On display there are more than 500 photos and at least 710 relics of 280 kinds.

There are also a chestnut warehouse where patriots were massacred and a tomb of more than 490 patriots and other outdoor educational places.

The U.S. imperialists and class enemies killed at least 1 050 inhabitants, one third of the population of township, by employing over 110 killing methods.

Over 1 500 pieces of evidence were additionally discovered.

Going round several places in which photos and relics indicative of atrocities of the enemies are on display, the visitors felt towering hatred for the enemies.

Firstly: humour, especially of a linguistic/propagandist kind.

Secondly: insight into the thinking of the North Korean leadership as expressed by their media.

I've tried and can only come up with a few dozen killing methods at most.

Perhaps I've been hanging out with the wrong crowd.

I don't know about 100 killing methods, but it is true American B-29 bombers obliterated every city in North Korea until there was almost nothing of economic or military value left standing. Carpet bombing methods were used, as it was customary in those days. Much of the urban population of North Korea was wiped out.

Yep, that's what often happens when you invade a country with powerful friends.
