I’ve seen a lot of disgusting things in my years on the internet, but this video takes the cake.
Lately some strange radio broadcasts have been coming from North Korea, according to the South Korean government.
North Korea has been laying the groundwork for a massive cyber attack against South Korea, government officials from South Korea told Reuters.
Information about anything inside North Korea is hard to come by, but Pyongyang’s metro system is particularly secretive. Access to foreigners has historically been secretive, but one photographer recently made it in, rode the entire system, and has the photos to prove it.
North Korea’s Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications has officially announced that it’s now blocking Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and South Korean websites.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a series of leaflets criticizing the leader of North Korea being sent into the country via helium balloon!
North Korea isn’t happy. According to Reuters, Kim Jong Un has told the country’s military to assume “pre-emptive attack” mode and be prepared to use its nuclear weapons at any time.
South Korea has announced that its nearest neighbour in the North has fired six short-range missiles into the sea, just hours after tight UN sanctions had been imposed upon the country.
There’s no greater celebration of your country’s majesty than putting its achievements on a postage stamp. Throughout the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union both loved to put their space accomplishments on stamps. But with our New Cold War™, it’s North Korea’s turn.
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced today that the Doomsday Clock, which represents our proximity to an apocalyptic event, will remain at three minutes to midnight. But that’s still terrifying.
Late last night, North Korea said it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, triggering a mini, human-made earthquake near the test site and causing the UN Security Council to call an emergency meeting. Hydrogen bombs are even more destructive than atomic bombs, so it’s very scary—but experts think North Korea’s bluffing…
The US Geological Survey has noted seismic activity—a magnitude 5.1 earthquake—near a known North Korean nuclear test center. The last time this happened, it was thanks to the underground detonation of a nuclear device.
I look to my left and see a sorrowful parent sitting on the curb, comforting his daughter. I look to my right, and I see notes of sympathy among many flowers. Around me, I hear people murmuring respects and singing in French. I’m in the middle of a vigil in the streets of Paris, a week after last month’s tragic…
East Asia’s secluded dictatorship says it’s got the technology to make monstrously destructive hydrogen bombs. Fat chance, say some defense experts.
I went to Pyongyang today: I stayed in an immaculate North Korean hotel room, watched as the country’s ballistic missiles paraded past me, and saw thousands of followers wave flags and flowers in honor of their leader.
The same isolated, dictatorial nation that’s currently expanding its nuclear test sites also wants to attract more foreign tourists. But visitors are subject to a ridiculous battery of tech-combing security inspections–including a very fine-grained look at your internet habits.
Back in August reports coming out of North Korea claimed that their new airport terminal had an “internet room” which, contrary to its name, didn’t have any actual connection to the internet. But that seems to have changed.
North Korea has recently made an effort to boost tourism in the authoritarian country. One tactic is the opening of a shiny new airport terminal, complete with modern amenities like an “internet room.” The only problem? The internet room doesn’t seem to have any internet.
