I've seen reports, from as recent as 2013, that these kinds of posters and artwork (some of them from the Cold War Era) are still being used by Lil Kim to make sure that his population fights against invaders to the very last.

(Warning: some of these are pretty gruesome)

QUESTIONS:

A) If foreign forces (South Korean, US and/or UN) were to attempt to invade and occupy that nation in the next few weeks or months, do you think that the general population would really react in the paranoid way that Lil Kim wants them to?
Will those foreign troops have to fight against a brainwashed and violent civilian populace in every city, village, house and hut they come across?
B) What if the foreign troops were from China (PRC)? Would they be treated with the same level of paranoid hostility?

PS. I'm starting to see some weird similarities between the Waco compound (David Koresh's people) and Lil Kim's North Korea.

Probably very effective. If the natives don't know any better, why shouldn't they believe it. Perhaps we should start some of our own showing ISIS up to no good.

Foxweasel,

About ISIS, have you seen these Chinese posters? Interestingly, you won't see the activists and the international community getting too worked up about that government's public awareness campaign.

Dan
PS. From what we hear, China's "see something, say something" awareness campaign seems to be working.

I watched a youtube video the other day where they interviewed people that escaped from NK. The interviewees claimed that the younger generations tend not to be as taken in by the propaganda as the older generations.

FYI the North Korean name for Americans translates as "Big Nose" hence the large noses on the evil men in the posters.

Those Chinese posters don't seem to show Uighurs or even Chinese people… oddly Western faces. Still, interesting to see!

Those Chinese posters are great, perhaps we should go back to WW2 days and start pasting them everywhere. I don't think people take that much notice of internet advertising, these would be talking points for ages.

Yes, our propaganda about NK is much more subtle.

At the moment, NK is just catching up with the 'baby bayoneting' of WW1, our more sophisticated audience has the Iraqis dumping babies out of incubators in Kuwait (didn't happen).

Khusrau,

And of course our very own media was all too willing to take those stories and spread them like wildfire, and pressuring leaders to take action.

That's what the press always does, but without the accountability that they demand of leaders and everyone else on the planet.

In other words, they brag that their news reports can move mountains, but then they turn around and blame the mountains for all the avalanches.

Unfortunately you only have to look back to 1945 in the Pacific for an example of a civilian population which had been indoctrinated into 'death before surrender' on a massive scale.

Very true!
