Bad North Korea, No More iPods for You!

In the latest US move to show it's displeasure with North Korea's missile and nuke programs, the Bush administration wants to ban the import of iPods, plasma screen TVs and Segway scooters to the country that doesn't have enough money to buy food.

This satelitte photo shows the lack of lights in North Korea -- suggesting that expensive electronics won't exactly be missed.

Other items on the list the Associated Press obtained:
  • Conac
  • Rolex watches
  • Artwork
  • Luxury cars
  • Harley Davidson motorcycles
  • Jet Skis
The idea is that the ban on shipping luxury items into North Korea would hurt leader Kim Jong Il's extravagant lifestyle because, lord knows, a rogue nation's despot hellbent on exporting missiles and building a atom bomb would never resort to smuggling his goodies in. (AP)

Nice spin on the story... you don't even mention that it is targeted at that leader. I guess I'm supposed to swallow your Kool-Aid and think that the President is trying to punish the people of North Korea. The satellite photo was a nice touch. The North Korean people don't even know what Mr. Kim is into anyway. Why not offer some actual proposals on what you think should be done?
