In a visit to the heavily armed border with the South, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, ordered his troops on higher alert, escalating his militaristic language in spite of American calls to improve ties with the Seoul just a week after his country agreed to a nuclear freeze in return for badly needed food aid. .Mr. Kim has been hailed as the Norths leader since the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, in December, and has frequently visited frontline military units. But his trip to Panmunjon, a compound straddling the border where the armistice ending the Korean War was signed in 1953, was the first time he had put himself in full view and within the range of South Korean border guards.

It would have been funny if somehow Fat Bastard KJU, son of Chia Pet, had attempted to evade his guards and make a quick sprint across the MDL into the South to defect. He probably knows the buffet table is much more scrumptious down there in Seoul than up there in Pyongyang. He might have been tempted, only I doubt he could spring and Fiships probably would have ordered KPA guards to discharge their sidearms on that lard ass.
I see the cretins in the State Department have concluded yet another “agreement” with the North Koreans by which they make promises which they have absolutely no intention of keeping and we pay to feed their armed forces.
