There are no people with physical disabilities in North Korea says a defector.
Anyone born disabled is killed as a way of "purifying the masses" and eliminating people who might be "different".
Refugees returning to North Korea face forced abortions in the prison camps in a drive by Kim Jong-Il to keep his people 'ethnically pure'.
Infanticides are common, as is slave labor, political prisoners and torture. Stories of mass starvation include "accounts of desperate people eating bark, weeds, pig feed -- and humans, sometimes by people who have gone insane." An estimated 3 million people have starved to death under the leadership of Kim Jong II.
North Korea is a horrific disaster in slow motion.
I'm beginning to believe that the more disabled people one sees in public, the more humane the society.Posted by Jill Fallon at March 22, 2006 9:46 PM | Permalink
