imperialist warmongers

Although North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is supposedly a big fan of American pop culture, his celebrity crushes no longer include Seth Rogen and James Franco. The country has threatened to inflict a "merciless countermeasure" on the United States if they don't ban upcoming comedy The Interview, in which the actors play characters who become entangled in a plot to assassinate the North Korean leader (Randall Park). "The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership... is a most wanton act of terror and act of war," said a spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry.

North Korea Sets April 10th Deadline

North Korea has warned foreign embassies in Pyongyang that it cannot guarantee their safety from the threat of conflict after 10 April, and has advised them to consider pulling their staff out of the capital. This follows North Korea blocking South Korean Workers from the Kaesong industrial complex - a sign that this might be more material than the usual posturing, warning that a 'moment of explosion' is nearing and moving missiles with "considerable range" to its east coast. Though the US is playing down the threat and the UK and Russia have no plans of moving their diplomats the possibility of an accident or miscalculation leading to war looms. North Korea has earned the reprobation of Russia and Fidel Castro in recent days and even longtime supporter China is beginning to lose patience with it - something some say is not before time.

Rebranding The War.

First it was called The War on Terror. Then it was called the Global War on Terror. It was even, at one stage, called The Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism. Basically, it has had many names. But now President Bush is simply calling it World War III.

U.S. Gov't: IF communists attack THEN GOTO communism:

U.S. Gov't: IF communists attack THEN GOTO communism: The plans that the federal government had developed for salvaging the state in the event of a nuclear attack on the United States by the Soviet Union would have added mass starvation and social extinction to the mass devastation of nuclear war by imposing martial law and a federal dictatorship running the country from the top down.
