    What a nightmare. It amazes me that China still allows this to go on – they aren’t a bastion of human rights, but they still understand human suffering and embrace development. I feel so sorry for the people of North Korea. How many of them know life is better on the outside but are too terrified to speak up? How many of them don’t even know what they are missing….? The sooner Kim Jong Ill dies, the better. I wish that selfish, insane a speedy death.

      Sadly, most of the people in North Korea don’t know that life is better in other countries. North Korea is all they know and these people have been raised to believe that the other countries are evil and out to destroy North Korea. I saw a documentary where a girl got her sister out of NK but the sister insisted on going back “to a better life”.

  • Bubba

    Way to protect the persons featured in this video. NOT! What is the author thinking? Dumb. Why would anyone trust these film makers? You described their routes, methods, and showed their faces. Stay away from idiots.
