Starving North Koreans 'are forced to eat their children’
(UK) Sun ^ | January 28, 2013 | Harry Hawkins

Posted on 01/28/2013 9:13:17 AM PST by Zakeet

HUNGRY parents in North Korea have been caught eating their CHILDREN to avoid starvation, according to reports.

One father is said to have been executed by firing squad for killing his two kids for food.

And it has sparked fears there could be further cases of cannibalism in the country.

The Sunday Times told how undercover reporters recorded several horror stories from inside the poverty-stricken nation.

They included one man who dug up his grandchild's corpse to eat and another who boiled his child and ate the flesh.

Thousands of North Koreans are feared to be starving to death while their chubby leader Kim Jong-Un regularly dines on banquets.

It is claimed that more than 10,000 people could have died from in the provinces south of the capital Pyongyang alone.

And whenever any country or organization provides food to N. Korea the government takes it all and hordes it for the Army, letting the people continue to starve.

Let them eat Hugo Chaves. He’d be good with a nice chianti and fava beans.

If that is a visible satellite photograph of rice, there appears to be one grain of rice in the lower left of North Korea.

There is a holocaust going on in N. Korea and the world is doing nothing about it. Read “Escape From Camp 14” it is quite enlightening.

After all the years I’ve been reading about starving people in North Korea, I would think no one would be left.

That's because if lil fat Kim DIDN'T give it to the Army, both the Army and the 'people' would come and eat him.

This can’t be. I just watched a video of the new Awesome Leader inspecting a brand new grocery in Pyongyang. They have plenty of food; just look at the Awesome Leader.

Remember the 90’s? They claim they're about to make some nuke breakthrough while stories of starvation leak out. Bingo! Clinton sends them food aid (which goes straight to the army). This is the same con.

“FWIW I don’t believe this story....yes NoKo is a terrible place and all, but I am skeptical.”

I believe it. If anything, it is worse than what is being reported. Apart from Kim Fatso, all of his generals are so skinny than I can imagine what some peasant in the remote provinces looks like.

This is an atrocity beyond words.

We can and should help these people and it’s not as difficult as some might think. Simply airdrop liberals. In no time, those folks would be fat and happy.... and so would I.

After Stalin started his programs in Russia a once agriculturally rich country (the Ukrain=) couldn't feed its people and millions died of starvation. The people practiced cannibalism too. Our country has been so blessed and we have never had to resort to these things. yes I believe this is going on in N Korea.

The one on the right is South Korean the one on the left is American, the one in the middle is North Korean.

Note that he is about a foot shorter then the South Korean.

That is caused by a chronic lack of food in childhood.

Man,
Once again I expect some authority types to check this out??
Then of course there is many factors involved.
Type of feed? good steaks or maybe gub mint crap?
Work habits? worked hard or on public dole?
Breeding? come from takers or workers?
See there must be many grades of PEOPLE MEAT!!!

I think all the People's Meat has been consumed (vermin/snakes etc). This grading system won't occur until the army and elite start using the people as meat. Probably not so far off for that benighted place.

I am simply happy to see that Korean-War era nylon (polyethelenenamenadiamine) magazine pouches are being re-issued for the Big Red 1, and pleased to note that Woodland Camo patterns are now deemed appropriate for the South Korean office environment (replete with TRANSFORMERS headgear, faux-Lay-bans, and 42nd street leather gloves) courtesy Jacques Tabernack Surplus, Montreal Quebec, with matching Narcotics Anonymous belt boucles. Don't ask me how I know. But eat your heart out, General Patton! PS: Get Shorty! At least HE looks like a decent cadet!

The North Korean army is one of the largest in the world. They also have nukes and would probably use them if necessary. Still want to take them on? If so, I’d be more than happy to direct you to the nearest recruiting station.

The government doesn’t care about its people,aside from keeping them in line,I am not surprised that this goes on in this nation.The place is just like Romania was,before the people blew their top an executed the local communist despot.

Can’t wait to see it happen there.

Bad Mouth the North Korean Army all you want wiseguy, but realize that orphans in Aroostook County would kill for the lil guy's hat*. Also realize that with a very short lifespan, North Koreans are drafted for national service at age 9.

In re the other thing: obviously what really happened here is that The NKs received a faultily translated copy of some essays by Swift, and completely missed the ironical intent.

God knows what they would make of the Hardy Boys.

Shoot low, men!
