The real North Korea

I wrote this to follow up on my piece earlier this week on a major Malaysian daily's adulation on North Korea.

Here's a peek at the way North Korea really is. This heartbreaking photo is just the sort of viewpoint that doesn't end up in the pages of The Star, or get written about by leftist sycophants like Sylvia Lee-Goh.

Remember, North Korea is led by a government that allowed up to ten percent of its population to perish in a massive famine in the 1990s.

We live in a crazy, insane world. A world where a single Palestinian Arab child dies and it's an enormous story years after the fact, and a couple million dead North Koreans are allowed to starve to death at the hands of their own government...and it's not news.
