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.

    "There's a difference between the people and their government?"
    The North Korean people fought very intensely to have that kind of government.
    "Be careful what you fight for: you might get it."
    In any case, because it's a Communist government, there will be plenty of food, because they citizens will all share equally.

    Cesar some ppl who let the trolls get to them at some time acts like them.

    We don't want that, so let little pizza pizza have his/her way.

    BTW what's wrong with feeding the children? Not at Cesar.

  6. What?


    "Cesar some ppl who let the trolls get to them at some time acts like them."

    Well, the only part right about that sentence is Cesar is the troll. He's on this thread and every thread with vile language and insulting people. So, people try a straight forward approach to get him to quit. And that doesn't work. So people have to resort to playing his sick mind games to get him to just go away. And that doesn't work either.

    Is there even a real Cesar? Or is it one or many people using the name Cesar to disrupt and destroy these forums?

    One thing is sure, Cesar and his cohorts need to go find another place to cause havoc, hurl vile language at people and disrupt conversations. There are some truly sick, demented people in this world and the Cesar(s) are it.

      Quite right,What? The people you're talking about are the Tea Partiers,including the one who keeps on posting his profanity under Cesar's name. Yes,there is a true Cesar here and he's not one of them as he keeps trying to say.

    I've been reading these posts here and after seeing all this Tea Party lingo plastered on this web page,I feel like vomiting. Have the right-wing,ignorant,foul speaking,anti-intellectual Tea Partiers gain that much influence already? I suppose so,sadly enough.

    Cesar and I like going camping Brokeback Mountain style. We both wear our drag queen gear and drill each other in the pooper while watching our queen Sarah Palin. If anyone wants to go camping with Cesar or myself feel free to call us at 555-HO-MO.
    It's so awesome being a gay tea party supporter.

    I like getting it on with boys Michael Jackson style (if you know what I mean). I like a big black wiener in my mouth whenever I can get it. If I can't get a darkie, I just settle for my gay butt buddies, Jazzzzzzz and Cesar(they know how I like it).

      Would you kindly post under a different name,please. The one you're using now is rather sacrilegeous and disrespectful,I don't mean the name of Jesus itself,of course, but the use of it is.
