Citizens are so indoctrinated from birth that Kim Jong Il was in power is shown in a unique documentary of North Korea which shows life in a Communist country. The launch of the missile has universally been called a failure. In an effort to pretend that the failed missile launch never happened, the communist country unveiled huge statues of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-Il.
North Korea missile launch fails; Hotel of Doom still stands
North Korea caused international outrage when they fired off a test missile, but they also caused themselves embarrassment when the missile failed less than 1 minute into launch. In denial, the North Korean government still decided to hold missile parades to celebrate. Glenn reacts & talks about North Korea’s failed monument to communism — the Hotel of Doom.
“North Korea had a rocket launch that kind of failed spectacularly. Kind of makes me happy on that one. Just a little bit,” Glenn said upon hearing about the missile launch.
BBC reports that “The official reason for the launch had been to put a satellite into orbit in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the state’s founder, Kim Il-sung. North Korea fired the Unha-3 rocket around 07:40 local time (22:40 GMT Thursday) from a site in Cholsan County on the western coast, according to South Korean and US monitors. It disintegrated after a minute or two, falling into waters 165km (105 miles) west of the South Korean capital, Seoul, the monitors said.”
The launch has universally been called a failure.
But don’t worry, the UN is getting involved, going so far as to criticize North Korea for the launch and call it a violation. Pretty harsh, right?
In an effort to pretend this never happened, the communist country unveiled huge statues of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-Il.
