The Songun Review is a blog I came across via the handy "next blog" button. It's fascinating to me as an example of communist propaganda from North Korea. I tend to think the author is truly North Korean, due to such wonderful English prose as:

It is the revolutionary soldier spirit of devotedly defending of the leader, unconditionally implementing of the leader's orders and heroic self-sacrifice, that makes the army a vanguard of the unity of the whole society and the single-minded unity. And the Songun comradeship constitutes its basis. The unity of the whole society is a comradely unity after all and its status is determined by the Songun comradeship, a comradeship sealed between the Supreme Commander and the servicemen. North Korea's revolutionary history commenced along with the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by President Kim Il Sung is precisely a history of comradeship.

If this makes sense to you at all, perhaps it's better not to go to the site.
