Young 'un, military genius

The NYT reports with a straight face about North Korea:

North Korea’s state-run television called its young untested leader, Kim Jong-un, a “military genius” on Sunday and showed him driving a tank, sitting in the cockpit of a warplane, and interacting with soldiers in a youthful display of camaraderie that was unlike the style of his late father.

The broadcast, a documentary on North Korea’s Central TV, also claimed that Mr. Kim, believed to be in his late 20s, oversaw the April 2009 test-launching of the country’s long-range rocket.

“I had determined to enter a war if the enemies dared to intercept” the rocket, he said in the program.
This doesn't seem quite so funny when one considers that Kim Young 'Un commands an army of 1.2 million men, or about double what Mr. Obama hopes to see for the U.S. Army by the time he leaves the presidency. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
