via Japan Today (more here):
If I didn't listen to the North Korean government, they would tie me up, call Dresnok in to beat me. Dresnok really enjoyed it.

Charles Robert Jenkins, saying the the North Koreans played four American defectors against each other, with one, Pfc James Joseph Dresnok, constantly beating him. (Far Eastern Economic Review)
Even when your head tells you that every country has flaws, even when your head tells you that the United States is no stranger to oppression of its own citizens (try spending a month in a typical American prison), even when your head tells you that demonization of North Korea is probably not the most effective ways of defusing tensions and bringing about peace and stability in Korea, North Korea provides enough stories and quotes like these to make your heart sick.
