Time for South Korea, Japan, Taiwan to go nuclear. You have to meet force with force or the threat of it on equal footing.

I had to listen to it to recognize it. Unbelievably, incomprehenisbly bad piece of music....although the singer had really white teeth.

In general, 80's music was a wasteland. There were exceptions.

Video: Defector Shot 5 Times As He Flees North Korea


JOHN SEXTONPosted at 4:01 pm on November 22, 2017

A North Korean soldier took his life in his hands last week when he decided to defect across the border with South Korea. In a video released by South Korea Tuesday, the soldier can be seen driving and then running for his life as his fellow soldiers try to shoot him. From Fox News:

At a live TV briefing, the command released dramatic video showing the unidentified soldier speeding down a tree-lined road past shocked North Korean soldiers, who begin to run after him. He crashes the jeep near the line that divides North and South in the so-called “truce village” of Panmunjom, where North and South Korean soldiers face each other at their closest distance just feet away.

Soldiers from the North sprint to the area, firing their weapons at the defector; one hurries across the dividing line before running back to the northern side. South Korean soldiers then crawl up to the defector, who has fallen injured in a mass of leaves against a small wall. They drag him to safety as North Korean troops gather on their side of the line…

U.S. Army Col. Chad G. Carroll, a spokesman for the U.N. command, said the North violated the armistice by “one, firing weapons across the MDL, and two, by actually crossing the MDL temporarily,” referring to the military demarcation line that bisects the Koreas.


The defector was shot five times and was on a breathing machine for a while, but after two surgeries he has regained consciousness and is expected to survive. Here’s a shortened version of the escape (if you want to see more there’s a complete video here):



Why would a defector risk being shot by his own fellow soldiers to escape? Last week, Fox had a report on the treatment of the defector. South Korean doctors were shocked to find dozens of parasites living inside his body:

Lee Cook-jong, the defector’s lead surgeon, showed photos of the parasitic worms, including an 11-inch long worm found in the man’s digestive tract.

“In my over 20 year-long career as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a textbook,” Lee told reporters.


There are photos at the link above if you really want to be grossed out the day before Thanksgiving. There was a story at the BBC yesterday about treatment of women in the North Korean military which apparently includes frequent rape by male superior officers. In short, conditions are so bad that it’s amazing more people aren’t risking their lives to escape.

South Korean trauma surgeon Lee Cook-Jong operated on the soldier and says he found dozens of parasitic worms in his digestive tract, as well as uncooked corn; a sign of malnutrition.

The soldier is 24 years old, but at just 5 feet 5 inches and weighing 132 pounds, he is significantly smaller than an average 18-year-old in South Korea. Doctors have reportedly diagnosed him with tuberculosis and hepatitis B.

Last April, CBS News visited North Korea as it staged one of its elaborate military parades. Many of the soldiers we saw looked more like children -- likely the result of a brutal famine in the North during the 1990s.

Quote:
“He’s a pretty nice guy,” said lead surgeon John Cook-Jong Lee, who has been operating and caring for the 24-year-old. Oh has become a focus of worldwide attention after he was shot and badly wounded by fellow North Korean soldiers as he scrambled across the border in the demilitarised zone (DMZ) that separates North and South on 13 November.

Medical teams have worked for days to remove the shards of at least four bullets from Oh’s body, stitch up his shredded organs, and treat pre-existing conditions including tuberculosis, hepatitis B, and a case of massive intestinal worms, Lee said.

“He’s a quite strong man,” said Lee.

Since Oh’s defection, North Korea appeared to have replaced all its security guards on the border, an intelligence source in the South told Yonhap news agency on Thursday.

Lee said that when the defector arrived in an American military helicopter at the hospital – which is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and is used to treat VIP visitors such as visiting US presidents – he came with zero personal information.

On the flight in, American army flight medics had fought to keep Oh alive, jabbing a large needle into his chest to treat a collapsed lung.

Oh was immediately wheeled into a diagnostic room where doctors confirmed he was suffering from massive internal bleeding. “We knew then that we didn’t have time to hesitate,” Lee said.

Two major surgeries were required to remove the bullets and patch Oh back together, and the medical team pumped as much as 12 litres of blood transfusions into his body. The normal body has less than half that much blood.

“He told me that he is so thankful for South Koreans for saving his life and giving him that much blood,” Lee said.

Lee has been playing South Korean pop music and American films and TV shows for his patient, but has not exposed him to any news coverage.

Among the shows, Oh showed a liking for the French-American thriller Transporter 3, comedy Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman, and the crime-solving TV series CSI, Lee said.

Well, I saw an article which estimated that his medical bills are going to top $99,000, so they have to cut corners somewhere (aka Bruce Almighty).

Actually, $99,000 sounds pretty cheap.
I doubt that any US hospital could treat a patient with similar health maladies for anything close to that amount.

I suspect the RK and US military intell guys will readily manage to extract far more than $100,000 worth of information from him.

Sad when a kingdom like DPRK even exists. It is an affront to humanity which honestly should be forcibly dismantled.
