N. Korea Releases US

North Korea releases list of U.S. ?human rights abuses?: ?The U.S. is a living hell?

On Wednesday, KCNA released an article titled "News Analysis on Poor Human Rights Records in U.S." It brought up a number of points, including racial discrimination, unemployment, surveillance and poverty. "The U.S. is the world's worst human right abuser and tundra of a human being's rights to existence," the essay concludes.
 
So what is the U.S. actually doing wrong? Here are the key points from the criticism:

?"Under the citizenship act, racialism is getting more severe in the U.S. The gaps between the minorities and the whites are very wide in the exercise of such rights to work and elect."

?"The U.S. true colors as a kingdom of racial discrimination was fully revealed by last year's case that the Florida Court gave a verdict of not guilty to a white policeman who shot to death an innocent black boy."

?"That's why 52 percent of the Americans have said that racism still exists in the country while 46 percent contended that all sorts of discrimination would be everlasting."

?"The U.S. is a living hell as elementary rights to existence are ruthlessly violated."

?"At present, an average of 300,000 people a week are registered as unemployed, but any proper measure has not been taken."

?"The housing price soared 11.5 percent last year than 2012 and 13.2 percent in January this year than 2013, leaving many people homeless."

?"The number of impoverished people increased to 46.5 millions last year, and one sixth of the citizens and 20-odd percent of the children are in the grip of famine in New York City."

?"All sorts of crimes rampant in the U.S. pose a serious threat to the people's rights to existence and their inviolable rights."

?"The U.S. government has monitored every movement of its citizens and foreigners, with many cameras and tapping devices and even drones involved, under the pretext of 'national security.'"

?"Meanwhile, bills on easing arms control were adopted in various states of the country, boosting murderous crimes. As a result, the U.S. has witnessed an increasing number of gun-related crimes in all parts of the country and even its military bases this year. In this regard, the United Nations on April 10 put the U.S. on the top of the world list of homicide rates."

?"The U.S. also has 2.2 millions of prisoners at present, the highest number in the world. For lack of prisons on the part of the government, individuals are providing detention facilities to make money."

?"A Russian TV said that in the U.S. the wealthy classes are now keen on the investment in providing private prisons for their high profit and so more people will be imprisoned."

?"Its chief executive, Obama, indulges himself in luxury almost every day, squandering hundred millions of dollars on his foreign trip in disregard of his people's wretched life."

What about Habeas Corpus?

The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.

I wonder how hard it was for them to write that with a straight face.

I wonder how hard it would be for the US fellows to respond all these with a cold/hot face.

No single critic is incorrect, shame they omitted "human slaughtering" electric chair capital punishment, as themselves have many, too :)

No one could argue the U.S. has a spotless record; no country has one, but the idea of N.K. being critical of anyone else's shortcomings is ######in' absurd.

Things that North Korea has done wrong:

 

1. Isolated themselves from the rest of the world due to a militaristic and jingoistic policy.

2. Allowed its people to starve through years of agricultural malpractice.

3. Let nepotism rule a country.

4. Let a person who was clearly not fit to lead lead a country.

5. Created a cult of personality that is near theocratic.

6. Completely lied to the rest of the world about its autocratic government and practices.

7. Implemented such practices that would not be out of place in an Orwellian society.

8. Let newspapers run a headline that Kim-Jong-IL died saving his country from a dragon. (This is just hyperbole, actually heard it from someone as a joke) 

9. Let said leader run the country into the ground by letting the military rule the country, destroying any hope of government/social reform.

 

There are probably hundreds more, but that's what North Korea has done. Compared to that, the U.S list is surprisingly tame. I am the first person to admit that U.S. has done bad things and would probably talk about said events at great length, but I don't think N.K is in any morally superior position or standing to make judgments on another country. Fix these things and maybe I'll listen to you. Dear Leader, you're an idiot.

 

-Sincerely, A U.S. Citizen.

The irony of NK criticizing ANYONE, let alone the USA, on its human rights record, is not lost on me.

Ever hear the list of accolades the NK propaganda machine put out for Kim Jong IL ?

They are hilarious - accrediting him with superhuman feats things that sound like a crazy L Ron Hubbard book  -
and those people over there believe every word, they have no reason not too.   Very sad.

According to his official biographers, his birth in Baekdu Mountain was prophesied by a swallow and heralded with a double rainbow and a new star in the heavens.
he first picked up a golf club in 1994, at North Korea's only golf course, and shot a 38-under par round that included no fewer than 11 holes in one. Satisfied with his performance, he reportedly immediately declared his retirement from the sport.

 

some of the funnier ones

I wouldn't have thought it was that difficult given that it's true.

Coming from people whose leaders built massive monuments to themselves, while their people starve...

^Nope, it is not always the case :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An?tkabir  Turkey, Ataturk's Mausoleum. Then poor Turkish people built it and they would die for HIM.

On 10 November 2013, 1,089,615 people visited An?tkabir which is the new all-time record.35a9c2f.png

How are either of these stories relevant to each other? Or did you just want an opportunity to share some info about Ataturk? They're not comparable considering Ataturk didn't sound like a cruel dictator, unlike the leaders of N.K.

 

 

 

 Atat?rk then embarked upon a program of political, economic, and cultural reforms, seeking to transform the former Ottoman Empire into a modern, secular, and democratic nation-state. Under his leadership, thousands of new schools were built, primary education was made free and compulsory, and women were given equal civil and political rights, while the burden of taxation on peasants was reduced.[3] 

 

Ataturk sounds like someone who brought his nation into modernity, not someone who held it back.

The funny thing is, most of it is true. I wish I could laugh at the irony, but that'd be ironic as well.

Anyone who agrees with all of these statements is welcome to live in North Korea.

@compl3x, it was off topic, you should have read what referred to was, Ataturk the greatest revolutionary leader ever (to me), I just had to response your post's "leaders build big monument for themselves, but people poor" part". on this NK and her dictator post, I do not need to talk more.

There are more atrocities and human rights violations in NK than there are World wide on a daily basis.

Yet here they are standing up and pointing the finger?

What about all the sordid hell`s that are brought the table every day in your work camps NK?

Or the fact you cant guarantee any basic human rights to 97% of your population? You know basic things like water and a right to exist free from oppression and torture?

You only carry on existing NK because China/Russia allows you too!!

^ They only do this sort of thing to try to distract from their own violations, and to make other countries seem far worse to their people.

How is most of the stuff on the list true? Maybe I'm completely ignorant of the country I'm living in but at best it seems extremely exaggerated and even that is pushing it.

Although I might agree some of it is true to a degree, I still wouldn't want to live in NK for any amount of money or anything, ever!

No doubt this serves a function as propaganda. I don't think N.K. are releasing this for the rest of the world's benefit. Like you said, it is probably being used to show their own people that the U.S., a country despised by North Koreans, is going through hardships, too.
