"UN food agency calls for aid boost to North Korea"

"The United Nations World Food Programme, which feeds 6.5m North Koreans, is imploring the US, Japan and South Korea to increase their donations to the agency despite the political stand-off over the North's nuclear weapons programme.
Aid agencies report that food shortages are reaching a critical stage at the same time as prices of staple goods are spiralling, making life even more difficult for North Koreans, among the world's poorest people.

“We had very good donations until last year we were able to feed all 6.5m beneficiaries for several months, but now the supplies are running out and we are facing a very critical situation with food supplies,” said Anthony Banbury, Asia director for the WFP. “We've already had to cut off assistance to 1m elderly people and 900,000 women and children.”...


As long as Kim stops the WFP from distributing food freely and at discretion, I bet one can be sure that much of the food aid will go to the 1 million men army through NK distributors.

Feeding Norks unfortunately hasn´t paid off in any way during the last two decades.
To the contrary; and it is strange that we live in a world where far away countries (that are frequently threatened) are supposed to feed their declared enemies.
Feeding NK prolongues Kim´s evil reign.
Ending his bad reign with a bang of some sort would help to free the suffering and starving population.
And I wonder why China, South Korea and Japan are not doing it - together.
