Some DPRK goodies....

Snappy sloganeering at its most DPRK-esque:

"Let the entire nation unite under the banner of north-south joint declarations and achieve national reunification at the earliest date!"

Meanwhile, the Finns will have something with which to curl up during the long winter nights:

"General Secretary Kim Jong Il's work "On Having a Correct Understanding on Nationalism" was brought out in booklet by the Finnish Communists' Association and the Finnish National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea on Feb. 14....The work deals with the formation and development of nationalism and the essence of genuine nationalism and its progressive nature, and tasks to preserve the national identity and defend and realize independence of the nation".

The ideal Valentine's day gift I'm sure.

Elsewhere, KJI has been receiving birthday greetings:

< Rashed Khan Menon, chairman of the Central Committee of the
Workers' Party of Bangladesh, and Hasanul Huq Inu, chairman of the
Central Executive Committee of the Bangladesh National Socialist
Party, noted that thanks to the original Songun policy of Kim Jong Il
peace and stability are being preserved on the Korean Peninsula and
the DPRK has turned into a military power which no formidable
enemy dares provoke.

My emphasis...

A democracy where the people do not choose who governs them and a republic with an autocratic ruler determined by a system of hereditary succession.

Perhaps the ‘Ironically-named Democratic Republic’ would be better. At the very least the North Korea bit should left out; any accuracy can only lead to confusion.

(PS I only commented because the word 'Huq' caught my eye. Am motivated by disappointment)

Dave - agreed. Were it not possibly the most hellish place on the planet, the name would be quite comical.

It was the name Hasanul that caught my eye

a proprietary treatment for piles, I believe

atomic piles, in the case of NK - jolly painful
