"Yankees have turned Iraq into a chasm of death," an unidentified committee spokesman said, according to the North's official NCNA news agency.


The abuses "are a continuation of hideous terrorism and human rights abuses the U.S. has perpetrated against other countries and nations throughout its history, as it is known to be an empire of evil whose main mission is to commit aggression, murder, terrorism and maltreatment," the spokesman said.

2. North Korea?
The only countries even remotely qualified to criticeze the United States are liberal democracies. I'm afraid North Korea isn't quite up to the standards needed to point fingers at our nation.

8. I just love threads like this.
Kim Jong Il is a fine one to talk. But -- he's got a point. It's such a sad day when a lunatic tin-pot dictator who wants to play chess with nuclear weapons actually makes sense.
