    Default North Korean solidarity group gaining ground in North Kerry?

    No it's not an April Fool's joke. Rural Kerry seems to be a hot bed of support for Kim Jong-Un

    Anyone from North Kerry on here who can tell us more?

    Kim Jong-un has friends in the North. . . of Kerry, that is - Independent.ie

    He said reports of human rights abuses in North Korea were "absolute myths and lies", adding: "If human rights abuse is the basis for sanctions and offensive action why don't the US invade Saudi Arabia?"
    What an incredibly flawed argument. In fact, he sounds a lot like certain Piesters around here.

    The former Causeway Comprehensive Secondary School pupil added: "I'm a Marxist-Leninist and always admired the DPRK for staying true to its beliefs. While other countries, such as Russia, watered down their communist structure in a self-revisionist way, Korea stood firm."

    He said reports of human rights abuses in North Korea were "absolute myths and lies", adding: "If human rights abuse is the basis for sanctions and offensive action why don't the US invade Saudi Arabia?"

    Though he has never visited the county, the unemployed activist told me: "There are no concentration camps, the people are fed, there is free education and healthcare."
    Where have we heard of this kind of loon before?

    Isn't it amazing the things people will come out with after a few generations of inbreeding.

    A different species down there IMO.

    The KFA lists its objectives as "showing the reality of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the world
    Sure the DPRK can do that itself by allowing foreigners free and unfettered access to all parts of the country.

    Oh wait....

    I have also believed that North Korea was being falsely represented by the press, and that there was undoubtedly backwardness in North Korea and possibly outdated infrastructure and machinery due to isolationist policies, but that overall it is not as bad as people think. In fact, the pictures I saw recently showed some healthy looking north koreans standing in front of a newly opened public swimming pool.

    Maybe the press have painted a propogandist picture, of a deprived people, with outdated infrastructure and without accessible healthcare or amenities...but I still quite like North Kerry.
