Nope, got stuck with a very broken social welfare program they had to bail out and a "superfund site" the size of Minnesota they had to clean up.

Pyongyang, December 27 (KCNA)-- Officials enjoyed "Concert Celebrating December Holiday" given by the State Merited Chorus at the Mansudae Art Theatre on Dec. 26 and 27.

Audience included senior state officials, the chairperson of a friendly party and officials of the party, working people's organizations and ministries and servicepersons of the Korean People's Army. Creators, artistes and journalists in the fields of culture, arts and media also enjoyed the concert.

Colorful performance included numbers like "Comrade Kim Jong Il Is Our Supreme Commander," "Forest Is Swaying" and "Where Are You, Dear General?".

The performers loudly sang of the undying feats of General Secretary Kim Jong Il who strengthened the Korean People's Army into strong revolutionary army, defending the dignity of Songun Korea and laying a solid foundation for the prosperity of the country.

The concert mesmerized the audience as it reflected the tremendous mental power and the revolutionary stamina of the army and people of the DPRK.

DPRK's Anniversaries Observed Abroad

Pyongyang, December 27 (KCNA)-- Meetings were held in Italy and Norway, a lecture in Sweden and round-table talks, photo exhibition and film show in Iran between Dec. 17 and 20 to mark the 19th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army and the 93rd birth anniversary of Kim Jong Suk, anti-Japanese war hero.

Displayed at the exhibition were photos on the Songun leadership exploits of Kim Jong Il.

The Korean film shown was "Reply of Korea."

Osvaldo Pesce, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Unified Communist Party of Italy, said that the politico-ideological position of the DPRK has been reinforced in every way and its military position has become as strong as an invulnerable fortress thanks to the Songun politics pursued by Kim Jong Il.

Svend Haakon Jacobsen, chairman of the Communist Party of Norway, said that the recent events held in the Korean Peninsula proved once again the invincibility of the Songun politics. And he praised the Songun leadership exploits of Kim Jong Il.

The immortal feats of Kim Jong Suk will always be remembered by the Korean and all other progressive people of the world, he added.

Eric Andersson, international secretary of the Communist Party of Sweden, said the DPRK would demonstrate its might as an invincible power under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il.

A message of greetings to Kim Jong Il was adopted at the meeting held in Norway.

On the scale of pros and cons I think the pros far outway the cons. N. Korea's infrustructure is not as bad as some may think. N. Korea is just disconnected from global trade. They are being isolationists which is not meeting the needs of the people of N. Korea. A unified Korean pennisula could only enhance the lives of the people of that region.

Oprah says that Kim Jong just has some issues from his childhood and doesn't know how to interrelate with others.....it's probably an insecurity complex because of his height.....
and, his son suffers from a lack of reconition and love from Kim Jong.....

She suggest Kim Jong and his son come on her show and talk to Dr. Phil.....

obama said to do whatever Oprah says......he's going to need her in 2012.....

Not to throw fire on a flame but that island is becomming very very overcrowed. Our way of dealing with population, was Nam, theres will be to. can't nuke one without killing the other.we should not be in the middle, again, and or still, as we are in Iraq, dying in the middle of others squabbles,that have lasted for almost 4000 years.

Either they unify or die.Taking us with them.

Trade has nothing to do with it, peoples will is what counts.
IAC no one said it wasn't POSSIBLE, just very UNLIKELY.
When the people of the North develop the will to get rid of their dictator and want to join the South, it'll happen, and not before.

Communism as a political and social system is not completely contrary to capitalism. China has keep its communist system while integrating into the gobal community. China could be an example as to how N. Korea can integrate without comprimising their social system.
