Why is North Korea's oppression not a top and ongoing news item all day and every day in the Western media?More like the "Question of our Lifetime." At least since 1991, when the Soviet Union fell and left North Korea standing nearly alone in the spotlight.
Oh ya, what spotlight?
They link to this article about a N. Korea Gulag disappearing. What happened to the prisoners??
This is a good reminder about LiNK, Liberty in North Korea.
Click the DONATE button at the left to help LiNK move North Koreans currently hiding in China to freedom and a new life in South Korea. They spend as little as $2500 per rescue. (Ushanka is not a registered LiNK fund-raiser and does not get anything from your donation. LiNK would probably not want to associate with a site that is known to voice less-than-moderate political opinions from time to time...)
The downfall of N. Korea won't be military (as we'd prefer). It'll come from volunteers like those at LiNK doing God's work and getting the stories out of the prison country and into circulation, and bringing news - and hope - back into North Korea.
The information couriers will win the day.
One thing we've learned from our studies (see book list at left) is that recent escapees have confirmed that EVERYONE in the capital city of Pyongyang KNOWS that they are living in a prison. EVERYONE. They KNOW of developments and freedoms in South Korea and the West. They are anticipating freedom.
Some of us are old enough to remember hearing of similar stories within the Soviet Union back in the 70's and 80's. What a ride that was!
