"The United Nations Command in control of the border between the two Koreas released dramatic video on Tuesday of what happened when a North Korean soldier defected to the South on Nov. 13.
The video shows the defector speeding south in a jeep before getting out, being shot at least five times by North Korean soldiers pursuing him and then being dragged to safety by South Korean soldiers.
The surveillance video also showed one of the North Korean guards step across the demarcation line between the two countries while chasing the defector, in violation of a cease-fire agreement.”*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
Hey Cenk, have you worked out that you were completely wrong about foreign banks refusing U.S. clients and their money yet?
Speaking of which, since you said that, US renunciations of citizenship have double yet again.
If Kim Jong-un cared for his people he would lay down his arms and missiles or come to some sort of agreement and reach out for helping his people from other nations, even America and Britain, Russia etc, etc. As you reported North Korea has no money, they have nothing apart from wasting their money on nuclear weaponry and launching ballistic missiles etc. Instead of using his head and asking for help Kim Jong-un would rather threaten you Americans and also the world, and if he had a brain he would know asking for help regarding his country's problems would be more beneficial to him his nation. Instead Kim Jong-un goes about things in the wrong way. I hope that the defector survives, who knows he may have vital intelligence to pass on regarding Kim Jong-un's regime that is important for the world. It seems like the North Korean soldiers were risking everything to shoot the defector dead, even crossing the demilitarized zone line and risking war with South Korea. It was like they were trying everything to stop the defector and you gotta wonder why they were prepared to cross that important line. I really believe that the North Korean defector has important information that North Korea doesn't want anyone to know.
How quickly do people forget that, America and Russia started all the bullshit in the world. They put people against people, they divided and conquer. America and her friends are the only one to have the big bombs(Jews). America is white. White people hat earth.
Osafo D'Zulu america and russia exploited the hate that was already their. The north koreans wanted communism and the south wanted capitalism. All the superpowers did was back the side they wanted to win.
Anna was right about the hepatitis. Cent was wrong by brining up dirty needles. I bet it would be harder to find a dirty needel in N.korea than a clean one. Hep C is spread through blood the others as Anna said is from things such as dirty water and food.
Lasna34 Just who are the two whores that started the bullshit between North and South Korea in the first place, Russia and?. Why are all these small poor countries picking big rich America? The North Korean are not black Africans or the Native Americans. North Korean will kick American ground forces asses.
Far from that I gotta justify myself to you.. my comments are on every race baiting video, on every white hating video, on every 'regressive agenda points' video. I don't give 2fucks about people who defend Young Ottomans, you are more pathetic then they are(oh but less famous and poorer).
RegTarg011 here's how I know you are an absolute piece of trash troll. If you actually cared about the content The Young Turks was putting out there, then you would comment on videos about that exact content and what you found concerning about it. Instead, you comment on a relatively innocuous video about a North Korean Defector to criticize the host over something totally unrelated. Then call them "cunts."
You say you're trying to hold them accountable, but all you were doing is insulting people in videos where you don't seem to actually criticize anything they say.
trump has not fired a single shot into north korea while north korea has just fired 40 shots into south korea 5 of which almost killed a south korean civilian, on top of that kim orders his troops to soot anyone leaving the country..... so isn't kim trying to shoot defectors?.... cenk said to pressure china, that's what i meant
Not really, he was probably scared out of his mind, and risked or definitely got his family killed. Most guards are picked because they have family, so he doomed them back home 99% Terrible regime, but they normally do what they do to prevent escapes.
no, we signal to the world that the US police and the system is also barbaric and has no problem murdering unarmed human beings. May be instead of preaching human rights to other people, we should actually try it ourselves. Our cops are no different from the DPRK people we slander
when you idiots keep including michael brown on your list of "victims" you signal to the world you only care that he was black. He was no innocent. He was a violent thug that was shot because he tried to steal the gun of an officer... after committing assault and robbery.
While he was on the ground he was thinking he was in paradise, all North Korean refugees are consider South Korean citizens, i guarantee you while he was behind that wall he thought if he wasn't going to make it he would die free
Generic Scout the amount of defectors that end up returning makes it almost impossible to claim that the people of the dprk don't know about the detection money
And no, that money is and has been set. It was less before but still around a half a million dollars, it rose last year to be 700k.
Scummy like we all said just go there then, there are multiple pictures, and footage of the place, it is a hell hole, and no this is not "government sources" these are people who went in, and filmed the place, which you could do right now, but do not be surprised when you are snatched up into a concentration camp, the idea you could defend a nation like North Korea is beyond retarded for someone with any access to the internet, and sources, if you love communism so much you are more than free to go live in China, North Korea, etc.
