Thanks for the link, Aidan. This video is almost like a parody from the Stephen Colbert show.  I wonder if some of the North Koreans who put it together had their tongues in their cheeks!  Don't they realize that those of us who don't have the privilege of living in the paradise that is the DPRK will find this entire video more amusing than inspiring?
