American arrested in North Korea

American arrested in North Korea

Pae Jun Ho an American citizen of Korean heritage (mother lives in the USA state of Washington, father lives in South Korea) was arrested in North Korea while there as a tourist.  Why would an American travel to the lunatic nation as a tourist?     

The North Koreans basically have a depressed economy where mass starvation has become a way of life in the Hermit Kingdom.  So where are the North Korean communist and Dear Leader getting the billions to develop their nuclear weapons and missile program?  Good question!

On the Korean peninsular, just north of the 38th parallel there is a town called Kaesong.  An industrial park was created in this communist North Korean town, called Kaesong Industrial Region. 

Many South Koreans set up manufacturing plants in the Kaesong Industrial Region.  Products can be produced cheaper here than in China.  It is estimated the corporate tax paid by South Korean companies to the North Korean commies / Dear Leader (Kim Jong-ill in the head), is 1.78 billion dollars.

Looking at these figures it is rather easy to see where the North Koreans are getting their money to develop their missile and nuclear weapons which threaten South Korea, Japan, and the United States of America.

Are any of the products produced in Kaesong Industrial Region exported to the United States via South Korea?  Are componets for Hyundai, KIA, and Samsung hidden within and exported to the USA?

So while the USA is admonishing the North Koreans for their missile and nuclear development, South Korean corporations through the back door are financing these weapon developments.  Geo politics are just plain crazy?
