North Korean Leader Kim Jong Il. Image: Daily Mail UK. Click for article entitled North Korea puts handicapped in camps, U.N. report says. There are two dozen concentration camps in North Korea called “Total Control Zones.” Two dozen. They’re not kidding about the designation. They started up in the 1950s and hold, all estimates say, at least 200,000 and probably more like 300,000 prisoners. Hidden in remote valleys between mountains, each one covers around 70 to 100 square kilometers. They are farms. They are mining operations. They are factories. Out of those well-maintained population levels, only two people have successfully escaped. In sixty years. Think about that.

If you are in one, you are there for life. Your family are there with you, or will be shortly. Five of your neighbor’s families will be there, too. Three generations worth. You will work 18 hours a day. Every day. You will get 200 grams of corn gruel to eat for the day. If you completed your task, that is. You will be beaten and tortured, frequently, on someone’s random whim. You might be taken away on a specific and official order for you – and your family – to be transferred to and used  at one of the places designated as a “Ward” for biochemical and biomedical experimentation. While the scientists watch you all die through the glass walls and roof of your test chamber.

The governments of the world, especially the United States and South Korea, are complicit in these operations.

They do not participate directly (as far as we know, but more on that in an upcoming thread) but offer the regime tremendous amounts of aid to carry on. They have done so for decades. They know exactly what happens there. They know exactly what happens to the aid. [Seventy five percent of the food goes the the army. Twenty five percent is sold on the black market.] They do not care. They care only about the regime’s nuclear weapons. Although the fear of the possible devastation that could be wreaked by the psychopathic Kim Jong Il is understandable on a level or two, the humanity in me still asks… Why? Well, folks, as it is so often said…

North Korea has no oil and it’s far away.

WAAAH!This just in… As I’m writing this thread a bit of positive news has come in… according to LiNK: Liberty in North Korea, South Korean officials are pressuring China to not forcefully send 35 refugees back to North Korea. Two of them reportedly already hold South Korean nationality. More here: http://j.mp/oHXPah. [China is a long-time supporter of the regime. But what about the tens of thousands of other refugees? – Ed.]

Back to the matter at hand… here is an excellent and powerful documentary that discusses the concerns noted above the update. While a government guided tour will not tell us much besides a good indication of the level of mental conditioning that the North Koreans exist under, the filmmakers go well beyond that… and even piss off a general! So fearful the North Koreans are of foreigners – and of what those foreigners might inadvertently see.

    Yes, I think the North Korean regime puts paid to this silly idea, that the West has fought wars to bring democracy to the downtrodden.
