For example, I would be way more interested if they f/u about the human trafficking, forced labor and imprisonment of those that wound up in China. That last bit about the artificial flowers - the irony of them "made in China" by slave labor and imprisoned laborers, then sold to NK - is interesting. So is the fact that China forces them to make the flowers with asbestos - with or without protection (there is no protection for the NK laborers) - is something that should be featured on its own. The Chinese government is culpable on so many levels that it is an outrage, but instead more dancing.
The NK is very much forced to deny even the most obvious, self-evident facts like starvation; this is a whole nother level of brainwashing. We should hold China accountable, as they are keeping this regime floating, knowing about all of this. They also contribute to a grim experience for any escapee. All they'd have to do is say no. No food, no money, no nothing until major changes - as the Chinese have done themselves - and see how fast Kimboys capitulate.
Just for growing opium instead of food during a great famine with deaths up into the millions, that should happen. Most of the time, revolt finally comes from the populace, but since generations from birth to death have been brainwashed, that's not happening. So we should sanction China and any other country doing business with them. Even the USSR at its worse was not as bad as this.
Just fascinating, so next please!
