I like the bit about the ‘new-born puppy’

As I’ve said a thousand times before, we’ll miss rhetoric like this when North Korea is gone:

North Korea threatened South Korea with “final destruction” during a debate at the United Nations Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday, saying it could take further steps after a nuclear test last week.

“As the saying goes, a new-born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea’s erratic behavior would only herald its final destruction,” North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong told the meeting.

This apparently left the Spanish ambassador “stupefied”:

“In the 30 years of my career I’ve never heard anything like it and it seems to me that we are not speaking about something that is even admissible, we are speaking about a threat of the use of force that is prohibited by Article 2.4 of the United Nations charter,” Catalina said.

I like Glenn Greenwald, but I think this may be why some folk are a tad uncomfortable with North Korea packing nukes.

    Funnier still is the part about them being a tiger. Who is a tiger? The piece of garbage, the filth, the fat, worthless retard, the mentally challenged wanker, the ugliest porker in the world Kim Jung Un? Their 70 year old generals? Their malnourished soldiers? The juche “philosophy” that sprang from the perverted and deformed mind of Kim Il Sung? Or the fat coward who died a dog’s death, Kim Jong Il? Who up there is a tiger? Please tell me.

    North Korea and China both always refer to the USA as the “tiger”.

    (North Korea is calling itself the “puppy” who knows NO fear of the USA).

    We’ve passed the point where the civilized world should simply expel North Korea from all important organizations for failing to meet minimum standards expected.

    Then that is one sick puppy. My wish: get KJU alone and beat his face in.

    Methinks the Spanish ambassador hasn’t been following North Korea very long (either that or he’s channeling Capt. Renault),

    If you took every North Korean threat at face value I don’t know how anyone would be able to keep their sanity.

    I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, to find that the NorKs would do something that is prohibited by Article 2.4 of the United Nations charter.

    You arrogant beast, such a provocation will be regarded as a declaration of war!
