North Korea: video footage

I came across this recently and decided to share it with everyone as North Korea has been in the news recently. This is a documentary done by Discovery to reveal how life really is in North Korea. While it's main focus is on the starving children of North Korea, the really disturbing parts show up later on in the 2nd half of the video. It doesn't shock me that this is happening, but at the same time it's disturbing to know that it is. There is no gruesome footage in this video but I warn everyone that what you hear goes on in North Korea may disturb some people.

Anyways, here's the link to the video that someone has decided to put on google video titled "Children of the Secret State":

Yeah, on the guns and butter spectrum, North Korea is way on the guns side, unfortunately.

I didn't actually completely get Team America: World Police until I watched that show.

A country arms themselves to the teeth while there are people starving in the streets- kind of a timeless tragedy.

That was searing to watch, but thanks for sharing that link.

Re: North Korea: video footage

I just find it disturbing that people are starving so badly that some have turned to cannibalism and sell human body parts for food in the black market. Well, that and I kinda feel sorry for the women that are sexually abused, tortured and killed in the family detention camps.

Does it also surprise anyone that the North Korean gov't has forced the farmers there to use all ther fertile land to grow Opium(which is then in turn refined into heroine) and sold to the rest of the world? I always wondered where NK gets all thier money since their economy is pretty much in a stand still.

With the way things are going right now, it seems that North Korea is due in as the next US target for war after Iraq. Unlike Iraq which the US *THOUGHT* had weapons of mass destruction, North Korea has proven that they do HAVE them. (If you add the NK nuclear warheads + the North Korea long range missles, you get a very scary picture since it has the range to go from NK to as far as Texas)

Sorry guys...

I'm with you all 100% but this one's going to go straight into Religion / politics, racism, etc.
