...other interesting links: The always readable Simon Bone chronicles his adventures in less travelled parts of the world. North Korea in 1998:'Happy Birthday North Korea' and in Belarus 'The Great Patriotic Disco'.

The government in North Korea disgusts me. What disgusts me more is the activist in South Korea who now want to reunify the country with the slogan "One country, Two governments." Of course, this is the same group that in college viewed North Korea as some sort of ideolgical paradise. Morons. Unfortunately, there are quite a lot of them in Korea right now.

I don't classify N. Korea as a country. It's really just one big cult compound. With nuclear missiles.

The turning point for me to regard it as cult was when they showed in a documentary I saw once, people receiving their Government Approved hair styles. When control over the population has gone that depth it stops being a government.

North korea a country with a comparitively vast army now purportedly with the added bonus of a nuclear deterrent, well I assume it is for deterrence.

Thanks for the links, Damienmce.

The interviews above are based on testimony from the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

it's heartwarming to see that a site such as indymedia.org has NOTHING on this - or on North Korea in general. As in, nothing at all. Must be because all the western human-rights activists already found far worthier causes?

A person named 'Sylvia' posted the following links recently on the 'Readers Voice' forum of the Korea Times. I changed the format of the links, but the compilation is all hers. A thousand thanks to 'Sylvia'!
