No, actually, it's quite accurate, as I've already shown (see below)Originally Posted by 99unownoak
Saddening? Not perfect? Your choice of words do not even begin to describe the rainbow of atrocities being committed daily in North Korea, which make Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib look like summer homes in comparison. At least Guantanamo Bay residents get free, modern healthcare (unlike the US citizens, in a twist of irony). In North Korea, their medical resources are so antiquated and sparse that they use unsterilised beer bottles as IVs, and surgeries are often performed without anaesthesia, working by candlelight.Injustices are committed all over the world but America picks and chooses; I'm sure accounts from people in Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay would also be saddening.
America didn't say a thing against the US-backed dictators of southern Korea when they abused power. I'm not saying things a perfect in the DPRK [...], I'm just pointing out the double-standard hypocrisy that's occurring and suggesting that America shouldn't police the world.
The rest of the infrastructure is almost non-existent, and likewise for their industry. In the villages, people scrabble desperately to feed themselves and their families, wasting away in a medieval time warp. The cities & towns aren't much better, with residents wading, brainwashed & terrified, through an Orwellian nightmare come to pass. And then there are the concentration camps--plural. Because there isn't just one, but dozens of them, hosting equal (if not greater) levels of abuse than such that is seen in either of the examples you mentioned. And all this happens daily, whilst the top 1% lavish foreign delicacies & designer clothing on themselves.
Funny, that's exactly what the NK representatives tell the rest of the world when their crimes against humanity get brought up.(though I'm confident circumstances aren't as bad as western propaganda insist)
Seriously though, if you think everything's basically fine in North Korea, you are either deluding yourself or outright lying. Not only are there plenty of first hand accounts from defectors of the terrible conditions in NK (two of which I linked you to), Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch both agree (as well as all the major news agencies and basically any other reputable source) that NK has one of--if not the--worst human rights records in the modern world.
All things considered, I honestly don't think I would hold it against any country--not specifically America, but anyone--if they just wiped it off the face of the planet in one fell swoop, and finally put those poor, poor citizens out of their misery once and for all.
