erm, they do have missiles, you know

I don’t usually bother with this kind of blog, but i happened to be on Twitter when it happened. Appearing on my screen was this from @pressdarling, an Aussie-based Tweeter.

“http://www.smh.com.au/ OMGOMGOMG CHECK OUT THE KIM JONG IL CAPTION OMGOMGOMG”

So of course, i looked -this was the Sydney Morning Herald’s front page.

And this is the pic close up. Kim Jong-Il is of course the dictator of North Korea which tested a missile over the weekend, and over Japan.

There just aren’t words, lol.

It’s gone already, but SMH say “US President Barack Obama has urged the regime to hold back [on testing missiles], saying the North must learn that “it can’t threaten the safety and security of other countries with impunity.” “

Or what, we’ll Photoshop you doing something bizarre? Yes, we’ll let the satirists take the piss. Ooh, i know, let’s call you names, that will work.

It’s supposedly a publicity stunt. Well, here’s one blog’s worth of publicity.

Postscript: Turns out he said that about himself. Whilst making smalltalk with a woman and her husband he’d had kidnapped from South Korea. The Sydney Morning Herald has more.
