PHOTO MOMENT North Korean Poster of Missiles Attacking U.S. Capitol
A poster image of missiles attacking the U.S. Capitol building hangs on a wall of a shoe factory in Sinuiju, in North Korea, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2002. The city of 400,000, which lies on the border with China, is to be walled off from the rest of North Korea and turned into a special economic zone in an attempt to attract foreign investment to the isolated nation. The Korean characters read ''If someone starts an invasion war, we will crush the U.S. first.''
I would like to think that they're bluffing but we have to consider that North Korea is the one Communist state that has not changed or liberalized in any significant way, as opposed to their comrades in China, Cuba and what was formerly the Warsaw Pact in Eastern Europe. They have always been a staunch Stalinist state with an authoritarian pantheon of self-seeking apparatchiks. Moreover, their Juche ideology of leader-worship reflects a way of thinking that one would expect to see fifty years ago.
Having said that, I believe the traditional Asian approach to Marxism is still alive and well in the DPRK. Mao Zedong was willing to destroy two-thirds of mankind through thermonuclear war in order to perpetuate his revolution and I'm sure that Kim Jong-il is crazy enough to do the same thing in order to get what he wants.
This poster is a brag. Don't worry, they will not, and can not crush the U.S. They always do this bragging stuff for a morale reason inside the nation. And for the outsied world they always get ready for some brags and threatenings to get some foods or money... Poor nation... Only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can save this nation. Then they will be fully feed with the Words of God and with the provisions of God
