North Korea has officially sentenced the Canadian pastor Heyon soo lim to a life sentence with hard labour.
>At a video-taped news conference Mr Lim confessed to plotting to create a "religious state".
>According to a state news agency, he admitted to conspiring with the US and South Korea to overthrow Mr Kim "with the love of God".
Sounds like typical North Korean bullshit. No different than American media who twist shit however the dollars tell them to $ensationalize for more.
If you just go with a tour, and listen to your tourguides, you can travel to DPRK perfectly fine.
If you try to break the law, overthrow the government, or do stupid shit you're told not to do, yes you get in trouble.
>if you turn left when told to go straight your "guides" point you with a gun
>keep dismissing their orders, you get fucking deported.
>If you bow to Kim il sung's statue you're part of the propaganda
You can't step in NK and stay perfectly fine, m8
To get a sheltered yet first hand experience of a propaganda tour in one of the weirdest and the most isolated country in the world.
Then come how literally hundreds of tourists do so every year?
I'd post some pics but that's not allowed. /trv/ regularly has threads from people who've been or are going to north Korea.
*tips fedora* I love this contrarian edgy persona so many of you adopt, playing at some world weary jadedness you haven't earned.
>le what did u expect xDDD
this attitude is the stuff of bumper stickers and bathroom walls and just outright fucking open-mouthed morons everywhere. of course the man knew what might happen. he put himself at extreme personal risk for his beliefs, to try and overthrow a fascist state.
>meme arrowed reddit memes
You throw around a lot of buzzwords but you present nothing that doesn't constitute an entirely baseless ad hominem. If I put your post on a bumper sticker, does that invalide it?
This man did the equivalent of trying to walk into an army base while holding a gun. Does it mean you deserve to die? no. Does it mean you are going to get shot and should have known that you will? chad ubetcha!
It was brave of him but a poorly planned idea. Now he is
A.) In prison for life
B.) Given tough labour
C.) Hasn't changed a thing
I agree that it was brave of him but wasn't very well thought out. He should've just raised money and helped to protest/ support new foreign aid or immigration laws.
I bet. Soldiers are also fucking pussies. Why am I supposed to have sympathy for a soldier who died for his country? He fucking knew what he was getting into, going to war. Fucking faggots.
How many people are even aware that North Korean sends Christian families to actual gas chambers? Not many, I would wager.
It would be wonderful if Christians were Christ-like enough to actually be as dangerous as the North Korean government is claiming. I would love to see a real, honest-to-God Christian revolution of some kind. Anyone know of any priests or preachers who advocate anything along those lines?
