“Immature” North Korea Has Started Pelting South Korea With Used Toilet Paper
The stand off between North and South Korea has descended to new levels of gross as it turns out North Korea has bombarded the South with balloons full of rubbish.

The balloons, which are fitted with a timer and a minor explosive, were originally used to drop propaganda leaflets across South Korea, with messages like: “Knock out the gang of Park Geun-hye, who aggravated North-South relations by resuming anti-North psychological broadcasts,” and other catchy slogans.

It was South Korea that started the balloon war when it began floating propaganda into the North.

It also resumed its strategy of pumping pop music and anti-North propaganda across the border in early January.

North Korea saw the balloons and decided two could play at this particular political game. At first it retaliated with balloons full of leaflets but this week the deliveries have taken a turn for the disgusting.

Alongside pamphlets, North Korea has been sending old rubbish, cigarette butts and even used toilet paper in its aerial drops.

“When we opened up a bundle that had dropped on the ground, we found plastic bags filled with leaflets and mixed with trash”, a military official told the JoongAng Daily.

“We were concerned that North Korea could have sent biochemical substances to harm our people, but after analysing the contents it was just trash.”


The toilet paper war never ended.
Toilet paper war can never end, for the ass never relents.

A couple years ago South Korea sent balloons with pornographic images manipulated to show the face of a well-known North Korean woman (was either the leader's sister or wife IIRC). It's possible that COVID got into the North via balloon.


I actually feel kind of stupid I didn't think of gasoline sooner for why mechanizing agriculture seems to have been so slow in DPRK. I've always had it in my mind that gasoline has always been tricky and reliance on it could be dangerous but never quite put two and two together.

Best wishes to the guy and the Korean people


What's going on in NK atm exactly? It seems like an attempt at something. Is this related to the re-emergence of Marx and Lenin iconography?
>Kim Jong Un has called for an "industry revolution" in rural regions by building factories nationwide, state media KCNA said
<Attending the groundbreaking ceremony for a plant in Songchon County, east of the capital Pyongyang, Kim pledged to push ahead with his "Regional Development 20×10 Policy", under which the country seeks to open modernised factories in at least 20 remote counties every year for the next 10 years.

Something else i've been seeing a decent bit of is new domestic and industrial constructions in the countryside on www.kcna.co.jp, for example:

BTW getting a house in DPRK seems super fun:
>Present there were Choe Hung Jo, secretary of the South Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, officials in Hongwon County, builders, working people and agricultural workers to live in at the new houses.
<Kim Yong Sik, chairman of the South Hamgyong Provincial People's Committee, made a congratulatory address.
>Licenses for the use of houses were handed over and speeches were made.
<At the end of the meeting, officials visited the owners of the new houses to share joy with them.
Why is everything in the DPRK so wholesome sounding? I want officials to come and share the joy of my new home with me and my family. :)


North Korea after the 90s crisis remained in a sort of historical conundrum, for they could neither liberalize nor go full communist. Maybe these are signs that DPRK is gonna go full communist.


As long as Burgerland is fully dedicated to crushing the communist ideal at best you can hope for a fully militarized socialist state.

I do think they're intent to do their thing, it certainly is not a nation in stagnation and we can only hope it's a liberatory and sucessful project.

