SAY WHAT???


UN honors North Korea's Kim Jong-il

The UN General Assembly granted a request from North Korea to hold a moment of silence Thursday for Kim Jong-il, the country's former leader who died Saturday, though Western envoys said they would boycott it.

The guy killed MILLIONS of his own people and they have a minute of silence for this SOB??

Totally DISGUSTING. The UN shows it's true colors yet again.

You are right. They are honouring that evil midget instead of driving a stake through his heart which has shown goodness only when it stopped beating. Soon they'll have a Hall of Fame with his picture between Stalin and Pol Pot. Spineless idiots...

If one thinks about it, this makes perfect sense actually and I don't believe it was intended as anything negative at all. Clever...if I'm right. lol....

Ban Ki-Moon is the United Nations Secretary General. He's South Korean. He grew up during the Korean War and considers that fact important enough to have prominently on this UN biography page. Wasn't South Korea just sending propaganda balloons across the DMZ?

What better way to help ingratiate with the North Korean people than to try and present the UN as compassionate to what many of them truly feel as a horrible loss.....from a lifetime of indoctrination and isolation. If they hear anything from the outside...and perhaps THIS would get through because it's the mighty UN actually honoring 'Dear Leader'. Clever indeed....if that is Ban Ki-moon's thinking. Hmmmm

So why not just do away with sanctions?
Why not let them in on the security council ?

I think this a bad idea.MHO

Games within games... what's new? The DPRK is also so closed and institutionally paranoid of anything form the outside..I imagine they'll have to be pretty clever to get anything accomplished until or unless the North Korean government just internally collapses for strictly internal reasons. Who knows... No one knows enough to even say the odds of that for certain. It's quite a situation.

You are absolutely right! They should should have pissed on his grave and aggravated an already volatile situation even more!

Screw the people that would have to live under these conditions!

Amirite?

Or they're just trying to help already sour diplomatic relationships. What better way to start work on better relations with North Korea than pretending to care for the Dad of the now leader. Yes, Kim Jong Il was evil but the relations between the UN and North Korea aren't exactly great. I just think they're hoping they can have better relations with the son and perhaps influence reforms later on.

Yeah I know that this is a diplomatic move but come on. You don't honor tyrants, period.

I didn't say it was right or I agreed with it. I just suggested what I think is actually happening and I can't help but admire the cleverness of it all. I don't have to agree with the UN SG to say that wasn't a bad move on their part whether meant to be covert or as another suggested, overt to outright make friends with the new Kim....and Uncle....and Military..or whatever they are doing for sharing leadership in a menage...err.. nvm.
Quite a situation indeed.

The New Kim on the block hasn't actually done anything..quite yet anyway...to be a tyrant, BTW... Why annoy him with nothing gained? This was kind of a freebie for goodwill to a suffering population over there, either way. Oh well...
