Do you really think the Nth Korean government or regime can actually handle it's own problems without help - which they wont accept....
Spare a thought for all the poor people of that country that could almost be classed as slaves for the state.
You're spot on.
Especially since a news story just today sais North Korea has cancelled college classes (all of them in the country) until April 2012.
The government is forcing everyone to work on what the news story calls "construction projects" throughout North korea. North Korea has
construction projects? That's new to me.
As if there is any inkling of a reason to defend a communist dictatorship run by a psychotic deviant who lives to wallow in his own self-produced
reflection of what he percieves as glory.
Now the NK leadership is forcing everyone out of college because they're supposedly afraid college students will start an uprising like we've seen
in other Middle Eastern countries.
NK has also increased "police" presence in cities and towns throughout the country.
In 2000, I was fortunate enough to travel to the 38th parallel and see first-hand what the border was like while I was in the Air Force.
The North Koreans are so psychotic they actually have an empty city right on the border. They have loudspeakers the size of 3 story houses all along
the border and sometimes they'll blare out propoganda all night long, saying stuff like "Our country is better than yours, come join us we have an
empty city awaiting your arrival".
I am one of the very few people who have actually walked on the North Korean side of the demarcation line within the building they have meetings and
sign treaties in.
The entire ordeal was absolutely bizarre! The entire time we were there, North Koreans were taking photos and videos of us walking around in Air
Force blues for future use in making fresh propogranda films.
The South korean security forces that moniter the border in shifts carry ball bearings in their pockets so that when they're walking around and
can't be seen visually it sounds like 30 guys instead of one.
Then you have the fact that Kim Jong Il is so far gone that he does stuff like kidnap movie producers to make godzilla style films for him. Once he
had dental surgery and forced others to take pain injections so that if he became addicted he wouldn't have to be addicted alone.
The North Korean people and children are the ones that truly suffer from their self-proclaimed leader's own mental illness.
I was given a briefing in the U.S. military in which they said 80% of children in North Korea under the age of 11 were malnurished. Not much point in
spending billions on propaganda if you're citizens are dead or demoralized to the point of not caring.
These people's stories will never be heard and they will live and die within the paranoid walls of Kim Jong Il's paranoid mind.
