Kim is desperate. His country is crumbling around him; his soldiers are eating each other; spring floods have destroyed most of his food crops and war is the only money maker he has.

The situation is a slow moving nightmare which reportedly began in 2011, when the situation was so bad, government functionaries were blackmailing food vendors and farmers for rice to feed the army. the situation has gotten progressively worse since then.  

This year, summer floods have devastated the food crops. Over  400,000 children are severely malnourished.  Others have simply faded away and starved to death.

North Koreans have been smuggling video out of the country. One shows a Communist Party official demanding rice from a market vendor. Another shows a starving girl, who is looking for grass to eat.  The once powerful north Korean Army was once immune to food shortages. The leaders fed the army first, which makes sense: no dictatorship can afford to have a starving army.  That’s a good way to get deposed and shot. 

Unfortunately, right now, there isn’t enough food to keep the military wolf off his back. Which brings us to this current threat level. The North’s leaders are playing an old game: threaten to shoot missiles at South Korea, threaten American military interests in the Pacific reagion, and wait for Uncle Same to send food.  But this time, Kim may be more desperate than his father ever was.

His army is starving. Some of the military are resortiing to cannibalism.  At least one soldier killed a comrade, ate some of the flesh and tried to sell the rest.  Government food handouts have been small or non-existent for 2 years. Half of the army is malnurourished.

Smuggled footage of the hermit nation reveals food shortages, government blackmail of food vendors and farmers, and drastically reduced food rations. Kim;s back is up against the wall. He could start a war simply to reduce his population and give the army an enemy to focus on. 

Some of the footage comes from desperate North Koreans who smuggle the information out. The fooftage below shows the escalation of the crisis, where communist functionaries are now extorting grain from market vendors.

june 2011

In the footage, a party official is demanding a stallholder make a donation of rice to the army.

“My business is not good,” complains the stallholder.

“Shut up,” replies the official. “Don’t offer excuses.”

It is clear that the all-powerful army – once quarantined from food shortages and famine – is starting to go hungry.

“Everybody is weak,” says one young North Korean soldier.”Within my troop of 100 comrades, half of them are malnourished,” he said. MOREHERE


In one account, a male guard who could not bear his hunger killed his colleague using an ax, ate some of the human flesh and sold the remainder in the market by disguising it as mutton, the report said, without giving any further details such as when the alleged crime occurred.


JUNE 2011


 North Korea has drastically cut public food handouts as it heads towards a new hunger crisis with people again eating grass to survive, one of the most experienced aid workers in the isolated nation said.

Food rations have been cut to as low as 150 grammes (5.3 ounces) a day per person in some parts of the country as foreign donations collapse and higher international prices make imports more expensive, said Katharina Zellweger, head of a Swiss government aid office in Pyongyang. SOURCE


There are some secret political dissidents in North Korea who secretly film what’s REALLY going on in North Korea (such as starvation and public executions) and then smuggle it out of the country to be broadcasted. This is one of the videos, apparently of a starving girl looking for grass to eat. 


another one from inside north korea, of a woman who tried to escape but was caught and brought back. here she is questioned and tortured by a border guard.

    a nation that can’t even feed its army is a desperate nation

    • Quantum Kev

      That’s exactly what I keep saying. And desperate people sometimes take desperate measures. I think the NK situation is much more serious and potentially disastrous than many people think. Time will tell.

      • muckracker1

        I agree; i have a lot of friends who just don’t get it; “he’s insane” they say
        crazy like a fox IMHO

  • Rcj

    why is this article from 2011… that what is written in the article.. :?:

    • muckracker1

      follow the links and it will take u to original; this is a slow motion catastrophe that is 3 years in the making

  • taomaster

    Drop Alex Jones in NK, and let the feeding begin.

    • muckracker1

      with salt n peppah or BBQ sauce? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • retiredpatriot

    This could very well be America if things go bad, never think you are immune ,,

    • Numpty

      They could always steal alex jones’ 25 years stash of tangy tangerines. LOL, just kidding.

  • Lord Drek

    Absolute nightmare.

  • wvbowhunter

    If this kid loses it then he wil fire a nuke. Communism is destroying this part of Korea. Crumbling of this nation will result in somebody from the north doing something stupid. They can’t heat their homes nor feed themselves alone, China has been footing the bill for decades now to prove communism works, but we see the end result don’t we? If this is true then nobody has anything to fear from the NK army. Why don’t theyh all run to the south?

  • Fianna

    I dont fear the people so much, I see them throwing up the white flag as soon as they see the enemy.
    But High Priestest Un Kim just may commit suicide by nuclear weapon if we keep bullying him :lol:

    • Top Hat

      How are we bullying him?

      • Fianna

        Come on now, by Barry’s reasoning for wanting gun control, drone monitoring, reasoning for not wanting voter ID laws, etc.
        Lets also take into account the progressive/liberal view on bullying, the media, and politicians are doing nothing more to Un Kim.
        Its just an adult version :wink: Keep poking the kid who has nukes :wink:
        This is more proof that shows long political talking doesnt work, this issue should have been delt with back in his fathers days, but nope, war solves nothing and talking has worked sooooo well!

  • crabby

    cool a real zombie army

  • Nam Marine

    Tough crap for the little yellow punk !

  • pigsdofly

    I forwarded this info and links. I can’t say to whom, but you may see some changes. I can’t guarantee this, but ALL we have is hope.

  • JohnnybeGood

    It’s strange that Dennis Rodman just came from over there. What a fool! Man, do your research before you start complimenting a dictator and a communist regime. This is a dangerous situation. It could set off WW3 : (

  • Anonymous

    What a bunch of Bull.
    Heard the same story 60 years ago when Germans were eating kids.
    You guys must be nuts. Only in America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ana

    What I want to know is isn”t there ONE man in that country who can take the scum out?

  • Ana

    Hey, beforeitnews, that video is about 10 years old.

  • Republic of Texas

    This is what makes this whole situation so dangerous. At this point, NK has little to nothing to lose by drawing the US and SK into war.

  • AnuKnocky

    Kim Jong Un’s Korea will soon be finished.
