North Korea is testing new chemical weapons on women and children
I can't believe no one is covering this. Anyone who watches the news is aware that North Korea has an active nuclear weapons program. But as I watched a BBC documentary last Sunday night, I was shocked to learn that there is evidence that demonstrates that the North Korean government is conducting biological and chemical weapons experiments on humans.
BBC: North Korea remains isolated and in fear of an Iraq-style invasion from the United States. International crisis talks continue over the regime's nuclear weapons programme. But [the BBC] has uncovered evidence of another more chilling evil: that North Korea is testing new chemical weapons on women and children.
Hundreds of thousands of people are imprisoned without charge. It's not because they have committed a crime. It is because their relatives are believed to be critical of the regime and so they are punished. According to President Kim Jong Il, the bad blood and seed of any dissident must be rooted out down to three generations.
Why is this not news?
