More war mongering propaganda against North Korea I see.The country with the "deplorable" human rights records would be the american government and israel but of course the UN is controlled by those same 2 so their record is white washed.
Nowhere better then here

Go live there and see how you like it. I'll bet you would beg to come back home to the good old U.S.A. While I'll agree that some of our leaders have put greed and power above the concerns of its citizens, we are still fortunate to live here then in most any other place on the planet. I pray America will always remain the home of the brave and the land of the free.

There is one young man who escaped from a n.k. prison camp and now living in the U.S. Let him speak at the.U.N. Sadly, no diplomat has the courage to do that.

We are talking about prison camps in N.K and we are all from the USA where we lock up more people than anyone else in the world...

We may lock up people here in the USA, but we don't lock up someone and their whole entire family 3 generations back for a crime one family member committed.
Yea we just target a good majority of blacks and lock them up. We outlaw non violent crimes and lock them up. We privatize the prisons systems to institutionalize slavery in the prison systems so that those companies make money and the US tax payers are handed the bill.
Oh and what do we do with political prisoners or prisoners who are our enemies? Well we delegate them to Afghanistan or Egypt where they are tortured or send them to Guantonimo bay.
So before we go spouting hey N.Korea you need to shape up or ship out we should do the same. Otherwise we'll sound even more hypocritical than we already do.
