North Korea's "Big And Important Event" - A Street Opening!

Tyler Durden's picture

Amid social media chatter of Pyongyang evacuations, North Korea told foreign journalists to prepare for a "big  and important event" on Thursday (ahead of The Day of The Sun) - conjuring images of nuclear missile tests or Supreme-leader-led military drills. However, the "big and important event" turned out to be... a street opening!

After much secrecy, Beijing Correspondent for Channel News Asia Jeremy Koh reports that foreign reporters in Pyongyang watch Kim Jong Un preside over opening of the skyscraper-lined Ryomyong street...

In fact, as Reuters noted, North Korea often uses such visits to showcase new construction projects.

In recent weeks workers have been putting the finishing touches to the skyscraper-lined "Ryomyong" street in central Pyongyang.

Kim has made frequent visits to the street to inspect construction work there, according to state media. North Korea has in the past marked its April 15 holiday with tightly choreographed military parades.

Is Kim lulling America into a false sense of security?

Or are the skyscrapers a clever ruse to hide ICBM launchpads in clear sight?

Pretty clever if that's what the skyscrapers are for.

I can imagine sitting on the crapper while they launch some missiles from the silo beneath the apartment building and asking myself whether those super hot buffalo chicken wings were worth it.

So, like everything else, the scaremongering of a nuke test was propaganda. 

Our "intelligence" agencies didn't know they were preparing to celebrate a new street, like the ratings agencies didn't know Lehman was about to crash. 

All the world has gone madd, swooned to war by Bankers

Bomb his ass anyway!

Who does he think he is painting buildings like He's in Miami? Like Oh sure!, He's in Miami!

Maybe there's a nuke in a tunnel under that new road.

Just don't, by any means, use one of those barrel bombs!

It was an incredible sight for many of the citizenry to behold as they had never seen tarvia before

Has anything useful ever come out of a skyscraper?

I've always suspected that best Korea was not the shithole our media made it out to be.
Now it turns out they're full on masters of the troll. The entire world was watching their "big announcement" - 7.5Billion people get to watch the opening of a street.

When was the last time a Western country built a new street, let alone one lined with gorgeous buildings like those?

I suggest you go on over to Pyonyang and see for yourself whether or not it's a shithole.

go there but be warned: you won't find obese face-tattoed snowflakes protesting for diversity paid by Soros.

... and Kim declared all his loyal troops would only march to the left ... because, apparently, they have no rights ... ;)

There's never been a better technology to launch a bankster.

They can be pretty useful if they fall down and you need a reason to start a dozen wars...

Soooo....if I want to get to there from here.....I can just cross the street.


Pretty cool!

A new street in a communist dictatorship is a very important event!  

And look at all the smiling faces! They look very happy and content in their servitude!

They would be much happier if they were filming a Pepsi commercial, I am sure.

LMAO! the one they shot in Thailand with the cheap labor and "American looking cops" that the snowflakes went batshit crazy over for all the wrong reasons?

They are precious, absolutely precious  ;-)

Sure looks oppressive!! Better spend 10T to civilize these savages ...

Relax, the Chi-Com's will do it.

That's right, you heard it here first  ;-)

North Korea successfully trolling the Empire = priceless!

NK: Brother Nr. 1 with adipositas, level 1, rest with severe - light underweight. US: Brother Nr. 1 with overweight, rest with adipositas level 1-3.

Both with a totally run-down and corrupt media apparatus.

I wonder how the construction quality is.

Kim is LOLing America into a frenzied state of paranoia.

Amazing.  An entire nation conned into believing their leader is a beneficent godlike figure, instead of the skeevy shitbag he is.

Hillary only managed 50%.  She must be green with envy.

Agreed, but he did say he would build a wall and MAGA!

Well done Pliskin - made me laugh!

Bernie would have been a good "beneficent figure" too - he would have given us everything for free.

Probably pretty good, given that everyone knows what will happen to anyone found responsible for things going wrong.

All of that was built in little over a year. I have my doubts. Mega projects like that take a few years.

floosy's picture

Only if you have things like government bureaucracy, workers unions and health and safety in the way.


If you just let people who know how to get on and build stuff they can actually do it quite quickly and quite well.

The future Mar-a-Lago or something? Future Trump brothel?

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

Wait, wasn't World War 3 suppose to start today?  Isn't that that everyone buying VIX products was betting on ?  ;)

It's gotten close. Very close.

Pretty nice buildings.  I had no idea those guys could build something so nice.

Yeah, i was expecting a more "soviet" look, too.

Maybe we can trade with them? Or spend 10T bringing them civility? hmmm

Kim Jong Un is just trolling all of us right now. He still has nukes, but he's trolling us.
