Kim Jong Il Praised as Brilliant Commander of Century
http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm

"Pyongyang, January 7 (KCNA) -- The world revolution started with The Internationale will surely end in victory with "Song of General Kim Jong Il." Dipak Sharma, chairman of the Nepalese Young Poets' Forum, says this in his poem "Brilliant Commander of the Century" praising Kim Jong Il.
In the poem he says socialism of the DPRK is an impregnable fortress as it is led by the illustrious commander born of Heaven, though the arrogant imperialists are shouting themselves hoarse about "the end of socialism" while resorting to persistent pressure and blockade.
<..>
He praises Kim Jong Il as the defender of eternal happiness and peace who clears away the dark clouds of war hanging over the planet and the brilliant commander of the century the mere mention of whose name makes a formidable enemy millions strong tremble."

hmmm, apparentely one country has a news media that spews more bullshit than our's...

4. Makes you wonder how many citizens of their country...
actually believes the bullshit, like this quote:

I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world in the field of advertising and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency... Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious... I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours... and we tend to disbelieve ours.

5. Well, considering how immature * was at the time...
I wouldn't say 'brilliant', but I would say 'as brash as Bush'.
