Mea maxima culpa. All I can say in self-defence is that -- as Sturgis has already pointed out -- Google was presenting the AP story as breaking news.


What difference does that make? How can you not have known he was already dead?


I was careless about noticing the name. Thought they were referring to Kim Jong Un.

@tsarstepan,
He wasn't an anime director he was the president of North Korea. Not only that, there has been loads of coverage about his successor, not just the Onion report, but whether or not missile tests are proof of him taking a harder line/same line than his dad, or whether or not he's being manipulated by shadowy powers. There's also been loads of stuff about his marriage.

I'm amazed that anyone who watches the news could be completely unaware of all this.

You thought Kim Jong Un was 69?

@tsarstepan,
The footage was uploaded on Saturday by the North's official website, Uriminzokkiri, which distributes news and propaganda from the state media.

The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested last December.

As the shuttle circles the globe - to the tune of "We Are the World" - the video zooms in on countries below, including a joyfully re-unified Korea.

The focus then switches to a city - shrouded in the US flag - under apparent missile attack with its skyscrapers, including what appears to be the Empire State Building, either on fire or in ruins.


"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," runs the caption across the screen.

"It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself," it added.

The video ends with the young man concluding that his dream will "surely come true".

"Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us ... never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory," it said.

The North is expected to conduct its nuclear test as a defiant response to UN sanctions imposed after its December rocket launch.

We all have 'oops' moments.

spoken like a true American...."ok, so i guess I dont know where China is....ooops, dont hate me!"

btw, i pointed out embarrassing ignorance, not bad manors.


Hey dumbfuck, you misspelled manners. Just pointing that out. Embarrassed

@blueveinedthrobber,
Go easy, Bear. Maybe dumbfuck meant "manors" (for whatever reason). After all, there is such a word.

[Btw, thnx for quoting his post; I have the idiot on 'ignore' and wouldn't have seen it otherwise.]
