North Korea "facing food crisis"

This article highlights the major humanitarian crisis facing North Korea. Since North Korea continues to pursue a nuclear program, many countries refuse to send food. This policy could lead to major food crisis that will affect the people more than the government. Kim Jong Il may not give into to such international pressure, and could continue to develop nuclear weapons while the people starve. The "dear leader" has put his country is a precarious place by refusing the discuss his weapon arsenal. If famine conditions grow worse and the people are deprived of food, Kim Jong Il may face retaliation from his people.

It would be interesting to see what actual opposition to Communist rule is actually going on in North Korea today. It is the perfect environment for a successful Guerilla campaign, with the mountains and all. If anyone sees any articles discussing this topic, they should post it.
