      I hope you're right.

      So, how do North Koreans immortalize their fair leaders? Is he getting pickled or what?

      Isn't that why nations go to war? You know, to protect trade routes, resources, valuable allies, etc...

      If they treat him like Kim Il-Sung, then yep. Lenin-style embalming and glass coffin for your viewing pleasure.

      Woah, hold off on signing that waybill yet, son. Reportedly, even though deserted and barely-used, what few major highways NK has were constructed in the 70's and haven't seen a lick of maintenance since, so they are a bumpy, cracked, potholed mess.

      This thread disappointed me... every dictator should have at least one Mercedes 600 pullman
      yes his father made him a 4star general he didnt earn crap

      lets remember kim jong il is also the same guy who claimed that he shot like a 19 on his first time golfing EVER

      saying he is a 4 star general is a joke he only graduated anything because of who he is he hasnt had to do a damn thing since he was born, i have a feeling if he tries anything with a bigger country he will get CRUSHED

      North Korea is interesting to read about.

      Ever hear about the Ryungyong Hotel? One of the tallest in the world when it was built. Never opened, never occupied and if I recall correctly, almost bankrupted the North Korean regime.

      Kim himself even had the hotel removed from official photos of Pyongyang for a time as it was such an eyesore (Before being covered in glass in 2010ish)

      Why a country who allows so few visitors needed such a huge hotel is beyond me.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryugyong_Hotel



      Oh and a car in N. Korea
