SEOUL, South Korea — Punching their fists into the air and shouting "Let's crush them!" some 100,000 North Koreans packed Pyongyang's main square Thursday for an anti-U.S. rally...Then they shouted "Long Live Our Dear Leader!", followed by "Applause!"
Spontaneous mass hate is a lot less impressive when it's happening someplace you couldn't take a spontaneous dump without filling out forms in triplicate, and there's a guy in every office and factory floor chanting "Inhale!... Exhale!..."
North Korean troops will respond to any sanctions or U.S. provocations with "an annihilating blow," one senior official vowed.Of course, over the past fifty years, North Korea has threatened "annihilating blows" over such things as changes in the weather and the movie Team America, but their tantrums were paid less attention, but they tend to get more attention when they start playing with the big bottle rockets.
