There's more food left for the ones still living, and that's a matter of survival there. There's been a lot of reporting today about only the 3rd prisoner ever to escape from North Korean gulags. Dude picked corn kernels out of manure.
Sounds like a witnesses description of Andersonville. Yes we Americans on both sides of That War were capable of the very same acts as we see in N.Korea and other country's about the world. Only difference I see is the conditions were so bad the Southerners threw food and blankets at risk of their own lives over the fence to the Yankees who were suffering the pain of the damned.
One of the many reasons I respect the South for their kindness and turn a Jaundiced eye at the Northern camps and the lack of humaneness to the Southern POWS shown by history.
It is said some of the people in NK are eating grass to survive, was this not the same as the people of Ireland in the great potato famine???? Russia when a famine hit people were turning into Canables according to Krusheve.
Ethiopia has a famine every 2-3 years, the Government has enough food to feed all but we fly in tons of food and medicine to feed the starving, the people are told the help comes from their government and the starving do not care where the help comes from.
Where did the millions of dollars in food, medicine and building materials go in Hattie, disease and tent city's still stand and our missionary have to a large extent come home. Mormons still stay bless them but only 20 of the money, food or materials ever reached the people most effected.
Only thing Obama has done that I understand, cutting off millions of dollars in food to our Enemy as they thumbed their nose at us, China and Russia. Why should we support and feed a crazy mans country that can well feed their own as a bribe they refuse to take.
If we just stand back and STOP supporting the NK in any way, refuse to buy or sell from them, then and only then will the people rise up and fight for their own lives. In a way we enable the NK leaders to continue to do as they please, when we feed their people and they are told it is their own government doing so, they have no reason to rise up and demand an accounting from their country.
As I write this I get that uneasy feeling--you know the old by the pricking of my thumbs something evil this way comes, sort.
Looking at home, with all the wellfare, few jobs and the way we are going, if tit to tat comes about here, as the unemployed rises and people depend on Government for food clothing and shelter, who is most likely to keep the government as is, when the wealthy are taxed out of expanding and getting workers, who benefits and will vote for anyone that will care for them from the cradle to the grave. The workers that were never allowed to grow up, stayed as children under the new Father that protects them from harm or want.
Disgusting but not to be unexpected, Actually I believe Frank has a mole in NK. that is sabotaging their attempts to developer their Missals, if not Frank then someone else that has a few moles in there.------Could be from China or Russia, or even the middle East, last thing the Muslims want to take on is a society of no religious faith.
