Will not have these lies about Best Korea spread on here: http://www.nknews.org/2014/03/why-kim-jong-un-hairstyle-order-is-unlikely-true/

OFFICIAL NEWS ONLY: : http://www.kcna.co.jp/item/2014/201403/news25/20140325-10ee.html
Quote
Pyongyang, March 25 (KCNA) -- Ro Kil Nam, representative of Minjok Thongsin, internet paper of Koreans in the U.S., contributed an article titled "Supreme leader Kim Jong Un's love touches compatriots in the north" to the paper.

The article said that the story about Kim Jong Un's love touches everybody.

It went on:

There are so many legendary stories about his love for people and all-embracing politics. To cite just an example, he let a pupil who was exemplary in study and in the Children's Union organizational life take part in the event for celebrating the 66th anniversary of the founding of the Korean Children's Union without any discrimination though the pupil's father had committed a crime against the country.

The stories about his love are gripping the hearts of the compatriots in the north.

That is why all compatriots in the north are expressing profound reverence for their leader.

The DPRK is the only country in the world where the people hold their leader in high esteem.

I could notice such intense loyalty in everybody I met.

This made me keenly realize what sheer lies the U.S. and its supporters are spreading while kicking up smear campaign.

The DPRK respects its sovereignty, projects the popular masses as the leading players of history and lays emphasis on their independence, creativity and conscience.

No guys are so ignorant as describing such society in which all people lead life worthy of man as masters as "society with poor human rights record."

Society in the north is an ideal one desired by mankind.

That's true. There are some in short supply in the north. But in a word, one may say it is sound in all aspects including politics, military, cutting-edge science, music and arts, education and social culture.

The service personnel and people single-mindedly united around their leader move in perfect order.

The leader pursues the politics of believing in people as in Heaven while the service personnel and people hold him in high esteem.

The service personnel and people loudly sing songs "We Know Nobody but You", "Ardent Desire", etc. that reverberate far and wide in the north.

Those songs reflect the warm hearts of the service personnel and people in the north for the leader.

The foundations remain strong and the prospect rosy in all fabrics of society in the DPRK where the Songun politics is in force. Therefore, the DPRK has bright and rosy future.

http://www.nationaljournal.com/white-house/how-putin-bullies-obama-20140326

Quote
On a playground or in a bar, the most important thing to know about a bully is his motivation. What ticks him off? Who's his next victim? If it's you, how do you avoid a butt-kicking?

On the world stage, Vladimir Putin is a bully—and President Obama not only seems clueless about the Russian leader's inner drive, he embraces his ambivalence. "I'm less interested in motivation," Obama said Monday in The Hague, "and more interested in the facts and the principles that not only the United States but the entire international community are looking to uphold."

Taken at face value, it's a disturbing response from a world leader who should lie awake at night concerned about the motivation of U.S. adversaries, whose first meeting of every day involves an intelligence briefing on the motivations of global actors.

It could be that Obama is playing mind games with Putin, looking into the soul that transfixed President Bush 13 years ago and seeing a man whose greatest weakness is parochial hubris. Want to hurt Putin? Say you don't care about him. In a verbal equivalent of a groin punch, Obama might dismiss Russia as a "regional power" that antagonizes its neighbors "out of weakness."

But it's hard to credit Obama with such savvy calculation. I take him at his word: He doesn't care.

...

"So I think that will be a bad choice for President Putin to make," Obama said, "but, ultimately, he is the president of Russia, and he's the one who's going to be making that decision. He just has to understand there's a choice to be made here."

In other words, the bully has stolen your lunch money without a fight and now you're telling him, "It would be a bad choice to take one more penny from anybody in this lunchroom, Buster!"

...

And the world notices. So when Obama tells the world that "Russia is acting out of weakness," he risks sounding like the guy who gets beat up in a bar then brags about the bully's bloody knuckles.

Forgot to include the quotes:
Quote
In the interview on the set of a movie he is shooting in Romania, Seagal said President Vladimir Putin's "desire to protect the Russian-speaking people of Crimea, his assets, and the Russian Black Sea military base in Sevastopol … is very reasonable."

Criticizing the "idiotic" U.S. policy on Ukraine, Seagal said the American media coverage of the crisis was promoting the agenda of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Seagal, a Republican who is thought to be a relatively close acquaintance of Putin partly due to their shared love of martial arts, said that Putin is "one of the great living world leaders" and that he "would like to consider him as a brother.

...

Rossiskaya Gazeta pumped up the actor's political prowess by mentioning that fellow actors like former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former U.S. President Ronald Reagan have played major roles in  politics and saying that Seagal is "no less popular or authoritative in the world today."

...

Seagal also said that although he loves the United States, it is possible — "sometime" — that he will follow the lead of French movie star Gerard Depardieu and take Russian citizenship.

Iraqi people are shaking their heads when they know that people in the west have sex before marriage and that gay people are getting married. They think that the west is morally corrupt. Different perspective.

I don't think that the Iraqi people have ever forced their social norms on the west.

Personally, I don't care whatever they want to do with themselves. It's their families, their people, their women, their parliament and their social norms. They know what's right and wrong from their own perspective, just like you think you know the right and wrong.

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/vladimir-putin-wants-regain-finland-says-close-adviser-1442466

Quote
One of Russian President Vladimir Putin's closest ex-advisers has claimed that the ex-KGB agent ultimately wants to reclaim Finland for Russia.

Andrej Illiaronov, Putin's economic adviser between 2000 and 2005 and now senior member of the Cato Institute think tank, said that "parts of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States and Finland are states where Putin claims to have ownership."

"Putin's view is that he protects what belongs to him and his predecessors," he said.

When asked if Putin wishes to return to the Russia of the last tsar, Nicholas II, Illiaronov said: "Yes, if it becomes possible."

Illiaronov admits that Finland is not Putin's primary concern at present but, if not stopped in other areas of Eastern Europe, the issue will one day arise. Russian troops are currently massing on the eastern border of Ukraine, following Russia's recent annexation of Crimea.

"Putin said several times that the Bolsheviks and Communists made big mistakes. He could well say that the Bolsheviks in 1917 committed treason against Russian national interests by providing Finland's independence," Illiaronov told a Swedish news website.

He believes that Putin is not planning to invade Ukraine for territorial gain but rather "the goal is a pro-Russian puppet government in Kiev."

"Six years ago Putin conquered Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Georgia. The west let him do it with impunity, and now he has got Crimea," he continued.

"Now, eastern and southern Ukraine is destablised so that the self-defence forces can take power there. If the situation allows, it may be a military invasion."
