It’s 12:30 a.m. and I can’t sleep, so I decided to zip through a few news sites to see what’s been going on since I logged off my computer 5 hours ago. And SURPRISE…I am hit in the face with news of such earth-shaking geopolitical and diplomatic weight that I am near speechless.
I am excited to say that the United States is taking a brave, bold and brilliant stance against North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il. This latest stroke of international genius features the U.S. government restricting Mr. Jong-Il’s access to luxury items like iPods, plasma TVs, and other consumer electronics. And it doesn’t stop there. According to Fox News:
But the list of proposed luxury sanctions, obtained by The Associated Press, aims to make Kim’s swanky life harder to come by: No more cognac, Rolex watches, cigarettes, artwork, expensive cars, Harley Davidson motorcycles or even personal watercraft, such as Jet Skis.
WHAT?!?!? No more Jet Skis?!?!? Come on! How’s he supposed to LIVE? What’s he supposed to do with his time?
Well, I guess he can occupy himself by continuing to brainwash his people into believing he is the savior of the world and the closest thing to God that they’ll ever see. (Since Communism denies the existence of any deity, that should be easy.) And if that doesn’t keep him entertained, he can always drive through the country and watch his people starve to death or die of easily treatable diseases. Atleast THAT beats watching grass grow.
To be honest, I don’t know which sounds more pathetic the U.S. Government treating the insane N. Korean dictator like a recalcitrant teen, or Kim Jong-Il for living large like a spoiled teen brat from the O.C. while the majority of the North Korean citizenry are neglected, starving, malnourished, impoverished souls with no hope in the near or distant future unless, God willing, something (or someone) bad happens to Mr. Il like death.
But until that time, stay tuned for more breaking news. I hear that Condoleezza Rice is going over there next month to take away his phone privileges and ALL of his game systems (including the XBOX 360 and Nintendo Wii).
I know such measures are harsh, but it will do him some good. Maybe for good measure she should put him on restriction for a month from playing with his nuclear weapons.
Naaah that would be too excessive!
