North Korean readers are advised to stock up on roots to chew. Their communist slave state is headed for another famine:
In a proclamation that will strike fear into the hearts of the North Korean people, state media has ordered the citizenry to prepare for a new “arduous march”.
The term was first coined by the North Korean leadership in 1993 as a metaphor for the four-year famine that decimated the nation from 1994.
The famine – in which as many as 3.5 million of the nation’s 22 million people died – was brought on by economic mismanagement, natural disasters, the collapse of the Soviet bloc and the consequent loss of aid, combined with the regime’s insistence on continuing a life of luxury and feeding the military.
Now, less than one month after the United Nations Security Council voted in favour of new sanctions against North Korea for its recent nuclear and missile tests, Pyongyang has announced a nationwide campaign to save food.
“The road to revolution is long and arduous”, an editorial in the state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper stated on Monday. “We may have to go on an arduous march, during which we will have to chew the roots of plants once again”.
Citizens are being forced to “donate” scarce food to the government, and there has been a crackdown on open-air markets.
Meanwhile, in South Korea there is plenty to eat. In the USA, communist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders enjoys widespread support.
