No, this building is a perfect analogy to communism in NK. A gigantic empty shell, poorly built over way too many decades, on the backs of starving Koreans. Cladded in gleaming glass to project prosperity and power to people on the outside, but ruined and unlivable on the inside.

I hope that the people of NK are given the chance to learn about the world beyond their borders someday. See the incredible skyscrapers all around the world and dream to one day also touch the sky.

The building looks great. I can't wait to see what they do with the base.

NK already touches the sky, with the hotel, and in capitalism they reach the sky with their off-the-chart curruption levels. You must be a capitalist i think. You defend your greed and curruption, its OK, its not my country.

No, they wouldn't hide it. North Korea likes the idea of having some kind of advantage.

If capitalism is so bad, Why is the U.S.A and European Union are the greatest countries in the world. If communism was so great the Soviet Union would still exist but it collapse because of the stupidity of the people that run it, communists. Its not an opinion, is a fact

Thats your opinion, get your facts right, learn the difference between fact and opinion. The usa and really??? Europe is not a country!!! maybe your thinking European Union. The European Union sucks, and so does the usa. The resion the USSR collapsed is because the spent too much on building weapons. China is a Communist nation and they are going strong, while the usa and eu are in a deep recesion. I know europe pretty well and i can tell that they are going down all the way to the ground and i know the usa well too, and they are going down too. If you think you can prove somthing by posting gay things, then just dont post at all, im not going to answer to you again.

What does any of this have to do with this building? Just for the record, China is more a socialist country now with its version of a free market economy. Using the term "gay" remarks is negative and offensive. The former Soviet Union did spend too much money on weapons, but it went broke trying to subsidize industries that were not profitable,keeping prices artifically low and producing products no one wanted. Russia today is as corrupt as any European country or any country as far as that goes. Now can we stop this pissing contest and get back on topic.