4T3hM4kr0n! When was the last time you were in the dprk? Please illuminate me as to your personal experience with the country and how you learned information from the country itself and not from the nation that bomber the dprk back to the stone age less than a 100 years ago and still threatens them routinely with invasion and wars of aggression
Well, maybe I'm being naive. But if a celebrity like can go talk to him (whatever his intentions were) why not a global leader? You don't even need anything out of it, just ease the bully type he is. I don't know, when you're not belligerent people can feel that so those types... they'll either abuse it or get a glimpse of how useful that can be.
MARDUK for some reason that worked before 2016. North Korea has made this noise for decades but never been the brick of war, neither with Clinton, Bush, Obama. Somehow this last year has been different, I can't quite figure it out.
Barry Butters - The Imperial United States has a terrible track record of liberating countries. In the 1950's the United States military had committed an abhorrent atrocity by dropping napalm bombs on North Koreans, or have you forgotten?! You do realize that the United States government is just as corrupt as North Koreas, they just commit their crimes against the plebs covertly. I could provide you thousands of crimes the United States government commits both foreign and domestically! One more note, North Korea doesn't invade and destabilize sovereign nations like the U.S. does!
And what about the millions of civilian casualties such a war would cause? NK has missiles aimed at Seoul 24/7.
Also, you don't even know if North Koreans want to be freed: they are pretty brainwashed at this point, so they'd most likely fight against you.
kevin white So your logic is any country with issues shouldn't try to liberate North Koreans from a totalitarian dictatorship that has created and allowed famine military executions widespread disease and overall oppression
Barry Butters -Are you suggesting the United States intervene in foreign affairs and invade North Korea a sovereign nation?! The United States has it's own internal domestic problems that need to be solved for example, 64,000 people in the U.S. die every year from the opiate epidemic plaguing our nation!
Are you going to pay for another trillion dollar war with your own money, otherwise I would suggest you f*ck off and speak for yourself!
shutdafup 🙄🙄 Omg you are so dumb.. Dropping an atomic bomb on NK would take out US territories, SK, and parts of China. It may also effect Japan which is our ally. This isn’t the 40’s, relationships and boundaries have changed a nuclear war would be a disaster.
Sammy Slam --- War is a messy business but it's unfortunately a necessity to promote our way of life --- If it wasn't for the widely hated and devastating Japanese A-bombs would South Korea AND Japan be as happy and prosperous as they are today ??? ........... Peace and prosperity is never just given, it has to be earned --- Unfortunately by a lot of innocent people
Sammy Slam ---- if given no other choice would you sacrifice the sweetest family that ever lived for the lives of an entire city or country ??? ... Unfortunately were are at that point and REAL decisions have to be made.
+Arnold Slater First of all. North Korea is communist from my memory. Secondly A military dictatorship is what north korea is. A dictatorship can happen in any form of economic system it is not something solely limited to just one economic system.
took 5 bullets for freedom, and all he gets is capitalism and a t-shirt.
just saying, there's no actual freedom to be found outside of north korea either. just less desperation. and, at least outside some us states, people who know other things than how to praise the Lord (Il-Sung) and his son(+grandson).
You can't put a price on freedom!
It is worth the lives of 99% of the enslaved just to free 1%
This is why I never understood how we can give up any freedoms and
That we have sacrificed so much for?
Why we so easily give this up, for what we perceive as security?
The global warming has him in it's throws.
Sry just a bit of banter on your typo.
The video suggested the DPRK uses human excrement as fertilizers.
Though I have read articles stating that the west has been using
Sewage treatment plant sludge as an additive to compost and as
a organic fertilizer for decades.
Maybe the difference is in the way it is being applied and treated beforehand
Perhaps the Koreans are not treating this bio-solids as they are called to kill
pathogens, bacteria and viruses.
So just like everything else in North Korea, their agricultural processes are
dangerous and cause health problems...
It really is sad how political diplomacy or lack thereof causes a whole
nation to suffer.
I imagine this pathogen problem will likely end up exasperating the
famine in Korea....
Jaden Hercules They explained that in the video, and it's awful! They use human feces to fertilize the crops, so parasites get on the produce. A lack of basic sanitation means the parasites spread. The people of North Korea are starving, and in some cases eat rats or dogs (which of course can have parasites).
