ROCK OF ASIAN: Girl Bands To The Rescue

It took me a full day to believe that this headline was real and not just something Tila Tequila got mixed up on her blog:

It refers to South Korea’s plan to use songs and videos from groups like Wonder Girls and Girls Generation to infiltrate and ultimately beat down North Korea.

Girl bands are the new Weapon X? Badass!

From The Chosun Ilbo:

An official in charge of psy ops at the Joint Chiefs of Staff said no decision has been made so far. “It will take months to set up the big screens to use in psychological warfare operations and a wide range of contents will be shown,” the official said. “I don’t know whether songs by girl groups will be included, but there is that chance since pop songs were used in the past.” But he added the content of propaganda broadcasts will not be limited to girl bands.

Oh, the propoganda broadcasts won’t be made ENTIRELY of girl band materials? Well that’s dumb.

Gosh, this concept makes me think of Latvia’s now-annual Blonde Parade–created to raise morale in the small country, which has been devastated by the global economic crisis.

If you mixed ‘em all these “national activists” up in a blender, it would be like a strawberries-n-cream banana milkshake that sweetened all the world’s problems without all of the red tape/torture/dick swinging/unflattering military garb. When the world is clearly going to shit (it’s that time, guys–look around), ladies always find a way to fix it!
