    The following information was released by Radio Free Asia:
    North Korea may have abducted up to 180,000 foreigners from 14 countries over the last six decades, much more than what has been reported, according to a new report by a U.S.-based human rights watchdog.
    Hundreds of foreign abductees whose identities are unknown may remain in closely-monitored detention in the reclusive Stalinist nation, said the report released by The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) on Thursday.
    The report, entitled "Taken! North Korea's Criminal Abduction of Citizens of Other Countries," said North Korea's history of abducting foreigners is not restricted to Japan and limited to a small group of people as the regime would have the international community believe.
    HRNK unveiled the report at a press briefing in Washington that was attended by the Japanese ambassador and diplomats from South Korea, Thailand, and the Netherlands.
    North Korean leader Kim Jong Il admitted the existence of an abduction program to then-Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi during the latter's visit to Pyongyang in September 2002, but sought to downplay its scale.
    The report said that while Kim eventually disclosed the abduction of 13 Japanese nationals, his admission "did not tell the whole story" and left "misleading impressions."
    "The impression deliberately left by Kim Jong Il was that the number of abductions was small, carried out by a handful of perpetrators in disparate actions and limited in scope," the report said.

    this has been going on - on a regular basis in japan - people r abducted on the beach and drugged - they wake up shipped in a creat to n. korea - many committed suicide - we have these moron amerikans going to n. korea again to see why they cant feed themselves - the reason n. korea cant feed their own people is because there r no farmers
    all farmers are just state workers = who wants to work their ass off for the state = bus amerika will feed them again ! = and our farmers in calif cant get water to grow crops because of some communist green law not approved by congress

    The State Department has issued a long and detailed advisory warning on travel to North Korea. Just one paragraph and a link for other idiosyncracies that will get you in trouble while you are there if you aren't careful.

    Hey leave the North alone! They just need workers for the joint manufacturing facility that they operate with South Korea.

    Been doing it for 7 years now.

    Don't pay any attention to that south korean troll. He spams this crap to 100's of message boards. His flag waving, war mongering stupidity has become tiresome.

    The CIA Factbook shows that North Korea has its finger in every illicit drug trade, R.C. They engage in warmongering and threatening other countries, namely ours. And the State Department warns Americans of a lot of unfair dangers they could face while there with limited representation by the Swiss Embassy for their interests while incarcerated if under any kind of suspicion. Taking a picture with a camera is tantamount to espionage in the country. They do not care for foreigners and will imprison them at the drop of a hat.

    The real key to ending this gross tyranny is China (tyranny lite), as long as China views it in her interest to keep Killer Kim and the Hermit Kingdom alive, it will remain.

    The other key is South Korea, the Sunshine Policy is a complete failure, a clear line must be drawn that no cooperation is possible with the current regime.

    The real reason North Korea even pursued the Sunshine Policy is in an attempt to drive a strategic wedge between South Korea and the USA.
