    On the contrary, I think he's brilliant; to be able to do what he does and do it so well that even the superpowers can do nothing about it. BUT.... he is f(ph)ucking heartless.

    Wise? He ought to have Regime Change stamped on his ass. That man is guilty of indirect genocide.

    DPRKs children ain't the only ones suffering in the world. If u're gonna get sad over and over again, u're gonna be extremely tired at the end.

    See, learn, think of a workable solution to help these people rather getting all heart wrenched. Tears won't help to alleviate people's suffering.

    Total mental insanity doesn't simply mean that one have to destroy the world along with himself.

    The ability to empathise and shed tears for the down trodden and the unfortunate separates us from animals... The children are showing their humanity...

    Something we need more in our society...

    U're gonna be very, very tired shedding all those tears.

    Doing something physically to help rather than simply cry enough to fill the 7 seas would be a feasible way out.

    I don't really look at words all the time through a narrow perspective of a 3000 page dictionary. Prefer to see it in a broader sense. The process of discourse within a human mind goes beyond the lexicons.

    That's taking 1 step beyond the physical.

    If we do not know how to empathise with those children in North Korea... Where would we find the moltivation to actually help?

    I am not saying you are wrong... I agree with Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk direction you are coming from but do not under-value empathy...
