WHAT THE?! North Korean Just Sent Strange Message To South Korea Over Shortwave Radio…

In dictatorships and Communist regimes around the world, public resources are owned and operated by the government. That means that if you were trying to listen to Radio Pyongyang in North Korea the last few days, you would have heard cryptic messages talking about pages and numbers. Why? Because when Dear Leader owns everything, he can use radio stations to broadcast his coded messages.

These broadcasts are referred to as Numbers Broadcasts. And they are intended to transmit information to operatives. Some of what could be heard on Radio Pyongyang was “a series of pages and numbers, such as No. 69 on page 823, No. 92 on page 467 and No. 100 on page 957, before repeating them one more time,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap.

Speculation was that this cryptic chatter could be leading up to some kind of show of military strength as a celebration of what would have been deceased North Korean founder Kim Il Sung’s 105th birthday on Saturday, April 15th.

And while those messages are still a mystery, it’s no mystery that indeed North Korea did set off a missile test launch on the 15th. But it didn’t go very well. According to U.S. Pacific Command, the missile “blew up almost immediately.”

Kim Jong Un has been trying to demonstrate his might with these missile launches. Notably he has publicly stated that his goal would be to reach the United States with a nuclear warhead. A free and powerful nation like the US really makes his North Korean hellhole look as bad as it is. And because of that, he is determined to escalate his attempts to engage us in conflict. But if he’s been paying attention, he will have noticed that we recently dropped our largest non-nuclear bomb on another evil regime, ISIS. Bad guys beware, this US administration isn’t playing games. You will lose.

Happy Birthday in perpetuity, Kim Il Sung, hope you enjoyed your grandson’s tribute and birthday present of a failed missile launch! It seems those coded messages didn’t actually accomplish much. Time to let the radio station get back to playing the brainwashing propaganda it usually plays.
