We've all heard about the horrible living conditions in North Korea. Consider the following report:
Sometimes the weather is as cold as -20 Centigrade and many of our homes have no heat at all, says Kim Jae-rok, director of the government's energy
Most of the country lacks any heating or lighting, food is scarce, and the winters here are freezing. Kim Jae-rok, director of the government's
energy ministry, admits that times are not just hard, they are desperate. Not only that, but most live in high-rise buildings and we lack the power
to pump water up to those on above floors," he said.
Is this the North Korean version of "Baghdad Benevolence"?
So, what should the world's response be and who's responsible for these terrible conditions?
Thoughts and comments, anyone?
