One aspect of the DPRK under Kim Jong Un that is becoming increasingly apparent is a rather nasty and direct tone. No one has ever accused the DPRK of being terribly diplomatic in its propaganda with epithets such as "human scum" and "reptile historians" abounding in the KCNA reports. However, this seems rather tame to the banner that presently sits atop the KCNA website: "Let us cut off the windpipes of the Lee Myung Bak-led swarm of rats" In addition, the KCNA has helpfully included eight cartoons with a common theme. An example:
Add to this another KCNA declaration that singled out not only Lee Myunng-bak but also South Korean media outlets such as the Dong-a Ilbo and promised:
Once the above-said special actions kick off, they will reduce all the rat-like groups and the bases for provocations to ashes in three or four minutes, in much shorter time, by unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style.
The sum total is somewhat troubling.
