We’ve all heard some of the ridiculous claims that North Korean state media makes in order to prop up their deceitful, manipulative, and psychopathic leader. They want to brainwash the masses into thinking that Kim Jong Un is practically a god, and this most recent media claim proves just that.
According to North Korean state media, little mini-man Kim Jong Un managed to climb a 8,300 foot mountain without even breaking a sweat. He also supposedly didn’t even scuff his dress shoes, as they were reported to be completely spotless—how desperate is their media to praise him that they make up these lies?
Julian Robinson of Daily Mail reports:
He is the chubby dictator who ‘learnt to drive at the age of three’ and once bragged of scoring 11 holes in one on his first round of golf.
Pyongyang media said the 33-year-old had managed to scale Mount Paektu – a sacred spot for North Koreans – after walking ‘through thick snow’ to reach the summit.
But pictures show Kim wandering around on the snow-capped mountain with hardly a bead of sweat and wearing spotless and shiny shoes.
Rodong Sinmun reported how Kim’s ‘eyes reflected the strong beams of the gifted great person seeing in the majestic spirit of Mount Paektu the appearance of a powerful socialist nation which dynamically advances full of vigour without vacillation at any raving dirty wind on the planet.’
Mount Paektu has been decreed as the ‘sacred’ birthplace of the secretive state’s first dictator, Kim’s grandfather.
Pictures released by the regime show Kim in the snowon North Korea‘s border with China, which the regime rewrote history to claim was birthplace of Kim Il-Sung, the Communist who ruled from after the Second World War until 1994.
He was in fact born in the Soviet Union, but the mountain, has long been integral to the country’s identity.
t is reputedly the birthplace of the earliest Korean leader ever recorded, Dangun, who according to legend founded the early kingdom of Gojoseon in 2333BC.
The mountain is believed to be the site of the deadliest volcano eruption in history and there are fears it may erupt again as a result of North Korea’s nuclear weapons testing.
A thousand years ago it exploded so violently that ash fell as far away as northern Japan.
Last month Bruce Bennett, a senior defence analyst at the Rand Corporation, warned one of the nuclear weapon tests carried out by North Korea could have a catastrophic effect.
North Korea, formally called the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), last week tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile, saying the device could reach all of the United States.
Two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers joined large-scale combat drills over South Korea on Thursday amid warnings from North Korea that the exercises and U.S. threats have made the outbreak of war ‘an established fact.’
The annual U.S.-South Korean ‘Vigilant Ace’ exercises feature 230 aircraft, including some of the most advanced U.S. stealth warplanes.
North Korea’s foreign ministry blamed the drills and ‘confrontational warmongering’ by U.S. officials for making war inevitable.
U.S. national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was ‘increasing every day.’
He said Trump was prepared to take action against North Korea but was working to convince China, Russia and others to do more to press Pyongyang to get it to give up its weapons programs.
U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham urged the Pentagon on Sunday to start moving U.S. military dependants out of South Korea, saying conflict with North Korea was getting close.
The Pentagon said it has ‘no intent’ to move out any dependants.
Joseph Yun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy, will travel to Japan and Thailand next week to meet government officials ‘to discuss ways to strengthen the pressure campaign following the DPRK latest ballistic missile test,’ the State Department.
‘The United States looks forward to continuing its partnership with both these nations so that the DPRK will return to credible talks on denuclearization,’ it added.
But Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he believes the chances of dialogue to resolve the tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program are low.
Lavrov was speaking Friday while attending an OSCE ministerial summit in Vienna.
He said ‘the North Koreans have told us more than once that they need security guarantees, especially in the situation when Washington is trying to withdraw from the agreements on the Iranian nuclear programme’.
