I think you're white-washing it a bit there, little boot-licker.North Koreaís people live in poverty, quite literally in the cold and dark. I have a copy of Donald Rumsfeldís favorite picture on my office wall. Itís a satellite photo of the Korean Peninsula taken one night in early 2006. It shows the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, brightly lit. The entirety of the rest of North Korea is dark, contrasted with South Korea lit from coast to coast.
North Koreaís elite ó comprised of Kim, his retainers, and the higher ranks of their military ó have enjoyed the high life. Imports of everything from kidnapped Japanese girls (under Kimís father) to fancy cars and expensive booze create a lifestyle for them thatís nothing like what ordinary North Koreans suffer. But even that is threatened now. Sanctions aimed at their luxuries have been tried before, but now new UN sanctions agreed on unanimously by the Security Council ban everything from yachts to race cars as well as reiterating the bans on nuclear and missile materials and technologies.
HERE'S WHAT LIFE IN THE DPRK LOOKS LIKE.
