A Look At North Korea's Museum Of Obliterated American Planes

The Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum (yes, that's what it's actually called) in Pyongyang houses a wild assortment of obliterated American planes that were shot down during the Korean War. It's a creepy testament to the country's inability to do anything — like run a museum — normally. 

Keeping in line with the government's overwhelmingly nationalistic way of life, these war trophies are on display for the viewing public, in a pretty translucent — albeit successful — way to propagate a heavily anti-American attitude. Floating along nearby is the captured U.S. Navy ship, the USS Pueblo. The sheer size of these things is unreal — but you know what guys? You can keep them. Dennis Rodman, too. He's all yours.
