Well, not to downplay this, but you don't maintain a brutal, insular regime with tickle fights and puppy kisses.

The story could have been about most any police department in any decent sized city

They only said rape once.

I hope that the anti-war crowd here vocalizes how stupid the last war was on that peninsula.  If we can't bomb them, the US can't help.

The obvious solution here is to invade China.

It's too bad that there isn't a real UN with real teeth, and more.  I mean a walking sharks with laser beams on their heads teeth, with arms that would punch you in the cock and then bite you in half if you did this shiat teeth.

And we probably could win, because isn't that country like 80% girls?

Once you get locked into a serious human rights violation collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

If there was ever a case for precision bombing, this would be it.

Good luck actually prosecuting him on any of that. There's no way the NorKs would go along with an extradition for Dear Leader. This only means that he can't visit any other country in the foreseeable future.

We need a James Bond to put one in the head. The MI-6 and Navy Seals apparently can't do it.

Eh, until they do it to American citizens, fark it, let em do what they want.

Paraphrasing Wu in the article:  "Since some come back into China repeatedly, there's no torture in NK."

Glad to see it's not just Americans that fail basic logic :)

"The gravity, scale and nature of these violations reveal a State that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world," the report said.

*** THIS JUST IN: UN declares that Best Korea has unparalleled political system, a forefront of the modern world!

Yeah, I know, another will just replace him.
How about giving them all aids?

I wonder if this Administration would have a different reaction if NK snatched the USS Pueblo?

LUXURY GOODS AND "PARALLEL FUNDS"

North Korea "continues allocating a significant amount of the state's resources for the purchase and importation of luxury goods", the report said.

Such imports are in violation of Security Council sanctions and have included high-quality cognac and whiskey and equipment for a 1,000 person cinema, it said. There have been attempts to import Mercedes-Benz vehicles, high-end musical recording equipment and dozens of pianos, it said.


Stay classy.  I mean that.

Prosecuting Kim is like putting Pol Pot in timeout.

It's a damn good thing Li'l Kim doesn't have oil or we'd have done cleaned his clock.  As it is, carry on.

why do they keep calling it the democratic people's republic of korea.  There's one man with one vote.  Even then, when were the elections?

They got a little oil.  It's not zero, that's for sure.

They seem to be very frugal with it, though.

'Cause they sure ain't using it to cleave the darkness.

FTFA:   The 372-page report is the result of a year-long investigation...

I've been hearing such things for much longer than the past year, so way to go United Nations human rights investigators.  Old news is old.  Nice work, jerkoffs.

Well you could, but they'd have to be brass knuckled tickle fights and puppies with chainsaws for teeth, but it could be done.

I get where you're coming from, but it serves a good purpose to make sure the public is aware of it, and they just don't reduce t down to laughing about some poor schmucks with a chubby leader who uses what little electricity they have. It's important for people to know about a government - any government - doing wrong by their own people (ours included). I hated how information from Snowden was brushed off as "well everyone knew they spied on us" - because that wasn't the point. The point is that they're engaging in distinctly illegal activities that should provoke an outrage in us all. Keeping that sort of thing in the news, IMHO, is a service to us all.

/My 2 cents

And that service would be?  To feed Outrage -> Political Decision -> Action -> War -> More debt?
Or is there some other line of cause-effects that this "service" provides?

You really think it serves no purpose to tell the world that atrocities are being committed? Does that mean all those people, often oppressed civilians, who risk imprisonment, torture, and death to get evidence out of what's really going on in the brutal wars and regimes of the world are just wasting their time and lives?

Sadly little is likely to be done about North Korea in the near future. Someday the situation may change though. Evidence of what has gone on there will be important. Sooner or later, every regime loses power.

I never said "serves no purpose" but was interested in what the OP thought was the purpose of this service.  I was truly interested.

These seems to say the problem will self-correct, irrespective of how much "service" we give it, or are you suggesting that repeatedly publicizing atrocities will accelerate a NK regime change?  A war plus sixty years of "service" hasn't yet worked. Same is true of Tibet.
