Bugs & Viruses In the past several days, it appears that at least 35 US- and South Korea-based websites were under attack by a botnet group of computers, causing the attacked domains to become very slow and unresponsive and even putting many out of commission for periods of time. Among the domains were many government websites of their respective countries. It's unconfirmed as to where exactly the attack is being launched from, but South Korean officials believe it to be North Koran forces or those sympathetic to their cause.

Note that what's known as Communism nowadays in the World that has continued to evolve since the 1950s is not the original "Communism" but "Marxism-Leninism" and its derivatives. Juche falls by that definition into Communism because it is, according to messiah Kim Il Sung himself, a derivative of Marxism-Leninism. Other than that, it is rather unoriginal and further developments by Kim Jong Il have many parallelisms with Stalinism, another Communism variant.

What the parties and Nations choose to call themselves has little relevance, as the Chinese Communist Party can hardly be defined as Communist by any standard(more like 1900s European Capitalism) and the "Socialist" Parties in Europe and the developed world in general are, at their best, Socially Liberal Conservatives.
