I was not comparing them NK is a really screwed up country.
But the US really sould not have to defend itself against torture allegations. It used to be a full time job for some Arabs to turn in random jihads for gitmo's quota. Not as bad as NK does not make it good.
And Alien Mind, I was just kidding around about the weight bud lol. I spend a lot of time on ATS myself.
The thing I find odd is that the individuals I'm discussing this issue with has absolutely no clue in regards to American torture, rape, killing, concentration camps, and yet are willing to demonise N-Korea without any evidence.
See if I was from the US, I wouldn't point fingers at N-Korea, especially if I was going to try to defend, or justify the same wrong doings of America.
Get what I mean? That would simply be double standards.

You know, I don't eat Chinese food with meat in it because when we were younger, every time I went do take a bite, my sister would say. "Meowwwwwwwwwwww."

"Wasn't it Vietnam that demanded money like this for harm done to the country a few years ago?
I think so.. anyone find the details on that? Perhaps it will shed light on what Kim is doing.
Can someone please find this info. Don't anyone else remember this in the news? Please help, it's really bugging me.
(3) In 1982 four war veterans returned to Vietnam. This group included Bob Muller, a former lieutenant in the Marines who is paralysed from the waist down after being shot through the spine in Vietnam in 1969. When they returned home they called for the United States government to pay compensation to the Vietnamese people.
In Ho Chi Minh City we visited two hospitals which house the deformed children thought to be victims of Agent Orange. Since the dumping on Vietnam of some 11 million gallons of Agent Orange there has been a huge increase in the frequency of genetic malfunctions. Children have been born without eyes, with twisted, mangled limbs, even without brains. In the main hospital in Tay Ninh, a quarter of all births are miscarriages... Hydrocephalus, or water on the brain, is thought to be one of the many malformations attributable to Agent Orange. At the Tu Do Hospital, doctors need to perform some 100 operations a year on hydrocephalic babies. The operation required is a relatively simple one, frequently performed in the West, using a special silicone tube. But the Vietnamese doctors cannot carry out the operations because they have no silicone tubes... The tubes are manufactured in the US and America has imposed a complete embargo on exports to Vietnam.
The total tonnage of bombs dropped between 1964 and the end of 1971 was 6.2 million.
