Bowie: Winds of Change: Kim Jong-Un Wants More for North Korea [video]
July 23, 2012
Following the dismissal of a senior military official said to be opposed to reform, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has announced that the nation will begin to experiment with agricultural and economic reforms. Pyongyang has allegedly created a special bureau to take control of the economy from the military, a significant departure away from Kim Jong-Il’s “Military-First Policy”.
Reports issued by the Bank of Korea based in Seoul have confirmed that North Korea’s real annual GDP has increased by 0.8% in 2011, a significant shift away from previous years of economic deterioration. As China increases investment in North Korea in the form of Special Economic Zones and private enterprise, Beijing has led initiatives to develop the nation’s vast mineral resources, valued at $6.1 trillion.
Prior to his death, former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il visited Russia to finalize agreements with Gazprom, a Russian state-run natural gas-exporter, to construct a pipeline connecting Russia, North Korea and South Korea, giving Pyongyang an estimated $100 million in annual transit fees.

South Korea has announced plans to build a new naval base near its border with North Korea. The base will include barracks and a training ground to accommodate around 100 troops. The base will be located on one of five South Korean islands established by the UN in the 1950s, but Pyongyang refuses to accept Seoul’s ownership of the island. The border’s been the scene of several clashes between the neighbors – the most recent attack happened in 2010, when the North shelled one of the Yellow Sea islands, killing 4 South Koreans. For more on this RT talks to James Corbett, Editor of News and Information site, The Corbett Report, from Osaka, Japan.
Powdered dead baby pills used as medical cure-all in South Korea

(NaturalNews) Customs officials in South Korea were horrified to discover recently that there is an active, underground drug trade involving powdered, dead babies. Numerous sources confirm that thousands of capsules containing dead baby remains in powdered form were confiscated in recent months in South Korea after travelers tried to smuggle these supposedly “cure-all” drugs in from China.
According to reports, corrupt medical personnel in China are selling aborted and still-born baby corpses to medical companies, which then secretly store them in people’s home refrigerators. When it comes time for processing, these companies then retrieve the bodies, dry them in microwaves, and grind them into powder, which is then injected into capsules.
In order to disguise this utterly nauseating and savage practice, these morally depraved opportunists add herbs and other materials to the capsules in order to avoid detection by investigators and customs officials. But apparently this tactic has failed, as more than 17,000 capsules falsely labeled as “stamina boosters” have already been confiscated since August 2011.
“Ethnic Koreans from northeast China who now live in South Korea are those who were mostly intending to use the capsules or share them with other Korean-Chinese,” said a customs official to the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “They are normally brought into South Korea in luggage or posted by international mail.”
Some segments of the Chinese population purportedly believe that human placental tissue is medicinal, and that consuming it will improve blood supply and circulation. But it appears as though within this segment, that belief has been perverted to also include dead baby flesh as well. And unless inspectors keep a close eye on all incoming and outgoing luggage and packages, the practice will more than likely continue.
Beyond the moral implications of the practice, officials also warn of very serious health implications as well. According to reports, the pills, which are primarily coming from four Chinese cities — Jilin, Yanji, Tianjin, and Qingdao — often contain deadly “super” bacteria that can make individuals very sick.
“As we analyzed the DNA, its DNA sequence is 99.7 percent to 99.9 percent coincided to humans’,” said a customs official involved with conducting analyses on the capsule powder. “Super-bacteria and other viruses and bacteria, which are harmful to the human body, have been detected.”
At the same time, some are now lumping the revolting dead baby pills in with all herbal medicine, calling for closer scrutinization of natural medicine. It remains to be seen if the issue is used by political opportunists to further demonize nutritional and dietary supplements.
