These days no famine has to happen. The end result of these sactions is not that North Korea collapses or that Kim Jong-il does not live it up.
It is that the people die in the thousands!
I think we should flood the country with food aid, who the heck cares where the North Koreans think it comes from?
They could think its from Kim Jong-il, Bush, God, Buddah or whoever for all I care.

No! We should fund the South Koreans to invade North Korea then feed the people. It's not like that i don't feel sorry for many of these innocent people however I'm not perpared to send money or food to a dictatorship such as North Korea only for 90% of it to land in the hands of the Communist elite. In other words the people still starve & the conditions do not change.

If we invaded it would take a massive first strike that would kill thousands.
The North Koreans masses are starving now.
Your want to make the civilians suffer because a minority contols most of the country?

But if they are not suffering under the communist regime, in their mind, communism is working.
I agree in sending food but put a huge Maple Leaf on it and spell out Canada in Korean. If they even know what Canada is.

That is precisely what would happen.

I disagree Kim lives like a Tyrant and i believe Canada,USA and South Korea should invade the North to END the North Koreans Misery ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Invading and occupying the country would kill alot more people on both sides and cost alot more money.
I still think we shoudl overwhelm them with food aid.

So the question then becomes, does freedom have any value? Is there a price for freedom, and if there is, who is willing to pay it? Likewise, what is the cost of misery, and is that worth ending?

The question is who suffers.
In a famine or a military intervention the North Korean civilians suffer the most.

So if their suffering is equal, whether there is war or famine, why not try to free them?

I would suggest that suffering without end, as is the case as long as North Korea is under the rule of Lil' Kimmy, is worse than suffering that would have a definable end, such as during a conflict.

Consigning a country to endless suffering does not seem very progressive to me. Giving food to North Korea will ensure that the North Korean Army is well fed, nothing more.

With the incredibly fertile land they live in... why don't they have enough food??

Giving handouts doesn't solve anything...

This proposal is eerily similar to the ol' oil-for-food program, don't you think?

Invading and Occupying a Country is the only option in today's world.....Tell me Fascist HOw many More NK's will have to die before the world does something? I know for sure many Iraqi's suffer under Uday and Qasy's Crazed Terror while Saddam lived like a King. TO be honest a Military Solution will free many North Koreans from Communist Slavery.

Oh yeah the sancations on Iraq worked really well?
who did it hurt?

"UNICEF blames the sanctions for the deaths of more than 500,000 Iraqi children under 5 since 1991."
The sancations, for which we have blood on our hands for, killed more people than Saddams kids ever did.

If Saddam hadn't spent all the money he had on military ventures and over-the-top palaces all over the land, his people would never have had to endure this.

Had he abided by the terms of the treaty he signed at the end of the gulf war, they wouldn't have had to suffer through this.

Had their leader done his job and protected his people instead of clutching to power, they would have had better lives.

Seriously, think about it for a moment...

Would you have prefered to have financed his military ventures and chemical weapons tests on the kurds? His agression to neighbouring states? His hatred of the west?
