Despite threatening the civilized world on a weekly basis, Kim Jong Un and the North Korean leadership are approaching the West with imploring, outstretched hands for food aid.
Due to the most recent erratic and alarming behavior that has even drawn criticism from allies of the Hermit Kingdom, the United Nations has slapped the country with some of its toughest sanctions yet. Despite the fact that an estimated 3 million North Koreans starved to death in the famine that country
suffered self-inflicted in the 1990s, the government is telling its citizens to prepare for starvation yet again:
“We may have to go on an arduous march, during which we will have to chew the roots of plants once again,” the editorial piece read.
Rodong Sinmun called for a “70-day campaign of loyalty” and reportedly demanded that the North Korean people demonstrate their allegiance to Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. To that end, the country is requiring all residents of Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital city, to deliver about 2 lb. of rice to state warehouses each month.
