It has quarantined itself to the rest of the world would be more accurate. Insanity reigns supreme in North Korea

The pace of the progress has been slow indeed but we should nevertheless admit that progress HAS taken place.

No you're not! But I have the feeling that this guy 압둘라-爱- LOVE has just been trying to belittle the work of the North Korean builders by pretending that the state of the building back in 2009 is still somehow relevant to the present.

Despite the myths, anyone can visit. They just don't want to, apart for a few thousand tourists each year.

I would say Pyongyang is mostly quarantined in that there's just so many places that tourists can't go to freely by themselves. But yeah, it isn't completely locked up.

You've gotta admit the design of this tower is pretty neat looking.... It looks like a spaceship getting ready to launch
