Starving North Korea Looks To Mongolia For Food Aid

April 22, 2013 by  

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 Korea’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 escapee’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.

    And i suppose that there is no way this alledged ” escapee ” is lying or exagerating or possibley even nonexisistant?

      While it may be possible that North Korea has not contacted Mongolia, it is widely accepted that the North Korean people are physically malnourished and some even starving to death, especially in “reeducation camps,” as liberals, progressives and dictators like to call them.

      Could be that liberal media is not reporting this too widely, because Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong Un are good friends and liberals love to cozy up to tyrants. Rodman thinks Kim Jong Un is the greatest thing since sliced bread, welfare and ObamaPhones.

      You are a very angry person and the word “I” is capitalized, unless you accept the liberal indoctrination that individuals are not important, only the voice and will of the great collective masses of the proletariat.
