I couldn't stop thinking of the word "slaves" as I was viewing these depressing photos. These poor people are so secluded from reality they probably have no clue what it's like outside their borders. I've never seen photo's of North Korea, except for their propaganda photos. It really is a throw back in time Great photos and an eye-opener to boot! Star and flag for you.

Thank you, onehuman.
The Vice Guide to north Korea [nK], 3 part series, seems to augment the pictures you brought back.

All this should become a wakeup call for Americans who naively voted for Mr. Soetoro, and a joy to those who deliberately voted for him. Life in nK is a portrayal of Cass Sunstein's plan for America.

Amazing pictures. It's a shame they won't rise up against their dictators like other nations are right now.

It's such a beautiful country. Such a shame that it's being stolen from the rest of the world, and from its own people.


Well hell you better get the rest of your american buddies and jump in there quick smart !!!! it's about time they had american ideals shoved down their throats like iraq and afghanistan...




You know, it just really gets to me when people say things like this, and they seem to have NO idea what they're talking about. If you look at these pictures and you see a beautiful country with happy people, you must be deaf and blind. I'm not saying we should get in there and take over, but I do feel that the people of North Korea need to stand up for themselves, rush Kim Jong Il's palace, and put him in a jail cell deep underground where he'll never see the light of day again. That goes for all his conspirators as well. You really think this is such a paradise to live in? If it was, you think they'd need to have barbed wire fences around the beach to keep people from escaping? Why would they ever want to escape THAT paradise?


If you've ever talked to a North Korean or ever heard a North Korean speak about their experience in North Korea before they escaped, you'd know that these people are highly oppressed, underfed, and expect to worship Kim Jong Il like a God. At any sign of disobedience they are sent to labor camps where they are forced to work 18 hour days with minimal amount of food. Some decide to hunt mice to keep themselves alive, that's how bad it is. If they are lucky enough to escape to China, they can't expose themselves to the Chinese public, because the Chinese round up North Koreans and send them back to North Korea, or a select few Chinese criminals will take in the North Koreans and sell them on the sex slave market.. Yeah, it sure sounds like a charmed life! What happens to those who are sent back? They're shot almost immediately, if they're lucky.

If you've never lived under the Communist regime, you don't know what the HELL you're talking about. My family escaped from such a regime, and in our country it was only half as bad as North Korea. I can't imagine what those people must be going through. They are brainwashed, they are told lies on a daily basis, they are abused by their government, and they are kept in eternal poverty by this little prick, Kim Jong Il. How any of the world leaders can go over there to meet with him and NOT strangle him from behind the table is beyond me. It really is. I get so angry just thinking about it. Please, do me a favor and stop defending the North Korean Government. The people who live there are devastated, and if they knew what was going on outside their borders, they would surely string up Kim Jong Il on the nearess light pole or branch. Unfortunately they are so incredibly isolated from the rest of the world, that most of them will die believing that everyone in the world lives in such a poverty, starving to death.

Go watch a documentary called "KimjongIlia" it's available on Netflix to watch instantly. There are other documentaries about North Korea. There are also videos on Youtube of North Koreans speaking out about their experiences and how they escaped. That should teach you some truth.

Isn't it insane that the US fears these highly oppressed and downtrodden people?

I don't think the US is so much afraid of North Korea per se, but rather the loss of life that would be incurred from both sides if fighting were to occur. The North would be like wounded dog backed into a corner. The average person there wouldn't understand that an allied force would actually be there to help them and they'd put themselves into harms way as well due to having been propagandized since birth.

On a random note, if fighting were to break out, and the US/SK entered the North, I wonder what the few American defectors in North Korea would do/think?

I guess you could move defect there and join the society if you want. That is, if you're not already there and are one of those that the NK government has going around the Internet saying how great NK "really" is.

I prefer my slave society to that one, thank you very much. Since I've lived in both worlds, I know how good I have it here, despite the imperfections of the U.S. No country is perfect and you'll have men who want to rule the world in every society. Fortunately for us we're nowhere near the slave level of North Korea. By that comparison we're as free as birds.

Haha my sentiments exactly...

Who are we to judge another nation? It is easy to believe the BS that is regurgitated on the media and sure there some despot regimes like N.Korea but how do you know what is happening intrinsically at the ground level, what the people are doing on a day to day basis.

One persons poverty is another persons paradise.

Easy to make judgements about a place and it's people from looking at photos but the same could be said about the US and it's slave nation just by reading the god awful stories everyday of how the rights of the people are being eroded on a daily basis.

To be honest the pictures look really similar to one's my friend took when he was teaching in China for a year.. obviously North Korea have some serious issues but I think most of these Asian countries tend to something about them that just doesnt look 'right'.

However, I do appreciate the North Korean Governments 'unique' sense of logic... electric barbed-wire fences so people dont swim away, and instead of investing money in something worthwhile, they make pins with Kim Jong's face on for all the citizens to wear.

Also, why the strange fixation with woodland creatures?

Korea is a Model country on what not to become. There people starve in the streets, while their military eat 75% of the relief food sent from other nations. They are also trained to be suicide bombers against aggresors invading as well as their working dogs.

Lil'Kim is a paranoid dilusional dictator. His status in his country is that of a cult leader.

If you were to live in NK from a western country you would get treated slightly better then the rest of the population and you would be used as propoganda on how nice it is there. You might even be lucky and marry a girl from the joy brigades.

I prefer our western slave society as well. It's just quite ironic in a sick way of how free we think we are. I live in polite and nice Canada, but look at the recent event called the G20 last summer. Just one example of how mixed up our so called civilized western ideals aren't really clear as mud. I have Korean blood in me, though most would argue I am not Korean, myself included. I grew up not caring about my so called homeland ( born and raised in Canuckistan), falling for all the MSM and hollywood conditioning and otherwise seeing DPRK as just another country to be synonymous with words such as "dictator", "rogue state", "nuclear threat" blah blah fearmongering crap. Until I recently watched a lenfgthy documentary on the Korean war I could have cared less. Now I see the tendrils of US foreign policy made too seem a champion of freedom, lol.. I'll shut up my useless one man web forum rant cause it means nothing in the end, except to me.

This is so funny. My wife and I were discussing how western media culture ruined much of the east with our sensationalist views of reality (ie Paris Hilton, Hollywood, etc). She said she wished we lived in a place where people just worked to produce something without care of profit or oil and didn't have corruption shoved down our childrens' throats and, at the same time, have our basic needs covered.

I'm afraid to tell her but that place is North Korea! NK just seems like one big hippie commune stuck in the 50's. They are in a scary spot because they can't stay in their time-warp bubble forever but they don't want outside corruption, either. It's definitely a showcase of how collective production can be successful even without large-scale outside trade commerce.

Ya man. As horrible as it may appear to the average jet setting westerner... I bet many of those poor brainwashed uneducated hive working communist drones are quite content with their lives. Technology is magic, until it breaks and tech support is having trouble understanding your language. That communal hippy way of living or farming or whatever it is called doesnt seem so bad to me.
K.I.S.S.

Canada's version of civilized western society must be different than mine ? I am American and was born and raised American, America's western society is not a socialist democracy...

I'm sure that the Norks would love to have you renounce your current citizenship and come over to their country and reside in that "communal hippy way of living or farming."

go ahead. let us know how it works out for you.
