North Korea: Storybook Diplomacy
North Korea does neither minces its words nor cares for political correctness, which is quite expected; how else can you grab the headlines nowadays? Obama is thus described in a recent statement regarding the shut-down of the country's internet (and by the country's internet we mean Kim Jong-un's wifi) by American hackers as "reckless, like a monkey in a tropical forest". Which, come to think of it is kind of restrained for them, conjuring (bar the racial slur) inadvertently cute images from the Jungle Book. In any case, it could have been worse: "reckless, like a rabid homicidal monkey on a raping spree in a convent". Reassuringly though the statement ends with the promise of "inescapable deadly blows".
