NK slaughters 60

I was listening to the Hugh Hewitt's radio program. He had Claudia Rosett (from Opinion as a guest. She is very informative on the UN and it's failures. I heard her say that last month the Chinese government, who is a signatory to the refugee assylum act, returned 60 poor N. Korean refugees to be doomed to the death penalty.

The sixty people were executed. Eight of them were executed publicly to warn the others. There has been a voice of dissent against the Jerk Leader, and it is getting louder. Not only are these people starving to death, they are made to work in camps (prison) and are tortured if they successfully escape but are caught. That is, if they are not executed.

That is the price they pay for trying to escape so they can have food to eat. What is it you were complaining about? Does it compare?

The only way the UN is going to do anything to stop this is if we make noice, and a lot of it. Write and call your Congresspeople and Senators toll free at (877) 762-8762. The White House number is (202) 456-1111.
