North Korea's New Year's Resolution

Happy New Year to all readers! In the past 10 months or so, I have accumulated more than 60,000 views. Not bad for my first blogging experience, right?

New Year's Day means new year's resolution. Have you made one? I know North Korea has!
North Korea vowed Sunday to make an all-out drive for prosperity as it unites behind new leader Kim Jong Un, ushering in 2012 with promises to resolve food shortages, bolster its military and defend Kim Jong Il's young son "unto death."...This year is a crucial one for North Korea as it tries to build a "great, prosperous and powerful nation" befitting the April 2012 centenary of the birth of national founder Kim Il Sung, the new leader's grandfather.
"Glorify this year 2012 as a year of proud victory, a year when an era of prosperity is unfolding," said the New Year's message, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. "The whole party, the entire army and all the people should possess a firm conviction that they will become human bulwarks and human shields in defending Kim Jong Un unto death." (Source)
Well, considering the food shortage, economic depression, and social structures crumbling... I think this is going to be another un-keepable new year's resolution
