Democracy Now! report on North Korea

Part 1

Part 2

Well, it’s become clear that North Korea wants something. The last time they stamped their feet and threatened their neighbors, the US gave them fuel aid. I’m not sure it’s clear what is going on now, but they have escalated their actions by holding two journalists and sentencing them to twelve years hard labor, as well as shooting off the test missiles we are aware of.

I thought the Democracy Now report was interesting, and wanted to let people know that overall, people here do not feel an eminent threat. For the most part, it seems locals folks were much more worried about swine flu than getting blown up by North Korea.
