If this has been discussed before, then I apologize. I wasn't able to find anything on it using ATS' incredible search tools!!
Anyway, I often wonder about this myself and was interested in what others thought. Is Kim Jong Il, the dictator of North Korea, mentally insane? Or
do you think he's a rational human being? This has been discussed in the media before. Honestly, I just hope for the sake of mankind that he is
sane and is just a bad person.
North Korea is by far the most repressive and evil regime in the past century, with maybe the exception of the Khmer Rouge which killed 1/4 to 1/3 of
the citizens of Cambodia during a short 3 year reign of terror under Pal Pot. Satellite imagery has shown concentration camps in North Korea where
hundreds of thousands of citizens are being held in horrible conditions. The people, who have been able to survive the frequent famens there, have
resorted to digging up bodies from grave yards to eat.
There's also no such thing as "politics." They don't know what that means. All there is to them is the Great Leader Kim Jong Il whom they owe
everything to and is their God. They're not allowed to have radios, tv's, or anything like that. The punishment for pocessing such devices could
mean death. I truly don't think that the majority of American's even know or realize how evil this country's government truly is. Any food aid
that is sent to the country for their citizens is instead given to the nation's 1 million+ troops. No one is allowed to leave the country, unless
they're a foreign diplomat. No one is allowed to visit the country except when accompanied by North Korean officials and are only allowed in a very,
very limited area.
Rumors are also abound that Kim Jong Il has one of the largest and most extensive PORNOGRAPHY (this isn't a joke) collections around. He's already
named one of his sons as heir to his thrown, so the chances of anything improving there anytime soon are remote without outside intervention.
Sorry for rambling on and on, I just want people to be aware of the evils of this country. It makes places like Saudi Arabia and Iran look like
Utopia. So what do you think... Is Kim Jong Il certifiably insane from what you've seen and heard? Or is he a rational leader who just has a
deadly thirst for power?
Before I end this, I just want to ask all the liberals and self-hating Americans not to even post in this thread if you're going to turn it into an
America-bashing contest. I'm sick of reading on here how evil the United States is and what a war monger George W. Bush is. So please keep that
stuff out of this thread, and lets discuss the issue at hand: the sanity of Kim Jong Il.
I hope and pray, and thus believe, that the man is sane. They could have anywhere from 2 to 8 nuclear weapons. They are developing ballistic
missiles capable of hitting the western US and Alaska. Over 30,000 American troops as well as millions of innocent South Koreans are within shelling
distance of Pyongyang. Let's just hope for the sake of humanity that this is a rational human being!
