Wait so, wasn't there supposed to be some nuclear test of grand proportions on the part of the North Koreans? I thought this was supposed to be a tremendous act of aggression that would spark some sort of international conflict? What ever happened with that?

Everyone who is spouting off about the fact the NK should feed its population before blowing all that dosh on weaponry should look closer to home first. There are millions of working people starving in America just as there are in Europe. Yet we spend and spend and spend on offence.
NK s such a secretive state how do we even know that hey have food shortages. I've never seen that kind of evidence in this century and indeed many westeners over the years have gone to NK and stayed only returning decads later with apy tales of life there. I myself was head hunted or a job in Pnongyang in the mid nineties. I was unable to accept the offer but met hundreds of NKs, none of which appeared under nourished to me. But to be fair that was a long time ago.edit on 20-2-2013 by merkins because: (no reason given)
Hard times in North Korea are thought to have left some people so desperate that they're pushed to the absolute extremes of hunger; cannibalism. Rimjin-gang /Asia Press recently reported that citizen journalists inside North Korea have discovered evidence of approximately 10 thousand deaths from starvation. Those that live though are resorting to extreme measures. Human meat is allegedly on sale and in one example, Rimjin-gang /Asia Press reports that a merchant was selling it off as pork.
North Koreans in the nation's breadbasket who do not not resort to cannibalism may have to contend with murderous relatives who do. Even though cannibalism is undoubtedly unacceptable, a life threatening lack of food can be a powerful motivator. One anonymous informant related the harrowing (if true) story of one father who aroused his wife's suspicions when he offered her meat, she became even more concerned when she was unable to find her children and called the police. According to Rimjin-gang /Asia Press, the children’s remaining body parts were discovered and the husband was later executed by firing squad for murder.
