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.

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

    • CDB says:

      Don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel.

    • dave m brewer says:

      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.

    i loved the computer operating system “choice” there!


  8. Skeptic says:

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

    Oh Caaaa-na-daaaa, our home and na-tive laaaand
    daaa dum da dummm, in all our sons commaaand…

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

    “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.

  10. Chad says:

    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.
