Bad Neighbors


North Korea has lobbed multiple missiles toward Japan over the last few years. This week they conducted a nuclear test creating a small earthquake. Today Japan experienced another earthquake setting off speculation about a second test. North Korea is signatory to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, but is choosing to ignore it. People in North Korea are starving and in need of medicine.

Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, and America all continue to send aid in the form of: food, medicine, construction supplies, loans, etc. It seems all of this just allows Kim Jong Il to funnel more funds towards unsettling ends. Perhaps funding and aid need to be cut off until there is a revolt.

Day to day I don’t worry too much, but it is quite annoying having a neighbor like this.
