North Korean Army Gains R-E-S-P-E-C-T...Aretha Style!


North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is reported to have found a rousing way of boosting morale among his troops - by giving them karaoke machines.

North Korea has one of the world's largest manned armies, but levels of training, discipline and equipment are reported to be low.

"I plan to send more song-accompanying machines to the People's Armed Forces," Kim Jong-il was quoted as saying by the Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the Workers Party of Korea, according to Japan's Kyodo news agency.

He told a meeting of military commanders that "the atmosphere changed completely" among troops when they started to sing along to the tunes on the machine. He also noted that soldiers and officers competed with each other to get the highest scores.

Kim keeps track of the number of karaoke machines sent out to each troop division by writing it down in a notebook, according to the Rodong Sinmun. Let's hope he doesn't lose that notebook in Karaoke Bar!

Wow that is special. At least it it fun and you can't be too scared of a bunch of guys singing at you. Unless they are carrying nukes of course.

There are few gifts one can give that last a lifetime, the inspiration you’ve so willingly and unselfishly shared with the world through your talent is one. I’ve been a fortunate benefactor, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Happy Holidays, and the very best of the new year to you and yours.

Having just finished a year living in South Korea, I can see how a 'noraebong' machine is good for moral. In Seoul, there's a karaoke bar on every corner- and Koreans are suckers for it.
