DPRK TV News August 5, 2008 1-4 (north Korea)
it is korean language only. there are also pictures.
personally i believe relationship of Korea towards the neighbours are more important than towards the U.S.A.
most countries now participate on the international market, and accept the US$ as currency. There are also Japan, China, Russia and the EU. for them the US$ is not compulsory for trading.
the background is that personally i would like to see Japan and Korea end war. however, it is unlikely to happen in the near future.
