Do we believe all that Kim spins?

IT's been reported that North Korea's Kim Jong-un (below) used anti-aircraft guns to execute his defence minister. Yep. Sure he did. Some of these reports are in the same publications that previously told us his ankles had turned to powder because he is tremendously fat (footage of him walking about would suggest he's since made a remarkable recovery). The latest stories are backed up with satellite imagery which, we are told, shows anti-aircraft guns lined up to execute a number of prisoners. The images look very like the ones Colin Powell used to point out the WMDs in Iraq. Remember those? Surely the point of propaganda is that we believe it - or are those responsible just trying to give us a giggle?
