Nice progress with the entrance building. Any idea what's up with the spire? Or just finishing top with some "4G" network antennas

In the far future the DPRK may be like the PRC. Currently it is unlikely for any war in the Koreas so don't think that south korea will take over, if there will be a war, the DPRK would win, because it is stronger and the PRC would help, south korea's u.s is far and it will take them long for the rienforcments (that is all common sence don't need to be a genius to figure that out.) And if there would be a war the Ryugyong Hotel can be blown up, or heavily damaged, so a war would be bad. You can currently get toures in the DPRK and see the Ryugyong Hotel.

a.) china wouldnt go to war aginst the US (which would go to war aginst NK) because it would lose huge amounts of trade and US military is much stronger.

b.) US has multiple supercarriers. 1 supercarrier would take little time to reach Korea, and 1 supercarrier is powerful enough to destroy NK.


how about from now on you stay on topic about this hotel rather than talk about nk going to war?

It's the internet services that are the issue at this point. All in good time.

This thread is not of politics allthough North Korea reputation worldwide is so bad that is imposible not to talk bad about a country thtat can not feed it´s citizens. That does not take place around the world. Even poor countries do not have the famine that takes place in North Korea. Also building this awsome building using public money that should be investing in other things is something to discuss.

What you can read here is just hilarious!
" a deadline for attaining the status of "a strong and prosperous nation." " - LOL
people there must eat GRASS to prevent dying from starvation! what a strong and prosperous nation!
I can't believe there can be such country in this part of the world. They shouldn't focus on building pointless buildings but on feeding people. South Korea is compared to that like heaven and hell. I think the US should do something about it since it's trying to act as a "global caretaker".
