On this day:

Kim Jong-Il

Yesterday, North Koreans were forced to celebrate the birth of Kim Jong-Il. Today, we mourn its aftermath.
North Korea flouted the international community last Thursday by announcing it had nuclear weapons and was staying away from international nuclear talks where the United States, China, Japan, Russia and South Korea have urged it to abandon its nuclear ambitions...

"The Americans swagger like a tiger around the world, but they whimper before our Republic as the tiger does before the porcupine,'' Pyongyang Radio said. "That's because we have our Great Leader Kim Jong Il, who is undefeatable.''
(By the way, did anyone notice if the Little Dictator showed up for his party?)
