Wonder why North Korea is becoming more hostile? They're hungry and want to be fed. If the US draws out of South Korea, it'd be all out war for their resources. If China cuts off their ties (China = 70% of trade for North Korea, while North Korea = less than %1 for China), North Korea would starve further. Any humanitarian aid would go straight to the government and military. In short: they're screwed, and militarizing themselves is making things worse.
The chimes of communism is resorting to cannibalism after famine struck an already impoverished land.
Those who eat their families get executed by firing squad:
“In my village in May, a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad,” an unnamed citizen journalist told Asia Press, which is based in Osaka, Japan. “While his wife was away on business he killed his eldest daughter and, because his son saw what he had done, he killed his son as well. When the wife came home, he offered her food, saying: ‘We have meat.’“
“In a village in Chongdang county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was arrested,” - official from the Korean Worker’s Party told Asia Press.
