North Korea is facing a shortfall of more than 1.2 million tonnes of grains to feed a population that is already suffering from malnutrition, according to a new report, raising the spectre of another possible famine in the isolated nation. “North Korea has been identified as experiencing a food crisis, with many households experiencing undernourishment or minimal levels of nutrition,” said the South Korea state-run Korea Development Institute think tank on Thursday.”People’s basic household assets are being sold off to procure food. This is not sustainable and action needs to be taken immediately.” More
Trump would seriously have considered sending food—maybe with “strings” attached, maybe not.
Biden will do what he’s told to do.
Widespread famine? Well, the survivors should have plenty to eat soon!
OK I’ll take the heat. That disgusting comment was mine!
Kim Jong-un has been looking a little gaunt. No, the opposite of that, like a pig at the trough.
Communism, it’s what’s for dinner.
@gin blossom – my first thoughts weren’t very nice either. I thought this is an excuse for kji to extort money from democrat politicians and they will send him pallets of cash – while NK people still starve.
Whoever wrote that article forgot to mention that socialism/communism is to blame..period. BTW, this is china’s problem, let them deal with the fallout of protecting the Little Dictator
PHUCH THEM. STUPID AZZHOLES.
Well you wouldn’t KNOW IT, by looking at the pot-belly pig! 😳
Not to worry, China will buy American corn & send it over the border.. Thanks American farmers said the Fat Man. He’s still printing counterfeit $100’s . China will pay us cash .
The democrats must look toward North Korea with envy and admire the little porker for his iron fisted control.
They are Allies of ChYna.
They are ChYna’s Problem.
Communism creates Hunger.
And death by genocide.
China won’t buy food for NK. They will get the UN to ask Generous Joe for a handout paid by American taxpayers. Generous Joe will generously donate American grains to feed NK while reducing supplies and raising prices, except those paid to the farmers. Generous Joe will not ask for anything in return.
Dictators come in many flavors, this one seems to be pork.
Seems like Kim could make and fire off fewer missiles and buy his people some food.
Disturbing Indications North Korea Facing Large Scale Famine Outside of Kim Jung Un’s Palace”
Fixed it…you’re welcome.
And this is different from any other day how?
At the very least, it’s been known for years that North Koreans are starving…..for freedom.
I can’t bring myself to care….
China has plenty of wet market bats it can send to them!
Must be a hundred reasons I should care. Funny I can’t think of one.
Sure, we should feed our avowed enemy so they can continue to build and test Nuclear Weapons to destroy the US, Korea, Taiwan and Japan.
History Repeating itself.
That’s reasonable just like these corporations supported Hitler and the Nazis: (and others) IBM, Coca Cola, GM, Ford, Alcoa, Woolworth, Brown Brothers Harriman (and the Bush Family), Dow Chemical, Chase Manhattan Bank, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and The Associated Press Engaged in Self-Censorship and Fired its German Jewish Staff to Placate the Nazis.
Oh … that’s a shame …
Following in Cuba’s and Zimbabwe’s and Venezuela’s and China’s and Soviet Union’s, and Albania’s, and Ethiopia’s, and Rumania’s, and Nicaragua’s, and Ukraine’s, and Belorussia’s, and Azerbaijan’s, and Georgia’s, and … footsteps.

But they have money to spend on weapons? I tell you, Mortimer. You can’t be soft on these people. I know.
I watched a fascinating documentary called “The Hermit Kingdom” some years ago. It showed from the inside how North Korea functions. If you can call it functioning. The chosen few get to live in relative comfort in Pyongyang while those outside of it have to make do with what they can when they can. Just what the Democrats in this country are striving to do to people like us.
Seems like this is a dominate feature in Progressive Commie and Marxist governments.
How many BLM-ers and Antifa-tikesters know how to grow their own food to survive after they burn down, or destroy, and then own all the farmland, supply and transport, when they don’t know how to do any of this.
Same as what happened in Venezuela with oil. No one in the newly-“elected” “Guberment” knew how to do any of this to make it work.
Easy! They just continue to steal what’s left of their country through POWER and police and military intimidation/killing until, a generation or two later, it all implodes on themselves.
Gee, that’s a shame!
Soylent Green® will save the day!
“But they have money to spend on weapons?”
Their armed forces are a joke. They wouldn’t last very long. They have no reasonable air force. They have fuel problems too. They are a paper tiger.
Actually, this is an opportunity to break through their propaganda machine and reach the people on a real level. The leaders will do anything they can to prevent that, though.
You should check out some you tube video of defectors from N. Korea. You’ll get a better idea of how lame the rulers are over there and some kindness could go very far in toppling the regime.
