North Korea Celebrates

STORY: North Korea celebrated the 80th anniversary of the formation of the Down-with-Imperialism Union (DIU) by President Kim Il Sung with China, in a lavish parade on Tuesday (October 17) night. Thousands of Koreans in traditional cloth danced and sang in the Indoor Stadium in Pyongyang, holding flares and torches and formed human signs that could be read from above.

The parade ended with a brilliant spectacle of fireworks which lit up

My observations: They had quite a turnout, everyone dressed the same, Sanctions don't dampen their party spirit and they really like to light it up, I wonder if the signs that you can see from above say anything about where the WMD's might be more likely they're just giving the satellites that look down on them the finger.

Final impression...scary bastards

it reminds me very much of GDR times - a big show but just a show - meaningless...

I agree, looks like one helluva parade though
