to realize its ambition to dominate Asia and the rest of the world after occupying south Korea under the pretext of "disarming" the Japanese troops when WAS the last Japanese military strike? after the liberation of Korea. The U.S. mobilized many latest weapons including biological and chemical weapons in the Korean war but suffered only setbacks in battles as it failed to judge the ideological and moral strength of the heroic Korean people, it said. They also "failed" at starting another Korean war, apparently. The Korean war clearly proved that the people struggling for the freedom and liberation of their country against colonialism, TYRANNY, OPPRESSION, COMMUNISM can never be brought to their knees, it stressed.

Good Strike?

The CBC has something to say about nuclear weapons.

Blue... JUST ONCE!

North Korea followed a similar two-track process in its nuclear program, which it overtly says aims to produce weapons. In 1994, it signed a deal with the United States freezing its plutonium program, but in 2003 it was discovered that North Korea was secretly building a uranium program. Nuclear weapons can be produced using either plutonium or highly enriched uranium as the explosive core. Either substance can be produced in the process of running a reactor.


Nuclear Silence!

The Eye has chimed in on recent events. I have to make this blog about something else now? Fuck that. Here is "Iron"y for everyone to "enjoy".


I have been waiting for a new picture for a month now. Unfortunately, here is a link to Global Security's

New Orleans imagery. The destructive power of Katrina is something ALMOST equivalent to a nuclear weapon.

New Orleans will rise.

How or when will North Korea stop the slow decay of it's country?

No Entitlement

U.S. "Human Rights" Offensive under Fire in S. Korea

Pyongyang, August 31, 2005 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Reunification Solidarity of south Korea reportedly issued a commentary on August 21 lashing at the U.S. appointment of an "envoy for the human rights issue of north Korea". The commentary charged that this appointment is a sort of attack as it goes against the spirit of the six-party talks. A "sort of" attack, huh? This must be the same kind of attack the U.S has been waging on the D.P.R.K all along. The action taken by the United States to bring forward again the "human rights issue" as part of its campaign against the north brought once again disappointment to the Koreans who desire an early settlement of the nuclear issue and touched off their anger, the commentary said, adding: The U.S., which is not entitled to talk about human rights, as opposed to North Koreans, who are not "entitled" to talk about ANYTHING is persisting in its smear campaign against the north. This cannot be construed otherwise than a sinister aim to vitiate the atmosphere of national cooperation and reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula at present and bring the trend of DPRK-U.S. dialogue back to the past confrontation. An act of blocking the reunification constitutes the worst violation of human rights according to the K.C.N.A on the Korean Peninsula and to cooperate in the efforts to achieve reunification and frustrate the moves for a war mean the fullest guarantee of human rights, the commentary said. It urged the U.S. to ponder over the ardent passion for reunification on the Korean Peninsula once again, withdraw the base and futile "human rights" offensive and the hostile policy toward the north and opt for warming its relations with the north at once. NO...

And weapons...?

MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti, Ivan Zakharchenko) - North Korea does not intend to give up its right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, North Korean Ambassador to Moscow Pak Ui Chun said in an interview with RIA Novosti Thursday. "This is a matter of principal, concerning our sovereign right to nuclear energy and weapons and the sovereignty of the state, which we cannot give up in any way," the ambassador said.
Pyongyang's nuclear
weapons right is not an issue "over which someone can give or refuse someone else permission," he said.
"The U.S. denial of our sovereign right
of weapons displays a logic that contradicts the official declaration of 'acknowledging the sovereignty of North Korea.'"...

...North Korea insists that in order to resolve the nuclear weapons issue of the Korean Peninsula, South Korea must invite inspectors, and "prove their declaration of the absence of nuclear weapons on South Korean territory and provide guarantees that they will not import them or produce them."
OK. This is a fair insistance. Will South Korea be getting special "aid" for NOT possesing nuclear weapons? When does Canada get food and oil from Russia, China and Japan for NOT having nuclear weapons?

How Gaddafi Helped His People

WASHINGTON, Aug 31 (Reuters) Sue Pleming - Iran, North Korea and Russia still are among the world's biggest violators of international arms control agreements but Libya is a poster child for reform, according to a U.S. State Department report on Tuesday.

Hmmm, Libya can clearly see living under a dictatorship does not have to involve isolation and a constant threat of invasion...

