Late adoption of cell phones is probably the last thing you should feel sorry about for N. Koreans.

Eliminate USA from our mother earth and we'll see more than half of the world living happily in peace. These are the countries who oppose bulls**t US policies and therefore are being pushed back.

And thats because US has control over those countries who have gold mines, are rich in oil and gas reserves and more importantly had faith in themselves. They (US) are trying to raise their living standards by feeding on other's resources, they have got almost nothing their own.

You have the freedom to use the internet. Don't take it for granted.

Blame the U.S. all you want - it's certainly had its hand in its fair share of the world's problems. Just remember to blame the dictators and oppressors more.

But obviously the US doesn't need to take military action against North Korea because those incharge of North Korea, don't abuse their people nor do they have nuclear power which could potentialy be dangerous?

And US exactly did that to Iraq, where they first claimed that they had weapons of mass destruction and then ended up accepting that they were wrong after killing millions of innocent people who didn't even know the 'w' of weapons. But they got it what they wanted...the oil fields. huh.

Mobile marketing is commonly known as wireless marketing. However wireless is not necessarily mobile.

If only North Korea can be democratic... like South Korea, that'll be great!

But it'll never happen under the Kim Family's ruling..... :(
