This week, it emerged that Mr Kim is to receive yet another prestigious title - though for once it has not been bestowed by the North Korean state. Instead he is in line for an international award extolling his "peace, justice and humanity" thanks to an Indonesian charity. It is the second unusual award to be bestowed upon the North Korean leader, who was crowned TIME magazine's Person of the Year in 2012 after the public vote was hijacked by internet pranksters.

wow just wow I don't know were to even begin with this?

Do I crack jokes (so so many) or get outraged?

But anyway it looks like our favorite fat little dictator got awarded the Indonesian award of peace "peace, justice and humanity".

All I can say is I thought mind altering drugs were illegal in Indonesia?

Wonder if they get some hefty aid from NoKo.

This is ridiculous, and the second time that they have given this out to one of the Kimmies?

It's nearly as absurd as President Obama receiving his Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

They must have assumed he was sabotaging his own nuclear programs.

Well, we do have to ask ourselves if the people commenting in the article do have a valid point.


"The allegations about human rights abuses are untrue," said Rachmawati Sukarnoputri, who runs the Sukarno Education Foundation.



"That's all just Western propaganda. Those Western governments like to put ugly labels on North Korea."



Rachmawati, who is the daughter of Indonesia's founding president, drew parallels between Kim the younger and her own father, who ruled the Southeast Asian archipelago until he was overthrown in 1965.
"Sukarno was also accused of being an evil dictator who violated human rights, but this was proven otherwise over time," she said.
Not everyone is shocked by the announcement, with local newspaper The Jakarta Globe pointing out the foundation has previously given the same award to Kim's grandfather Kim Il-sung, who founded the North Korean dictatorship.

Indeed. A potential 200,000 people in prison camps. Compare that to 2.3 million is US prisons.

If Obama can get a peace prize, why not Kim?

Given the history of the person the award is named after its not surprising. Its the founder of the Philippines who worked closely with the Japanese during WWII and then the Russians and Chinese since to fight against "Imperialism". A theme that is common with little Kimmy in N. Korea.

Believing the civil rights abuses in N. Korea are nothing but propaganda is laughable to say the least.

Prank or not, I say give it to him. The whole notion that any of that has meaning died with Obama's Nobel Peace Prize.

I'd say the Nobel Peace Prize has been dead or a joke at best since 1973. Obama getting it just made it even more of a charade.
