Random highlights today of stories at North Korea’s official media, the Korean Central News Agency:

“A meeting of Pyongyangites took place at Kim Il Sung Square Friday to support the statement of the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) and to win victory in the final do-or-die battle with aggressors including the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet group of traitors.”

“The U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK that has been intensified after the DPRK’s launch of satellite for peaceful purposes has now reached the phase of a provocation of a nuclear war. The U.S. deputy secretary of Defense who flew into south Korea for the final examination of the preparations for a nuclear war against the DPRK ordered to ignite a nuclear war, making a bluff that the U.S. military has made the second Korean war a top priority.”

“The south Korean warmongers, elated with the backing of the U.S. master, are threatening punishment to ‘provocation’ of the DPRK and even seeking to mount precision missile strikes on the statues of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung andKim Jong Il, symbol of the DPRK’s dignity. …It is the steadfast will of the DPRK to react to the U.S. nuclear blackmail with merciless nuclear attacks, and war of aggression with a total war of justice.”

Yet for all the impending bloodshed and mushroom cloud(s), the Tourism section of the propaganda arm predicts a rising number of foreign visitors this year.

“In particular, the arrivals will be on rise from European countries, including Germany, UK and the Netherlands.

The figure of applicants for tourism in the DPRK by plane has already exceeded last year’s twice while that of those for tourism by bicycle increased sharply as compared with last year’s.

International railway service has been improved and regular and non-regular flights from various regions will be available.

Mini-golf playing in the Rungna People’s Pleasure Park in Pyongyang will be one of attractions this year.”
