    Anyway, I’m immune from prosecution on account of I’m Head of
    State. The High Court of Justice in London says so.

    Sew a theater nuke inside Dennis Rodman and send him back to see his “friend”.

    My favorite North Korean quote is “Let them eat bark… and grass!”

    Wait a few years. There’s a decent chance that an American CEO will echo those words.

    Taking out Kim alone solves nothing; you have to get that entire crowd of applauding higher-ups behind him.
    You couldn’t have prevented WWII by just killing Hitler; you would have had to carpet bomb the Nuremberg rallies to do it properly.

    Look at what a nicely drawn cartoon this is. The thrust from upper left to lower right, the viewing angle up at the subjects, the arrangement of the characters, with Death/China touching Kim approvingly as he grasps his victims, even the atmospheric use of the crow-quill shading in the background. Pat, I’ve enjoyed your work since I was a kid. Keep up the good work.

    The present leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, makes me think of the evil child Emperor Thuba Mleen in Lord Dunsany’s story, “The Hashish Man.”

    Despots are indeed bad news. Over several centuries, how many died, or were persecuted by the Inquisition? How about the two decades of occupation in southern Lebanon, using the iron fist, that now just wipes out property rights in the West Bank? Despotism incorporates several gradations, and tactics, but is still evil.

    Yes, groups like Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and the PLO are pretty despotic and definitely persecute their enemies (and each other) like the Inqusition would have….

    “god gave land to our people. What land did Allah give to you guys.”

    God blessed the United States of America and gave all of North America to them outright (he don’t like native Americans) And said the world is theirs also but they have to take it.

    What pile of sand did he give you again?