"It's fashionable to knock the compliance process in the wake of Iraq ... but we have gotten it right more than we have gotten it wrong," said one State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
If Iraq was wrong, North Korea must be Right(ed).

While wagging a finger at countries such as Iran and North Korea, the report praised Libya for its December 2003 decision to give up its weapons of mass destruction program.
"This gives us a model (for how countries can change)," said the senior State Department official.

The United States is close to resuming full diplomatic relations with Libya and the two countries are expected to exchange ambassadors in the coming months.

Pyongyang, August 31, 2005 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly, sent a message of greetings to Moammer el Gaddafi, leader of the Great September First Revolution of Libya, today. Warmly congratulating the leader, the leadership and the people of Libya on the 36th anniversary of the victory in the Great September First Revolution in Libya, the message wished the friendly Libyan people greater progress and prosperity.

Gaddafi, you are an asshole. You know what is Right for Libyans, regarding weapons of mass destruction, however.

Plutonium is the issue...

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Sept 1, BURT HERMAN - South Korea's top diplomat said Thursday that North Korea's professed desire for a peaceful nuclear program shouldn't become an issue that overshadows disarmament talks.
Right. It should be human rights abuses that dominate the talks.
Meanwhile, a leading North Korea expert said an official there told him the country was researching how to create lightly enriched uranium - which could be used to fuel a reactor for non-weapons use, as opposed to the highly enriched uranium deployed in atomic bombs...
Yea, it is known fact that North Korea has it's own supply of plutonium. Why would you want to enrich uranium? It is hard to do and expensive. Burning coal would be a much more efficient way for North Korea to produce energy.
...Harrison, director of the Asia Program at the Washington-based Center for International Policy, said comments last month by Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf that his country's former top nuclear scientist, A.Q. Khan, had passed nuclear technology and designs used to enrich uranium didn't prove American assertions of a highly enriched uranium program -No... Christ! It only "proves" the D.P.R.K's willingness to acquire and proliferate nuclear weapons technology.
which would require hundreds or thousands of centrifuges to be built with specialized parts not easily available. Saddam Hussein was able to acquire them.
``The assumption that they have tried to make or been able to make a weapons-grade uranium program in North Korea is very unfounded at this point,'' he said.
What about the "founded" assumption they have been able to, and HAVE made, weapons grade plutonium?

Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- Marwan Sudah, chairman of the Arab Solidarity Committee for Supporting the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front and the Struggle of the South Korean People, released a statement on Aug. 14 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Korea's liberation. He recalled that the U.S. imperialists have so far imposed unbearable sufferings and misfortunes on the south Korean people by converting south Korea into their colony and military base. Isn't America a colony? A fucking sweet one too There is no more urgent task for the south Korean patriotic people of all strata than to terminate the U.S. imperialist colonial rule, achieve national independence and reunify the country today on the threshold of the lapse of 60 years since the occupation of south Korea by the U.S. forces, he said. Yea? I could think of a few "tasks" more "urgent". Feeding your fucking starving citizens could be one. He earnestly called upon all the Koreans in the north, the south and overseas and the progressives worldwide to pool strength in forcing the U.S. troops to pull out of south Korea and daringly smashing the U.S. imperialists' moves to provoke a new war. The K.C.N.A are the only ones reporting this "fact". Daily.

Great Leader(s)?

Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission is that all, Monday sent a message of greetings with Kim Yong Nam wow, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, to Fidel Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, president of the Council of State and president of the Council of Ministers of Cuba, on the 45th anniversary of the opening of diplomatic ties between the two countries. Ya ever get the feeling North Koreans put a lot of stock in a title?

Availing ourselves of this opportunity, we sincerely wish you greater successes they will need it in your responsible not successful work for hastening socialist construction and promoting the well-being of the people, while frustrating the U.S. imperialists' moves to isolate and stifle Cuba. America is only frustrated Cuba is still communist. More so than Cubans anyway....

Capitalism Is A Right

Nkzone has moved, due to commie regulation. The quality has not diminished.

By Andrei Lankov
The slow-motion collapse of the Stalinist economy began in the late 1980s, and in a few years this slide developed into a free fall. By 1996, the old economy of coal mines, mammoth plants, and chimney smokes was dead, rations were not forthcoming, and many North Koreans had to resort to commerce to survive. The markets began to grow.

It is important to understand that an old lady selling vegetables at a stand can go under scrutiny, and even persecution for "resorting" to capitalism. Here is something that really makes you think about all of the manpower Kim Jong Il is famous for wasting.

