Starving North Korean troops told to steal food to get ready for battle
As North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un boasts of his military prowess and flaunts his high tech weapons to the world, his malnourished soldiers are said to be stealing corn from fields to stave off hunger pangs.South Korea needs to closely guard food warehouses near any invasion route and set up booby trapped food bins along such a route to slow down an enemy advance. The North Korean troops may run out of stamina before they reach their initial objectives.
Officers are ordering their troops to supplement their meagre food rations by plundering local fields, in order to keep up their strength for battle, according to a report in the Daily NK.
“The military officers are instructing their soldiers, exhausted after training, to eat corn in the fields because war is imminent,” a source in North Hamgyong Province told the news website.
“They are even threatening their soldiers, saying: if you become malnourished despite permission to eat the corn, you will face difficulties.”
Another source in Ryanggang Province claimed that soldiers carrying big sacks of unripened corn had frequently been spotted trying to sell their wares at markets.
