North Korea exposes life in the USA

The latest propaganda film to come out of North Korea talks about the harsh conditions people living in the United States have to deal with everyday. From sleeping in tents, to surviving on snow for nutrition. They even expose our love for pigeon cusine.

THE UNITED STATES is to deploy a THAAD missile defence battery to defend its bases on the Pacific island of Guam in response to recent heightened rhetoric from North Korea.
The announcement of the deployment has been followed by claims from the North Korean army that it has final approval for a nuclear attack on the United States.
In a statement, the US Department of Defense said that the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD) ballistic missile defence system would be deployed as a “precautionary move to strengthen our regional defence posture against the North Korean regional ballistic missile threat”.

The Uncle has fallen, pics at link.

North Korea images confirm removal of Kim Jong-Un's uncle Chang Song-thaek
BBC News - North Korea images confirm removal of Kim Jong-Un's uncle Chang Song-thaek

The BBC's Lucy Williamson said that Mr Chang has been removed from all his official posts

North Korea has broadcast images of the once powerful uncle of leader Kim Jong-un being removed from a meeting, confirming reports of his dismissal.

The dramatic images show Chang Song-thaek being escorted from a party session by uniformed guards.

The state news agency KCNA accused Mr Chang of forming factions against the state, corruption and "depraved" acts such as womanising and drug abuse.

Analysts say such a public dismissal is unique and could signal a wider purge.

It is the biggest upheaval in North Korea's leadership since Mr Kim succeeded his father two years ago. Seen as an economic reformer, he handled talks with Pyongyang's only major ally. China,

The KCNA state news agency said the decision was announced after a meeting of the ruling communist Korean Workers' Party Politburo over the weekend.

The images broadcast by KCNA also focus heavily on North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-un
News of his dismissal filtered out in South Korea last week along with reports that two of his close aides had been executed for corruption. It is unclear when these latest images date from.

'Dissolute' life
The KCNA report accuses Mr Chang of being part of a faction working against the North Korean state.

"Chang pretended to uphold the party and leader but was engrossed in such factional acts as dreaming different dreams and involving himself in double-dealing behind the scenes."

It accused him of offences such as financial mismanagement and selling off national resources for his personal gain, but it also denounced him for leading what it called "a dissolute and depraved life".

“Rare moments like these are perhaps the closest we'll come, at least for now, to observing directly the workings of the North Korean state..”

What does purge say about North Korea's stability?
"Ideologically sick and extremely idle and easy-going, he used drugs and squandered foreign currency at casinos while he was receiving medical treatment in a foreign country under the care of the party," the KCNA report said.

It added that he had "improper relations" with several women and "was wined and dined at back parlours of deluxe restaurants".

The BBC's Lucy Williamson in Seoul says such an official announcement detailing his alleged crimes is unique.

Almost overnight, Chang Song-thaek has morphed from uncle and mentor to North Korea's young leader, to "anti-revolutionary" criminal outcast, our correspondent reports.

She adds that this could be seen as the latest in a series of carefully calibrated moves to demonstrate Kim Jong-un's control, yet another sign of his authority and an assertion of his independence.

Mr Chang is reported to have been stripped of all his positions and expelled from the party.

Splicing out Chang Song-thaek
Images of Chang Song-thaek were removed from a documentary entitled The Great Comrade, which was rebroadcast over the weekend

On Saturday, North Korean state TV was also reported to have removed footage of Mr Chang from a documentary.

Past disappearance
Mr Chang had held senior posts in the ruling party and the National Defence Commission, the North's top military body.

He was seen as a key powerbroker at the time Kim Jong-un took over after Kim Jong-il died in 2011 - he is married to the elder Kim's sister.
'
He has often been pictured beside Kim Jong-un and was seen by some observers as the power behind the throne.

But despite his family ties to the leadership and senior status, he has been targeted in purges in the past.

In 2004, despite his place in the Kim family, he disappeared from public view.

One report at the time, citing South Korean intelligence, said Mr Chang had been placed under house arrest.

Others suggested he had been sent for "re-education". However, two years later he appeared to have been reinstated.
