North Korea's propaganda machine is back at it, and this time it's trying to justify why a satellite image of the country showed it to be in total darkness. An editorial in the country's primary newspaper Rodong Sinmun entitled "Right in Front of Our Eyes" makes reference to the satellite photo and takes a shot at America. 

The editorial is over 4,000 translated English words in length, with the article saying, "They [North Korea’s critics] clap their hands and get loud over a satellite picture of our city with not much light, but the essence of society is not in flashy lights."

And here's the line that was directed at America: "An old superpower that is meeting its sunset may put up a face of arrogance but it can’t avoid its dark fate.”

The satellite photos of the darkened country were initially released last year, and many believe the cause of the blackout is due to the country's extremely poor infrastructure.
