US To Give North Korean Regime Massive Handouts So They Can Stay In Power (InformationLiberation)

The US is not content with the North Korean regime collapsing in on itself. Instead, the Obama regime is insisting on providing them with massive handouts so they can stay in power.
APNewsBreak: US aid a step toward Korea nuke talks
The United States was poised to announce a significant donation of food aid to North Korea this week before the nation announced the death of supreme leader Kim Jong Il. The donation, which could now be delayed, would be the first concrete accomplishment after months of behind-the-scenes diplomatic contacts between the two wartime enemies. An agreement by North Korea to suspend its controversial uranium enrichment program would have likely followed within days.This is completely backwards idiocy. The country should be forced to open up their borders and liberalize their economy in order for the people to be able to provide for themselves, instead the US is stepping in to subsidize their fascism. Rather than their government get out of the way and/or spend their money on feeding their people, they can spend their money on militarism and nukes with a US fattened population.
The U.S. would provide 240,000 tons of high-protein biscuits and vitamins — 20,000 tons a month for a year — but not much-wanted rice, according to reports in the South Korean media. It would be the first food aid from the U.S. in nearly three years.
Negotiators have sought for two decades to convince North Korea to dismantle its plutonium-producing nuclear reactor at Yongbyon, which the government insists exists to generate much-needed power. But plutonium can be used to make atomic bombs, and North Korea also stands by its right to develop missiles to defend itself against the nuclear-armed United States.
