Where's Timmy, Lassie?

Didn't notice at the time that the satellite the Norks launched earlier this month (straight into the Sea of Japan) was going to beam patriotic songs back to earth:

The satellite was supposed to transmit the "Song of General Kim Il-sung" and "Song of General Kim Jong-il" back to earth, the songs referring to the communist state's founder and the son who followed him into leadership in Asia's only communist dynasty.
What, no "General Inspects Drill Ground"? No "Let's Sharpen Our Bayonets to Annihilate Enemy"? Well, maybe they at least stowed aboard a copy of "leader Kim Jong Il's famous work 'On Bringing About a Signal Turn in Potato Farming.'"

"When provoking a war of aggression, we will hit back, beginning with the US!” (Bet you didn't know I was fluent in Austrian.) (Poster via the California Literary Review, which has several good ones.)

All right, just one more:

"Do not forget the U.S. imperialist wolves!"
