Kim Jong Il - Saddam Hussein on Steroids
One of the many justifications I've heard our former Thief in Chief, aka Boy George, aka W, use regarding the disaster that is the war in Iraq is that Hussein needed to be deposed because he was such a threat to our national security.
I really have to wonder what kind of guy Hussein was. I mean, I'm not saying I think he might have been a decent guy who liked a good laugh, and maybe the kind of guy you could go out and have a beer. But if Hussein was such a threat to America, he must have been an absolute lunatic if Bush chose to go to war with him instead of North Korea's "Dear Leader" Kim Jong Il.
I mean, everyone knows Saddam wanted to get the bomb, and had he accomplished that objective before he went to the gallows, no doubt the United States would have been at the top of his hit list. But let's take a look at Kim Jong Il.
The Dear Leader just celebrated his 67th birthday today, and Il threw himself a great big party and the whole country was "invited." Word has it that everyone who received an invitation actually showed up too!
Have you heard the gift Kim Jong Il wants to give to himself in honor of this birthday? He wants to test a long-range rocket which he claims is simply a peaceful rocket related to the North Korean Space Program.
Yuh. Riiiiiiiiiggggggghhhhhhht. Unless there's a little guy with a helmet up on Mars saying he wants to destroy the Earth because it is blocking his view of Venus, I'm not buying it.
I mean, this is the guy who has proliferated a myth that a new star was seen being born at the moment of his birth 67 years ago.
And this is the guy who has threatened to attack Japan and turn the Sea of Japan into a "Nuclear Sea of Fire," if the United States launches an attack against North Korea. Paranoid delusions anyone?
To top it off, the greatest sign I've seen that Kim Jong Il is, indeed, a pyschopath is that people around him claim that he has the power to change the weather and to cause flowers to bloom on his command.
It's kind of hard to believe that Saddam Hussein was more of a threat than Kim Jong Il. I mean, Hussein was a murdering bastard who ruled his people with an iron fist. Kim Jong Il has ruled with similar tactics as Hussein. The only difference is that Saddam never did get to create Weapons of Mass Destruction. Kim Jong Il has.
It's been said that every President leaves a host of foreign policy issues for his successor to contend with. The gifts left by President Bush for President Obama include cleaning up the mess in Iraq, stabilizing Afghanistan, and dealing with the likes of Kim Jong Il. It kind of makes me wonder if President Obama will ever ask himself if he should have asked for our vote!
