STRAIGHT TALKING

By David Vance On December 20th, 2011

Well said John McCain!

U.S. Senator John McCain has said the world is better off now that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il is dead. 

McCain, a Republican lawmaker who was his party’s nominee for president in 2008, said that Kim subjected his people to ‘dire poverty and cruel oppression under one of the most totalitarian regimes the world has ever known.’ ‘The world is a better place now that Kim Jong-Il is no longer in it,’ McCain said.

McCain’s political colleagues, including GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, have joined the prominent and outspoken senator in saying bluntly that Kim will not be missed after decades of oppression and threatening the world with his nuclear programme. But McCain, the top-ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee who was tortured as a prisoner during the Vietnam war, didn’t pull any punches.

He said, ‘I can only express satisfaction that the Dear Leader is joining the likes of Gaddafi, Bin Laden, Hitler, and Stalin in a warm corner of hell.’

Amen to that. Pity Romney could not have been a bit more direct but then again that’s what I expect from him.

  1. But what is the Great Successor going to be like? He could be worse.

  2. I am reading that the US State Dept thinks the successor might be more psycho than the dad.

  3. The successor won’t be the only actor there. You have an insane power structure in place, who don’t care very much for the welfare of their citizens.

    The normal rules absolutely do not apply in this communist monarchy, unique in all the world.

  4. I can not praise McCain even when he gets it right, he’s a traitor to the constitution and a failure as a pilot, and prisoner of war

  5. Patty- I can believe that. He’s 28, has absolute power and has been raised in the Bizarro world that is North Korea.

    If he isn’t nuts then I’d be amazed.

  6. I might wonder if he does have absolute power as an individual.

    He may be on the way to having it, but I think there is a clique that will have a say until this very green individual ” proves himself ” in their eyes.

  7. I suspect he is a puppet figure. He and his weird brothers are out of a cartoon.

    Troll’s envy of McCain’s war record is well known to the readers of these pages.

  8. Yes.

    Troll’s comments about McCain over time are shameful. And it is noted that he supports Newt, a guy who, like Clinton, made damned sure that he didn’t serve in the military.

    No one here is fit to shine McCain’s shoes when it comes to military service, with the exception of Ernest, who served in the Korean War, no day at the beach.

  9. Patty –

    “I am reading that the US State Dept thinks the successor might be more psycho than the dad.”

    That’s what the CIA wants you to believe.

    Look, they can’t tell you if he’s 27 or 28, they can’t tell you exactly how many siblings he has, but they have his psychological profile down well enough to match him against his father? This is nonsense.

    What we know for definite is that he went to a Swiss boarding school in his teens. His former classmates say he was a normal lad, a little shy and he liked playing basketball.

    Hopefully this exposure to normality in the West will have sufficiently corrupted the despotic family gene.

  10. He was raised like a veal until he was allowed to go to a Swiss Boarding School where he was followed around by State Officials until such time as they disappeared him back into North Korea. He apparently thought he was going to the NBA, and would have made it if not for his lack of ability, speed, height and reality. No doubt he never lost a game in North Korea (His late father having once shot a 38 with 11 holes in one accordign to North Korean State television).

    Other siblings include a brother who fell out of favor for trying to sneak into Japan’s Disney with a passport from the Domincan Republic.

    Yes, I can see how we could have high hopes for this new leader.

  11. “this communist monarchy, unique in all the world.”

    Imagine, only three more generations and they’ll have caught up with the Winsors!

  12. The CIA told us that Yuri Andropov was a jazz-loving, port-sipping closet capitalist. In reality he was the blood-soaked head of the KGB and remained so until he died. Let’s wait and see how the Great Successor gets on. If he pursues moderation and re-unification, what will the US do to justify its weaponry in the far reaches of the Pacific?
