These are all bad but this article doesn't go far enough in illustrating how monstrous the regime actually is. It does not mention the deliberate testing of chemical and biological entities on those incarcerated. I'm fairly sure it doesn't mention the intense beatings or the rapes that also occur.
It does not mention the fact that the majority of North Koreans who don't belong to the military or the political cadre receive little of anything in the way of food. The millions of tons of rice and food supplements from China are kept for the N. Korean elite and their supporters. Pyong Yang is a modern city. The rest of the country is a shambles. Idolatry of ideology indeed Mr. Cockburn.

Koreans.... They seem to hate people and animals. We wouldn't miss them if they all died.