And here is Kim Jong Un's speach at the opening of the new WPK Central Cadres Training School from a few days ago (picrel):
(It's the building with Marx and Lenin on >>1857468 )
“I am very glad to attend this opening ceremony of a new school year, which is being held today on the founding anniversary of the Central Cadres Training School of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
“The pride and joy of the teachers who are to give first lecture at the grand institution of the revolution, which millions of our Party members look up to with respect, and of the students who are to receive the first lecture, unforgettable throughout their lives, would also be incomparable.
“Today is a truly worthwhile and exciting day.
“Seeing you comrades standing in fine array in the new campus, I can hardly repress my emotions as I picture in my mind the day when our great expectations and sincere efforts will bear sound fruits.
“The main pillars of our Party, who can claim a large share in its building and activities, and the prominent figures of our Party, who can hold important posts in the political, economic, cultural and defence fields, will be produced here. To think of this, I feel pride in having done the most valuable work for the Party, the country and the people.
“In the past years there have been many memorable grand festivals and remarkable events, but today’s experience of looking to the future of the Workers’ Party of Korea in this place would not be forgotten all my life, I think.
“History will record this opening ceremony, together with the inauguration ceremony in May last, as a strategic step, which would make its significance clearer and more vivid after ten or 20 years, and as a meaningful ceremony, which promised a brighter future for our Party and country.
“The new era of building the Workers’ Party of Korea, the golden age of strengthening the Party, is opening at this point today.
“Extending once again the warmest and most earnest congratulations to the opening ceremony of the glorious political school, I would like to make an appeal to you comrades who are renewing your pledge as you would play the main role in Party building in the new era.
“Our effort to usher in a new era of Party building has already passed the stage of planning, theory formulation and designing; it has entered a radical stage of practice and become an immediate task of socialist construction.
“The demand for talented Party officials who can become pillars in building a powerful, civilized and advanced state by correctly understanding and applying the ideas and lines of the Party Central Committee is quite pressing.
“Talented party cadres capable of leading the development of all fields of politics, military, the economy and culture and of all regions constitute the most valuable and decisive resources for a ruling party, and their role grows more important the more the revolution and construction advance.
“In view of the fact that the characteristic feature of this school is in training Party cadres who will build up a people’s state that can exalt its brilliance all over the world, the school’s mission is more honourable, and you will feel your shoulders heavier with the sense of responsibility.
“What I expect from the teachers and officials of the Central Cadres Training School is that they train all the students to be competent cadres who can lead the whole Party and competent officials who can lead all fields of the state and society vigorously along the track of progressive and civilized development.
“You should dedicate all your qualifications as educators, your Party conscience and your revolutionary enthusiasm to training political activists who can lead all our people who have risen up for the comprehensive development of socialism, Party officials whom the people follow of their own accord.
“Honourable students of the supreme political institution of the Republic,
“You are the reserve backbone cadres of our Party, who will be responsible for Party work in one sector, one field or one region in the future. As such, you should put your heart and soul into achieving excellent academic results so that you can acquire political knowledge and practical ability as soon as possible.
“Your studying objectives should not remain at any given level, nor should your burning enthusiasm for studying wear off.
“The whole of this campus should always be boiling hot with your zeal for reading and learning.
“Attending this ceremony are more than 170 new students, including those to be included in the two-year special course of Party building for the ninth postgraduate term and in the two-year course of Party building for the 33rd term.
“Since its establishment this school has seen dozens of such opening ceremonies, but the fact that you are the first to enrol in the renovated school is a source of honour for you, which you can record in your autobiography with pride.
“You should add lustre to this pride and honour with your burning enthusiasm for learning and excellent academic achievements.
“To spend every moment of his life amid a struggle, always thinking of grim days rather than happy ones this is the attitude of a true member of the Workers’ Party of Korea and a source of honour for a revolutionary.
“I believe that you will make good on your admirable pledges of today and become strong pillars of the country true to the expectations of the Party and the people.
“The talented revolutionaries of the new era, with their soul, flesh and blood dyed red in this sacred place, will become the main force of our Party, dynamically pushing the wheel of gigantic social transformation.
“Hoping that this significant ceremony will mark a brilliant page in the history of our Party building in the new era, and reaffirming that I will do my best to make this school a source of pride for our Party and people, I will finish my speech here.
“Finally, on behalf of the Party Central Committee, I will confer the flag of the Workers’ Party of Korea on the Central Cadres Training School, with my firm belief that this school will stand in the vanguard of the sacred cause of guaranteeing and realizing the glorious inheritance of our Party.”


