"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Malnutrition rampant in North Korea, the threat level analyzed, and Kid Rock locked and loaded

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Malnutrition rampant in North Korea: More than half a million died in 90's

As news of North Korea's nuclear weapons program continues to bring about global tension, on Friday John Sifton joined "Piers Morgan Live" to add his insight into what life is like within the foreign land:

"One of the most amazing things is the malnutrition, the acute malnutrition that's going on. A lot of people think about the crimes against humanity, and they think of kinetic force, you think of violence," explained the Asia Advocacy Director for Human Rights Watch. "The fact is in North Korea, the crimes against humanity were starvation. In the '90s, somewhere between half a million and 1.1 million people died as a direct result of poor governance, and decisions by the North Korean regime to withhold aid or divert aid, divert food from certain North Koreans and give it instead to the military."

  • America's role: Experts analyze the threat level from North Korea

Meanwhile, from an international standpoint, Robert Gallucci and Victor Cha visited with Piers Morgan, adding their insight to the role of the United States, and to the severity of the threat as compared to others in years past:

"If I was in that job now, I would probably be sitting in Washington waiting for the current crisis to pass," said Gallucci, the former chief North Korea negotiator for President Clinton. "I don't think it is plausible, no matter how enthusiastic one might be, for negotiations with North Korea as a method of settling it by nonviolent means. I don't think it's plausible that in this atmosphere, one would be negotiating."

Cha, meanwhile, helped to explain how the current situation in North Korea differs from others that have come before it:

"The level of rhetoric we've seen from North Korea compared to what we've seen in the past, you know, in 1994 when Bob [Gallucci] was negotiating, and also in 2005, 2007, they are way off the scale in terms of their rhetoric," explained the former Director of Asian Affairs at the National Security Council. "The actions, the fact that they're standing up missiles, pointing them in the direction of the Korean peninsula, in Japan and U.S. territories, I think these are all signs that things are a little bit different."

  • "Rock the Vote": Musician Kid Rock's views on politics, and gun control

Also as part of Friday's program, the host sat down with Kid Rock, who revealed his stance on firearms and gun control:

"I've got one," shared the the man born Robert James Ritchie. "I need to have one. When I go to Detroit, I never come into Detroit without my gun, ever, right by my side, loaded, ready."

A five-time Grammy Award nominee, Rock supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, a decision he says, that ruffled it's fair share of feathers:

"So many people got their panties in a bunch. And as a musician, you know, as a rock and roll musician, you - you want to find ways to piss off - piss people off. If I'd have known people got up so upset, I'd have gotten into politics years ago," he admitted. "It makes people so upset. I mean look, but at the end of the day, really, it's like, come on, it's OK to have a different viewpoint and to voice it."

    Does it not shock people that at the same time we sit back observing the lack of human rights in N. Korea......we have similar behavior with the Church of Scientology in the West ? Malnutrition.....kidnapping......human torture.......see: http://www.tampabay.com/news/scientology/fbis-scientology-investigation-balancing-the-first-amendment-with-charges/1270036 NOTE: With all the evidence that continues to surface, the IRS sanctions the Church of Scientology as a religious organization thus absolving it of paying tax ? And the world's most popular movie star (Tom Cruise) is also the 3rd most powerful/influential Scientologist in the "Church". What does this say about OUR values ? I suggest we get much of our own house in order...first. Translation: Tax the Church of Scientology......do not attend Tom Cruise films until the actor condemns vs preaches the benefits of his 'religion'...Ask the questions and make people accountable including elected officials for answers. do it NOW !

      Well said Aaron. I never watch Tom Cruise movies anyway, but it has nothing to do with his Scientology links.

    I'm so fed up w/the stupid, intelligence insulting and repudiative questions these journalists ask. And also these foreigners trying to sell their views and beliefs on us. Piers is especially guilty, makes the most pea-brained liberal sound sensible.
