North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is poised to declare his signature ruling policy during a rare party congress in May and despite tough new U.N. sanctions, it is likely to be the twin pursuit of nuclear prowess and economic development.

North Korea’s official media have carried almost-daily reports and commentary extolling the “sacred road” to the day Kim’s leadership will be endorsed at the “victorious and glorious 7th party congress.”

This week marks the half-way point in what state media describes as a 70-day “top-speed dash to glorious victory,” a campaign that calls for ramped-up productivity and a sprucing-up of the capital Pyongyang as it prepares to greet delegates.

Propaganda posters in photos seen by Reuters urge residents: “Comrade, have you implemented your 70-day battle plan for today?”

    North Korean nutty leader thinks he can threaten the world with his atomic feats. He can kill many in his own country, but he can’t kill all of the world.

  • Ken says

    Un suffers from the negligent version of liberal parenting. Un like Obama have an ego that drives them and an agenda directed toward their goal.
