The point is that it's easy and convenient to slag off somewhere like North Korea, but our countries (I am from the UK and I mean 'The West') are hardly paragons of virtue.

The essence of our society is exploitation and greed (capitalism) whilst most of the people killed in war in recent years have died in wars that were started by us (Iraq, Afghanistan).

It's funny to see the quality of the replies in this thread. Nobody has any information or pictures, so it all just end up with two guys arguing about politics...

Here is set of some fifty recently taken pictures of NK. In a few of the pictures you can see the tower and some of the buildings around it.

North Korea April, 2011

Even when this country opens to the world, people will be still speaking crap about it... nobody knows enough about this place so I ask for a moderator to close this thread and finish this meaningless arguments.

People in Pyongyang sadly neither know of the existence of digital cameras nor of the internetz.

What a pity, now having such a glittering glass rocket in the shining capital of the Dear Leader.

You need some education. Come back after you read up on Pyongyang, where cell phones digital cameras and computers actually do exist. The rest of the country.....maybe not.

Every culture needs a symbol. This building fits North Korea like the Eiffel Tower fits France.
