I am surprised the Worst Koreans haven't defected. That's the only reason to be a North Korean olympian - a free flight to London. Then sometime during the middle of the Olympics, in the dark of night, sneak out of the Olympic village past your slavedriving coaches and into the streets of London. Disappear. Heck, if you lose, and you probably will, your punishment is a labor camp. You'd be stupid not to.

Don't blame them.

Except that my country is also farked. I suppose it's all relative.

Except if you do, your family's punishment is they get sent to a labor camp.

Yeah, they only bring athletes they can control via social ties now. Been awhile since a major Nork defection.

how can people say that if we (the usa) invaded north korea and removed their leaders and took over their country, they wouldn't be overjoyed and greet us as liberators (except for the ones we had to kill during the invasion). Their regime is evil. their people are starving. Turning that country into an Iraq or Afghanistan would be an improvement for them.

Doesn't really change the fact that we should not be invading any countries for any reason what-so-ever that does not directly prevent damage to our country. Sorry, but in the big boy world there are bad people who do bad things. We cannot be expected to, and most other countries do not want us to, be the police of the whole world.

Part of the problem is that the majority is docile and accepts it. It's like if you have an alcoholic friend; no matter what you do, you can't make them stop drinking if they aren't motivated to do so. You just can't work harder on their problems than they do.

If the masses revolt, I'm all for helping out. Until then, kill them with kindness and hope to inspire.

Because they are so farked in the head they have no clue that liberation would be to their benefit. They honestly, through generations of brain washing, believe they are a superpower, the rest of the world is far worse off, and that any evidence to the contrary is propaganda.

The other thing is even if they did get up the guts, they've been left so emaciated and so outgunned that the regime could just mow them down if they really had to. And if anyone tries to go in and help them from outside, they do so at the cost of Seoul being blown off the map.

You ask the average South Korean, they're fine with that. They'd love to reunite, but they don't press it the way North Korea does. Their solution, if you asked them, is likely to be 'Just sit tight and let hunger run its course; no sense getting ourselves blown up by the thousands over something we can just wait them out on'.

China would never allow it. As crazy as the Kim's are, China can depend on them to provide a buffer from the democracy of Worst Korea. If we (and Worst Korea) invaded Best Korea, millions would likely flee North into China, another thing the Chinese don't want.

I wonder what the procedure is for this. I imagine there has to be some protocol or agreement that if you come you can't (as easily) call for asylum unless it's "if I go back there, I will die."
