If Kim Jong-un was not a fat, evil little troll who oppresses his own people, starves them, and inserts them into prison camps that make us wonder if Hitler is still alive, he would be almost respectable in one way. He does not back down very often (though he did against President Trump about Guam) and he isn’t one to be intimidated. Sadly, him being a fat, evil troll ruins this admiration in total.
Bloomberg reports today that North Korea is simply furious about new sanctions and has now “vowed to accelerate its plans to acquire a nuclear weapon that can strike the U.S. homeland.” As we have come to see clearly, this despot is completely committed to his goal at all costs. His latest frightening promise is in response to U.N. sanctions that are set to begin.
Failing to understand that the sanctions came as a result of N.K.’s nuclear ambitions, the Hermit Kingdom implied that their nuclear program is a result of sanctions, something that incorrectly rewrites history. The DPRK has said that sanctions have made them “follow this road at a faster pace without the slightest diversion until this fight to the finish is over.”
That backward re-imagining of facts won’t help the troubled Asian nation on the world stage any. Most world leaders know better. However, listening to them attempt to justify their actions would be quite amusing if we weren’t talking WMD.
“The adoption of another illegal and evil ‘resolution on sanctions’ piloted by the U.S. served as an occasion for the DPRK to verify that the road it chose to go down was absolutely right,” their ministry has said to the Korean News Agency.
“The DPRK will redouble the efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country’s sovereignty and right to existence,” they added.
It is enough to make one howl with morbid laughter that a nation that aims to send nuclear missiles into sovereign nations wants to talk about someone revoking sovereignty from them!
At no point, until the threats came, has anyone wanted to even be bothered by the useless kingdom.
Like most communist nations, North Korea can not grow food (why are ALL communist nations unable to plant a seed or breed a cow?), supply their own oil, or even build a subway system without help from the rest of the world who they have angered.
Now, we just have to hope that as things get really cold in N.K. with oil being cut that they revolt. That would save America and the rest of the world from having to soil our hands with this nuclear madman.
