This would actually be rather amusing

A human rights group has called on the International Olympic Committee “not to repeat the mistake of the 1936 Berlin Games” by permitting North Korea to host events as part of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Do Jong-hwan, the South Korean minister of sport, proposed last week that some of the skiing events at present scheduled to take place in the city of Pyeongchang instead be held at North Korea’s Masikryong Ski Resort.

Because they’d really never manage to cope at all. Tens of thousands of westerners there would be the mother of all disasters for the N Koreans. They simply would not comprehend how people would act.

  1. You are looking at it from a civilized pov. From a gangster regime, its tens of thousands possible ransome victims coming into your grasp. And what’s the works going to do? Declare war on a nuclear power?

  2. BigFire

    Declare war on a nuclear power?

    Hence, a problem that really does need to be sorted, and before they become a proper nuclear power..

    “mother of all disasters for the N Koreans. They simply would not comprehend how people would act.

    I would worry more about the quality of the ski resort presented? The locals could all be temporarily shipped out to gulags and replaced by imports (to service it). I doubt they could afford it anyway.

  3. “A human rights group has called on the International Olympic Committee “not to repeat the mistake of the 1936 Berlin Games” by permitting North Korea to host events as part of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.”

    We let Saudi Arabia and other middle eastern countries where women are second class citizens compete and host events. Why not the NorKs ?

  4. How many famous skyscrapers have the North Koreans been 100% behind taking out? Less than the Saudis.

    Do they support ISIS? Less than the Saudis, Israelis, and the USA.

    Apparently you’re unaware that the current NK nutter’s dad was a key sponsor of terrorist groups around the world. Among others, he supported the mujahideen in their transition from a US funded group to fight the Soviet Union into a post-Cold War terrorist organisation called Al Qaeda.

    Surely everyone’s heard of the NK counterfeit dollars?

  6. ‘not to repeat the mistake of the 1936 Berlin Games’

    just like the Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics gave credibility to the Nazis’

    He goes for Godwin’s Law from the start.

    Did the Rio Olympics give credibility to Brazil?

    ‘Ken Kato, director of Human Rights in Asia and a member of the International Coalition to Stop Crimes Against Humanity in North Korea, wrote in his letter to Mr Bach.’

    One whiner. The ICSCAHNK? Hey, Kato, get a life.

  7. “I doubt they could afford it anyway.”

    Spudster has the answer to that. And if he went to Pyongyang, he might come back brain dead – though I’m not sure how we’d tell…

  8. Biathlon is out, Guns
    Any downhill is out. Dodgy lifts
    Some sports no one is interested in then.
    But the hand friendship, etc It’s a start.

  9. Curling should be OK to outsource to DPRK

    Managing a handful of people throwing stones & wielding brushes ought to be within their abilities.

  10. We don’t need to declare war on NK. There is a perfectly good war that has been, mostly, on hold for nearly 60 years.
