This is interesting:



A 13-year-old American schoolboy is hoping to go where few senior US politicians have been before, to North Korea for a meeting with the country's leader.

Jonathan Lee, who was born in South Korea, wrote to Kim Jong-Il outlining his plans for a "children's peace forest" in the demilitarised zone between the two countries.

Lee believes his project would give "hope to the people and children around the world".

Jon Sudworth reports from Seoul.


A 13 year old boy has a better incite and has a better rational, logic, and solution + understanding to the N-Korean problem than the whole damn US leaders+representatives combined.

I will be watching this story closely to see what happens, very interesting.

..then the boy stand in front of the Great Leader statue, taking pics
...later was detained because of "lack of respect" to Great Leader
..thus bring few discussions to release the boy at Panmunjom
...end up in covert operation to save the boy
....which is the reason for NK to relive the war again
...and thus is the prophecy

Do you really believe what you are saying or are being a funny guy?

Sometimes I am never amazed, nor surprised by the thoughts injected on American brains in regards to N-Korea.

Why do you need guts to visit N-Korea?

It would be guts if this teenager goes to Afghanistan and meets an organ thief.

Yeah right, because North Korea is dangerous

Plus: He is american, it is already in the news, if anything he will be followed by some US agents and the media, nothing will happen.
And i guess it is nothing more than a publicity stunt, propaganda maybe that will be used to whos that North Korea is afraid even of children or are the "evil force".
And i mean what 13 year old boy is interested in politics? Most kids that age are more into video games or watching online porn than think about what's going in the world. We should ask him if he is even able to pin down north korea on a map, i doubt he is

WTF who is talking about dying? You walk in Afghanistan alone without a gun, someone will come and put you to sleep with Chemicals, and cut you, steal your organs, then you wake up with stitches all over your body thinking WTF is going on, soon you find out you will die a slow and painful death.


You no idea what you are talking about, little kids have their organs snatched all over Afghanistan, it is deeply under reported, but why would you when you can report suicide bombings and girls noses being cut off.


N-Korea, tell me this, what do you know about N-Korea? The things which you know, where did you get the information from? From Radio Free Asia? Please don't tell me its Radio Free Asia?

The boy is from S-Korea, it effects his people, some people have that consciousness in them, unlike most arrogant Americans who doesn't give a damn, because it doesn't effect them nor their families, nor their relatives.

It is just a visit, anyone can visit N-Korea, but if they have suspicion they will strictly monitor your movements because they are at a state of war with the US who is using S-Korea as proxy.

I suspect Big Bill Clinton will be escorting him. They would make an unstopable diplomatic team!

In all seriousness this kid is a bit of a legend and I wish him all the best.

Do you know...



  1. It is an insult to stand in front of Great Leader...even pics! Yep, he is god there.
  2. To enter NK as American is like swimming with sharks and blood all around you. You probably can enter with other country passport, but if youre American, better not touch their ground.
  3. You are entitled with free 5 "bodyguard" and a real life stage act out through your entire tour.
  4. The kid gonna have no less than 10 commando around him at all time. (5 for him, 5 for his guardian, 20 more on the snap of a finger).
  5. The kid not gonna be entertain much, he go met the leader, a poet, a letter of petition and probably thats it.
  6. The only NK worth mentioning is ....Arirang - largest human powered LCD like display and gymnastic to the precision.
  7. You might get killed while hunting rats for food in NK detention center.


About Afghanistan and North Korea, its not comparable. Both have different conflict and different kind of war although we do have same player.

I'm very interested in North Korea, because its like meeting with UFO, I probably gonna start collecting "stuff from NK" as hobby, its that bad.

And yet you never told me where you got your information from


And I guess you were serious in regards to your first post.

I'm not shocked, as I said, I can't be surprised any more with Americans and how brainwashed they have gotten about N-Korean situation.

The propaganda is so deep that even when it is exposed as an outright lie, they hide reinforce that it isn't a lie, and American continue blabbering the BS they were fed by their government.

To give you an example would be the N-Korean soccer team, and how apparently they vanished to labor camps or something.

Then later actual reporters went to N-Korea and found them, they are still legends in N-Korea.

Amazing what propaganda can do to the ignorant

Be aware, North Korean is not like Afghanistan or Iraq. Its totally different story in Korean countries. The US-SK joint is doing great things there. They are heroes there.

However, in other part of the world, not much can be said, you know the story yourself.

Regarding the boy initiatives, I think its will be dismissed by NK just like that. If you give half shipping container of Hennessy then its a bit different story

I still don't get you, are actually serious lol


S-Korea is part of the US empire, it helps the US in regards to its economy, the US needs S-Korea, just like Europe, just the Middle East, just like Japan, these are all territories of the US empire and Israel is the capital.

If you want wack ideas then I got wack ideas which can be proven.

The kid going may be more a PR exercise though, but hopefully something good will come of it. I doubt he will be used as a pawn at any stage, due to the publicity and the whole world would seriously come down hard on the country if they used a kid visiting on good intentions as some sort of leverage.

I was going to go to NK recently, but decided against it as it was/is when sabres have been rattling more than usual, and the wargames were being held nearby. Bad timing unfortunately, and would hate to be stuck inside there if war suddenly escalated.

I've eaten at North Korean restaurants before though (they have some in China, and several on the Chinese side of the NK border, sensational food, and lovely, friendly young NK ladies as staff). I am no communist or pro-NK in any way whatsoever, but the people are an entirely different story as opposed to their leadership, Kim Il.

The stories of commandoes and 5 bodyguards are a bit of an exagerration though...anyone can go, and you will have a minder (one minder), but you can walk the streets to a certain degree if in company. Your photos are checked to make sure they don't cast a bad light on the country. I personally think it would be fascinating, just to see such a system of life in action. Eventually there will be a regime change and the place will open up I imagine.
