Kim Jong Il must have W's military records

How else to explain this freakish item posted byAtrios

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A senior U.S. official said on Monday that North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is a "rational" leader who would be able to transform his impoverished Stalinist state once he resolves the nuclear standoff with the international community.

"Many accusations that he (Kim Jong-il) is some sort of crazy person are not correct," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State James Kelly said in an exclusive interview with The Korea Times at his office in the State Department. He said Kim's leadership is one that is unique and rational.

On the other hand, maybe it's not news that W must respect Kim, much as he does Putin. "I took the measure of his craziness..." or some such tripe.

This is worth following through all the way to the source. There's another odd remark in this article by the same James Kelly:

Asked whether the North's increased nuclear arsenal will change U.S. policy toward the North, he said, "Six or 12 nuclear bombs, nuclear bombs in the abstract are very unusable."
