Wow. It's really interesting when countries care more about looking good, and impressing foreigners, then actually taking care of the citizens (who by the way seem to be second class to foriegners). Strange seeing that.

Just like the gilded age, NK looks nice on the outside but the inside is rotten to the core nonetheless.  It's all a PR image.  What the photographer fails to take pictures of are the starving citizens, etc.  There's no coincidence that tourists are only allowed to visit certain places.

Strangely enough, I'd want to walk around there and see it for myself. But... Yeah. What Tony and many of those posters in the thread said. :P

Thanks for showing those pictures. They further tell me that that country must be dealt with SOMEDAY in the future. Communism, IMO, has no place in this world. Socialism at its core, in theory, may sound attractive, but it ultimately leads to communism.

But...of course, there are several other third-world countries in this world that are in similar predicaments, ruled by heartless tyrants. I mean...if you're going to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, and tell the people it's to liberate the people in those countries, then you should do the same for the peoples of North Korea, Somalia, and ESPECIALLY Sudan.

Back to those pictures, it was definitely fascinating witnessing their every day life, and having to cope with the limitations of basic freedoms that their government sets on them. To be denied that...is unacceptable. For christ's sake...barbed wire fences by their beaches.

And you're welcome Logick. That was an emotional documentary.

I remember watching a documentary about North Korean schools. A big part of the documentary was about Anne Frank's diary being read in those schools. The goverment wanted children to make the connection between America and Nazi Germany. They interviewed a couple of children and it was so clear everyone knew exactly what to say, word by word...

They also showed a North Korean university and students being thought English. They were having a discussion about the internet. One of the students said his brother was studying computer science and that he worked with the internet. Again, this felt so forced it was hard to believe.
