|Kim Says No to Non-proliferation Treaty|
Playboy dictator Kim Jong Il, of the People's Paradise Utopian Republic of North Korea has pulled out
of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
This is arguably the most honest thing he has done in his entire career.
Mostly the left is staying silent about recent developments on the Korean
Peninsula, being unable to blame the US for the developments without
using the kind of bent logic
that would embarrass even a self-justifying Cheryl Kernot.
But others are carrying on about North Korea breaking international law by
pulling out of the treaty. This has to be expected of people who are naive or
dishonest enough to believe in the existence of international law - a
fundamental contradiction in itself.
Treaties are not
enduring. Unless the treaty specifies a given expiration date, participants can
pull out of them when they choose. North Korea agreed to be a signatory to the
treaty - and have now announced that they no longer are.
The fundamental dishonesty in the actions of North Korea was in continuing to
develop the nukes while they were still signatories. But did anyone think
the Korean government was honest? [OK, thanks Bill - put your hand down now,
and do up your trousers too, and can you stop that young woman doing that
until we are finished ..?].
Does the North Korean government have the right
to abandon the treaty. Well, they have the same rights to abandon it as they
had to sign it in the first place - none. The North Korean government is not a
legitimate government in that it gives its people neither democracy or freedom.
When the US, and the corrupt undemocratic rabble
in the UN accepted
the late Kim Il Sung's signature on the treaty, they accepted his regime as the
legitimate government. They have little choice now, but to accept as
legitimate Kim Jong Il's right to abandon it. Dubya kind of inherited this from
Bill, just as KJI inherited rights from KIS.
Of course the US are also quite within their rights to take pre-emptive
defensive action. Whether the threat is great enough to nuke Pyongyang is a
question that we will be debating for a very long time - regardless of whether
it happens or not.
But the Korean peninsula is a bit cold this time of year (that's must be
why so many North Koreans are freezing and starving to death, while the South
Koreans are doing so well). The Americans are going to spend this winter
someone a little warmer. Somewhere where there's more .. sun.
