What is truly frightening about North Korea is that its people have tolerated an absolute dictatorship since 1948, when Dear Leader’s father, Dear Leader Sr., Kim Il-sung started up what became the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a/k/a North Korea.
The success of the Democratic…North Korea (sorry, couldn’t resist) is illustrated in the image: the South is lit, alive. The North is dark, dead. Such are the fruits of a centrally managed command economy. As for the Dear Leader’s demise, Jim Geraghty in today’s Morning Jolt notes this:
Osama Bin Laden, Moammar Qaddaffi, Kim Jong Il . . . 2012 is looking like a major rebuilding year for evil…Come on, Fidel. It’s time.
Amen to that. Wonder if Obama will take credit for Kim’s death?
