CNN's Victory

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea on Saturday called a recent CNN program depicting a public execution in the communist state a "sheer fabrication" and dismissed it as a ratings ploy by the U.S.-based broadcaster. North Korea takes any criticism of its internal affairs sensitively

and brands it a part of U.S. conspiracy to topple the government of its leader, Kim Jong-il.
It brands EVERYTHING it does not like as a "U.S conspiracy"...

CNN earlier this month broadcast a documentary, "Undercover in the Secret State," which among other images showed a grainy clip of what it called a public execution by firing squad of a man accused of helping a refugee cross into neighboring China. "The video tape is full of (sheer lies negating) the popular and class nature and the "democratic principle" of the DPRK's "laws" and tarnishing its image from A to Z," the North's official KCNA news agency said in a commentary.

Anyone that makes the K.C.N.A cry has my utmost respect. Congratulations to the CNN reporters and producers responsible for this story. Thanks to the ultra brave North Koreans who made it possible.

KCNA said people "who know about the DPRK even a bit claimed that the way of speaking and dressing of those who appeared on the screen and the background against which the scenes were shot were quite different from the reality in the DPRK, a clear proof of a sheer fabrication." from freekorea.blogspot

(CNN Student News) -- Set your VCR to record the CNN Presents Classroom Edition: Undercover in the Secret State when it airs commercial-free on Monday, November 28, 2005, from 4:00 -- 5:00 a.m. ET on CNN.

Right about the same time a D.P.R.K delegation will be in Montreal to lecture Canadians about the environment. Where the fuck is Ted Turner when ya need him?

"CNN is losing popularity as the days go by although it had high audience rating in the world in the past," KCNA said. "Much upset by this, CNN staged such poor farce to improve its image."

Here is some of the execution footage, aired in July in an excellent BBC report... via Gateway Pundit


I guess this report can not come as a surprise in any way. Nuclear weapon technology is a marketable export/import product for these two countries.

Teheran offers North Korea oil in exchange for rocket technology
Monsters and Critics Nov 26, 2005, Hamburg - Iran is seeking to strengthen its ties with North Korea by offering Pyongyang a comprehensive economic aid programme as part of co-operation between the two countries on rocket development, the weekly Spiegel reported Saturday.
Teheran wants to work together with North Korea on the development of nuclear-armed rockets, Spiegel reported citing western intelligence sources.
An Iranian envoy has already promised North Korea substantial supplies of free oil and natural gas that could help the country through the winter.

A flackback from 2002...

Perhaps THIS "report", fresh outta the K.C.N.A, will shed some "light" on the subject...

Functions Held in Czech Republic and Iran

Pyongyang, November 25, 2005 (KCNA) -- A film show was held at the Taekwon-do Club of the "Kyebaek Self-Defence Art " in the Czech Republic, a briefing on the situation on the Korean Peninsula and a film show were held by the Red Crescent Relief and Rescue Organization of Iran on Nov. 13 and 18 on the occasion of the 14th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's assumption of office as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army and the 88th birth anniversary of Anti-Japanese War Hero Kim Jong Suk. The participants of the film shows watched Korean films including the "Grand Gymnastic and Artistic Performance 'Arirang', 'Kim Il Sung Prize' Winner", "Old Home in Mt. Paektu Shining with Glory" and "Korea, Land of Morning Calm."
I don't understand what this is about, in any way...
A Taekwon-do film and a movie apparently and ominously titled "Kim Il Sung Prize Winner", was shown to members of Iran's Red Crescent Relief and Rescue??? Why? Am I missing something?
The participants of the above-said functions said that the DPRK has solved its strategic problems including the nuclear issue in its interests, steadfastly standing in confrontation with the U.S., adding that this is entirely thanks to the wise leadership of Kim Jong Il. Watching Kim Jong Il possessed of inexhaustible energy and brilliant wisdom, we were convinced of the rosy future of the DPRK, they stressed.
I never miss the fuckin' crazy-ass pro Kim Jong Il propaganda...

I feel sorry for those poor fuckers that had to sit through 5 different shitty North Korean movies. It's can't be suprising that Kim Jong Il needs to kidnap South Korean directors. Authentic D.P.R.K flicks need people forced by an oppressive government to sit through them. No wonder the were all "convinced" of the D.P.R.K's "rosy future"; It was either that or watch more...

UPDATE: Iran denies everything. Including having watched a movie called "Kim Il Sung Prize Winner"...

The Helpless Resistance

The Seoul Times
Saturday, November 26, 2005
By Thomas Omestad
And yet, the growing split between haves and have-nots has not generated any organized opposition, say visitors to the North. Informers and state security services see to that. Watching videotapes of South Korean TV soap operas has become popular but remains illegal. Police, according to several accounts, have taken to shutting off the power to apartment buildings at night to search for contraband videos; they go apartment-to-apartment, looking for VCR s with tapes trapped by the cutoff of electricity. The unlucky can expect prison time.

