If you have a frail heart and are easily grossed out, you might want to buckle up.
Marking the 62nd anniversary of its self-proclaimed victory in the Korean War, North Korea has opened a grisly new war museum that is sure to send shivers up your spine.
North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un was – of course – present at the site’s opening ceremony.
It is basically a reconstructed version of the Sinchon Museum, which was built to commemorate the mass murder of North Korean civilians during the Korean War at the hands of American soldiers.
The new building was opened to general public this week, displaying a variety of murals. A number of staff is also present at the venue to take visitors on a tour and explain the significance of various displays.
The rather elaborate wall art and paintings depict the horrifying exchanges that took place between North Korean civilians and American soldiers, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of woman and children.
The Korean War is remembered as one of the most horrific events in history and has contributed widely to anti-American propaganda for North Korea.
Choe Ryong Hae, a member of the Politburo Presidium and Secretariat of Workers' Party of Korea, also attended the opening of the museum and described it as a “striking demonstration of the spirit and will of the army and people of the DPRK to glorify the history and tradition of victory forever under the uplifted banner of anti-imperialism, anti-U.S. class struggle” according to the state news agency KCNA.
North Korea also warned the United States that a war on the Korean Peninsula would end in no Americans remaining alive to sign a surrender document.
"Gone forever is the era when the United States blackmailed us with nukes; now the United States is no longer a source of threat and fear for us and we are the very source of fear for it," Kim Jong-Un was quoted as saying in a speech broadcasted by North Korean state television.
