The world’s bloodiest, most ruthless dictator is sending his sister to Pyeongchang for the Winter Olympics this week, and Donald Kirk on the Daily Beast finds it, in a phrase, “charming.”
On Wednesday, Kirk made a fuss over the attendance of Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, characterizing her as some refreshing it lady, whereas on the identical time throwing Pence and American diplomacy underneath the bus. Kirk squealed, “North Korea is stealing the thunder, if not the show, from the Americans at the Pyeongchang Olympics, with word that the charming younger sister of Kim Jong Un is arriving Friday.”
The psychotic dictator’s sister is “sure to become a luminary in the South Korean media.” So far more attention-grabbing than grumpy previous U.S. Veep Mike Pence, who’s a part of “the same old boring story — more sanctions of questionable value in persuading Kim Jong Un to abandon his nuclear program.”
The “Vice Director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department” is the primary member of the Kim dynasty to have ever stepped foot in South Korea, and he or she will probably be there to cheer on the athletes from her nation. Kirk says this makes Pence’s “pugnacious words,” “talking darkly of the need for North Korea to ‘once and for all abandon its nuclear weapon program,’” appear “out of sync” with North Korea’s delicate tenor bid “to win hearts and minds in South Korea.”
President Moon Jae-In is hopeful that the Olympics could be a approach to open communication between North and South, nonetheless Pence’s “tough words” have put the president in a tough place between leftists, who need peaceable reconciliation with Kim Jong Un, and proper wingers, who search America’s assist in an aggressive stance towards the North.
In the meantime, these warfare-loving Americans are rattling their sabers, “planning annual war games that always inspire torrents of rhetoric from North Korea.” They will embody “B1 bombers based in Guam that have flown periodically just below the North-South line in an obvious effort to intimidate the North Koreans.”
Of course, Donald Kirk mentions that the conservatives in South Korea have been “embarrassing” for all the nation. Their enthusiastic “waving of South Korean and American flags” and harsh phrases about North Koreans, typically those that present up for athletic or cultural occasions, apparently appear to be liabilities for the approaching peace. Yeah, proper.
It looks as if they don’t name Kim Yo Jong the Vice Director of Propaganda and Agitation for nothing. She appears to have duped a number of libs on the market.
