China steps up: In North Korea food is our friend as US increases sanctions and China and South Korea give food, that works!
Kim Jong Il has been starving his people to death for decades so he could build his massive military and play with nuclear weapons, missiles, and other advanced weapons. You know I have been very concerned about North Korea and her Shenanigans as she was firing missiles testing nuclear weapons and as a matter of policy, antagonizing the west in order to bring us to the bargaining table and barter cooperation for food for its citizens.
I finally realized years ago now that average citizens of countries around the world do matter and they are mere pawns and bargaining chips for a countries ruling party to use and get what they want. In that end North Korea has routinely sacrificed its people while pursuing its expensive military endeavors.
As you know, famine is one of the biggest and oldest problems in the world. It will only get worse as responsible nations fight to regain their economic footing. We are talking responsible nations one of which North Korea is not. Right now there are over 800 million people around the world suffering from hunger.
North Korea ranks as the worst in the world in that category and a share that distinction with the likes of Somalia, Ethiopia, and Sudan but North Korea has one of the largest military’s in the world and plays with nuclear weapons while starving her citizens.
The main problem is North Korea is closed to the outside world so the Government can ravage the people and follow their militaristic agenda. Most North Koreans do not realize they are among the poorest Nations on the planet and bow to and thank Kim Jong Il for their one meal a day they get and are told is good for them. North Korea Disaster hunger and famine
I always wondered just in knowing what South Koreans have when the North Korean’s were going to rebel? I have to ask how can any person no matter how deranged possibly think keeping your subjects starving and destitute be good for country order and unity? Free Markets are no longer allowed and the docile people of North Korea were roaming the streets cursing the Government loudly after the currency was devalued. This is pretty radical for North Koreans who have been taught from birth that they owed everything to Kim Jong Il. My heart is with the up to now loyally starving citizens purposely being starved by their own Government!
No matter who gives it to him it is a smart thing for Kim Jong Il to at least see that the masses are not starving and destitute well destitute might be okay but not starvation and mass rebellion. I am glad to see China finally stepping forward in a meaningful way to resolve this devolving situation on the Korean peninsula.
China to give North Korea emergency aid
China calls for compromise on NKorea talks
South Korea offers food while the US offers sanctions South Korea has made its first large-scale offer of aid to its destitute neighbor. South Koreas 'sunshine policy' towards NK was a huge step forward.
South Korea Offers To Supply Energy if North Gives Up Arms ...
This can work if Kim Jong Il will cooperate for once or if he dies his son will. China is critical in Asia's future and resolving the issues between the Korea's as we have said numerous times. As we discussed in the past, being North Korea's next door neighbor China has more at stake than anyone except North Korea. They should want to be key players here.
Whether they were involved or not they have no interest in a war possibly nuclear right there. Being North Korea's immediate neighbor they would be the recipient of hundreds of thousands of refugees if not more. Regardless of the past that is gone. We have to be concerned with the future now. Feed those North Koreans and let's get Korea unified and nuclear free if at all possible.
