Pyongyang is testing its “biological and chemical weapons” on “humans, specifically mentally or physically handicapped children,” a former officer in the North Korean military who defected to South Korea is quoted as saying on the al-Jazeera website. In the interview the defector said that Pyongyang has estimated stockpile of more than 5,000 tonnes of biochemical weaponry, including mustard gas, nerve agents such as sarin, anthrax and cholera.
Im Chun-yong is a former captain in the North Korean military who fled in 1999 with a number of soldiers. He swam across the half frozen Tumen River into China. During their escape he and his men battled their way out, chased by dozens of members of other commando units. “I myself killed three men,” he told al-Jazeera.
He now lives in South Korea and devotes his time to gathering intelligence about the North's military capabilities
"If you are born mentally or physically deficient,” Im said, “the government says your best contribution to society . . . is as a guinea pig for biological and chemical weapons testing.”
Some have detailed how inmates were shipped from various concentration camps to so-called chemical “factories”, including one just a few kilometres north of the capital, Pyongyang, this according to Kim Sang-hun, a retired UN official. "Human experimentation is a widespread practice," he said.

...and who pray helped allow this to happen? Hmmm? don't go all self righteous, my freind. There's a share of the blame on the plate for you, too.
North Korea is a bad place to be right now. Not because of the people, but because of a particular, and peculiar, little man who thinks, no knows, he's a personification of God on Earth.
That something must be done is, I would say, self evident. But what? A war, either conventional or, heaven forbid, nuclear will destroy a country that really doesn't need that sort of issue. So what?
Assassination? Forbidden by executive order here in the states. President Ford, I believe... But?
Would that be a workable solution, as opposed to a war that would in all liklihood destroy North Korea, and maybe a good portion of South Korea and Japan?
This is why there will never be peace in the world. You can't change ideologies with the barrel of a gun.