Once again, the Kims have out-Stalined Stalin: even in the most paranoiac times of recent Russian history one could not imagine a KGB operative being posted to every single countryside market! The administration enforces law and order, makes sure that nothing improper or forbidden takes place, and also collects the market fee that is paid by every vendor.

Reminds me of the 100 million man hours used for a mass "game". The ladies/human-traffic-light in the streets of Pyongyang, directing NO traffic. This is the face of modern evil.

Ya wanna talk about waste? Think of all the money the average North Korean has to waste, due to the fact if he or she wants to buy something, he or she has to pay a "black market" price.

Blue As Hell

A shout out to me bro...
And a BIG shout out to the capitalist bastion that IS Forbes...

The date of this article is 3-3-03

That is why it is so futile to bleat every morning and evening--as most of television's chattering classes do (with a few notable and welcome exceptions)--that the Bush Administration must search for--and embrace--a diplomatic solution to the crisis with North Korea.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 846 days later. WHAT IN THE FUCK HAS CHANGED?!?!?!?!?

Diplomatic solutions require an exchange of promises. We have done that with both North Korea and Iraq, and we know it has not worked and will not work when the other side of the negotiating table is occupied by either of those countries.
So simple. So under-reported.

With great fanfare the Clinton Administration in 1994 proudly produced the Agreed Framework with North Korea. The U.S. agreed to arrange for Pyongyang to obtain two nuclear reactors. These reactors were supposedly "incapable" of producing plutonium--the first lie. With only a little technical effort, they could produce it. We were also to give the North free fuel oil. And the North's commitment? To give up its nuclear weapons program.
100%? Exact? Unmistaken? Hit the nail on the head? Fucking bang-on?

Yea, Jonny... next time ya got something like THIS to say... The comments are listed under every post for a Good reason.


If you can't laugh at North Korea, who the fuck can you laugh at? The Saudis can't TOUCH these guys... :)

JANET K. KEELER August 28, 2005
North Korea has agreed to open more of its corners to foreign tourists, as its cash-strapped government is realizing that tourism is one of the quickest ways to earn money.

I'd like to offer advice to the "government" of North Korea. First, "fire" Alejandro Cao de Benos, and hire someone from South Korea that knows what the fuck he is doing. Also, I would try to put a better "shine" on the whole... "Government is more frightening than any crime" thing ya got going on...

Hyundai Asan, the South Korean company that already runs tours to the North, will offer trips to Mount Paektu, regarded by Koreans as the birthplace of their nation.

I would also advise you stop making up fairy tales and passing them off as a national history...

Ok, I'll admit...the Ryugyong Hotel is some fuckin' cool architecture. You need a free society to have guests in it. How is the Saudi tourism industry doing these days?

Trust This

PYONGYANG (Reuters) - North Korea said it would be willing to dismantle its nuclear weapons programme and rejoin the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty if there was trust at six-party talks on that programme, visiting Thai Foreign Minister Kantathi Suphamongkhon told reporters on Sunday. Kantathi met his North Korean counterpart, Paek Nam-sun, in the North Korean capital on Saturday.

North Korea would not find itself in this situation if ANYBODY trusted Kim Jong Il. If there is a deal, it will be broken...As it always has in the past. It's Hard-Line time.

True Motives

In between stories highlighting the general insanity and pointlessness of the K.C.N.A... Lies intention, pure and true.
Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Friday in a signed article says that the joint slogans of the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea clarify the appearance of the new world that should be built in the 21st century and the target, orientation and ways of struggle of the world progressive people. What the humankind should build in the new century is an independent, new world, the article says, and goes on it ALWAYS goes on: The independent world means a world where the intrinsic demand of humankind is completely met and desire of each country and nation for independence and peace is realized...
Sounds like America to ME! Oh, and it goes on:
...One should never allow the old world structure of the 20th century full of contradictions to remain in the 21st century,are they talking about the 20th century DOMINATED by America? especially the unipolar world structure dominated by the U.S. imperialists to be established Yuuup. Tolerance of such structures will not be tolerated mean retrogression in building an independent new world and, furthermore, abandonment of the efforts to do so. Close unity of peoples of all the countries advocating independence is the best way and a fundamental guarantee for building an independent, new world. It is an important way of building this world to defend and advance the socialist cause while protecting peace and security from the imperialists' moves for aggression and war.
