That was because it was far more profitable to grow opium for export rather then food and as a result so much land was dedicated to opium poppies that millions starved.

1. They have famines there like clockwork over the last 10 years.

2. USA and SK among others have given aid in the past, in return they sank one of SK's destroys with a torpedo attack last year. Let China deal with them.

3. Fortunately Jimmy Carter won a nobel peace prize for being a democratic president....oh wait....the award said for the nuclear disarming of north korean. LMAO.

Socialism has nothing to do with NK's famine.
Denial has jamed the lock.
