An Apologist for North Korea

The Ashes of Tyranny blog just came acrossed a blog by a woman in North Korea who seems to be defending the government of Kim Jong Il of North Korea. Of particular interest was a piece bragging of the progress that North Korea has made inspite of evil America's efforts to blockade them, which was taken from the Chinese Xinhua news agency.

Where do I begin?

49,000 power plants and factories in the past 10 years?!? (Yet in 2003 they produced 1/16 of the power South Korea produced.)

1000 Kilometers of new roads, that's about 600 + miles. There are more miles of country roads in the Michigan county that I live in. (and that county is a little less than 500 square miles.)

Increased food production? Why are they begging for food? Why are people starving?

Isn't it odd that the weather that has hampered their food production has not harmed China, Japan, South Korea, or Eastern Russia?

As far as improving the living conditions of North Korea, Democratic Peace Blogger RJ Rummel says it better than I ever could with this brilliant peice.

Yes, the argument is so easy, it almost seems like an irrelevant one to make.

A class-post. Keep it up.
