Everyone is familiar with the saying “don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” Well, perhaps everyone except for Kim Jong Un and the North Korean government. Heck, they don’t even abide by the rule “don’t threaten to nuke the hand that feeds you.”
At the same time that the Hermit Kingdom is threatening the United States, Japan, South Korea, and other nations with nuclear annihilation, they are also asking for roughly half a million tons of food from those nations.
On Monday, the North Korean government wrote an editorial in Rodong Sinmun, the state-controlled national newspaper, warning citizens to brace for famine and economic hardship—as though they haven’t already been suffering for decades.
The delusional leaders inside the reclusive communist state obviously feel it is more important to rattle their sabers at the West and their neighbors by firing ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan and boasting about nuking Manhattan than to be able to feed their own people.
