What if we sent USB killers instead?
>>52884705
Yeah, I mean Kim Jong Un is really going to need that Western media.
If you wanted to impact the people, then perhaps you would send them something not electronic, since no one there has a home computer. Or, if they have, it's going to run red star os, and then they're going to get executed because of treason when the os finds they have illegal files on them. Either way, the people lose.
>>
>they dont have computer
Yes they do. There is a black market in north korea whether you want to believe it or not. A more optimal idea is using cd's because dvd players are much more widespread. This isnt some new idea, south koreans have been supplying their neighbors with somewhat relevant technology for decades, illegally of course. But these cali faggots are nust stupid, they dont want some american spaghetti western because who fucking does? Its a niche market in asia and though it exists im very doubtful its wide spread in communist land. Just send them ak's like we americans do in every shitty situation and watch the area turn into a fucking shithole in the next 10-15 years as different extremist rise to power.
>>
>>52883106
Who the fuck thinks this is a good idea.
Ignoring the amount of smugglers that would get killed or captured, think about the sheer ton of citizens who are going to get carted off to work camps the second the secret police even thinks they have one of these USBs.
How many citizens of NK even have the several devices required for watching a movie on USB?
If they are going through so much effort into smuggling shit into NK, why don't they smuggle in food, medical supplies, books for teaching etc etc.

Is the amount of innocent people who are going to get killed or incarcerated indefinitely really worth it so some starving villager can watch an mp4 file of Christmas with the Kranks?

whoa, how surprising. just because they didn't join your chain of circlejerk which you call capitalism and global market, they should be eradicated. apparently, your 'human rights' don't apply for the regimes that are unlike yours. you didn't like the regime in Libya, now look at its state after holy democracy, or Iraq. USA is the prime evil of this world. I hope I can live enough to see its collapse. Real freedom will begin then.

Not who you're arguing with btw, but "denying trade" to North Korea doesn't hurt the government as much as it does the people

lots do according to what i've read, they're far from popular but they do exist.


Unlocked personal DVD players are by far the largest seller in best koreas black market.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-change-insight-idUSKBN0MM2UZ20150327

They can play dvds, or load files off of a flash drive.

have a chunk from that article.

Notel or 'notetel' - the name is a uniquely North Korean word combining 'notebook' and 'television' - are easily found on the black market for around 300 Chinese yuan ($48), and are also available in some state shops and markets.

The device was legalized last year, according to defector-run news outlets in Seoul - one of many recent measures taken by the state to accommodate grassroots change.

The new rules, however, also require North Koreans to register their notel, enabling authorities to monitor who is most likely to be watching banned foreign media.

North Koreans do not have access to the internet - those who can go online are limited to a state-run intranet, while the country's 2.5 million mobile phone subscribers are not allowed to call outside the country.

The notel comes from China, either smuggled or legally imported.

Lee Seok-young, a defector from the North, said he smuggled 18,000 Chinese-made notel into the country last year. He said he ordered them directly from a factory in Guangzhou that was likely still in production solely to satisfy the demands of the North Korean market.
