People who starve at the hands of dictators in Africa or others places also do not usually have a nuclear energy or weapons program. Or a strong missle development program, including that they feed their army first and feed the scraps to the slaves.

So if NK's people are truly starving to death the way other third world counties do, why do they have subs, nukes, long range missles, and other such equipment?


Ever considered the possibility that Them spending billions of $ on those advanced weapons , caused them to go so bankrupt they couldnt even afford to feed their population aduqately?

BTW, i think its only fair to point out that many African nations have modernized Air Forces, and some even have navys (Including Submarines)

Now if anyone actually reads some of the links i posted, they would quickly realize the reason PPL Starve in Africa is cuz they spent all their $$$ on tanks guns and bombs.

Its really simple, you start with 10billion $, and spent it all on tanks, u have 0 $ left for food.

If they really wanted to stop the famine, they could simply spend their national budgets on Agriculture advancement, instead of military.

Thank you for considering this reality. Africa's Gov't is the cause of Africa's Problems.

Same story with North Korea, ppl starve because all the $$$ went to weapons instead of food.

Sorry muzzleflash, but I think you missed a big thing here. Egypt is the second largest reciever of US military aid.

From the Camp David peace accords in 1978 until 2000 (the latest year for which figures are available), the United States has subsidized Egypt's armed forces with over $38 billion worth of aid. Egypt receives about $2 billion annually--$1.3 billion in foreign military financing and about $815 million in economic support fund assistance --making it the second largest regular recipient of conventional U.S. military and economic aid, after Israel. In 1990, the United States also forgave $7.1 billion in past Egyptian military debt in return for Egypt's support of Operation Desert Shield. In addition, Egypt receives excess defense articles worth hundreds of millions of dollars annually from the Pentagon. The announcement that 23,000 U.S. troops will be based in Egypt to conduct biannual military training exercises (Operation Bright Star) may have longer term implications for U.S. aid to the region, as might Egypt's willingness to support U.S. efforts against the Taliban.


Nigeria has a Western developed and mostly manipulated oil exports, which fuel their ability to purchase modern weapons.

south Africa is yet under puppet command from the European empire, they just dont make it look as racist as it used to. And ethiopia has the majority of its military might from being given to them by the soviets, and now recently the US as of last year as a payment to invade Somalia.

In any case, not a single one of those countries developed their own missles or nuclear programs, as was what I mentioned, they were all bought. And in any case, the only country out of that list to see the kind of starvation we speak of is Ethiopia, again their weapons are almost all given to them in past and present for the purpose of proxy war.

That is in fact the big difference here.

And As I mentioned earlier as well, we heard about famines mass starvations and people dying, but where are the images? the videos? There is none lacking from the slave continent of the Western powers, but there is definetly no media coming out of NK or even China to prove this is there now? I do not speak of black and whites from 40-50 years ago I mean now. In fact I did a search on google for some images and the most damning thing I could find was this image here of dirty children eating large plates of food.

I just know NK is paying the worlds elite to keep their secrets for them, and spread lies aobut their population for their own protection. I just have not figured out what has so much value there that the elites see worth paying them to allow them to remain isolated.

south Africa is yet under puppet command from the European empire, they just dont make it look as racist as it used to (even though it still is).
In any case, they also recieved miltiary aid from America until 2003, because South Africa would not give Americans full immunity from prosecution by the ICC. They still recieve aid from others, and in any case, has nothing to do with a domestic missle production or Nuclear program.

And ethiopia has the majority of its military might from being given to them by the soviets, and now recently the US as of last year as a payment to invade Somalia. Which by the way, they have never turned up any true evidence that the Islamic Movement in somalia last year which brought peace and stability to the Southern region, and ousted CIA funded terrorists and warlords as well as almost ending the piracy on its coasts was in anyway invovled with Al-Qaeda. They just said so, and now the country is once again destabalized and Anarchic, with a foreign military occupation. But dont worry, I hear conoco will be trying to revive their oil contracts from before the 1991 collapse of their government.

In any case, not a single one of those countries developed their own missles or nuclear programs, as was what I mentioned. Their militaries are almsot exclusvily paid for by forieng powers or startegic resource revenues. And in any case, only Nigeria and Ethiopia are having CRITICAL hugner issues, which can be backed up by photos and video.
That is in fact the big difference here.

I do not speak of black and whites from 40-50 years ago I mean now. In fact I did a search on google for some images and the most damning thing I could find was this image here of dirty children eating large plates of food, and two small girls appearing to suffer from malnutrition. Yes it is horrible, and I do not deny their is hunger in North Korea, but I cannot see any evidence it is on the levels seen in some critical mass hunger locations the lieks of the poorest African, Central American, and Pacific Islands locations.

I just know NK is paying the worlds elite to keep their secrets for them, and spread lies aobut their population for their own protection. I just have not figured out what has so much value there that the elites see worth paying them to allow them to remain isolated.

Great reply DY, sometimes browsing around I get amazed by some of the post, truly it shows who are really posting out of ignorance.


Still I will like to see how in the world did NK became a sponsor of terror, I will like to see some links to that. !!!1I remember!!!!

Also everybody seems to forget the two faces of Rumsfeld, in 2000 he won a contract for his company to sell water nuclear reactors to NK and then in 2002 he declared Nk an axis of evil nation under the Bush administration.

Funny how our nations love to tag countries at will but makes money out of deals before doing it.


I wonder if Rumsfeld ever go a commission for the deal.


Perhaps Rumsfeld now retired wants to make another deal with Nk and needs the country out of the axis of evil first.
