This will become one of the great tourist traps of all time eventually. First Cuba.

    I go back to Cuba in a heartbeat!!! I remember Cuba from the 50’s and very early 60’s. Lucy I’m Home!!!

    Of course, if you go just off the beaten path, you will encounter starvation and abject poverty like we have never imagined. And they blame it all on the United States.

    • bobbo, the ONLY true Libertarian on this blog, all others being dogmatic posers says:

      Its true. USA does not give N Korea food supplies.

      Why deny the truth?

      • Dr. Mr. horse says:

        why should we if they did not spend every penny on their military and a nuclear program their people could eat.
        So in your little world we are supposed to just give food to every one even those who want us dead

      • JFetch says:

        We have given them food when they accept it. They don’t usually accept it because they don’t want their people knowing they can’t feed them.

        • Cap'nKangaroo says:

          When the North Koreans do accept food their propagandists beat it into the recipients heads that it is not aide but rather tithes owed by the West for war crimes, etc.

      • DC says:

        I hope you are being ironic, because the alternative is too frightening to consider.

        N. Korea has outlawed all economic activity. So they are poor by government design. Behold the socialist ideal. Behold our future.

    Laying flowers at the tomb’s of North Korea’s ex-dictator’s is like paying homage to Adolf Hitler!!! YOU F***ING ASSHOLE!

      Relax… pay your health care tax before you have a heart attack.

    • What? says:

      You should read about the post WWII (world war eleven) history of Korea. Fascinating.

      • What? says:

        The USMGIK tried to contain civil violence in the south by banning strikes on December 8 and outlawing the revolutionary government and the people’s committees on December 12. Things spiraled quickly out of control however, with a massive strike on September 23, 1946 by 8,000 railway workers in Busan which quickly spread to other cities in the South. On October 1, police attempts to control rioters in Daegu caused the death of three student demonstrators and injuries to many others, sparking a mass counter-attack killing 38 policemen. In Yeongcheon, a police station came under attack by a 10,000-strong crowd on October 3, killing over 40 policemen and the county chief. Other attacks killed about 20 landlords and pro-Japanese officials. The US administration responded by declaring martial law, firing into crowds of demonstrators and killing an unknown number of people.

    Cahng-ho I’m home!!!

  5. The0ne says:

    I don’t see any kids playing outside. Where’s the sun btw. What’s the oxygen level in the country? Are there any other color beside white and gray? Hmm, so many questions I think I may have to plan a trip there soon.

    • Most of the Asian Mainland never actually sees the sun. Most of China and both Koreas. Huge contrast to Viet Nam which has a gorgeous sky. One of the best I’ve ever seen outside of Montana.

    In general, when they have established and flourishing McDonalds franchises it’s probably safe to visit. Just a rule of thumb thing.

    • Chairman says:

      Vietnam and Cambodia are both safe and pleasant to visit–and there is no McDonalds in either of them.

      But it’s probably better that ignorant chauvinists stay home in any case.

    What a depressing country. I wouldn’t go there if I were paid and it was free. I love Canada!

    … ok, I’d go for $1,000 minimum and with all expenses paid, but I wouldn’t like it.

  9. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    Every progressive desires to inflict that upon us, but for them the ruling elite lifestyle.

    For example, neither Obama or his family, or the Hollywood pukes with him, will rely on Obamacare… Like Castro, they will have their own private doctors.

    Are you lefties ready to welcome Obama’s IRS Overseers into your home, in 2015, during the year seven of our Dear Leader?

    Purely a coincidence that war with Iran started guaranteeing Obama’s reelection….

    • So what says:

      I’m not worried, I am sure Ron Paul will repeal Romney care.

    • Cap'nKangaroo says:

      Your abject lack of any grasp of the facts are on display again. Obama will have a private doctor, just as you and I will have our own private doctors. So stop with the lies and obfuscations.

      “Purely a coincidence that war with Iran started guaranteeing Obama’s reelection….”

      It has been the Republicans who have been urging war with Iran. Just about every Republican who spoke at AIPAC in March of this year were criticizing Obama for NOT pushing/talking up war with Iran. They were criticizing him for wanting to let the sanctions take hold (as they now are). The wanted him to threaten military strikes and worse if Iran did not immediatly roll over and give up. In Feb of this year Rudy Gulliani on CNN said “We need a president who can say the words ‘bomb them’ and actually can do it if he has to protect us from Iran becoming a nuclear power,” Giuliani declared. “We are the largest military in the entire world, they are a small, tiny little military power compared to us.”

      In the Republican Pres. debate in November of last year Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Cain were all for war with Iran. Only Ron Paul demurred.

      If there is a looming war with Iran on the horizon, Mitt Romney and most of the Republican party have been cheerleading the prospect.

        Capt. you have to use small sentences and even smaller words when talking to alfie, he tends to lose track easily.

    • orchidcup says:

      Romney care was declared constitutional by a swing vote provided by the Chief Justice Roberts, a conservative that was appointed by George W. Bush.

      The Chief Justice waved a magic wand, and the fine imposed by the individual mandate magically became a tax, which would be declared constitutional by the Supreme Court.

      This is similar to the metaphysical transformation of a corporation into a person.

      The Supreme Court has supernatural powers that the rest of us do not possess.

      The Supreme Court must be God.

    “We are ready to everything.”

    If South Korea doesn’t apologize for some imagined slight, the North will do something. The above is what a very nervous tour guide told bus tourists.

    North Korea seems to be unpredictable these days? It will be interesting to see how this whole situation will turn out. Hopefully for the good.