I support Putin and Kim "John" Un (The John is for his big football-shaped penis.)

I support these men, these patriots, not because I am required, but because I'm paid to. Glory to AHHH mother land! Now fire ze missels



>Unironically. I have become a DPRK stan in my old age.


When I am feeling down I sometimes watch dprk videos. Its my little form of escapism from the liberal virus in daily life.

Random thought I often have is maybe one of the reasons people (westerners especially) believe everything the dprk puts out is fake is because they are in utter disbelief that the country could operate as one big family. I mean after all since so many families are dysfunctional and/or ruined in capitalist societies how it be much better in "totalitarian north korea".

And of course the answer is precisely because it is totalitarian (albeit imperfectly): Totally dedicated to the interests of the popular working masses. Totally planned and organized in economic affairs. Totally devoid of liberal degenerations.


>define the North's territory as separate from the South
>South Koreans should also no longer be referred to as fellow countrymen
you call that uncucking?


I mean, it's realistic? Objectively they have become two different nations. The GDR described West Germany as a seperate nation, which was wrong at the time, because the differences weren't that huge. But people in the DPRK even speak differently at this point, if you don't have an idealist view on the national this is apparent.

Yea, i have to say reading the DPRK news in the evenings does really cheer me up and fills me with some kind of hope.
I remember watching the Laibach in DPRK documentary and what really stood out to me was how all decision in the day to day are taken collectively and consensus is formed, if informally.
Here's some nice news from today:
Russian Youth Friendship Delegation Arrives Here
Pyongyang, June 4 (KCNA) – A Russian youth friendship delegation led by Grigory Petushkov, chairman of the National Council of the Russian Association of Youth and Children, arrived here by air on Monday.
The delegation consists of representatives of major youth organizations and units of Russia, including the National Council of the Russian Association of Youth and Children, the Youth Union and the Lenin Young Communist League.
The Central Committee of the Socialist Patriotic Youth League of the DPRK hosted a reception in welcome of the delegation that evening.

Rodong Sinmun Praises WPK for Realizing Long-cherished Desire of People
Pyongyang, June 4 (KCNA) – The indomitable struggle of the ever-victorious Workers' Party of Korea, which regards the people-first principle as its noble political idea and sets it as an immutable mode of existence to make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people, is now opening up a new era of comprehensive rejuvenation of the state in which all dreams and ideals of the people are translated into brilliant reality on this land, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.
It is the nature of the WPK to regard the people as Heaven and make selfless, devoted efforts for them, the article says, and goes on:
The WPK turned the revolution into the love for and trust in the people and has always remained boundlessly faithful to its sacred mission, steadily carrying on the sacred journey of devoted service for the people's wellbeing.
A miraculous country which provided the model of building an independent and self-reliant power and a powerful country which has proudly exercised its absolute strength and influence and put the dignity and rights and interests of the people on the highest level - this is the true picture of the socialist power created by the WPK.
It is the fighting spirit and mettle of the WPK, the party which is never complacent with the work for the people, to make uninterrupted offensive and advance after setting fresh and development-oriented goals for the people's wellbeing.
It is thanks to the energetic leadership of the respected General Secretary that our Party is boundlessly loyal to its mission and duty as a genuine people's party and has written brilliant epic of making selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people on this land.
The speed of our advance toward a bright future is further accelerated and the ideal society of the people is approaching nearer as there is the great motherly Party which regards it as the greatest wish to realize all the long-cherished desires of the people and the loyal and great people who absolutely and single-mindedly trust in and follow the Party only.



Thanks for sharing 👍


Is the north korean economy growing? I heard someone say that their electricity consumption and demand is increasing which is a sign of economic growth (their gdp numbers are unreliable). Does anyone have source?


>Is the north korean economy growing?
Yes. But idk how much that means. isn't that what the economy is supposed to do? Isn't it usually more of a question of how fast?


