U.S. to sneak in radios, boost broadcasts

NORTH KOREA -- The U.S. is preparing to smuggle tiny radios into North Korea as part of a newly financed program to break down the country's isolation.
For the next four years, Washington will spend up to $2 million annually to boost radio broadcasts toward North Korea and infiltrate mini-radios across its borders.
North Korea, probably the most isolated country in the world, has only radios that are rigged to capture broadcasts lionizing the Stalinist leadership. The broadcasts also blare from outdoor loudspeakers.
The U.S. plan to smuggle small radios into North Korea is outlined in the North Korean Human Rights Act, which President Bush signed Oct. 18. The sweeping law provides money to private humanitarian groups to assist defectors, extends refugee status to fleeing North Koreans and sets in motion a plan to boost broadcasts to North Korea and get receivers into the country.
North Korea's Kim Jong Il regime says the tiny radios will air "rotten imperialist reactionary culture" to undermine the country.

(Until they are Free, "We shall all be Iranians!")
We need to start supporting regime change in Iran. If a civil war breaks out we need to finance and supply the freedom fighters. Heck I'd have CIA do that now. After CIA is reformed and Powell leaves maybe there will be a chance that freedom can be advanced in Iran. Jim
Zin, that actually made our paper today, about the radios. I don't quite know what to think of it.
What I can't figure, is why no one responds to your posts?
What's the deal, people?
