The DPRK update

In which it shows off its inferiority complex, we discover the unintentionally amusing name of the DPRK's yes man in Prague , it claims to have 'political freedom' and asks what did the 'Romans' ever do for them:

"The recent annual report of the U.S. Defense Department said “The rim of the great Asian Continent is already home to five nuclear powers: China, India, Pakistan, the DPRK and Russia”. It is the first time that the U.S. officially recognized the DPRK as a nuclear weapons state and announced it in its government report". Look at *me* Mum.

"Jaroslav Kafka, chairman of the Paektusan Czech-Korean Friendship Association and chairman of the Czech Group for the Study and Materialization of the Juche Idea, was elected chairman of the preparatory committee at the ceremony [to commemorate the Day of the Sun and February 16 in 2009]". [Insert joke about giant beetle here].

"All the members of the society enjoy an independent and creative life to their heart's content, fully guaranteed all the rights of a social being including political freedom and rights, the right to work and existence and the right to education and medical treatment". Words fail me.

"The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors is letting ultra-right conservative maniacs give "special lectures on modern history" before students of hundreds of high schools in Seoul. This is an unprecedented charade. In those lectures the conservative elements are talking such sheer nonsense as the south Korean economy in the modern times "began to take shape" in the period of the colonial rule of Japan and "Japan's colonization of Korea was helpful to her modernization and civilization."

Here are some extracts from the Wiki entry on Japanese colonial rule: "Korea during the late Joeson period was a largely an isolationist pre-industrial society, with most foreign trade prohibited and attempts at economic modernization stifled by an extremely conservative Court and landed aristocracy....During the early period of Japanese rule, the Japanese government created...a significant transportation infrastructure on the Korean peninsula. Port facilities, an extensive railway system, including a main truck railway from the southern port city of Pusan through the capital of Keijo and north to the Chinese border were developed". That the Japanese were not invited to subjugate Korea and were not there out of love for the Korean people is clear enough, but they did not descend upon Korea like the Mongol hordes upon Asia.

Much better, thank you!

Your N.Korea posts are the equivalent of the Geoff Hoon posts on Guido - I know they are coming but regardless, they always raise a smile.

ND - You've got me bang to rights Guv. I know hear jazz noodling in my head when the LMB group is mentioned..

STB - Happy to oblige. As is doubtless obvious, I rather enjoy doing them.
