The North Korean state-run media is supporting John Kerry for U.S. President, hoping that he will be soft on communism. Their deferential treatment of him has included playing up polls showing he could defeat Bush and broadcasting his speeches throughout North Korea on Radio Pyongyang.
Iranian leaders like Senator John Kerry. Does that say something?
North Korea likes Senator John Kerry. Does that say something?
According to Financial Times Andrew Ward in Seoul and James Harding in Washington, North Korean media is taking quite ambitiously and kindly to Kerry for United States President. How very interesting for those of us who champion George W. Bush for US President.
"North Korea Warms to Kerry Presidency Bid" headlines the Financial Times piece.
North Korea smilingly regards Kerry as soft on global terrorism. Hes an easy catch when it comes to living with those doing nuclear build-ups. Hes not going to be aggressive like GWB when it comes to protecting the planet from killers international.
North Korea sees Kerry as an idealist who is more pliable for playing with. Hes more gullible, in other words.
Therefore, its with "reverential reporting" that North Koreas media gives center stage coverage to Kerry. Hes become a favorite for headlines, even to the extent of his speeches being plastered throughout. His oratory has made it big time on Radio Pyongyang. His rhetoric has come into its own through the Korea Central News Agency, "the official mouthpiece of Mr. Kims communist regime.
Does that say something?
Around the world, those regimes that are into clandestine activities, seeking to do in democracy planting and further their own global control agendas are becoming willing fans of Kerry and Team. They are unabashedly broadcasting their applause for his winning the presidency come November.
With such friends on Americas side, why fear the future? Right?
Kerry links with Jane Fonda once again. Vietnam Vets are up in arms about his playing hero while exploiting them as criminals, accusing them of setting loose atrocities numerous. And now North Korea sees him as a kiss-up major.
North Koreans think that Kerry is right-on when "pledging to adopt a more sincere attitude toward North Korea if elected."
Again, I repeat, does this say something important or does this say something important?

Quite a contrast illustrated there, N. Korea vs S. Korea, huh ?
Like Kerry, N. Korea is working in the dark.
Oh, yeah. Mark Steyn has a way with words. I like most of his articles I've seen.
... It's really kind of sad, when you think of the people who live there!!
It really is. My sister-in-law told me a few years ago that she had gone to Korea and it really is sad. She told me about the starving kids there. It is inhumane what the N. Korean Communists have done there.
I read an article just a few minutes ago about a letter of criticism that Amnesty International sent regarding the death penalty given to John Allen Muhammad for the Beltway Sniper murders. I wonder if they have ever weighed in on atrocities that N. Korea has committed ? Or Saddam Hussein ? Or Al-Qaeda ? Or any other of the mass murderers in the world ? ...
s/b she had gone to NORTH Korea ...
I'm surprised your sister in law was even able to get into North Korea! Remember a year or so ago when they opened the border and let relatives see each other for the first time in years?
As I recall, I think it was years ago when she worked for the 'Vice-Mayor' of Shenyang, in mainland China. She doesn't work for them anymore now that she has been in the U.S. for 8 years and has her permanent residency now.
The two China's hate each other. When the Kumantang (sp?) left Mainland China and went to Formosa. It's now called Taiwan. Mainland China keeps rattling their swords at Taiwan and the U.S. takes sides with Taiwan. Rightfully so too, imho. The Mainland Communists have killed so many innocents over the last 55 years ...
