Reminds me of the story about the guy who was training his horse to eat less. Every day he'd give the horse a little less food, just a little bit less, so the horse wouldn't notice. Every day, a little bit less.

His plan was working beautifully. But then, just when he had the horse trained to eat almost nothing, came unexpected bad luck. The horse died.

The NorKs only care about their people when they have propaganda value. They already have at least 700,000 and possibly up to 2 million people in slave labor camps, many who's only crime was their grand- or great grandparents weren't sufficiently loyal to the regime.

When you can't/won't feed them, give them diet pills instead.

Well, they can claim there are no obese North Koreans, so they must have a healthier diet. That ought to count for something. Perhaps Michael Moore can do a film about the North Korean weight loss program.

Remember the NorKs' solution for famine: it is your patriotic duty to tighten your belt before eating to avoid stomach cancer.

Didn't the Nazis try this during WW2 ? I believe I saw a History Channel documentary called Nazi Super Soldiers.
