N. Koreans allegedly turning to cannibalism.

These people literally live in the dark. At night all of power plants are shut down to preserve energy. These people built an interstate highway system, and only about 100 people(and that is a very lenient estimate) in the whole country have a car. When you look at a satellite image from space of Korea at night the south part is lit up like a Xmas tree. The north part is pitch black.

As long a N Korea has a dictator, it'll never change. The people will not rise up, and as long as China is willing to let it go on, no country will try to unify Korea. It would take another war to unify Korea, but the price paid would be way too high.

North Koreans will spend several more decades starving to death while their leader feasts.

When the new dictator took over my one and only hope for him was that he be competent enough to keep his people from starving to death like under the previous regime.


What makes you think Kimmy wants to end the famines, or even cares?

N Korea is the one that liberals like, right?

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.'

"But his wife, suspicious, notified the Ministry of Public Security, which led to the discovery of part of their children's bodies under the eaves."

And another from Gu Gwang-ho, one of the Asia Press's citizen journalists said:

"There was an incident when a man was arrested for digging up the grave of his grandchild and eating the remains."

The big question here is whether this is all true or new urban legends. Considering this is North Korea and taking into account the country's propensity to keep secrets and publish propaganda pieces¬ówe'll likely never get real confirmation from their end. But Asia Press has worked with citizen reporters in the famine-struck regions of North and South Hwanghae for the past year, and The Independent considers their reports credible.

Sadly, this isn't the first time we've heard reports of cannibalism from North Korea. Back in 2003, during another food shortage there were refugee accounts that people in the country began killing and eating their children and then selling their children's corpses. The Telegraph's Mark Nicol reported at the time:

Aid agencies are alarmed by refugees' reports that children have been killed and corpses cut up by people desperate for food. Requests by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to be allowed access to "farmers' markets", where human meat is said to be traded, have been turned down by Pyongyang, citing "security reasons".

And then there's the fact that we know North Korea was devastated by storms and flooding in the summer of 2012. You can't hide a tropical cyclone. Thing have grown so desperate, that they almost took South Korean aid this September, which is a big deal considering the rocky relationship between the two countries and the North's fierce pride of independence. Reports of previous famines have been well documented and Asia Press claims that as many as 10,000 people may have died because of the "Hidden Famine" this year.

Snake, you criticise Sir_Mix_A_Lot for using yahoo links, don't you feel sorry for posting this?

This Yahoo report is stupid; there are plenty of other sources of food in NK. Nice way to stir up hatred though. Obviously, and I'll see this on 4chan.

As someone who lives in Asia, I have never heard of this "new group" and generally "citizen journalists" is essentially another name for mudrakers and tabloids in the region. I would wait a bit before I believe everything that is being told.

It's funny that there are no calls from the left for NK to cut defense spending and stop giving preferential treatment to the military.

Liberals will do the same here in America after Obama is done ruining America's credit and running our economy into the ground.
