Thanks for the red nightmare ovem! Now you have probably given NK an idea and Orascom will start applying red tint to all the windows...

I prefer the blue. Even if red would be very ugly, it would look cool as hell

It's a beautiful building.

I have two North Korean friends, Indonesia being one of the few countries in the world that has normal diplomatic and trading relations with North Korea. I've learned a lot from them about the DPRK. The first is that a North Korean is never supposed to be isolated from other North Koreans. Wherever there is one, another should be there as well to spy on them or vice versa. It sounds strange, but similar practices were in place in China through the Cultural Revolution and up until the 1970s. The second is that while they are very proud of their country and its leaders (and they truly hate South Korea), if they were given the choice between staying here in Indonesia, which is itself a third world country, or going back to North Korea, they would choose Indonesia in a heartbeat. They're not given that choice, however, and if they leave the apparatus of the DPRK's operations their families would suffer as a result.

Maybe some people don't know what the Hammer and sickle mean, nor do they have any interest in what CCCP would mean...

Why is your name is Eurovision while you love to go back to the days of the USSR though?
