New Space Station Photos Show North Korea at Night, Cloaked in Darkness

SK and China aren't dark. That also says much about poor choices.

Look at South Korea and then look at North Korea. Isn't it clear who is better off, freer, and thriving?

A smart person would see that North Corea would benefit drastically by modeling their society after what is already working for South Korea. Then, eventually, they should reunite so families can hug each other again.

All for the lack of 1 dictator and 200 military leaders who appear to be very well fed in NK.

Yeah, and Kim will get food from the US and SK anytime he asks them for it, as they have always given it to him the past.

It looks like Kim is already doing a pretty good job of starving his own people and scaring the hell out of them by threatening to throw any critics and their entire families into concentration camps. Dictators are good at that.

Absolutely. He just lifts a finger of his hand and anybody who does rah-rah and suck up to his 'official pronouncements' gets taken outside and never seen again.

Its' Murder by Numbers. 1, 2, 3. It's as easy to learn as your A-B-C-D-E. Or whatever the Korean alphabet uses.

The USA stopped the signing of the peace treaty between the Korea's .

Yes armistice was achieved but technically still a civil war

What would you do if USA and SK continually practice and threaten to kill you and your civilians, and stave your people and prevent basic things like medicines?

South Korea and the US do not threaten to kill Kim and North Korean civilians. They train and conduct exercises to be ready to defend Soth Korea from another North Korean invasion, as they did in 1950. A state of war still exists, only an armistice.

The only one starving the North Korean people is the Kim regime, by putting 100% of their resources into their military *(Songun Policy) despite a lack of food and medicine, and refusing to abide by UN resolutions.

What's up with the bull head haircut ?

He looks abnormally delighted.

An unidentified intestinal epidemic in its faming region

I do believe its a typo and meant to say - "farming region" not faming region.

A famous epidemic of the worms ?

the second day of the nation's major party meeting on its military and defense policies 

Do they have any other kind of meetings in this country?

Kim is obviously more concerned about conducting nuclear tests than the coronavirus pandemic. What a guy!

Kim: ...And then (giggles) the general says to the soldier: don't worry about nuclear fallout form the test (giggles), you'll die of starvation first. (general laughter)

Yet another day on Comedy NK Central. (yawn)
