Skip to comments.Starving North Koreans 'are forced to eat their children’

HUNGRY parents in North Korea have been caught eating their CHILDREN to avoid starvation, according to reports.
One father is said to have been executed by firing squad for killing his two kids for food.
And it has sparked fears there could be further cases of cannibalism in the country.
The Sunday Times told how undercover reporters recorded several horror stories from inside the poverty-stricken nation.
They included one man who dug up his grandchild's corpse to eat and another who boiled his child and ate the flesh.
Thousands of North Koreans are feared to be starving to death while their chubby leader Kim Jong-Un regularly dines on banquets.
It is claimed that more than 10,000 people could have died from in the provinces south of the capital Pyongyang alone.

It’s sad how, in the end, socialism has this stark tendency to lead towards the destruction of the same children they supposedly are doing everything for in the beginning.
The stuff could be true -- but it almost never is.
Its happened before.
It happened in the Ukraine.
Yes, very sad.
But North Korea was once a VERY PROSPEROUS nation and it wasn’t until the 1970s (I think) that the South finally matched their per-capita income. They (the North) were industrial and doing just fine. But they also had a lifeline from the Soviet Union, and that being very cheap oil. Once the lifeline was cut, the powerplants shut off, and people starved.
In the US, we have lifeline from China. There is now VIRTUALLY NOTHING that we cannot build or do without Chinese help, and that includes our farm tractors, which will quickly start to putter out, once the Chinese replacement parts stop coming in. Or try running an oil refinery, without electronics.
So don’t think it can’t happen here, because it will. And sooner, rather than later.
When the welfare state runs out of taxpayers and producers, then who pays for the welfare?
Now we know.
You said it, brother.
When it happens, People should first eat the people who made it happen
Happened in Leningrad during WW2.
“When it happens, People should first eat the people who made it happen”
Yea, but they would taste terrible...just a bunch of rotten vegetables. I’ll stick with tree bark instead.
both countries were very poor then S Korea discovered the joys of capitalism.
Not based on what I read. The North was doing quite well. In fact, lots of Koreans that were in Japan after the war came back to the North (rather than the South). One book that I read dealt with one of those families and how the father regretted that decision for the rest of his life.
I’m only talking economics. The Soviets had an interest in propping up North Korea, and they did so quite well.
I find this hard to believe.
If these people were this bad off sooner or later a few of them would band together and take what they need from those who have it , and before long we would be rid of Kim Jong Il.
Before I would eat my child I would eat my neighbor or anyone I could catch and kill.
I cannot believe they treat someone who would starve them like this as though he is a god. he would find himselfon my dinner table.
Hate to say it but if it happens here, Obama voters will just eat future Obama voters and stop the cycle. Might work in our favor! (Sarc). No Obama phone will curb the appetite that’s for sure!!
You do not understand North Korean culture. Read “Nothing To Envy” it details the mass starvation in the 1990s where millions of people died.
“Hate to say it but if it happens here, Obama voters will just eat future Obama voters and stop the cycle. Might work in our favor! (Sarc). No Obama phone will curb the appetite thats for sure!!”
LOL. I love your humor...as grim as it would be. You’re probably right - if we hold our ground on guns, they won’t be able to do much to us, so they’ll have to use their own for...
[HUNGRY parents in North Korea have been caught eating their CHILDREN]
BARBARIANS!!. We just abort three or million of our children every year but we don’t eat them. We’re CIVILIZED.
A lesson in communism which is quite obviously lost on our benighted and gormless president.
Horrifying book....almost surreal.
