Axis of sheeple

While "hundreds of thousands" have reportedly taken to the streets in Iran — risking violent retribution and death — to express their anger over what may well be a rigged election, "tens of thousands" have (with government permission, of course) taken to the streets "to condemn the UN rebuke of [North Korea's] latest nuclear test."

[above: Monday's rally in Pyongyang's Kim Il-sung Square. The banner behind these men reads, "Good posture will defeat American imperialism! Make your back as straight as a Taepodong Missile, Comrades!"]


  1. I wonder how many non-Korean speakers will believe your translation.

  2. I think the record will show that, as a general rule, nobody should believe anything in my photo captions.
