    North Korea Aid

    According to recent news reports 40% of North Koreans will need food aid next year because of shortages of fertilizer and fuel needed to grow crops.

    Should the world again provide such aid?

    The immediate humanitarian response will like be, of course, we can't let people starve. And yet, this has happened over and over again because of the government of North Korea and the way it runs the country.

    So in the long run is the rest of the world helping the North Korean people or merely propping up a dictatorial regime that abuses the people while maintaining one of the worlds largest standing armies and leverages world opinion to help keep it in power?

    Seems to me that the only way things will change for the better in North Korea is for the people to have had enough and rise up.

    If the people rise up,
    dollars to donuts,
    we'll be there in a heartbeat.

    Perhaps a different stance towards the government would help? Seems to me there is more interest in perpetuating animosity than solving problems with NK in the world. Like it or not the west is the main problem.

    Re: North Korea Aid

    My initial response to this would be 'Tough' their dictatorship has brought the people of North Korea to the brink of starvation many times before and many times, world leaders have tried to help. The secrecy surrounding the dictatorship of North Korea has put these people down time and time again.

    However, if we are to progress as caring world, we need to at least try to get aid through. If their Government don't allow help, well, then at least we tried.
    If we can help, maybe it could be a turning point in ending the North Korean regime that hurts it's own people.

    I think we ought to put the free food sign facing north on the south korean side of the border.

    The only reason North Korea needs a military is to keep it's own people inside North Korea.

    The people need to be a part of thier own revolution, if its not fought for by them it wont be won by them and they will never seek freedom and hold it otherwise. They have to feel the need, starvation is a powerful motivator, they need to understand that it isnt the world responsibility to fed them, its thier own.

    Unfortunatly thier government will allow help to come in, by anyone who wants to help, its what they plan on. While they spend all thier money on nuclear armaments and thier people starve.

    I say we arm them and feed them, when they bring back military clad communist body they can have his weight in food. Bring back thier weapon and get 500pounds of food and a free trip to SK for 30 days!