They might be in a better place now that Russia and China are taking more of a piss on western sanctions


They are getting rich from selling ammo to Russia

When the DPRK finally goes to destroy the puppet ROK state would you join my internationale brigades, anons?
I am going to personally travel to ROK and set the blue house on fire with as many of them in side as possible.





I mean it would be nice, but I think many of us would be liabilities to our own side on the battlefield in am armed conflict.

Maybe the hate for capitalist degeneracy would be enough to tip the scales though.

South Korea has refused to stop the leaflet balloons and has again set up it's loudspeakers at the border to blair horrid k-pop. they shall all die by fire
North Korea leader's sister warns of new response against South Korean loudspeakers, leaflets
SEOUL, June 10 (Reuters) - The influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned of a new response against South Korea if the South continued with loudspeaker broadcasts and allowing leaflet balloon flights amid simmering tensions.
"If the ROK simultaneously carries out the leaflet scattering and loudspeaker broadcasting provocation over the border, it will undoubtedly witness the new counteraction of the DPRK," Kim Yo Jong said in a statement late on Sunday carried by state news agency KCNA, using the official names of South and North Korea.

South Korea restarts anti-North Korea loudspeaker broadcasts in retaliation for trash balloons

Agit-prop Activities Brisk at Construction Sites for Regional-industry Factories
Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) – A frontline-style information and motivation campaign is getting brisk at the construction sites for regional-industry factories in Kyongsong and Orang counties of the DPRK's North Hamgyong Province.
The provincial Party committee worked out an agitation plan to encourage the servicepersons involved in the construction project and has concentrated efforts and means on its implementation.
Artistes of the provincial art troupe have employed effective forms and methods of motivation work, while intensifying the collective discussion to truthfully represent the spiritual world of soldier-builders performing merits for the regional-industry revolution.
Members of mobile artistic motivation teams and women's union art squads in Kyongsong and Orang counties, too, revved up the atmosphere of construction sites through their art performances.
Encouraged by such agit-prop activities full of the revolutionary spirit and optimism, soldier-builders are speeding up the construction project.

Educational Level Improved in DPRK
Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) – Teacher-training universities and colleges in the DPRK direct big efforts to preparing students as reserve talents for education.

Hamhung Choe Hui Suk Teachers Training College and Wonsan Ri Su Dok Teachers Training College completed textbooks with more practical contents of the subject and pushed ahead with the work to introduce the research-type teaching method into major subjects in a stepwise way to improve the students' ability.
Officials and educators of other universities and colleges, too, have intensified the coordinated operation and cooperation research among faculties and departments.


Rodong Sinmun on WPK's People-first Politics
Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) – Rodong Sinmun Sunday in an article says that the people-first politics pursued by the Workers' Party of Korea is the most powerful political mode and the strongest treasured sword for further consolidating the might of our state as invincible and putting our people on the highest level of dignity and glory.
The people-first politics of the WPK is the one that sets it as an important requirement to train the working masses, the masters of politics and decisive force for realizing politics, into a powerful being and force, the article says, and goes on:
The Korean people are steadily hewing out civilization in the new era by the Korean-style working method and creative mettle with the traits and personality as befitting citizens of a powerful nation. This is unthinkable without the validity and vitality of the people-first politics.
The WPK's people-first politics is bringing about a steady rise in all fields of national development by arousing the people.
Our Party set a bold goal for comprehensive national rejuvenation under the hard and difficult conditions, with firm confidence in its victory. This is because it firmly believes in the inexhaustible loyalty, ardent patriotism and indomitable spiritual strength of the Korean people who absolutely support and carry out all the decisions and orders of the Party at the cost of their lives.
It is our Party’s theory that the people are a teacher of everything and relying on them is a key to settling any problems.
The WPK's people-first politics has steadily translated the development-oriented goals for the people's well-being into brilliant entities.
It is the noble intention of our Party that we should make everything socialist asset capable of representing the present era and being handed down to posterity, looking forward to 50 and 100 years.
Thanks to the WPK's politics of love and trust, admirable achievements and creations conducive to realizing the people's ideal have been made in the country one after another and the DPRK's advanced and modern characters are being improved day by day.
Just as the people are eternal, the vitality of the people-first politics is eternal, and just as the people's strength is inexhaustible, the might of the people-first politics is irresistible.

