Kim Jong Il was forced to confront his own inability to reshape the world

January 4, 2013
(Socialism Killed Kim Jong Il)The plant in Huichon, Jagang Province, was built to solve the chronic power shortage in the Korea’s capital Pyongyang, meeting around half of the city’s energy needs. The dam is reported to be more than 300ft high and 1,800ft wide and capable of storing 850 million cubic metres of water. An anonymous source said the problem was more than ‘just a crack’, and added: ‘The safety of the entire dam was in question’. The news was the ‘final straw’ for Kim Jong-il, who had also been told about serious defects in other key steel and textile projects. North Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported: ‘After being briefed about the leak, Kim Jong-il lambasted officials and ordered them to repair it. ‘He rushed to make an on-site inspection of the facility unable to contain his anger and died suddenly.’(MORE)

UN holds moment of silence for one of their own

December 22, 2011

oh… but it is diplomacy right? We are merely dealing with moderates… just like the Muslim Brotherhood… and the and Think Progress people will not stop pushing that idea. They will tell you that you are the radical for having a position, when their position is the radical silencing opinion.

( how sick is the United Nations? Consider this: On Thursday, they held a moment of silence in memory of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il.

Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, president of the 193-nation assembly, called for a “minute of silence” before the start of a routine meeting at 3:00 p.m. EST in the half-empty UN General Assembly hall.
“It is my sad duty to pay tribute to the memory of the late Kim Jong-il, Secretary-General of the Workers Party of Korea, Chairman of the National Defense Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, who passed away on Saturday, Dec. 17,” he said.
The minute of silence lasted for 25 seconds before Nasser proceeded with the scheduled meeting. The United States, European Union member states and Japan were among the countries that boycotted the tribute to Kim Jong-il.
North Korea’s UN mission made a similar request to the Security Council, but Western diplomats said it was rejected.
“We didn’t think it would be appropriate,” a diplomat told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
Several Western diplomats said Pyongyang’s request for Kim to be honored was highly unusual. They voiced surprise that Nassir had granted it and added that their delegations would most likely boycott the moment of silence in the assembly.
Speaking at a news conference, Nasser cited “protocol” as the reason for agreeing to the request from North Korea, a full UN member. One diplomat said the reason for granting the request was probably because Kim was an acting head of state.

A reminder: North Korea is under UN sanctions because of its nuclear program (and ought to be under them for being a nuclear proliferator), and many of its people eat grass because there is nothing else to eat. That the United Nations considers Kim worthy of emulation speaks volumes as to the mentality that pervades the organization.