Does anybody give a shit about people going to jail for no reason?
Will this dictatorship laugh at the idea of freedom for decades more?
How can peace possibly be more important than stopping this oppression at all costs?

The Shifting Power

It is time to pay homage to the blogosphere. While people all over the world use the power of blogs to disseminate the world, a small number of people have decided to devote effort against tyranny. While the D.P.R.K sharpens it's Stalinist skills(shutting down power to collect VCR tapes, as one of many examples), a growing force is uniting against it. It will be impossible to stop, or even slow this force, as it is motivated by freedom.

Free people need to launch a just war against the government of North Korea. Now.

How To Save North Korea: Guns, Guns, and More Guns
Resa LaRu Kirkland on November 25, 2005

Now we have the most evil nation on earth—North Korea—that for the first time is showing signs of people who are not buying the communist lie anymore. The brutality of Stalin lives on there, and in spite of their runt of a leader’s fervent desire to suppress information about the real world, the peasants are finding out anyway, and they want it. They want their lives back, their freedoms, and their families. They know that in spite of the heavy propaganda that has been force fed to them, the world beyond their borders is far more desirable than the gulags within. They grow weary of forced three generation imprisonment, public executions, slave labor and torture, and a fat, vile little leader who lives in decadent opulence while the people starve. Pictures of “Great Leader” Kim Il Sung and his bastard puppy “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il are being torn down—a capitol offense in that hole of a nation. These valiant warriors are risking persecution and fatality to sneak out film of the suffering of the people. (Isn’t it interesting the way the Hippy Press ignores these horrors but cries over the death of a tree? These were the same who pretended that Pol Pot wasn’t a monster to justify what they were lying about—Vietnam.) Once again we have an Asian nation crying out for help in defeating an undeniable malevolence. They have the passion, the desire, and the manpower…they only need the wherewithal. They are willing to fight for themselves. We need to help them.

North Korea compares George W. Bush to Hitler

SEOUL Wednesday, Nov 23, 2005
North Korea denounced US President George W. Bush as a "wicked man" comparable to Adolf Hitler, and labeled his advocating democracy a pretext for invading other countries. It is a Good pretext, one should admit...

"The US admonition for `freedom' and `democracy' is to invent pretexts for violating [the] sovereignty of other countries and nations and establishing its unchallenged domination over the world," the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KNCA) wrote on late Monday.
The United States enjoys unchallenged domination over the world DUE to freedom and democracy...

Bush, addressing South Korea-based US troops during an Asian tour on Sunday, didn't directly mention the North but alluded to the communist nation as he praised the capitalist South. South Korea "is now a beacon of liberty that shines across the most heavily armed border in the world," Bush said."It is a light reaching to a land shrouded in darkness,'' he said.
"Together the United States and [South Korea] have shown that the future belongs to freedom, and one day all Koreans will enjoy the blessings of freedom," he said.

Can anyone argue with that?

Pyongyang said Bush's "reckless remarks would entail adverse consequences in the process for denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula."

Yea, adverse consequences for anyone nuclearizing the Korean Penisula.

North Korea threatens to build up deterrent
SEOUL: North Korea's foreign ministry has threatened to multiply its deterrent force a thousand times in an angry response to a UN vote expressing serious concern about Pyongyang's human rights record.

That would give North Korea a billion man army. Should fit well with China's plans...

The ministry dismissed the UN General Assembly
Eh, take a number...

vote as an absurd attempt by Washington to topple the Stalinist regime. They SHOULD have bypassed the U.N, like with Iraq...

The UN resolution adopted Thursday expressed concern about reports on torture, public executions, and the imposition of the death penalty for political reasons and the extensive use of forced labour in communist North Korea.
That sounds about Right....

"If one is to protect human rights one should have state power among other things and powerful deterrent to defend its state power", said the ministry statement carried late Monday by the official Korean Central News Agency.
State power has historically been rendered ineffective by free people, many times over.
North Korea uses the term deterrent to refer to nuclear weapons it says it has developed. "The Korean people will ... defend the precious socialist system and bolster up the deterrent for self-defence a thousand times under any circumstance and situation. It blamed the United States for the adoption of the resolution, which was in fact sponsored by the European Union. "The present US administration with inveterate enmity towards the DPRK has put spurs to it's realising the absurd attempt at a regime change under the signboard of human rights", the spokesman said in a statement.

The inveterate enmity of free people towards the D.P.R.K will not ever end, until Kim Jong Il has been toppled.

