Oh, Margaret, the guardian angel of the DPRK!

Gone with the Wind.By Gilo

New York -- According to Wikipedia, Gone with the Wind, an American novel by Margaret Mitchell, was published in 1936 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937. It was the only book that Mitchell published in her lifetime, but it became the best-selling American novel of the 20th century, surpassed only by Valley of the Dolls in the late 1960s.

It might be worthwhile to remember that leader Kim Jong Il likes this novel among "western literature."

This novel, or the film based on this novel, left some unforgettable words for next generations. Among them, Scarlett O'Hara's final words may be "the most recognizable, and quoted, in film history. Even those who haven't seen the film know the reference, ..."

These are:

I'll think of it all tomorrow, at Tara. I can stand it then. Tomorrow, I'll think of some way to get him back.

After all, tomorrow is another day.


While you may let it be so, you can pick up the other famous words from Rhett Butler's in the same novel.

Did you ever hear the Oriental proverb: 'The dogs bark but the caravan passes on?'

Let them bark, Scarlett. I fear nothing will stop your caravan.


Above quoted words have been getting more famous thanks to the DPRK. I could not choose but say like this after reading the latest article titled "The caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark" appeared on Tongil Korea Blog on January 15, 2007.

Parts of the article read:

History has witnessed the miserable fates of hack writers. The reactionary writers of south Korea who speak for the pro-US traitors will face disgrace only.

As the caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark, the June 15 Association of Men of National Literature will make dynamic advance no matter how loudly those forsaken by the nation may decry.


Many years before this article, Kang Sok Ju, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK, popularized these words. According to the story that Mr. Bae Myong Bok of Joong Ahng wrote once upon a time* (*text in Korean), Robert Gallucci had to witness that his counterpart Kang slowly reproduced those words breaking the long silence in their hot face-to-face meeting for solving the first nuclear crisis between the DPRK and the US more than a dozen years ago. Since then, Margaret Mitchell has been in side with the DPRK everywhere snow or rain. Let me show some proofs from older to newer.

KCNA Slams US Mandarin's Anti-DPRK Remarks KCNA 08/02/2003

The United States is now becoming all the more undisguised in its moves to refer the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula to the UNSC. Upon arriving at Inchon airport of south Korea on July 29, Bolton, U.S. under secretary of state, said that it is proper to discuss the nuclear issue of north Korea at the UNSC and the discussion at the UN would not be obstructive to the multilateral talks....

Bolton's reckless remarks cast a doubt as to whether the U.S. truly wants to negotiate with the DPRK or not. There is no change in our stand on holding the six-party talks including the bilateral talks between the DPRK and the U.S. for the peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula.

A caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark.

Such human scum and bloodsucker is not entitled to take part in the talks in view of either the importance of the talks aimed to decide on peace and stability in Northeast Asia or human dignity.


Margaret Mitchell's caravan and barking dogs became more unforgettable because of posterior words "human scum" and "bloodsucker."

For reminder, this article was chosen as one of the best of the web today by OpinionJournal of the Wall Street Journal on August 4, 2003.

Rodong Sinmun Slams Bush Group's Pressure upon DPRK KCNA 05/10/2005

The DPRK will not deal with such hooligans as the Bush group who have become evermore frantic in their offensive to pressurize it, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a signed commentary....

The army and the people of the DPRK will remain undeterred and strong-willed in face of any move of the U.S. to refer the nuclear issue to the UN. Their clear message is that the U.S. may do as it pleases. A caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark.

The DPRK will invariably advance along the way chosen by itself despite any smear campaign or any pressure.


This time, Margaret Mitchell is here to crush "such hooligans as the Bush group" out of shape.

Anti-Reunification Elements' Suppression of S. Korean Teachers Union under Fire KCNA via TKN 08/04/2006

The suppression of the National Teachers Union of south Korea by the neo-conservative forces including the Grand National Party is fascist rowdyism aimed at destroying the pro-reunification patriotic forces, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a signed commentary....

No matter how desperately the GNP may try it can never stem the trend of the history of the nation towards independent reunification.

A caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark.


Margaret Mitchell rushed back to save the National Teachers Union and push the "neo-conservative forces including the Grand National Party" down flat.

Remarks of S. Korean Hack Writers Blasted KCNA via TKN 01/05/2007

A spokesman for the north side to the June 15 Association of Men of National Literature in a statement Friday in this regard termed such reckless remarks an extremely rash behavior of the most wicked persons....

As the caravan is bound to go ahead though dogs bark, the above-said association formed by writers in the north and the south prompted by the unanimous desire for reunification and patriotism will make a more dynamic advance no matter how loudly those forsaken by the nation may decry.


Margaret Mitchell was neither a member of the "group of pseudo writer of literature" nor "hack writer" so as to come back justifiably again. Oh, Margaret!
