Into the face of this couple of interesting gacts, I found this site through stumble that shows us what Kim Jong Il has been doing with some of the countrie's money. Proproganda Videos. Man, I'll bet that's money well spent. I will admit that it's got a catchy sort of tune but I can't help but wonder why north koreans don't flip out when they see that this crap is what money is being spent on. Will they eventually place the blame where it belongs or do they still believe the government line that it's the US starving the people and keeping the country down? Surely they must catch glimpses across the border and hear stories about life in the south. How do they reconcile that prosperity with what they deal with daily.
Oh well. I figure we should just sit out and call Kim's bluff. He can detonate all the nuclear tests he wants as far as I'm concerned. There's not much we can do about it short of starting another war, and the only country with leverage dosen't want to apply it. That may be the one good thing about millions starving to death. More north koreans will flee across the border to china and hopefully break what is already a near untenable situation there. At that point China will have to act.
