Kim Jong Un gets fat, his people starve, and we should worry

Fox News and the New York Post report Kim Jong Un packed on another 70 pounds in the last year, as North Korea prepares for another famine.

From the New York Post:
Portly North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, whose hostile actions have brought crippling international sanctions to his impoverished nation, has a new message for the Hermit Kingdom’s starving masses: Get ready to eat plant roots.
Kim, whose weight the South Korean government estimates has ballooned to nearly 300 pounds, signaled through state media that the nation could be headed for another famine like the one that killed an estimated 3.5 million people in the 1990s.
“The road to revolution is long and arduous,” an editorial in the state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper said Monday, according to The Telegraph. “We may have to go on an arduous march, during which we will have to chew the roots of plants once again.”
“Arduous march” in North Korean is code for famine. It’s how state media described the disaster that struck when Kim was a mere teen, which experts say was brought on by the economic mismanagement of his father, Kim Jong Il, loss of foreign aid and natural disasters.
But Kim, who at 33 walks with a cane and reportedly suffers from gout, won’t miss any meals. Last September, South Korea disclosed that Kim appeared to have added nearly 70 pounds to his 5-foot, 9-inch frame over the previous five years, reaching an estimated weight of 290 pounds.
Photos released over the past year have shown Kim Jong Un’s rapid weight gain. The secretive regime hasn’t said much about it, but South Korean analysts suspect he’s been under severe stress. Investigators also note that he reportedly developed a taste for Emmental cheese while he was a student in Switzerland years ago.
Seems like a joke until one considers that he is putting together an ICBM capable of destroying Washington.

He is serious about it too, as he is willing to let millions of his people starve to keep his nuclear program alive.

But hey, let's all worry about Vladimir Putin who poses no threat at all, even as he sits on tons of ICBMs.

  1. Maybe he will eat himself into an early grave and let someone with some sense start running things. - Elric

    2. I would say there are plenty of educated and intelligent men in North Korea. And they are wise enough to keep their mouths shut for the time being. - Elric

  2. Hell, the deer here in Hedgesville were munching on pine needles at the the end of our 40 inch snowfall. Probably a better repast than what those poor people are in store for. And Barack/Kerry don't give a damn. Effing pathetic.

    1. If they did, though, what could they do?

  3. My sincerest hope is that if he shoots a missile at DC that it makes it all the way there instead of stopping short in flyover country.

  5. North Korea - Another triumph of socialism. But don't worry. Bernie will make it work here. After all, the only reason socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried is because the right people haven't been in charge.

  6. When the Romanian style revolution comes and KJU is deposed he will feed a lot of starving Norks.

  7. Definitely a candidate for a Jenny Craig program or Weight Watchers.
    I would rather see KJU eat himself to death.
