Cash-strapped North Korea has also its economic woes: it is demanding $65 trillion in compensation for six decades of hostility. That is over $12 trillion a decade and over $1 trillion a year. They could have told us and we would have shown all our hostility in a more efficient period like a year.
The bill came due on the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War. This makes sense when you realize that the 60th anniversary is your “diamond” anniversary — in this case, a lot of diamonds.
While the U.S. is rejecting the demand, I think that the Administration is a bit premature. I think we should pay in full . . . in Gulf oil and AIG stock.
