It is estimated that North Korea spends at least 25% of it's GNP on the military - perhaps more. All male citizens are required to serve between 5 and 10 years in the military. It's not just the nukes. The whole country is being slowly starved and destroyed to keep a small group of elite military commanders in power.Originally posted by: HJD1<br
