The North Korean government
is probably the greatest killer
of innocents on earth today.
The estimates are that it killed up to
3.5 million people
in the 1990s famine,
and more before and since.
This may be
the worst state killing on earth since Mao.
The most evil place on earth.

North Korea Uncovered
When will the armies of the free world come to liberate this place?
"Fine-sounding, but claptrap. The
never-again scenario comes round again every year. This
very minute in North Korea there are entire families
interned in concentration camps. Concentration camps
with gas chambers."
And no one cares.
A middle-aged South Korean leftie academic
decides to collaborate with North Korea.
He idiotically moves with his family to North Korea in 1985.
Too late he realises his mistake and defects.
In retaliation, North Korea arrests his wife and children in 1987 and puts them in
Yodok concentration camp.
He has not seen them since, and they are probably long dead.

Later he will have them and their parents shot, starved, or sent to camps.

South Korea is now 20 times richer than North Korea.
(Not 20 percent richer. 20 times richer!)
North Korean war and terror
For 50 years, North Korea has been engaged in sporadic military and terrorist attacks on South Korea.
"Kim Jong Il, of course, has not had to endure the consequences of his failed policies.
While he lives like royalty in Pyongyang, he keeps hundreds of thousands of his people locked in prison camps
with millions more mired in abject poverty, scrounging the ground for food.
For many in North Korea, life is a hellish nightmare.
As reported by the State Department Report on Human Rights, we believe that some 400,000 persons died in prison since 1972 and that starvation and executions were common.
Entire families, including children, were imprisoned when only one member of the family was accused of a crime.
It is not natural disasters that are to blame for the deprivation of the North Korean people
- but the failed policies of Kim Jong Il."
He also calls Kim Jong Il
"a tyrannical dictator".
This speech got him into trouble,
and the genocidal killers who run North Korea
But I can't see anything controversial in it.
If Kim Jong Il
is not a genocidal tyrant, then the words do not mean anything
and should be removed from the dictionary.
North Korea and South Korea at night.
You can see tyranny above and freedom below, even from space.

Facing Up to North Korea
- Joshua Muravchik, March 2003, on pre-emptive war.
"Part of the cause of our present predicament is that we ruled out the use of force at earlier
points in this saga - when, however painful, it would have been less costly than today. And today it may be less costly than a
few years from now, when North Korea will have dozens of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles (it has tested one that
could reach Alaska) or when it will have shared them with al Qaeda and others."
"Numerous preemptive counter-proliferation strikes have taken place since 1940.
Allied air forces and special operations forces
destroyed German nuclear facilities and heavy water supplies that were an integral part of the Nazi A-bomb research effort.
U.S. bombers also destroyed the most important Japanese nuclear research laboratory in Tokyo at the end of WWII.
Other raids include: Iran versus Iraq in 1980, Israel versus Iraq in 1981,
Iraq versus Iran with seven raids from 1984 to 1988,
and the U.S.-led coalition versus Iraq in 1991."
Stanley Kurtz, October 9, 2006:
"What will it take to wake up the West?
Will a nuclear explosion beneath a North Korean mountain be enough?
The threat of nuclear terror has been rumbling beneath the surface since 9/11, yet still we're in denial.
Korean bombs, missiles, and expertise will sail, fly, run, and walk to the Middle East."
"we are one step closer to a nuclear catastrophe.
North Korea is cash strapped and irresponsible, willing to sell anything to anyone for hard cash."
"it has stripped any plausibility to arguments that engaging dictators works.
Our failure was bipartisan. Clinton's strategy was ill-conceived,
but when push came to shove, the Bush White House drank the same Foggy Bottom Kool-Aid."
on how the naive Democrats dealt with North Korea.
Being nice to thugs and bullies
will not make them behave better.
