Kim Jong-il Determined to Feed His People

North Korea's paramount leader Kim Jong-il is reportedly determined to realize his father's will, which he has so far failed to achieve: feeding the people.

"I am resolute in my determination to enhance people's living standards in the shortest possible time so that they don't have to envy the life of people in other countries," he said, according to a North Korea's official Web site, Uriminjokkiri.

Kim's father, Kim Il-sung, was a famous guerilla fighter against the Japanese colonial occupiers and founded the nation.

Kim Il-sung left a will that called for building a nation in which people could "eat rice and meat soup, wear clothes made of silk and live in a shingle-roofed house," an expression that symbolizes a well-off living state.

"Even though our nation has become a powerful state in terms of political ideology and the military, but it is much lacking in terms of people's living standards," Yonhap cited the web site, saying Kim's remark had originally appeared on the state-run Rodong Sinmun.

"We have yet to realize the will of the late supreme leader," Kim said, mentioning the common title of his late father.

"Currently, the (Worker's) party is unfolding a great scheme and operations to bring about the critical turning point for improving people's livelihood," Kim said, in the report.

According to Chosun Ilbo, Chia Head also said the following:

“철갑상어떼를 보셨을 때도 우리 인민들에게 철갑상어 고기맛과 알젓맛을 보이고 싶은 심정으로 가슴을 불태웠다”

Translated into English, it says,

"Upon seeing a school of Sturgeon, (Kim Jong-il's) heart burned up with the desire to feed people with its meat and eggs(caviar.)"

Ordinary N. Koreans do not know what caviar is, but he knows it well because it is one of his favorite delicacies. This propaganda piece is so far-out. He is the single largest obstacle to people starving. If he cares about them so much, he should off himself, but it won't happen, would it?

Little else is requisite to carry a state
to the highest degree of opulence
from the lowest barbarism
but peace, easy taxes, and a
tolerable administration of justice:
all the rest being brought about
by the natural course of things.

Nonsense. Prosperity is brought about by having a Senator who “fights for North Dakota,” and a President who “never rests” until America is “transformed.”

I just heard on John Batchelor a few days ago about how Teddy Roosevelt sold Korea into slavery to Japan.

T.R., Wilson, F.D.R., L.B.J., Carter, Clinton, Obama.

All evil. And each one worse than the last.

He should kill himself and his carcass should be ground up and used as fertilizer to grow crops to feed the people with.

He should set down with the DNC and work out a shared policy.

I have never known much good
done by those who affected to trade
for the public good.

That is true. The deal was sealed by Taft, Teddy's Secretary of War, and Katsura Taro, Japanese PM, in 1905. It is called Taft-Katsura Memorandum.

Ironically, in a couple of years North Koreans will have a standard of living on a par with the US, but it won’t be due to an increase on their part ...

The world will be coming down close to them, as far as standard of living goes. It appears that Wall St. cares about N. Korea in a ‘mysterious’ way. It is not just God who does things in a mysterious way. Come to think of it, Goldman Sachs CEO recently said, “They are doing God’s work.” So maybe divine wisdom is tricking down to Wall St./sarc

These men (government officials), in point of fact, are seldom if ever moved by anything rationally describable as public spirit; there is actually no more public spirit among them than among so many burglars or street-walkers.

...but first, he has to acquire 1000 more bottles of hennesey and single malt scotch for his cellar, buy that 1968 restored muscle car he's always wanted, add another wing to his summer mansion for his favorite concubine, and kill a few mid-level party members whose loyalty is in question.

"...that they don't have to envy the life of people in other countries..."

But I thought they were totally closed off from the rest of the world. How would they know? I thought it was a paradise and Dear Leader took good care of them.
