North Korea seeks $65 trillion in damages from US (Barf Alert)
Economic Times ^ | 6/24/2010 | Economic Times

Cash-strapped North Korea demanded on Thursday that the United States pay almost $65 trillion in compensation for six decades of hostility.

The cost of the damage done by the United States since the peninsula was divided in 1945 is estimated at $64.96 trillion, the official news agency said, in a report on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the start of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The figure includes $26.1 trillion arising from US "atrocities" which left more than five million North Koreans dead, wounded, kidnapped or missing, KCNA said.

Six decades of US sanctions had caused a loss of $13.7 trillion by 2005 while property losses were estimated at $16.7 dollars, said the agency which also listed a large number of smaller claims.

North Koreans have "the justifiable right" to receive the compensation for their blood, it said.

The war started on June 25, 1950, with a North Korean invasion approved by the then-Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

The Communist country insists that South Korea and its US ally instigated the conflict, in which a US-led United Nations force fought for the South and China backed the North.

Pelosi will add them into the next bailout package.

If we nuke them, that should cause a few trillion worth of damage.

Seriously, they simply aren’t worth that much and even if some world court decides in their favor, how can they collect?

I’m willing to give them a few million in nukes, delivered as warheads from our air and naval assets.

Send lil Kimmy a Playstation 3 and a Doc Johnson inflatable love doll, and throw in a bottle of Johnny Walker Red and that’ll shut up the little em-effer for a year or two.

Obama is far too good a negotiator to fall for this! He will counter-offer to “split the difference” and pay them just $32.5 trillion. Then he’ll go on national TV and brag about how his administration “saved” us 32.5 trillion dollars. Just like if he had not done the stimulus every single person in the USA would be unemployed by now, by his way of reckoning.

Let’s send them BHO. He wants to lead a communist/socialist country and knows how to get, use and spend everyone elses money. Should be worth that much to NK.
