It takes an “intellectual” to be this stupid.
After squinting through binoculars into a nation frozen in time, US President Barack Obama reeled off a contempt-laden and startlingly frank indictment of North Korea.
The Stalinist remnant of the Cold War was, in Obama’s eyes, nothing but a nation which cannot make “anything of any use”, “doesn’t work”, and even its vaunted weapons exports were hardly state of the art.
“It is like you are in a time warp,” Obama said Sunday, after he toured a rocky border post in the demilitarised buffer zone that has split the Korean peninsular for longer than he has been alive.
“It is like you are looking across 50 years into a country that has missed 40 years or 50 years of progress,” Obama marvelled later, after taking a helicopter back to teeming, prosperous Seoul, just 25 miles (40 kilometres) away.
Incredible as it may seem (even for him), he really doesn’t seem to have known all this until just now. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take them at their word when you go crawling to the bargaining table to make some meaningless agreement or other with them though, does it, Perfesser? Nor does it mean we should fail to pay proper respect to their system of governance and ideology, or pass judgment on them as being somehow “inferior” to our own. That just wouldn’t do.
And lest we kid ourselves for a moment that His Royal Majesty was ever actually in any danger of learning something, there’s the blinding irony of this sentence ever leaving his lying yap:
“There are certain things that just don’t work and what they are doing doesn’t work.”
Pretty fuckin’ rich coming from a socialist, innit? Further droning calls for more of the same tired Leftist “solutions” from the useless tool just as soon as his handlers have him safely re-inserted into his warm, cozy cocoon back at the Imperial Palace.
