The guests laid bouquets before the statue and paid homage to the President.
Apparently Moe and Larry couldn't make it...
They have joined coal miners in their work and break, encouraging them to boost the coal output.
They have also given art performances and recreation parties in pits.
The Phibada Opera Troupe, the State Folk Art Troupe, the State Theatrical Troupe and Pyongyang Circus dispatched their art squads to mines for agitation activities.
Encouraged by their activities, the coal mines have topped their daily targets.
Agitation activities? I think we found the missing Wisconsin Senators....psst! Look in North Korea! I especially like this part: The Phibada Opera Troupe, the State Folk Art Troupe, the State Theatrical Troupe and Pyongyang Circus dispatched their art squads to mines for agitation activities.
Apparently the NK Opera kicks ass with fortissimo...
And it looks like Jong Il is taking a page from the psych book Ghadaffi is writing:
They are standing against the fellow countrymen, in cooperation with the aggressive outsiders, and this is treachery and the root cause that spoiled the relations between the north and the south of Korea, the article notes, adding:
Their call for "priority" to the relations with the U.S. is a treacherous doctrine that reduces south Korea to a full-dress colony of foreign forces and complicates the settlement of the issue of the north-south relations.
"No nukes, opening and 3000 dollars", a "policy toward the north" by the south Korean authorities, are a very sinister policy for confrontation as they set the disarmament and "opening" of the DPRK as a preconditions for improved north-south relations. This is little difference from foreign forces' assertion that the DPRK should "abandon its nuclear program first."
The U.S. strategy toward Korea is just a strategy for war of aggression on the DPRK. In order to put it into practice, the U.S. has steadily rendered the situation of the Korean Peninsula tense with new war provocations for the last decades.
To cooperate with such foreign aggressors is a treacherous act of bringing disaster of war to the nation.
The south Korean authorities' cooperation with foreigners in war moves for aggression on the DPRK is now creating a touch-and-go situation in the peninsula.
Their military cooperation with the Japanese reactionaries seeking reinvasion of Korea is another main factor that drives the tension of the peninsula to the brink of war.
The reality clearly shows that their anachronistic cooperation with foreign forces is unpardonable treachery of destroying the north-south relations and bringing dark clouds of a nuclear war to the peninsula.
In standard nutless fashion, when the men fail, call in the broads!
The Korean women enjoy good luck as they have carved out their destinies, leading a worthwhile life under the care of the great leader and the great party, the editorial says, and goes on:
The shining Korean women's movement originated from the formation of the Anti-Japanese Women's Association, the first Korean women's revolutionary organization, under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung.
The Korean women have exercised equal rights with men since the President formed the Democratic Women's Union of Korea and promulgated the law on sex equality.
General Secretary Kim Jong Il published many works, making sure that the immortal feats performed by the President before the women's movement have been exalted. He also led the women to display their responsibility and role in the society and the revolutionary development.
Excellent is the ideological and moral world of the Korean women who have grown up under the care of the great leader and the great party.
The women play their role in the on-going drive for the great revolutionary surge with patriotism and loyalty and indomitable will. This include the women soldiers reliably defending the defense line of the country, firmly holding the arms of the revolution, the women at the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex working hard to increase Juche-iron production along with smelters, women scientists doing their shares to make a breakthrough in the development of cutting-edge science and technology.
Besides the normal laugh-a-minute from the land of No Dongs, KCNA has sure been voluminous of late. For those who don't know, it means they're about to pull something. I can hardly wait!!!!
And finally, this most disturbing tiny mention, more confirmation of ISLAMMUNISM:
Projects will be pushed under plan to further expand infrastructures of the electric power industry and other fields in this region.
The government has allocated 1.6 billion U.S. dollars to fund the development projects.
