U.N. to feed North Koreans after tough winter

The United Nations World Food Program and UNICEF announced Friday plans to launch emergency operations in North Korea to feed an estimated 3.5 million people in desperate need after crop losses and a harsh winter.

Women and children will be the focus of the one-year WFP operation, which is expected to cost just over $200 million, the WFP said.

    I finished reading "Nothing to Envy" by Barbara Demick today. She chronicled the lives of 6 N. Korean defects. It is horrifying what is going on there. I cannot imagine the day to day life of a N. Korean. I believe food should be sent and pray it makes to the people, who so desparately need it. Unfortunately, chances are, it will be given to those who are within Kim Jong Il immediate circle and the military.

    Unicef should not intefere. There is no greater incentive for change than a bunch of hungry people. Not saying the change will be for good, but can it really get worse at this point?
