North Korea's Kim Jong Un honors country's war veterans

Pyongyang, North Korea (CNN) - The new leader of this isolated country has inaugurated a new veterans' cemetery, on the first of what are expected to be several days of elaborate ceremonies celebrating the 60th anniversary of the conclusion of the Korean War.

Several thousand North Koreans, some of them elderly veterans of the Korean conflict, cheered and applauded when Kim Jong Un arrived at the sprawling new cemetery accompanied by uniformed military commanders and civilian officials.

Kim did not speak to the audience. Instead, he cut a ribbon at the entrance to the cemetery compound, which is flanked by enormous monuments and statues depicting fierce North Korean soldiers.

He departed after making a brief tour of some of the gravestones. Then the crowd, which included men in baggy, dark suits and ties and women dressed in bright puffy gowns, walked with reverence past graves decorated with medals of heroism.

    An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I feel that you need to write extra on this matter, it may not be a taboo subject but usually individuals are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    There's a scene in the movie "Deliverance" that I'd like to reenact with Kim Un playing the part of the little piggy.

    60th anniversary of the end of hostilities in the Korean War, but technically I believe the war is not concluded. Not yet, anyway.

    Agreed m & m. My opinion of him isn't very high either, but he did the right thing here so his stock just went up a few points. Now if he would just get the workers back to work on that long range missile launch facility, we'd have pelnty to blog about.

    Honoring the fallen is a great thing in any country. But my opinion of him isn't good.
