We're on the verge of war with these guys?
God help them... Look at all those medals.
This gives an all new meaning to the word, BLING.
It's by no mere coincidence that their uniforms resemble Russian uniforms of the 1950's, either. And the hats are designed to make them look taller.
Most metals and ribbons usually indicate campaigns fought, awards for bravery, other theaters where one was stationed, or wounds received in combat. Since they haven't been in any wars since the early 1950's, then in their cases these must mean a lot of good conduct, adequate amount of respect and morning for the departed Kim Jong Il, and being present at all roll call medals.
Very Impressive indeed!
It's kinda like the Hollywood awards. They are always presenting themselves with awards simply because no one else will, and they so desperately need some recognition and attention.
But have no fear, Peeps. In case of war, we can defeat them simply by flying a B-52 over the country with a giant magnet hanging from the planes belly.
It would look like Resurrection Day to the troops... watching all their officers being lifted into the sky.
