  • People in North Korea do what they have to do to try and avoid the concentration camps and stay alive.

    Exactly, the idea that the people of North Korea are evil or insane is repugnant.
    They are poor and repressed.




  • Is Neil Young ill?

    As someone mentioned above,paler skin is seen as more attractive in Korea.They even sell whitening skin cream,it's the opposite of fake tan.

    Buy her Flowers. She’ll be Grand ! !




  • He's the last of the old schoolers, world would be a much dimmer place without him, ever the entertainer he even fired off a few missiles during the lockdown to keep folk entertained.

    He is always good for a laugh and feeds his dogs with relatives ( not the dogs relatives ). So an Animal Lover.

    Gee!

    They also enable the regime to stay in power. The military is made up of common people. Soldiers/Police aren't a different species with superpowers to keep everyone oppressed.

    However, agreed. the idea that the people of North Korea are evil or insane is repugnant. They're simply misguided/conditioned in what they allow to exist. Too many people dismiss the effects of social conditioning and insidious propaganda, since they've never been exposed to it, or seen it's effects first hand.

  • He's either dead or really sick because surely he would have headed a parade or oversaw a missile launch by now to prove he wasnt.

    Across a lot of Asia, actually. I've often been amused to see the young fellas in China walking with their girls, holding an umbrella to keep her from tanning. India and Japan have similar beauty standards, and I expect a lot of the rest of the region too.

    Yes in many parts of China they are horrified if the see an Irish person(especially a woman) sunbathing because we ruining such attractive pale skin!




  • Kim Jong Un is a paranoid hermit at the best of times, its a bit of a coincidence that he has vanished from public view slap bang in the middle of a pandemic. His private train has been photographed from space in his holiday resort in Wonsan which is a tad convenient. Throw in the fact the south koreans have stated with confidence that Kim is alive and well. You can be sure if anyone is tracking Kim's whereabouts it'll be the South koreans.

    Kim is a coward and has gone to ground to save his skin. I wouldnt believe this story that he's on his deathbed, indeed Id say the whole notion he had a surgery at all was just a cover to excuse his absence from his birthday celebrations which went unmarked this year. Also remember North korea will be exceptionally vulnerable to any pandemic given most of their population is malnourished and the poor state of their healthcare system.




  • North Korea has basic medical services. It gets many items from China. Smartphones. Movies
    Music on a USB Drive are smuggled in. Covid
    19 must be there too. Either he is recovering from
    Surgery or. He.s hiding away in fear of getting
    the virus. if the virus spreads there who will help
    Them. North Korea is the one remaining real communist state. China is a booming rich country which happens to be ruled by the communist party




  • Looks like he rose again...
    Satellite images showing the recent movements of luxury boats suggest Kim Jong Un is in the coastal resort of Wonsan, according to experts who monitor his secretive regime.

    Photographs of vessels used by the North Korean leader and his entourage have emerged amid speculation about his health and whereabouts.

    Know a super pale Irish girl, 15 year ago got the trans siberian express across russia to the ass end of China, when she got to China she was followed by people ,women cam up to her to stare , many wanted to touch her pale face , she was freaked out until she got to hotel and receptionist spoke english, told her that her pale white skin was the peak of female beauty, the locals where in awe.
    In Ireland the girls are covered in fake tan, the grass is always greener!

    "Peasants" work the fields, and so they have brown/tanned skin from being out in the sun. Having white skin carries the association of having better genes, and a greater potential for a better marriage. It's a common theme across China, Korea, and Japan. Less so, in other Asian countries like Vietnam or Cambodia (although a very minor element of it is there too).

    Do Irish guys actually prefer umpa lumpas to pale skin?




  • Do Irish guys actually prefer umpa lumpas to pale skin?

    I suspect it's more down to lack of choice... Take what you can get. Don't really know though. :D




  • Do Irish guys actually prefer umpa lumpas to pale skin?

    Darker skin makes someone look thiner. A woman not carrying excessive weight an pale is more attractive than same girl caked in tan.




  • Do Irish guys actually prefer umpa lumpas to pale skin?

    No, fact is Ireland is a island ,the irish girls had no competition, EU opened borders, we got a influx of european girls, they for most part take better care of themselves than irish girls.
    Irish dont tan we burn, irish girls see tan on euro women and think its what is attracting the irish men, so irish girls slap on the fake tan.
    Unfortunately it looks cat and drives even more irish mien into arms of euro women




  • Do Irish guys actually prefer umpa lumpas to pale skin?

    No, but it seems like some girls try to out do other girls

    I'd argue that with each succession the rule of the Kims has become weaker. Kim Il Sung enjoyed a stature that his successors did not, as evidenced by their desperate association of their cult of personality with his. Kim Jong Il's Songun "military-first" policies indicated that he had to make significant concessions to the Generals to stay in power in a way that his father did not. Since 1994 the country has severely declined, both in absolute terms and relative to its neighbours in SK and China, and the North Korean elite must be well aware of this regardless of what slogans they have to parrot.

    A collapse of North Korea would have serious potential for disaster - loose nukes, rogue factions, millions of refugees, China and SK/US banging heads over the power vacuum.

    A more gradual liberalisation through some form of slightly less insane authoritarian regime seems possible. There are plenty of examples of this in Asia (China since Mao, SK since Rhee and the generals, Burma more recently).

    The Chinese aren't mad about the Kims either, for good reasons historic and current. Maintaining a buffer on their Yalu border is a red line issue for them, but if a more stable guarantor of that buffer than the Kims were to emerge they'd be happy out.

    If NK collapses i reckon the chinese will be looking for some lebensraum.

    I think the coronavirus gave them that already.

    Recent oblique statements from Trump may indicate the he could very well be dead.
