Huh, you ask? That’s right - according to Reuters (January 19, 2012) South Korean presidential-hopeful Huh Kyung-young – the head of the Democratic Republican Party – wants to move the U.N. headquarters to the DMZ.
“With the U.N. headquarters located in Korea, there would be no war on the Korean Peninsula. Then, I will unify the world and lead efforts to mediate between the global powers,” he said.
Of course this isn’t anything new, he suggested doing it back in 2007 but for different reasons:
If the UN HQ is moved to the Panmmunjon, 500 organizations will move with it, which means our economy will grow threefold.
But we know (or at least he thinks he does) he has the power to do it:
Like a light from the east, I have appeared for this era, and since I can see the future, I have planned my Internet strategy way back in the past. With my 430 IQ, I can also control the spiritual domain.
I have also read 35 religious scriptures from several religions, and concluded that they have no value. The religions have prepared for my coming and I’m the one who will complete them.
He claims to have an IQ of 430 and the ability to perform miracle cures.
“I can change 23 chromosomes and 40,000 DNA in the human body. If someone is diagnosed with uterine cancer, I can treat the cancer within 0.1 seconds just by looking into the patient’s eyes,” Huh said.
Yes, I know I repeated the IQ of 430 but who can’t be impressed by an IQ of 430? I can fully understand your skepticism but did you know that Michael Jackson, three days prior to his death, visited Huh in his dreams? Not good enough? He was also able to control George W. Bush’s thinking. Did you know that (paraphrasing Min) the late President Park Chung-hee approved Huh’s marriage to Park Geun-hye and that it was Park’s dying wish to see them married and living in the Blue House? Well, don’t feel bad if you didn’t know about the marriage because apparently she didn’t either and this landed Huh not in the Blue House but in jail after he was sued for libel.
One has to admire Huh’s determination (remember back in 2007 when Min predicted Huh would run in the 2012 election – uncanny) – after all, this is his fourth attempt but apparently this time he is going to use the Time Magazine Man of the Year approach:
[Huh] plans to launch a fan club to boost his chances in the polls and said he expects to attract a million members.
“Nowadays, I am so popular that I get several phone calls every second from my fans. I am thinking of reporting myself to Guinness World Records as the man who receives the largest number of phone calls in the world,” he said.
And if he wins ”he will give newly-married couples 100 million won ($87,300) and hand 700,000 won to each pensioner.”
It is going to be a great year for politics.
