They already did it with one type of flower used in his funeral (Kimjongilia)...wouldn't surprise me if they did the same with this "hotel".

Do you think they will put his body in there like that of his fathers in the Kumsusan Memorial Palace?

Well someone speculated that this was going to become Kim's mausoleum; I don't know how much truth there is to that, but the tower certainly won't just be a hotel any more in that case.

I had no idea Pyongyang was undergoing such heavy development! They're in such a bad position in the economy, I mean, where is the funding for all these buildings?

not true.

NK is one of poorest nations on the planet and the majority of its income
goes towards retaining a standing army. ( NK thinks its still at war )

The majority of the people out side capital are in camps or eat grass to live.
( been filmed )
The capital city is reserved for the counties elite only.

The nation is about bankrupt. http://themoscownews.com/internation...189311687.html Russia news. "A bankrupt war machine"
Economy of the South Korea is at least at $1.5 trillion.

The tower has been built to attract tourism and any extra cash.

Bright lights of South. No electric in the north.
They may not be able to afford to turn tower lighting on for long durations.

Very good point, jersyboi. Photos MUST be credited on SSC or they will be pulled down.
Ernolibus, please credit the photo next time you log in or it will be deleted. Thank you.

But obviously it still needs to be credited to the source. Uncredited photos cannot stay.

I think this specific thread should be an exception. Pics from NK are too rare to delete them for any reason.
