Kim Jong Il
Why is the media glorifying a man responsible for the deaths of millions upon millions of North Koreans, either directly or indirectly? Why is the media recalling his 'strengths' which have encumbered his people for decades? Why are they defending and celebrating a man who starves his people and where the people living have stunted growth due to malnutrition? Who murders dissenters? Who sends dissenters' families to concentration camps where they die in a short time? Who rules with such a tight fist that only his books are allowed in the country? Where his image is the only image in any building? The only city with electricity is the capital where he lives? The only city with food instead of starvation is the capital where he lives? The man who gives humanitarian aid to only the military and his faithful followers? Who refuses to let doctors in to give aid because they would reveal his atrocities? Why is the media concerned over unrest with the possible weakness of his successor? That should be celebrated as the best hope for the North Koreans.
