Tyrants of North Korea use deadly nerve gas on own citizens, may operate experimental gas chambers Story dated 27 April 2005
According to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a human rights organization known for tracking down Nazi war criminals, is reporting of institutional human rights abuses by North Korea. They have been collecting testimony from escaped political prisoners and other defectors from North Korea. "One man, a 55-year-old chemist, claimed he was in charge of an experiment to test the effect of deadly nerve gas on political prisoners." That's just great -- and it's not isolated. "Other defectors told . . . of "mass starvations, gruesome experimentations, and yes, . . . gas chambers."
Alright, North Korea, China, Zimbabwe . . . anyone want to add to this list? What irks me the most is that our own United States government, which is supposed to be a paragon of human rights awareness, still respects these regimes as at least semi-legitimate powers (China has full diplomatic recognition -- I still don't understand that.). I wonder if North Korea is going to get a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Commission, soon? _____________________________________________