>Also over the weekend, South Korea vowed to blast "unbearable" noise at North Korea for the first time since 2018 after Pyongyang sent more sewage-filled balloons over the border.

>Seoul's national security council said on Sunday it will restart loudspeaker broadcasts of anti-North Korean propaganda.

Glad to see the capitalists finally admiting their propaganda is nothing but unbearable noise.


Where did this idea that k-pop was some kind of secret ant-communist juice come from?


it's the best cultural product SK can come up with lol


Boy bands are so blatant marketing products, so I guess they capture the capitalist spirit rather well

>Where did this idea that k-pop was some kind of secret ant-communist juice come from?
They are 100% constructed by large corperations so i guess it makes sense. These things do not even contain a seed of natural organization, the very members of the band are individually sculpted and chosen by the corporation.
So i guess it makes sense.

DPRK media put out a critique a few years ago which is quite interesting but i didn't find it yet: https://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2021/03/17/NorthKorea-Kpop-BTS-Blackpink-slaves-NorthKorea/7071615996856/

>Where did this idea that k-pop was some kind of secret ant-communist juice come from?
You just want to pick the most awful music possible for maximum effect when you're doing a psy-op.

>This is "music torture" - and while some of its practitioners say it shouldn't count as torture, there's little doubt it works.

>On Christmas Day, 1989, Panamanian strongman General Manuel Noriega - who died this week - became the most famous victim.

>The US army decided to use psychological warfare - by blasting a wall of sound non-stop outside. A fleet of Humvees mounted with loudspeakers rolled in, and rock music rolled out.

>The troops' playlist came care of the Southern Command Network, the US military radio in central America. It featured hits picked for their irony value, including I Fought The Law by The Clash, Panama by the stadium rock band Van Halen, U2's All I Want Is You, and Bruce Cockburn's If I Had A Rocket Launcher.

>There's an ambiguous undercurrent to the catchy pop smash that introduced a pig-tailed Britney Spears to the world in 1999 – so much so that Jive Records changed the song's title to "… Baby One More Time" after executives feared that it would be perceived as condoning domestic violence.

>It's a safe bet, however, that neither Britney nor songwriter Max Martin ever anticipated that this undercurrent would be picked up on by U.S. military personnel, when they were ordered to keep prisoners awake by blasting ear-splittingly loud music at them – for days, weeks or even months on end – at prisons in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantánamo Bay.

>When CIA operatives spoke to ABC News in November 2005, as part of a ground-breaking report into the use of waterboarding and other torture techniques on "high-value detainees" held in secret prisons, they reported that, when prisoners were forced to listen to Eminem's Slim Shady album, "The music was so foreign to them it made them frantic." And in May 2003, when the story first broke that music was being used by U.S. PsyOps teams in Iraq, Sgt. Mark Hadsell, whose favored songs were said to be "Bodies" by Drowning Pool and "Enter the Sandman" by Metallica, told Newsweek, "These people haven't heard heavy metal. They can't take it."

>Not every musician shared David Gray's revulsion. Bob Singleton, who wrote the theme tune to Barney the Purple Dinosaur, which has been used extensively in the "War on Terror," acknowledged in July that "if you blare the music loud enough for long enough, I guess it can become unbearable," but refused to accept that there were any circumstances under which playing music relentlessly at prisoners could be considered torture. "It's absolutely ludicrous," he wrote. "A song that was designed to make little children feel safe and loved was somehow going to threaten the mental state of adults and drive them to the emotional breaking point?"
