    Re: US suspends food aid to North Korea

    Im going have to say after seeing so many failed trade embargo's and sanctions, that just end up strengthening the people who we are trying to hurt i say we give them the food. Dicatorships slowly collapse after the people say enough is enough, history proves this. Hell, cool the North Korean gov wants to send a stalite up into space, let them do it, but at least give this startving innocent people some food.

    If NK continues to clown around and develop nuclear weapons, the joke will be on them. Check out this picture of Pyongyang, NK, sometime in the future.

    You could also ask the Russians of 1935 but I would suspect they'd be put to death for saying anything about it.
    This isn't really true. It was quite common to complain about the food situation in the late 30's, even at the height of the Moscow trials.
