North Korea Blasts US With 'We Are The World' Missiles

Propaganda?
To whom?

To South Koreans, clearly. Also, considering their agenda, possibly kyopos. An entire minute of the video, lovingly wedged between the minute about adoring the Earth, and the one about blasting the shit out of New York, is devoted to reunification (under the North). By posting to YouTube, this also isn't (yet) blocked by government filters and can be viewed in any South Korean home or internet café.

I bet this dream actually interprets into "I'm in love with my mother".

We should get an expert on this. Protip: I'm not an expert

What kind of tone are they trying to set here? Who shows cities burning with gentle piano music? I know they're all poor and living in the past but honestly did nobody working on this have an artistic bone in their body?

That's... exactly the point. All we'd need to do is take out Pyongyang.

All we would need to do is slaughter over three million human beings, I get what you're saying.

Small price to pay to make the lives of over 70 million other people better!

You know American politicians make such a big deal about Iran's nuclear program but North Korea is a much less stable country and their possession of nukes is much more scary to me.

Never go right to bed after eating kim chee. You have the weirdest dreams...

"Despite attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us," reads one caption in the video, "never will anyone be able to stop the people marching towards a final victory."

"...So long as the march in lockstep behind Glorious Leader. Otherwise, we might have to beat them up and throw them in a prison camp. That might stop them."

Honestly these people are turning into an amusing little side show, claiming that they're going to take over the world when they can't even launch one rocket without causing the poverty rate to sky rocket. I'm surprised the poor people that have to live under the rule of these idiots haven't rebelled yet.

they dont have the strength, literally.

North Korea reportedly executing cannibals

A new report quoting eyewitnesses in North Korea says officials have publicly executed several people for cannibalism in recent years.

some even supposedly dug up dead people to eat them and a pair allergedly ate their own children....

I KNEW I'd seen the footage of America being bombed somewhere before, haha.

Oh god these guys

Jumwa:

DVS BSTrD:
Honestly, can we just put those people out of their misery already?
Canada, Britian, Australia, New Zealand: you wouldn't mind looking the other way would you?
It's just one city.

"Just one city"? There's more to North Korea than a single city.

And I don't think any rational person would look the other way at the slaughtering of millions of innocents. North Korean's are not a hive mind.

Pyongyang is reserved for North Korea's elite, like the party members, military leaders and so fourth.

Ok I've been learning Blender 3d for the past four weeks and I think even I could put together a better project!

Daystar Clarion:
Thank god they didn't use their strongest weapon against us...

They have awesome air you know :D

Kinda reminds you of the early parts of Iron Man 2,doesn't it? Where the other contries are trying to replicate Tony's Armor, only to end horribly?

Didnt they have a clip in there showing a IM suit from North Korea?

"Marching towards a final victory..."

What victory?

Is there some sort of international contest going on that I wasn't aware of?

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME? ;__;

Attempted to comment to the youtube video:
It's taken your country 26 years to build a shitty hotel that's not even open yet, good luck with your space bomber. Protip: Hungry people don't build good space ships.

25 million people are forced to live out their lives in poverty, suffering and blindness to the outside world, for the entertainment and benefit of a handful of madmen.

I just find it really hard to laugh at this stuff.

EDIT:

" This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Activision Games Inc."

Alright, I chuckled.

Over three million people reside in Pyongyang. Those include the families and children of beaurocrats who do little more than manage water regulation systems and other mundane things because the alternative is to starve in the countryside.

Sorry if I'm not so glib about massacring humans as some of you are.

No more video, Activision put the copyright take down notice on it!

D'aaaawww! They're so cute! Look how hard they try to look tough! Can I keep it? Pleeeaaassseee! I'll walk it and and clean up after it and and feed it better than they can feed themselves!

Vardermir:
Fun fact: The graphics are at least in part, if not entirely from Modern Warfare 3.

I was wondering why I couldn't watch it because Activision claimed a copyright violation. Now I'll never be able to legitimately join the NK mocking cool crowd.

Yes,they did indeed.It blew up too. XD

Damn. It must be scary to see that if you love in the States. I know that if the US retaliated to an attack, North Korea's military would be crushed over night, but it's still a real worry.

which makes the whole thing even more funny really.

Actually, they kind of are. Perhaps not a literal hive-mind, but on the spectrum oh hive-mind to independent free-thinkers, they are much closer to the hive-mind end. They are heavily indoctrinated, and conditioned not to think for themselves.

If anything "hive-mind" is being generous, because it implies the ability to harness multiple minds for greater processing power. In North Korea, the indoctrination leads to multiple minds being crippled for vastly lower overall performance. The whole is actually less than the sum of its parts.

Worst case scenario: NK Actually launches a nuke that does something.
Outcome: NK crushed by EVERYBODY!
Seriously, not even China is going to vouch for them on that shit.

I expect to see North Korea "liberated" in my life time to be honest, dictatorships like this just don't stand, especially today with our technology, even the most anal of censors can't keep it all out. It will be interesting to see what it's like for North Koreans to adjust to global life.

Your Gaffer:

Hipocrisy.

I don't feel safe with US or Russia having nuclear bombs either.

SonOfVoorhees:
I really wish NK would fire a missile at America, just so America can shoot it down and have free rein to kick NK ass. lol. Not even China could back up NK if they actually launched a missile.....China is already getting annoyed with NK. Its like the mouthy little brother that China has to keep making apologies and excuses for.

Yeah China doesn't like NK, but they would dislike the US being so close even more. I suspect China would invade NK and use it as A buffer zone from SK.

North Korea is like a wannabe super villain, they try so hard to be take seriously only to have their propaganda taken down by Activision.

Seriously, the only thing stopping America from storming in there and killing all the "ENEMIES OF FREEDOM" like they did with Iran Libya half the middle east is China, and even they can't stand up to the political pressure of aiding somebody threatening to nuke the entire western hemisphere.

The real losers here are the North Korean people, who still have to deal with their government spending all their food money on missiles.

Oh my fucking god. Activision have blocked the video on grounds of copyright violation.

"FEAR THE UNSTOPPABLE NORTH KOREAN PROPAGANDA MACHI-- oh wait this was from a game? Where's Kim Jong Lawyer?"

N.K didn't know DNA existed until relatively recently. Perhaps someone should warn them about fallout radiation?

This is something that I don't understand. How does currency work in a place like North Korea? Surely no other countries recognize their money as being worth anything. They don't really exist in the international trade system. So, how is their money worth anything internally? Since they have so few resources, what does their money actually represent?

How do they even "spend money" on missiles? Being a dictatorship, they could print as much money as they want, but that doesn't translate into actual resources. Is this all driven by China? But if it is all from China, why doesn't China just give them food, and refuse to give them nuclear material? Surely, that would be better for both countries. North Korea doesn't need nuclear weapons, and China doesn't need a crazy little brother bragging about his invasion plans. But both countries could certainly use the land-mass more productively.

It's just one city.

Are you suggesting to level an entire city? The vast majority of the North Korean population live under oppressive rule and are completely innocent of the crimes of the governing regime. They don't deserve to be eradicated like that.

Your Gaffer:

I agree. I know just recently I read somewhere that the spokes group for the North Korean government basically said that the reason they are building missiles and testing nukes is to take out the US.

And then North Korea wonders why the UN is being so "mean/unfair" and trying to stop them.

"FEAR US!!! WE ARE THE WORLD!!!!!!"
