War of Words
At the press conference earlier this week George stated that he was working towards a diplomatic solution to resolve the tension between the U.S. and North Korea. Based on this exchange of words I'm guessing it's not time to invite Kim Jong over to the Crawford ranch for a tour of the gardens just yet...
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea called Vice President Dick Cheney a "bloodthirsty beast" on Thursday, in response to Cheney saying the North's leader Kim Jong-il was irresponsible and ran a police state.
"Cheney is hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast, as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood," a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency.
Washington and North Korea have been in the midst of a war of words in recent weeks, with President Bush calling the North's Kim a tyrant. Pyongyang has shot back calling Bush a half-baked man and a Philistine.
Meanwhile back in Crawford...
George: Laura he called me a Philistine. What does that mean?
Laura: George just remember, sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you.
Is this what we have come to; our world leaders are resorting to school yard tactics of eight year old boys? Expect shoving matches to follow. Can we just expel them both and get on with preparing for the coming energy crisis?
