As crippling UN sanctions continue to take their toll on the North Korean regime, Kim Jong Un and his military commanders have released their million-man army to loot and plunder the Korean countryside; stealing food and supplies in a desperate attempt to feed their starving soldiers.
According to Fox News, the food shortages inside the hermit kingdom have gotten so bad that Kim’s soldiers are now forced to steal from local residents and farmers in order to feed themselves.
“Officials carried out home searches in Paekam County to determine how much food some families had,” a North Korean source told Daily NK. “As an excuse to enter and demand bribes, they said to the residents, ‘Are we just going to let our military starve while the Americans lick their lips and prepare to eat us alive?’”
The disturbing revelation comes weeks after photos emerged of North Korea soldiers foraging for food in the forests and fields, picking seeds and roots from the ground as the international embargo against the communist regime took hold.
Although droughts and sanctions have crippled North Korea’s ability to produce food, government officials are still demanding that local farmers and producers “fulfill mandatory quotas” decided by Kim’s regime.
“These demands are pushing people to their wits’ end,” said sources from inside the hermit kingdom.
BEIJING BETRAYAL: China CAUGHT SNEAKING Oil Supplies to North Korea
South Korean authorities announced Friday it had detained a Chinese-based ship and its staff over reports the tanker was sneaking oil supplies to Kim’s regime; a violation of recent UN sanctions that barred such shipments to the communist nation.
According to UPI, officials in Seoul confirmed they had seized the Lighthouse Winmore, a ship registered in Hong Kong that allegedly smuggled over 600 tons of refined oil into North Korea last November; well after the United Nations adopted Resolution 2375 which banned the hermit kingdom from importing fuel.
President Trump weighed-in on the revelation on social media, saying he was “very disappointed” that Beijing refused to comply with the UN mandate, adding that no “friendly solution” to the North Korean crisis would be possible “if this continues.”
“Caught RED HANDED – very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea. There will never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem if this continues to happen!” Trump tweeted.
