News out of North Korean in notorious unreliable, but food shortages in the country have gotten so bad and people so desperate that there are now reports of men murdering their own children for food. These startling reports were compiled by independent reporters commissioned by Asia Press, a independent press agency focusing on Asia, and were published by the Sunday Times. And here's one of the most disturbing thing you'll read this morning:
The source said: "While his wife was away on business he killed his eldest daughter and, because his son saw what he had done, he killed his son as well. When the wife came home, he offered her food, saying: 'We have meat.'
and at the very bottom he has this to say
Bolstering Nuclear Deterrence Is DPRK's Option for Defending Dignity and Security of Nation
Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- The DPRK's third underground nuclear test was a strong measure for self-defence to cope with the U.S. and its allies' shameless provocation against the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a bylined article.
if that does not say nuke blackmail i do not what would
If the U.S. imperialists and the puppet warmongers make even the slightest provocation encroaching upon the sovereignty of the DPRK while calling for "tightening sanctions", its revolutionary armed forces which have grown stronger with the might of Songun will deal merciless and prompt annihilating blows to the aggressors by mobilizing all the offensive and defensive means including a nuclear deterrence.

They can't get oil to be able to run fishing boats further out to sea.....poor poor North Koreans are getting tactics used on them that is starving them to death.
there is more to her story, to long to post but that should give you an idea of how things are there. I do not wish harm to the people of DPRK , only the Mil and the leader, if it comes to that road. , even then it is peace first , if it was up to me... yes they can have a nuke just one , as far as power plants as many as they want just like the US, China, France, UK,EU, and Russia and other nuke country's even Iran. If Pakistan and India can have them, why not DPRK and Iran. Yea i know they would use them, with out thinking.
If you’ve got a question then you can find out how you can get it answered by visiting our “Ask a North Korean” page here. We’ll start sending the best of your questions to Jae-young from early next week, so get writing now!
We start the feature today with a question about what North Koreans really think of their cousins in South Korea.
Tad Farrell, September 2012.
Question: What do North Koreans really think of South Koreans? Does North Korean propaganda really influence what people think when it comes to South Korea?
Jae-young: Those who live near the borders with China know a lot about South Korea. Information about South Korea flows in along with the Chinese products, video and radios that are smuggled into North Korea. Many South Korean TV programs are also smuggled in the form of videos often and surprise North Koreans who obtain and watch them secretly. However, people in most areas that are far from the borders do not know much about South Korea. A North Korean who became a friend of mine during the process of escaping from North Korea told me that the friend only learned about South Korea after arriving in China. People in most inland areas do not have much access to transportation and communication and receive ideological education through the state TV which is the North Korean government’s propaganda tool. As a result, information about South Korea cannot reach them even through word of mouth.

This could very well escalate if people don't use logic in the politics part of this. We should stop attempting to put sanctions on them and let them be. Both nations would gain greatly from this as would the world.
Although South Korea may have to give up a little tug on there end of the Korean rope more so then the U.S. Really just because of the location... Sad but true and would be best in the end.edit on 2/19/2013 by Allaroundyou because: Using a bad touch pad the deletes my stuffs.
there is nothing one can do to change an idea ,with deep roots. all one can do is wait for the next revolt.
Songun politics is rooted in the military-priority ideology that embodies the Juche idea. President Kim Il Sung is a founder of Songun ideology and an outstanding leader of the Songun revolution. He inherited a revolutionary heritage of two pistols from his father and made a determination to restore the lost country with an armed struggle.
The formation of the "Down-with-Imperialism Union" by the President in October Juche 15 (1926) was a proclamation of do-or-die battle to crush the Japanese imperialists. The two pistols left over by his father, Kim Hyong Jik and the program of the "Down-with-Imperialism Union" pointing out a staunch anti-imperialist and independent stand are the starting point of Songun ideology, ideology of giving precedence to arms and the military.
