Six Million North Koreans In Urgent Need of Food

The news is never good when it comes to the poor or the children of North Korea.  What is ironic about this news is that next year is Kim Il Sung's 100 year birthday and it is being advertised as the "year of plenty" in North Korea.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United Nations says more than 6 million North Koreans are in urgent need of international food assistance. 
The world body reported Thursday that North Korea has suffered a series of shocks including summer floods and then a harsh winter, "leaving the country highly vulnerable to a food crisis."
Six million represents about a quarter of the country's population. 
The report said the worst affected include children, women and the elderly, and recommended providing 430,000 metric tons of aid. 
The study was based on an assessment conducted in February and March by agencies including the World Food Program at North Korea's request. 
The U.S. is considering resuming food aid to the North, which has continued to advance its nuclear programs despite its chronic problems feeding its people.
You have to wonder how it is possible this country has not collapsed yet.

I think it's safe to say that North Korea has collapsed, but national pride and total government control are holding things together. Were this any other country there would have been a white flag flying years ago, but Kim Jong Il won’t ever admit to a problem in his country.