U.S. Chemical Warfare in Iraq under Fire

Pyongyang, November 23, 2005 (KCNA) -- An Italian TV recently disclosed that the U.S. imperialist aggression troops used chemical weapons against civilians during their siege and assault operation against Fallujah City in Iraq last year. If a chemical weapon was used, would that dude still be running?
In this regard Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a signed commentary says that the U.S. use of chemical weapons in Fallujah clearly reveals the true colors of the U.S. imperialists as the worst human rights abusers, most brutal man-killers and incarnation of evil. I consider authoritarian governments like the D.P.R.K, an "incarnation of evil"... The commentary goes on: The above-said operation conducted by the U.S. forces against the citizens of Fallujah was a criminal act quite contrary to the Geneva convention on protecting civilians in wartime, which bans the indiscriminate attack causing massive casualties, and the convention banning chemical weapons signed by the U.S. in 1997. The U.S. is the biggest possessor of nuclear and biological and chemical weapons in the world. It has stockpiled at least 30,000 tons of chemical weapons. During the Balkan war, the U.S. imperialists used more than 41,000 depleted uranium shells in southern Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro and other areas, toppling a sadistic mass murderer... They also used at least 300 tons of depleted uranium shells in the Persian Gulf War in 1991 and over 311,000 depleted uranium shells in the Iraq war, toppling a sadistic mass murderer... Their use of chemical weapons took lives of many civilians(Halabja March 16, 1988) and severely destroyed ecological environment(salt marshes, Kuwati oilfields) in the world. Their indiscriminate use of even chemical weapons to invade and plunder other countries is an unpardonable crime against humanity as it threatens the very existence of humankind. Nevertheless, the U.S. imperialists, keeping mum about their monstrous crimes, are raising a hue and cry over other countries' "possession of weapons of mass destruction" and "production of biological and chemical weapons" in a bid to blackmail (Agreed Framework 1994) and threaten them. What is more intolerable is that the U.S. dares pulls up the DPRK over its non-existent "human rights issue" in an effort to increase its sanctions and pressure upon it. Sanctions and pressure well deserved. Now for a lefty pipe-dream...

The U.S. would be well advised to admit its crimes and kneel down before the international community to beg for forgiveness if it wishes to escape stronger protest and denunciation from the world people. Hahahaha! Kneel down and beg forgivness for liberating 50 million people from mass-oppression, or face the wrath of "stronger protest and denounciation" from the D.P.R.K... lol!

Silent Howl

By Jon Herskovitz
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said on Monday last week's U.N. vote chastising the impoverished communist state for human rights abuses was part of a Western and Japanese plot to topple its leaders.

Much of North Korea's diplomacy involves accusations of secret national plots...

A U.N. General Assembly committee on Thursday approved a resolution expressing concern over reported human rights violations in North Korea, including torture, public executions and maintaining a network of political prisons.

"We regard the recent human rights resolution (as) no more than (the) barking of a dog at the moon," a spokesman for North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "The present U.S. administration with inveterate enmity toward the DPRK has put spurs to its moves to realize the absurd attempt at a 'regime change' under the signboard of 'human rights'," the spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

Back to the same old time tested, North Korean foreign policy staple... Blame every issue or problem on the United States of America. A country on the other side of the planet. No matter how absurd.

What can the U.N do, anyway?

Regrettable they could all only read ABOUT it, in the "news"paper...

Kim Jong Il's Famous Work Posted on Internet Website in U.S.

Pyongyang, November 21, 2005 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il's famous work "On Correctly Understanding the Originality of Kimilsungism" was posted on the Internet website of the Communist Party of the United States of America (Juche) on Nov. 7.

Do North Koreans not see hypocrisy in this "report"? How evil is this?

U.S. Urged to End Its Military Presence in Iraq

Pyongyang, November 20, 2005 (KCNA) -- If the U.S. imperialists continue to pursue their policy of military occupation and rule over Iraq, defying the demand of the Iraqi people like Zarqawi and the mind-set of the "world public", they will meet only bitter shame and miserable death. It's never happened before... Rodong Sinmun Sunday warns this in a signed article as regards the daily increasing death toll of the U.S. forces in Iraq. If there is one thing North Korea knows well, it's "rising death tolls"... Recalling that the death toll of the U.S. forces in Iraq reached 2,020 and the number of those wounded 14,500 as of Oct. 31 and their casualties have further increased recently, So has THE ENEMY'S! the article says: For this reason, the Bush administration is working hard to justify and perpetuate the U.S. military occupation and rule over Iraq, trumpeting that the U.S. is fighting in Iraq for a "free world" and urging the "brave U.S. soldiers" to fight for the sake of the "honor" of the U.S. But such behavior of the Bush administration has only driven the U.S. soldiers in Iraq into a bottomless dilemma, of which country is next. It is beyond doubt that any U.S. measure to tighten its military occupation and rule over Iraq would only touch off stronger resistance of Iraqis against it. "It" being tyranny and terror. Only disgrace and death await the aggressors. History has no precedent in which aggressors escaped their defeat. The U.S. is keen to establish the American-style domination and order in the world and act an emperor, going against the trend of the times, I'll say!.
This is, however, as foolish an act as digging its own grave. Like Zarqawi did with the bombs...
