North Korea: to visit or not to visit?

From an ethical point of view should you visit North Korea? What do you reply to anyone who says the money you paid for the trip has been spent on the North's missile and nuclear weapons programmes, and that tourists are helping to prop up the regime with their cash and visits that legitimise the administration? 
This was the subject of an article published on Deutsche Welle's website in which I'm quoted. I'll leave you to read the article here.

You can read the account of my 2010 trip to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea here.

What do you think about visiting? Let me know in the comments below.
