North Korean parents 'eating their own children'

North Korean parents 'eating their own children' after being driven mad by hunger in famine-hit pariah state

A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.

A 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.

The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.

Undercover reporters from Asia Press told the Sunday Times that one man dug up his grandchild's corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food.

Very sad, to be sure, but...

I thought only conservatives engaged in this type behavior.

To read that headline, it almost seems like the writer wouldn’t have such a problem with it if they were eating someone else’s children.

Obama believes that the west is responsible for this because communism is the perfect system.

Their dear leader looks well fed. In fact, he's quite chubby. That's what happens when the government becomes too powerful (communist).

Take a good look at America folks. It's easy to see we're on the edge of becoming the same thing.

Probably taste like chicken. You’ll just be hungry an hour later though.

Remember the Donner Party incident?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donner_Party

The Donner Party was a group of 87 American pioneers who in 1846 set off from Missouri in a wagon train headed west for California, only to find themselves trapped by snow in the Sierra Nevada. The subsequent casualties resulting from starvation, exposure, disease, and trauma were extremely high, and many of the survivors resorted to cannibalism.


Extreme hunger will bring the primordial animal out of the human.

If the child was recently deceased and buried underground, the meat would still be viable for days. If the ground was frozen, the meat would be viable for weeks or even months.

If you can abort your own children, why can’t you eat them? It’s just a choice, after all.

“Gangnam Style” would be a recipe if it weren’t for US troops. I think of that singing bastard every time I see what would have happened to South Korea if American soldiers weren’t there to save them.

I thought communism was supposed to make everyone happy! Everybody equal. No wants or needs. Give to all according to their needs.
Guess it was a bunch of horse droppings.

Tom Freidman would support the discipline it took for such population control. Yeah, I think he’s that sick since hearing his praise of ChiComs.

“Extreme hunger will bring the primordial animal out of the human.”

It might also get them inclined to get a job.

End government food stamp programs!

The UK publications tell us all of the top “secret,” “hidden” stuff, as we know from reading about UFOs from those publications. ;-)

Survey says YES! It was an old (70s) SNL skit. Somehow, that makes it even more appropriate.
