Sticks, Stones and Nukes

Pyongyang 'Diplomacy'     (Public Domain)
Schoolyard politics never grow old, even though schoolboys themselves do.

In a display of bullfight diplomacy, Senator John McCain recently called dictator Kim Jong Un a “crazy fat kid.”  McCain's statement is being considered “tantamount to declaration of war” by the North Korean regime.

Although the North Koreans do not seem well- versed in “sticks and stones” philosophy, Albert Einstein was.  He famously predicted that World War IV (that’s FOUR) “will be fought with sticks and stones.”

The Korean Central News Agency published this response to McCain’s taunt: They [Senators McCain and Ted Cruz were specifically named] will have to bitterly experience the disastrous consequences to be entailed by their reckless tongue-lashing and then any regret for it will come too late.

To which McCain replied:  What, did they want me to call him a crazy skinny kid?  Funny for now?  Maybe.  But let’s see if anyone's left laughing.
