Kim Jong-un propaganda

UPDATE: The Choson Ilbo, Yonhap,  Guardian, Telegraph, and BBC all published this satellite photo without crediting the source–this web page.  Thanks guys.  Very classy.

ORIGINAL POST (2012-11-19): I am taking a break from blogging during Thanksgiving week. During the interval, I will leave you with an interesting image from Google Earth…

While going over new satellite imagery of Ryanggang Province, I noticed for the first time hill-side propaganda praising Kim Jong-un:

The propaganda reads “Long live the sun of Songun (military-first) Korea, General Kim Jong-un!” and it is positioned just behind the Samsu Power Station (Google Earth Coordinates:  41.308824°, 128.157993°).

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers. To everyone else, have a good week!

    It would’ve been nice if all the papers credited you for spotting it but ummm, it’s a Google Earth image. You don’t have any rights to attribution.

    I am well aware of that.  I have been doing this for a long time.  All of these papers have cited me before.
