Starving North Korea Looks To Mongolia For Food Aid
North Korea has issued an appeal to landlocked Mongolia for food assistance, bypassing strained relations with neighboring China in an effort to send nourishment to the starving, isolated country.
Information on the extent of North Koreaâ€™s malnourishment is limited, but the World Food Program notes that one in three North Korean children experiences stunted growth because of malnourishment, and North Koreans as a whole have gone from being physically taller than their South Korean neighbors to half a foot shorter.
“We ask Mongolia to seek possibilities of delivering food aid to North Korea,” the North Korean ambassador wrote to Mongolian President Ts. Elbegdorj last week.
The Express U.K. last week reported an escapeeâ€™s account of routine cannibalism in the Hermit Kingdom under both deceased Dear Leader Kim Jong-il and his son, current dictator Kim Jong-Un.
Ben Bullard Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
