I wouldn't doubt North Korea. How else is Kim Jong Il supposed to get money to buy his $650,000 to $720,000 yearly purchase of Hennessey cognac. 

 

If you have Netflix watch the National Geographic Special on North Korea. It's so sad, I swear I teared up and got mad how he starves, brainwashes, and intimidates his people (through work camps) at his expense. Nothing is more sad than hearing of how some have escaped by using someone else's dead body to escape through electric fencing to China. (Heard this from an actual North Korean testimony)

It really is shocking how badly the North Korean citizens are treated by their government. I have 53GB of documentaries I've found from around the web. I can't watch more than a few minutes of one before becoming pissed off and ready to parachute into Pyongyang and hunt down Kim Jong-Il myself. To see how badly they have it compare North Korea's profile to South Korea's profile in the CIA World Factbook (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html). The North and South Koreans are genetically the same people and yet they have vastly different infant mortality and life expectancy rates; their economic statistics are polar opposites; and their infrastructures are night and day. After looking at a comparison between the two I can't see how anyone can still believe that communism works or is even desireable.

I'm so ronery!

North Korea does anything and EVERYTHING it can think of to raise money for their cause and/or instigate problems for South Korea/the U.S.A.. North Korea is like that kid we all knew growing up that did and said the craziest things just to get attention and enjoyed watching the chaos caused by his words/actions.

So velly, velly, ronery!

"but secret government agencies named after numbers and hacker armies make South Korea's claims sound a bit far-fetched"

You're joking, right Nathan?  You should set aside a week or two and read some history on communist countries.  This is exactly how they are organzied.

Don't have a week or two?  Read this site:  http://www.dailynk.com/english/

The names they assign to their offices and organziations sound so wierd to us, but they are a fact of life in a communist country.
