North Korea releases Cheonan poster

From the Chosun Ilbo:

North Korea has been distributing a propaganda poster apparently boasting about its sinking of the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan in March, Radio Free Asia reported Tuesday. The U.S.-funded radio station based the claim on a poster it obtained from a Chinese businessman just back from a trip to the North.

The poster shows a North Korean soldier's fist smashing the ship into two pieces, accompanied by a slogan saying, "We'll take it down with a single blow if it attacks!"
It's certainly striking, as most North Korean posters are. If reunification happens, one wonders what will happen to those posters. I can imagine a great many people in the south (and likely the north as well) would want nothing more than to burn them at the first opportunity.

On a somewhat-related note, I really wish there was a way to automatically generate text in the font seen on that poster.
