    Thank you George for your astute insight...

    I note that on the site of that Korean map link that there are several assholes who say it is Photoshopped US propaganda. No shit. Must be nice to have blinders. Much more comfortable.

    There's a satellite pic of Haiti/Domin. Same stark contrast. Pyongyang is lit... Port-au-Prince is lit... That's it:

    There are similar maps of western China and of various areas within Africa. The areas in Africa are quite vast. Also, Australia has enormous areas that simply have zero infrastructure and zero electricity/water, hence no light at night.

    However, the Norks are different in that their Dear Leader would rather have nukes than feed his people and allow them a decent level of living. They still live in unheated shacks with wood fires and lanterns.

    Even their military has prima facie serious health levels/standards.

    The soldier-dude that made a run for it in a car to the nearest point, bailed, got hit (six times, IIRC) but made it to SoKo.

    They found out his scrawny bod is riddled with worms and parasites.

    If that is what a regular sojer is walking around with... what about the runty little fuckers in primary school?
