What a sad picture. That says it all!
All due respect Tiger that news?
Whenever I read one of these stories I always think of MASH, and the pomposity of Alan Alda. Everyone on that show was so SURE Korea would be wonderful if the Americans just left. Check out S. Korea. Check out N. Korea.
Talk about the law of Unintended Consequences. Imagine a bio-diesel initiative sparking a second Korean War.
oops ... sorry ... not bio-diesel ... ehtanol.
And how are the nuclear negotiations going? In the meantime, let the bastards starve.
Let them eat missiles.
IMO,a much more effective mover would be to transmit TV and radio signals from *South* Korea to ordinary North Koreans.As "Michael81Dus" (a German) knows from personal experience the fact that many ordinary East Germans were able to listen to/watch West German radio and TV played a *huge* role in the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Seeing how South Koreans live day to day (through TV and radio broadcasts) would be far more powerful for their North Korean cousins to see than any photos from this country would be.
You´re right GSC - and pictures are better than radio. Problem is, that maybe just 10% of N Koreans have TV access. And power must be for rich only, as we can see that there are no lights on at night. The people of N Korea is too weak to stand up against their prison-guards. And we can hardly do a thing as long as China supports that - and does almost the same in Tibet.
Tibet, Myanmar (formerly Birma), N Korea - when will freedom prevail?
“What should we do with our mountains of surplus crops?
I say, burn ‘em.
What do you say?”
And just let the hungry people die?
What do you say?
“What do you say?”
I say stop lying to the people about global warming and start drilling for oil on our own land and ship the corn to the areas that need them.
I generally agree with you, with the exception that ship should be changed to sell.
