60 years ago North Korea won the war.
This event is celebrated this year.
Some 4 million people died many of them civilians.
Maybe it was more than 4 million, nobody knows exactly.
The capital city Pyongyang was totally leveled to the ground.
The country lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s.

In the tunnels of Sinchon, the US troops massacred thousands of civilians during the war.
The number of civilians killed there over the 52-day period was allegedly over 35.000 people.
The Northern part of the Peninsula of Korea was paved by the U.S. with many more bombs as during the entire World War II bombs were dropped on Europe.
Compared the small land area of North Korea with Europe, the country was literally plowed and bombed to Stone Age.
As harsh sanctions were then imposed by the US onto North Korea, it was prevented reconstruction.
In addition, the agriculture of the country was destroyed with biological attacks (as in Cuba).

Pyongyang before the war
Since then, for more than half a century, North Korea has remained in the cross-hairs of a US program of military intimidation, economic warfare, increased sanctions, diplomatic isolation and ideological assault, targeted for regime change for rejecting participation in a US-superintended global capitalist order.
For decades North Koreans were being portrayed as inhabitants of some monstrous hermit empire where everything would be dull, grey, outdated and cold, men, women and children all look alike, dress the same, behave like robots, never smile and do not look into each other's eyes.
Of course, it was after all the effects of war a certain standstill.
What was told us about North Korea, were there ANY positive news, and what do we actually know about the country and the people there ?
It is time to put this picture in the light it deserves.
See for yourself how it looks.......................
It is their common tactic.
They portray people of China, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, The Iran, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan or i.e. Serbia as heartless, as if they were some plastic androids.
Then, subconsciously, compassion for the people of those nations vanishes from the hearts of the Western public.
Suddenly it is fine to starve them, to bomb them, to murder thousands, even millions of those androids.
But once the faces are shown, the Western public gets confused; many refuse to support mass murder.
'Enter Pyongyang' is an amazing video that gives us an insight to the unknown country.
The makers JT Singh and Rob Whitworth have with the latest technology, including time lapse, flowmotion and acceleration presented a modern panorama of the North Korean capital, no one knows.
So are some of the stereotypes and misconceptions eliminated, because it was done a lot in North Korea.
It was a cell phone network built, there will come more and more tourists to the country, special economic zones were created in cooperation with China, Russia and South Korea.
It will also be connected the above-mentioned countries with a new railway.

In the last few years, much changed to the positive.

It is common practice for the Ladies just as here to go to the hairdresser
We know, every country which not unconditionally submits the US imperialism and the financial mafia, shall be punished, represented as evil and only reported bad things.
A defense preparedness and protection from negative foreign influence is described as a hostile threat.
The West is a great in the creation of enemy images and, in lack of wisdom, its recent policy is reduced to boycotts, provocations and saber ratting !
'Enter Pyongyang' is an invitation to explore the country and to correct preconceived opinion, instilled prejudice by the Western propaganda apparatus.
There are only few places in the world, which were hermetically sealed, such as North Korea, but for some time the country has opened and you can travel as a Tourist.
An opportunity for an eye-opener can be such a visit and perhaps will accrue the sudden knowledge of how wrong and one-sided we in the West are informed.

If you are soon asked, 'where were you last summer?', maybe you can say, 'I was skiing in North Korea !'

With no word I defend the situation in North Korea.
Nor the government.
A 'prosperous Empire' I've never mentioned in my article.
But I show that it is different than what is told us and it would be worth a trip by every one to make an independent picture.
I wish the people would with some zeal clean up the own mess in their country, because in their own country, there are enough lies, propaganda, war-mongering, corruption, spying, oppression, poverty, and bad things that should be treated.
Are the Bush no family of dictators ?
The third Bush is ready for 2016.
The population in the US is not completely brainwashed ?
