    @mcmothercruncher Are they racist? I just don't imagine they get much opportunity to practice it if they are. They would probably have to hand out pictures of the races they are meant to hate to the population for them to even know who they are to be racist too.

    Wow, nickthegun, the PSI comment is priceless.

    Yes glaeken, incredibly racist- all part of the uber nationalistic vibe. Lacking knowledge about the outside world = ignorance... which is usually where racism flourishes.
    Quite a few people visiting mention the state assigned guides very casually commenting on Jew "hook noses" etc. All the ludicrous cartoon stuff.

    The best way to tear down conflict is with love, not more conflict. A lot of totalitarian countries have been reformed over time, I dont see why North Korea has to be different.

    Sports has always been a universal thing between countries. It's a chance to put aside their differences. Yeah Denis Rodman made a bit of a gaff with the Psy thing, and in all honesty the man is a bit of nutter, but I thing the spirit of what he is doing is actually very noble.

    I agree with you matey, but, come on, noble?

    He's almost certainly just loving having smoke blown up his arse and like most celebrities he'd turn up to the opening of a bag of lettuce if it contributed to the Cult Of Himself.
    The carefully invited (and surveilled) audience aren't about to learn anything- or ever be in a position to act if they did- and people outside of Pyonyang will probably have no idea he visited.

    I've just done a little sick in my mouth.

    So now n. Korea have pulled out of the peace treaty with s. Korea and shut the border.

    /Sighs.

    Assuming they have a capability to do it. Hopefully they don't. Soul is right near the border too.

    They don't. Their nukes are enormous and more akin to the weapons dropped on Japan in the 40s. Meanwhile they just about have the ability to put a biscuit tin in low orbit.

    They're just throwing their toys of their pram.

    Yeah, the nuclear eradication of one of the worlds most advanced countries would be awesome.

    Seems pretty unlikely they have nuclear warheads at this stage though, and their success with missiles has been...ahem...hit and miss.

    But they don't need those things to make a nuisance of themselves. They've got a huge army and an enormous number of artillery pieces aimed at South Korea.

    I think this is the key issue - they don't need nukes, they can just press a button and destroy Seoul. Maybe not press a button...they might have to go round and wind them all up, or light the blue touch paper and run....

    Maybe you can see "hi" to that Kin Jong Un bloke if you see him!! :)

    Starting to feel more likely that something is going to kick off. The Fat Boy's raising the rhetoric so high and getting so much coverage of his 'front line' visits that I feel he'll have to do something now in order to keep face. Also, if they really want to attack America, their best chance to do so is while America is on their doorstep.

    Maybe they'll wait until the Americans go home in a month, and then announce Supreme Victory.

    Nah. It's all about internal politics. He has to assert himself at home and this is the best way to do it. Nobody wants anything to kick off. It'd be suicide for the regime.

    He's just a kid playing war games, I don't think he's got the grapes to kick anything off because he can't be under any illusion that he's not going to get himself and his people killed instantly.
