North Korea is not known for their humanitarian or ethical way of life due to the disgusting dictatorship of the Un family over the past 7 generations, but the new reports coming from defectors are almost beyond belief. The massive amount of nuclear testing in North Korea is not being done is any kind of way that is actually safe, and the effects are being seen on the citizens by way of what they call a “ghost disease.”
It is called that due to the fact that the North Koreans that have died from it appeared to wither away and end up looking ghostly in their illness. For years they assumed that it was due to their lack of food and poor lifestyle provided by the Un Regime. More recently it has become clear that radiation poisoning from testing and development is the actual root cause of the “ghost disease” that is killing so many.
According to Western Journal :
There are plenty of things at the top of Kim Jong Un’s agenda. Missile tests. Military parades. Gout treatment.
Nuclear safety? Not one of them. Unfortunately for Kim’s pitiable subjects, that’s taking a major toll on their already frail health.
According to NBC News, defectors from the North are describing a “ghost disease” that has spread near the nation’s nuclear test sites, almost certainly caused by radioactive fallout from nuclear tests and weapons development.
Lee Jeong Hwa, described as “middle-aged with an ashen gray complexion and deep-set dark brown eyes,” defected to the South in 2010 from the North Korean county of Kilju.
Kilju is where North Korea’s nuclear testing site, Punggye-ri, is located.
Punggye-ri played host to all six of North Korea’s nuclear tests — including one earlier this year which was powerful enough that it destabilized the underground complex and led to a tunnel collapse, killing at least 200 people.
At least at present, one assumes Punggye-ri isn’t going to be operational anytime in the near future.
That’s of little solace to the people of Kilju County, such as Lee Jeong Hwa.
“So many people died we began calling it ‘ghost disease,’” Lee said. “We thought we were dying because we were poor and we ate badly. Now we know it was the radiation.”
However, the plot thickens when you consider the complexities the conditions being suffered by Lee and other defectors.
“Lee and other defectors are adamant these tests have had a detrimental effect on their health. The scientific evidence and expert opinion, however, is not so conclusive,” NBC reported. “South Korea’s Ministry of Unification has been testing Lee and 29 other defectors from Kilju for radiation contamination. Lee told NBC News that her test results have already come back — and they’re clean.”
Does this mean that the health problems — the “ghost disease,” the reports of leukemia and other types of cancers — being reported by defectors from near the test site are all just a coincidence?
Seoul National University professor of nuclear engineering Suh Kune Yull doesn’t think so.
“I don’t think they’re lying,” Suh said. “We have to take their word, but I don’t have much reliable information.”
He added that researchers are going on a “total lack of data.”
However, the defectors are convinced the nuclear tests had something to do with it. Rhee Yeong Sil, another Kilju defector, says that “her family is sick, with headaches and vomiting, but no medicine helps.”
NBC added one final sobering note about Rhee’s experience in South Korea: “She’s surprised that in her new home, even the rights of animals are protected. But back in North Korea, she says, the health of her people is ignored.”
I would consider this an act of chemical warfare against his own people, and I am sure many others would also. There are ways to ensure the health and safety of the population even when testing these weapons, but Un could care less as long as he gets to continue playing with his explosives in his search to create a weapon that can reach and decimate the United States. This foul excuse for a human being needs to be stopped, not only for the safety of the U.S. but for the safety and preservation of those North Koreans who are being tortured and murdered daily.
