yada yada yada
and it’s all getting a bit boring.
New Zealand Herald came up with this—
A high-ranking former member of the North Korean Government says the harsh economic sanctions imposed on the country could be enough to wipe it out within 12 months.
Oh my goodness—
Ri Jong-ho, a former economic official appointed by Kim Jong-un’s father and predecessor Kim Jong-il, says the United Nations’ trade restrictions are so strong that it could cripple the isolated nation …
I’ve lost track of how often in the last few decades sanctions have passed their ‘cripple by’ date and still the starving(?) sanctionee isn’t crippled.
Not only not crippled—North Korea’s capabilities seem to be improving by giant leaps and bounds.
All propaganda, of course! Them Commie ratbags can no more afford nukes than I can (everyone knows that Communists can’t even feed themselves)(so there).
Send a gunboat!
it gets better—
“Many people will die.”
—yeah. Sure they will—but not the ones some would like to die, such as these jolly smiling chaps with the overdose of cheery—
—who like all good politicians are very good at getting stand-ins to do their dying for them.
SO I ASK
the “high ranking former etc etc” chap — did nobody tell him that blasted commies can’t even afford bootlaces, much less nukes and missiles?
So exactly who is propagandising whom, here?
What? We did send a gunboat? They did what? They laughed?
