North Korean Candy

North Korea is a frustrating place to think about: an irrational leader who judges his own country’s importance by how much he can get the U.S. to pay attention to him; a brutally oppressive government; and a country that devotes all of its attention to increasing militarization while the general population undergoes profound starvation.

But hey kids, just eat some of our new candy and everything is going to be OK!

Just sad and awful. I cannot even imagine what is actually in that candy if it’s produced by their government.

You would think that once things got bad enough, the population as a whole would rise up and shove that candy up Kims arse and then beat him like a piniata, but that just isn’t happening.
Oh, well. Let them eat cake, or candy.

This is obviously the result of America’s evil, capitalist culture which runs gulags in Cuba.

I’ll bet Halliburton are getting all the profits.

Let’s go liberate them and give them freedom.

Many North Koreans think that things are like that ALL OVER the world. They aren’t allowed to have radios or televisions, or to receive outside communication of any kind. Kim Jong Il tells them that everyone is starving, but North Korea is the best off.

Obviously not everyone is fooled, since many escape to South Korea. Meanwhile, they have to dig up dead bodies to scavange for meat.

Kuz lied, the Ayatollah Khomeni died!!!

Anyone of my liberal friends want to question the way W. has been handling this one?

Hey Jeff, they already have!

“Why were we wasting our time in Iraq, when everybody knows that the REAL threat is N. Korea?” [We should have been invading them!]

Of course, if we invaded N. Korea, they would have said “Why did this idiot Bush go into Korea? What have they ever done to us? Everyone knows that IRAN is the real threat!”

And so on.

How did I do sump-pump-lumpy?

I think we should just send them a McDonalds that would solve everything. That’s how we defeated the USSR.
