North Korea is a trash heap that survives only because it isa protected by China. If the Peoples Republic could be convinced to step back, we could topple the Chia regime overnight, free the North Koreans from their slavery, reunite North and South, and restore sanity to that backward land.
But any such move on our part would be construed as imperialism and China would huff and puff and we’d be back in 1950 all over again. Of course, China won’t do squat to pressure humanitarian reforms in North Korea themselves. Considering their own record on human rights, that isn’t particularly surprising.
So why aren’t international bodies like the UN and Amnesty raising hell about these atrocities? That’s about the only option left and all we hear are crickets.
Have read, the reason the Chinese let NK gov continue is that they do not want the flood of NK refuges. Maybe that is only a partial reason.
“So why arent international bodies like the UN and Amnesty raising hell about these atrocities?”
Because the UN is controlled by China and Russia.
