    Horrific Reports of People Cooking & Eating Their Children

    While it’s certainly not the first allegation of cannibalism to come from North Korea, it’s equally as disturbing as those that preceded it. Troubling reports of a rise in starvation — and cannibalism — have emerged inside of a nation that continues to be intensely-secretive and shut off from the wider global community. According to an independent outlet called Asia Press, North Koreans are so desperate that they are increasingly turning to corpses and even murdering their own children for food.

    One man allegedly dug up his grandchild’s corpse and ate it. Another purportedly killed and boiled his child for food. Of late, yet another individual has reportedly been executed for killing two of his children for the same purposes.

    “In my village in May a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad,” one informant said of the latter incident.According to the source, the father killed his daughter while his wife was away on business. Then, he killed the son because the latter child had witnessed his sister’s murder. When the wife came back from her trip, her husband said that they now had “meat.” After becoming suspicious, she contacted authorities who later discovered parts of the children’s bodies.

    The “hidden famine,” as it has been called in North and South Hwanghae, is what appears to be driving this alleged horror. According to the Daily Mail, up to 10,000 individuals have lost their lives due to a lack of food — a figure that encapsulates the extreme desperation that may be driving the unthinkable.Of course, the secretive and insular nature of the North Korean government makes it difficult to ascertain definitively whether instances involving human beings consuming one another are actually on the rise as some sources have claimed. Asia Press, the independent outlet issuing these reports, describes itself as a media venue that is trying to be “free from any dependence on capital and authority.”

    While outlandish and unbelievable, this isn’t the first time the international community has heard similar stories. In the past, numerous reports about cannibalism have come from North Korea. The Daily Mail highlights some of these past instances: In May last year, the South Korean state-run Korean Institute for National Unification said that one man was executed after eating part of a colleague and then trying to sell the remains as mutton.One man killed and ate a girl and a third report of cannibalism was recorded from 2011.

    Another man was executed in May after murdering 11 people and selling the bodies as pork.In Oct. 2011, TheBlaze reported about Kim Hye Sook and the unbearable pain and emotional suffering that she endured during her 28-year detention in a secretive North Korean concentration camp. Brutal executions, starvation — even mothers killing and eating their children to ensure their own survival — were regular occurrences.

    In an interview with CBN News, Sook recalled a mother boiling her 9-year-old daughter. In a separate fit of desperation, a woman killed her 16-year-old son, chopped him up and took him to a butcher to obtain some corn in exchange.

    Would not a man or woman rather sacrifice their own life than do this to their children? There is some deep psychological defect in the North Koreans, a product of socialist oppression of the human mind.

    And here I weep for humanity. How do you justify all the missile test and space launches? Seriously this Kim Jong-Un deserves prosecution from International court of Justice.

    Quote:
    A member of the ruling Workers’ Party from a major city, Mrs. Park said that to feed her family, she sells cornmeal cakes from a market stall, but she complained of sluggish sales and famished children who snatch her wares from beneath a protective swatch of fabric. More than once this year, she said she walked by the lifeless bodies of those who were too weak to steal.

    “I would have given them food if I had any,” she said, looking away with shame.

    If you ask the diabolical retards- they will say this as an "acceptable sacrifices" for greater good-"equality". Every one is equally starved to death:tsk::(

    What is the Blaze.com is it something like Onion.com?

    This story has to be confirmed by some other reputed source or else this bullshit.:rolleyes:

    Famine has pushed people in East asia to eat weird things like worms, scorpions and even tree bark which have later become delicacies in China but this some what sounds redecilious.

    The Blaze is Glenn Beck's right wing website, but there are other articles about rumors of it happening.

    New rumors surface of famine-induced cannibalism in North Korea - San Jose Mercury News

    North Korean cannibalism fears amid claims starving people forced to desperate measures - Asia - World - The Independent

    The Huffington Post has it:

    Cannibalism On Rise In North Korea?

    I would hope The Onion would make such a story into a joke.

    Even though i dont deny or agree, we cant base facts from nut jobs like glenn beck who seek attention from sensational stuff.

    As for Huffington post, that to does not elaborate much, just a one liner.

    So will wait till conclusive evidence has been shown, no one is in any hurry to hear one more dastardly act by mankind.

    I would prefer to believe that there are depths to which humans would not sink for their own personal survival.

    However, the subject of eating children was the basis for a classic satire.

    That's more of a reptilian nature. Mother carries the eggs for a while, becomes bloated and heavy due to shear number of eggs and can't hunt. Eventually she sometimes ends up eating a few of those to survive. Humans on the other hand grow naturally to be altruistic. Now what i fail to understand is that humans despite having 2 more mammalian brains on top of the reptilian, resort to such extremity. Am I being given to understand that hunger trumps all?

    Yes, there is a book called "Escape from camp 14" which describes this in detail. People rarely get to escape from those prison camps (death camps actually), but this was a rare case where one young boy was able to escape and eventually defect to South Korea. There is always a trickle of defectors into the South, and over the years the world has heard enough horror stories about conditions inside NoKo. There is another book called "Nothing to envy - lives of ordinary people in North Korea".

    A few months back I went to Panmunjom (the N-S border, the "meeting room") on a guided tour and I had a South Korean girl with me. Now that guided tour had a North Korean defector as part of the "tour package", and the defector was narrating incidents about her life in NoKo. The tour guide's translation into English was pathetic and hardly understandable, and I suspected that he left out most of the stuff. So I caught hold of the defector after the tour and asked her to narrate some things again to my South Korean colleague, and my colleague did the translation. Some of the things the defector said were pretty horrifying, about the times of the great famine in the 1990s.

    If there is hell on Earth, it is in North Korea.
