As to everyone rebutting this argument by pointing out malnutrition in the area, may i remind you that 1. The U.S. has its own damn problems with malnutrition due to capitalism and that 2. The U.S. basically caused the DPRK famine through incredibly strict trade sanctions due to the Korean War that have yet to be lifted despite the literally over 100 propositions for surrender made by the DPRK since the War?
People have been killed for looking at bootleg videos people have been killed for listing to South Korean pop music. Why do you think people who have taken pictures of the general public have been banned from their country? www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsnef_… Because North Korea doesn't want to let the world know how its treat its majority.
North Korea is not a great country, due to the country's poor farming policy 10 percent of its people died in the 90's. The goverment told them they had to work harder and shifted the blame to the Western-country.
