(PresidentialWire.com)- Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, condemned the United Nations and the United States of America in a statement issued on Sunday. Her complaint? That the U.S. and the U.N. had passed a resolution on North Korea’s plethora of human rights abuses against its own citizens.
Kim accused the United States of being home to “all kinds of social evils and acts of institutional human rights violations,” but couldn’t find anything in the United States that is quite as bad as starving your own people, letting dead bodies pile up in the streets, punishing people who try to leave the country, and killing political opponents.
It’s not even close, is it? Even with America’s serious social and political problems.
In the statement, Kim also slammed South Korean Defense Minister Suh Wook, calling him a “scum-like guy,” and threatening that there would be a “disaster” for South Korea.
The statement comes after South Korea elected a new, conservative president, Yoon Suk-yeol. When the new president takes office in May, it will see South Korea come closer to the United States and implement new foreign policy measures designed to make life even harder for North Korea.
President Moon Jae-in, the current president, worked to improve dialogue and cooperation with North Korea in the hope that Kim Jong Un will come around to the idea of ending the Korean War and bringing the two nations together…and to avoid nuclear war, of course.
But that hasn’t worked, so far – at least, it stopped working once President Donald Trump left the White House.
The new president will usher in a new era of strength in the face of North Korean human rights abuses and aggression. So it’s no wonder that Kim is angry, is it?
Kim’s comments about Suh Wook also came in response to a statement he made during a recent event, in which he said that the South Korean military “possesses large numbers and various types of missiles that have greatly improved in terms of ranges, accuracy and power, and it has capabilities to accurately and swiftly strike any targets in North Korea.”
It sounds like North Korea is scared.
And they probably should be.
