Re “A few not unkind words for Kim Jong-il,” by Maralyn Lois Polak—
Kim. Kim, our quite often contrary Maralyn. Two nuts don’t make an edible salad.
I just sweated through an Al Jazeera documentary that reported how our tactical Agent Orange bombings from the Korean War are still afflicting both live and yet unborn North Koreans, almost 50 years on. For moral squalor, our McNamara domino foolishness easily matches the insanely sobbing funeral of North Korea’s Dear Leader.
We have let the military-industrial complex bring us to the brink of bankruptcy. They are starving their own masses. Who’s nutsier?
