www.abc.net.au said:
Cash-strapped North Korea has demanded the United States pay almost $US65 trillion ($75 trillion) in compensation for six decades of hostility.

The official North Korean news agency, KCNA, says the cost of the damage done by the US since the peninsula was divided in 1945 is estimated at $US64.96 trillion.

The compensation call comes on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the start of the 1950-1953 Korean War.

KCNA said the figure includes $US26.1 trillion arising from US "atrocities" which left more than 5 million North Koreans dead, wounded, kidnapped or missing.

The agency also claims 60 years of US sanctions have caused a loss of $US13.7 trillion by 2005, while property losses were estimated at $US16.7 trillion.

The agency said North Koreans have "the justifiable right" to receive the compensation for their blood.

It said the committee's calculation did not include the damage North Korea had suffered from sanctions after its first nuclear test in 2006.
Oh NK, how fun you are.

Kim Long-John-Il will finally be able to afford that Nintendo Wii he's been wanting.

They realise that legally they're still at war with the rest of the world right

I was actually thinking for a moment that the compensation would be about FIFA before I opened this thread.

To demand a certain amount of money from someone, one must first realize the person has that kind of money.

Haha, same here.

I heard a few of the players defected after the game, is that true?

Useless Fact: If you stacked the amount of money North Korea want (in 1$ bills) it would be 4,408,575.36 miles in height

Can't wait for the South Park episode about this. They'd call it "Korea on Strike".

Haha, right. Because that's how this kind of thing works in legal proceedings. "Oh, you don't have the fifty grand? Welp just give me taxi fare and we'll call it even."
