North Korea continues to prove to the world that it is one of the worst countries in the world to live in.
You know you have problems when a country focuses on building missiles rather than feeding its own population.
In early June, a North Korean soldier guarding the DMZ defected and entered South Korea.
The soldier was immediately detained by South Korean officials, who wanted to see if he was a spy.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The BBC noted that this was the third North Korean soldier to successfully defect in as many years — though it is unclear how many have attempted to defect across the heavily fortified DMZ and have either been caught or killed by the North Korean government.
There was very little information about what happened to the soldier after he was detained by South Korean officials.
If this soldier was a true defector, South Korea and the United States would want to ensure his safety from the North Koreans by not giving away any details about his location.
No doubt, North Korean leader Kim Jon Un was furious about the soldier leaving and will more than likely target his family, as is tradition in North Korea when an individual defects.
Hopefully South Korea and the United States will keep the soldier safe from any harm. He more than likely has a lot of information he can share with us.
