Much pomp as N. Korea's next leader debuts

North Korea's increasingly reclusive leader, Kim Jong Il, made a rare public appearance with his youngest son Sunday at a massive military parade billed as one of the largest in the nation.

Dignitaries from around the world, including China, Russia, Nepal, Poland, Austria and Mongolia, attended the event. Officials said 20,000 military personnel took part. They marched in lockstep as huge pieces of military hardware - including tanks and missiles - rolled along the parade route as part of celebration marking the 65th anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea.

Thousands of military personnel erupt into applause and chants as the Kims appeared in the capital to start the parade. FULL STORY

    phil. Who are they? Keiko Matsui sounds like a good knife. Chuck Loeb, is he the brother of Lisa Loeb?
    The ACLU, that's my guess for who has been before the U.S. Supreme Court the most often.

    Whitney. I agree. Fortunately Little P-rick II with will be dying soon. Time to pay the piper. It's obvious he believes what he has done is good otherwise he would be rapidly changing to a democracy.
    Little P-rick III, who is he? Why don't his schoolmates or teachers comment about him? I'm beginning to think it's propaganda.
    He doesn't look like a skier. One would think, he would have jetsetted around skiing. No, LP III is going to be the worse of all three.
    He's kinda like an upgrade from the first two. We have dangerous, very dangerous and now very very dangerous. Otherwise, his friends from school would be commenting.
    Saying at least one nice thing.

    @Jim....the question was "what organization has won more supreme court cases fought over free-speech rights" No, ACLU is not correct. .Keiko Matsui and Chuck Loeb are modern jazz superstars. "'Keiko Matsui sounds like a good knife"..."LMAO.....you crack me up sometimes Jim. You should hear her play the piano though.

      This video looks like it's from the 1950s. Where's the 'in Technicolor' credit?

    People just mind your own country and your own business and leave Asia, the Middle East, and the rest of the world the heck alone. I think the US has plenty of issues that need fixing right here at home without us having to try and fix everyone else around the globe who's not marching to our tune. Again, MIND YOUR OWN FB!!!

    Okay JohnnyBwhatever. We will stop allowing Asian imports into our country and quit buying oil from the Middle East.
    You better go purchase a thousand of those plastic gas containers, fill them with gasoline and start shuttling them to your garage once you have constructed some sort of shelving that rivals the Great Pyramids. Because a month now, neither those plastic gas containers or gasoline will be available.

    @PARROT, guess what? The old "Silverado Savings & Loan" offices in Denver,CO. are still vacant. (last time I drove by they were anyway...couple of yrs ago) Remember them rascals? All of the clan was in on that scam.....except for the youngest. We call him "retarded Marvin". He did aspire to some fame though. His "Securacom" security firm had the security contracts @ the trade towers, Boston Logan, Dulles Airfield, etc. I always thought that kinda strange. Oddly enough, the Securacom corporation was dissolved the day after 9/11. creepy eh?

    UO111. I will reply now. Our country is very young comparibly speaking. We have been able to fight wars in the enemies back yard. This is because of geography. This is because of a firm belief in God and the fact we die then go to Heaven.
    At this point in our history because of schools, the internet and the main stream media the firm belief in God, Heaven and attending church on Sundays have been undermined.
    At the same time, our enemy is secretly working toward getting a large number of his soldiers here. That is the only way to defeat us.
    Now I understand war is gruesome. I respect our brave soldiers. Our lifespan is the width of a single hair. Not to sacrifice it for your grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, wife or girlfriend is pure stupidity.
    Also not that it matters, the word comrade is communist.

    @ "me"....true your post about Americans being divided about entering WW2. American corporations (like Ford, Chase, etc) were doing a lot of business with Hitler at that time, making a LOT of money off of the war. It got so out of hand their doing business with the enemy, that Congress had to pass the "Trading With the Enemy" act. Imagine that. Only one man was ever charged for violating this new law. Who? Find out for yourself! (grin)
