I am not daft enough to suggest that the West could do anything about this, but would have thought that at least an expression of disgust in some way, rather than just ignoring the barbaric nature of this Dictatorship.
should i also be digusted with the west for t problems, ie drunkards, peopl who wee when they are runk, yobs shouting, people getting mugged, pensoners losing their pensions, cost of living going up and up. famiies who cant afford to feed their children etc etc
"...would have thought that at least an expression of disgust in some way, rather than just ignoring the barbaric nature of this Dictatorship"
Expressions of disgust are completely wasted on regimes like the one in North Korea. Just watch any of the many YouTube videos showing concerts and public displays, and you'll see Korean citizens clapping and jumping with apparent joy whenever their leader appears. I say 'apparent' because of course these people are terrified - they know that they are being filmed, and that the authorities will seek out and punish anyone who appears to clap less than enthusiastically.
It's a totalitarian state of the very worst kind, and there's very little that we can do about it, other than express our disapproval of their complete disregard for human rights. We do that on a regular basis, but it has not, and will not have any effect whilst a viciously cruel megalomaniac runs the country.
I realise all of that, but felt the need to mention this on this World-wide Forum in order to give it more publicity - I know nothing can be done, other than voice my personal concern, being aware of course that this will make not the slightest bit of difference!
Thanks for all the comments. I will leave this to the Forum now, as I am not in fact a very talkative type.
