PYONGYANG, July 1 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Saturday condemned a Japanese politician for calling for "starving to death North Koreans" over its nuclear and missile programs.
Masanori Tanimoto, governor of Ishikawa prefecture in western Japan, has called for cutting food supplies to the DPRK to "starve North Koreans to death" and bringing about the collapse of the country's social system.
"The governor of Ishikawa Prefecture of Japan said on June 21 that the 'North Korean people should be starved to death by cutting off provision of foodstuff' over the fact that the DPRK took measures for self-defense," said Rodong Sinmum, the official daily of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea.
The daily compared Tanimoto to "a fascist murderer who is obsessed with misanthropic idea which casts into the shade (Nazi German leader Adolf) Hitler."

PacificSentinel: I don't condone the Japanese Governor's remarks, but the North Korean response is equally ridicules, the North Koreans are the one's that are starving their own people so they can dump money into the military via the Nuclear and Ballistic Missile development programs, redirecting some of that money would go along way toward feeding their own people.
