The Evil Elder

Question: What is evil, decrepit and smells like peanuts?

Answer: You guessed it.

Bird droppings

Former President Jimmy Carter has sent North Korea a message of condolence over the death of Kim Jong-il and wished “every success” to the man expected to take over as dictator, according to the communist country’s state-run news agency.

A dispatch from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Mr. Carter sent the message to Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il’s son and heir apparent.

“In the message Jimmy Carter extended condolences to Kim Jong Un and the Korean people over the demise of leader Kim Jong Il. He wished Kim Jong Un every success as he assumes his new responsibility of leadership, looking forward to another visit to [North Korea] in the future,” the KCNA dispatch read.

When contacted by The Washington Times for comment, the Carter Center provided an email contact to a spokeswoman who is out of the office until the New Year.

North Korea is routinely labeled as one of the world’s most oppressive governments under an eccentric personality cult surrounding the Kim family. Harrowing reports from defectors describe North Korea as a dirt-poor nation filled with concentration camps and Communist propaganda. Kim Jong-il ran the reclusive country according to a “military first” policy since the mid-1990s, after a famine that may have killed as many as 2 million people.

Mr. Carter has visited North Korea twice — including a 1994 visit for talks on nuclear issues that led to a deal in which North Korea agreed to dismantle its nuclear-weapons program in exchange for oil deliveries and the construction of two nuclear reactors. That deal collapsed in 2002.

The former U.S. president also downplayed a 2010 North Korean attack on a South Korean island and disclosure of a uranium enrichment facility, saying the acts were merely “designed to remind the world that they deserve respect in negotiations that will shape their future.”

I guess it makes sense that Carter cozies up to the world’s evil dictators like he does, because he is destined to spend a lot of time with them.

Like an eternity.

    oppressive? the actual worlds largest prison…is the nk

    the plan fell apart, because kim never had any intention of ending his nuke program….he keeps power through fear and a program of brainwashing

    he and his father are responsible for the deaths of millions of their own people

    carter, who allegedly based most of his foreign policy on human rights…is a filthy hypocrite

    you dont reach out to a monster

    wonder if carter reached out to havel’s family and the czech republic…i hope not

    havel was a true friend to the jew and to israel….and he was not a hypocrite when it came to freedom and calling a dictator a dictator

    But at least the North Korean slaves are not being oppressed and humiliated by Jews!

      Exactly! That’s why the “International” Solidarity Movement is silent about Syria, other Arab dictators, and North Korea. They don’t care about the real victims of oppression/repression, they care about the Joos!
