    Kim Jong Il - North Korea

    Surprised none of the CVF members have already picked up this news yet...

    I'm shocked and flabbergasted at the reaction of the people of North Korea, in the video in the link below....

    I have never seen anything like this in my entire lifetime... so unreal.

    He is taking up the tradition of "looking at things":

    This guys is now reported to be ruling ten times harder than his father: if someone is caught trying to escape NK, he will not only execute the deflector, but also their family in three generations backwards!

      That man should be released from all his earthly duties as soon as possible...., to say it in a very nice way.

        After having lived in Asia for so many years, the story of NK fascinates me quite a bit. I have BIG problems understanding what makes people react in the way they did, and I sometimes wonder what kind of world-view a person like the new leader might have. Does he really think it is "alright" to treat his people like that...?

          I have BIG problems understanding what makes people react in the way they did,
          That was commented on on our national radio and most of the educated and asia specialists interviewd, seemed to agree on some sort of mass suggestion, not exactly brainwashing.
          If you looked closer in the far background, the people there didn't cry or screem all that much as those closest to the camera.
          I thought it was pathetic and I felt kind of sorry for the elected ones who were forced to cry in front of the camera. Yes, forced...., in my opinion.

          Poor people of NK. They should've gotten some sort of help from all the rest of the world...., but hey, they don't produce oil and gas, so first of all the "world police" USA has no natural interest in initiating anything.

            Apparently, there is a lot of fun in collecting images of Kim Jong "looking at things"....

              I don't know if you have seen this kick in the guts of a certain dictator.... (I should probably be careful not to criticize HIM, the fearless Leader, or me and my entire family will get executed).... but this girl's speech moved me to tears. I wonder how long NK can keep up this abuse of humanity before the world finally gets enough .....

              What do you feel after watching this girl talking about her life? Did you feel a little moist in your eye or did this just not create any reaction?

                Scary --- really scary: North Korea has gotten hold of an old Russian submarine and apart from a dashing green color, are installing systems to make it able carrying nuclear rockets....

                  Amazing to think there are still countries willing to deal with them; Russia, China, Syria, Iran... Is Pakastan on that list as well?

                      Kim Jong-Un has his private Jet: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-birthday.html

                      His Father, Kim Jong-Il was afraid of flying, so he had his private train to travel around the country and to China and Russia.
