North Korea’s getting worse. That’s the short version. Deserting North Korean soldiers are telling stories about how even the army is going hungry and that officers are either stockpiling food or planning how to flee to China. Anti-government graffiti is starting to decorate statues of the Dear Leader. Russia just started maneuvers on the North Korean border to test their preparation in the event of a mass wave of North Korean refugees coming their way. Rather than opening up, the guys at the top of North Korea are digging in deeper. My guess is if they hit bedrock, they’ll blast it so the can continue digging deeper still.
