    Keep up the work comrade, you make us all giggle with your apologist ways.

    I got lucky It was the obvious answer to our local party supporter.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No one, not North Korea, China, Europe, or the United States, gives a toss about people who are starving there. Our governments save face by giving aid but the realpolitik of the situation is that human rights in a dictatorship are low priority to us. The only reason why we would care is if that dictatorship started expanding to other nations in the region, threatening our allies and our economic ties.

    A nuclear NK is a direct threat to the security of South Korea and Japan, our allies. That is the only reason why we're involved or have ever been.

    We're not involved because we know it wouldn't do any good. If we sent them money or food, it would immediately go into the pockets of the the two little fat guys that live like kings while their citizens starve to death.

    Do you deny the communistic horrors in North Korea?

    I couldn't help but discern that you're a communist.

    In North Korea, it would be virtually impossible.

    Unless the army turned against the regime, the people themselves are simply incapable of fermenting a revolution, due to the tight constraints on society, lack of arms and if you wanna see a preview or what would happen to any revolting town... Check Syria for more details.

    Government offices aren't typically hereditary in Communist States. Something went very, very wrong during the Korean civil war and Juche formed as a result.
