    I guess I was being totally naive to think this pasty looking jerk was going to be different than his maniac father. Maybe it was the trophy wife (North Korean version) and her Gucci handbags. Obviously I was being naive. His people are starving to support his huge military and paranoid ambitions to be a nuclear superpower.

    I wish I knew how to send pictures.
    On cheezburger there was a picture of Kim Jong Un telling a uniformed guy “When I said nuke the Chinese I meant put the take-out in the microwave, right?”

    Really? Reducing foreign policy to personal insults? Jeez, earn your pay, man.

    I also thought things might change. But I now see that the powers-that-be don’t change with the figurehead they put up. It’s the same Military-Industrial-Complex, only the communist version, which means they can actually name the leader (whereas in the U.S. the MIC has to bribe people into voting for the “right” leaders). One could despair about the state of the world…

    Using the same old tired WMD line they used as a excuse to invade Iraq.

    I wonder if this young man deserves more of our sympathy than we think. He was thrust into his position and may well be, as Morty notes, a figurehead. With old men at his back, knives at the ready, this ‘boy’ is as trapped as any of his citizens. The officers still at war with S.Korea and the US will never give up power, status, and most importantly, regular meals, and would probably see to it Kim Jung Un caught the flu should he ever resist. I think N. Korea is an oligarchy, as opposed to a dictatorship, and if given a chance, Mr. Un would love to take his bride to disneyland and live off of a trust fund. He simply doesn’t look like he enjoys his power as much as his predecessors.
    I could be wrong.
    The Koreans will not fire a missle at us, but they might “lose” a warhead that ends up in the hands of terrorists. This is my biggest fear. China will not permit N.K. to fire a nuke unless it is in their interest to see what will happen.
    I’m glad I don’t have to make these decisions.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Yes, you’re right. Our far “right” want’s to starve we the people into submission to their oligarchy. So far it has come nowhere near n korea.
    BTW, this ’toon is excellent.

    I think that’s been the number-one concern about North Korea’s nuclear ambitions for a while now. While the missile tests are basically a way of yelling “I’m serious, be scared of me!”, even the most deluded NK official has to know that there are enough conventional weapons pointed at their country to turn it into a parking lot within half an hour of an actual hostile launch being detected. But there are plenty of terrorist organizations just salivating over the chance to get their hands on an honest-to-goodness nuke- and they’ve got the funds to get cash-starved North Korea’s attention.

    Why does this creep remind me of K-pop star Psy?

    @MortyForTyrant

    Thanks, Morty.
    @Frank You know Psy has had over 2.4 billion viewings of that? I played it to cover up the sound of my opening up the cat’s flea treatment.

    Communism was supposed to bring in a new age of enlightenment Marx and Lenin thought it would free us from material possessions. Instead it has brought beggars and looters that rule by the gun and atomic bombs. Instead of the promise enlightenment Communism has given us two Communist Monarchies N. Korea and Cuba.

    The Nations that are the producers of materials and have shared those materials are considered evil for the fact we produce only. So that is our choice money or guns and bombs. A good life or serfdom in a country like North Korea.

    Actions of the country he is head of are the basis for most of the insults.

    Yes, we must fear “lil’ Kim” so that we can continue to spend more with contractors on “defense”, than the next 13 military powers (friend and foe, mostly friends) combined!


    Also interesting that “atoms for peace” turned into some serious problems containing materials, and with proliferation of “peaceful nukes” producing energy, anyone not “our friend” isn’t allowed to have them on line?


    Nukes remain a threat, not a solution, and Americans, mostly, still don’t have a clue where those electrons come from when they flip a light switch.
