New rumors surface of famine-induced cannibalism in North Korea
North Koreans may be turning to cannibalism for survival as serious food shortages continue to wrack the infamously oppressive Asian nation, some new reports suggest.
The Sunday Times wrote that a DPRK father was allegedly put to death by firing squad, after it was discovered that he had killed and eaten two of his own children last year — during the 2012 famine, which may have killed thousands.
The Times added that citizen journalists within North Korea, employed by the AsiaPress, suspect at least 10,000 perished from starvation in provinces south of Pyongyang last year.
“While his wife was away on business he killed his eldest daughter and because his son saw what he had done, he killed his son as well," an informant told AsiaPress.
"When the wife came home he offered her food, saying ‘We have meat.’ But his wife, suspicious, notified the ministry of public security, which led to the discovery of part of their children’s bodies under the eaves.”

3. Actually, the NK military would fight hard.
The populace of NK has been throughly brainwashed for decades. They have been told, repeatedly, that they have it better than other countries. The Kims are worshipped like they are gods. Yes, the NK military will fight hard, but thankfully they would not be very effective. They don't have the money to be able to train.
