Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Killing the message receiver

Some North Korea news-

North Korea has increased its public executions against cell phone users and those who circulate outside information in the communist country, a South Korean government think tank said Thursday.

The phenomenon of executions of those who "circulate South Korean leaflets and sell videos and use cell phones are on the rise," the South's government-affiliated Korea Institute for National Unification think tank said in a white paper on the North's human rights conditions. No exact figures were given.

North Koreans are officially banned from communicating with the outside world but some of them listen to foreign news and use cell phones through Chinese communication networks, according to North Korean defectors in South Korea. The use of cell phones in North Korea is banned though some are smuggled into the North by Chinese who have links with South Koreans.
Residents of the hermit kingdom certainly don't have to fear those gadgets causing brain tumors(Sarcastic laughter time). What it all amounts to is the Kim regime keeping a tight lid on any information coming from outside sources into his country. When you're a ruthless and paranoid despot who uses propaganda as one means of staying in power, you must at the same time prevent your citizens from learning the truth. That can be dangerous to a ruler's health.
