North Korea, led by the cherubic and certifiably insane Kim Jong Un, has been dominating the Asian news cycles in recent weeks.
The despotic regime, famous for their unparalleled isolationism and empty threats against any and all nations to dare cross them, has been ramping up their illegal ballistic missile tests in recent months. One theory for this newfound aggression has to do with claims from defectors that Kim Jong Un is losing his grip on the media in his nation, with unregulated internet finally reaching pockets of the dictatorship.
Another theory is much more simple; Kim Jong Un thinks that he should be playing with the big boys. The only problem is that his skin is far too thin.
“Senator John McCain made the inflammatory remarks while discussing the tyrant’s recent ballistic missile tests and his repeated threats to destroy the US.
“In an interview on MSNBC, McCain called for action against cheese and wine-loving Kim before it is too late.
“He said: ‘China is the only one that can control Kim Jong-un, this crazy fat kid that’s running North Korea. They could stop North Korea’s economy in a week.’
“’They haven’t, because the Chinese have to understand there’s a penalty… imposed by us if they don’t reign in an individual that can literally start a world war, and more importantly, perhaps in the short term, strike the United States of America.’”
While North Korea’s ability to actually strike the United States with a nuclear weapon is a highly debatable subject, Kim Jong Un has been launching a bevy of missiles into the Sea of Japan, further aggravating the region.
Pyongyang’s leadership is not only complicit in capitulating the young dictator, but they are also possibly responsible for egregious human rights violations. Several defectors from the hermitic nation have reported unbelievable abuses at the hands of government officials occurring in forced labor camps across North Korea. The tales escaping from these institutions have no rival except for the horrors of the Jewish Holocaust.
While war with North Korea would likely be a catalyst for massive tensions between the United States and China, the possibility that Kim Jong Un is committing atrocities comparable to those of the Third Reich would be enough to justify removing him from power.
