The Swiss Connection

“”Commander Kim” speaks Swiss German” – swissinfo.ch reports – “Not only will the next leader of North Korea reportedly is a drink-loving basketball fan but the youngest son of Kim Jong-il is also an alumnus of a Swiss private school.”

Why, of course he is. After all, he’s from a rich family, a dynasty.

A mysterious figure, Kim Jong-un is the second son of former dancer Ko Yong Hi, a woman who died of cancer in 2004.

A Swiss connection runs through the family. Jong-un studied at the International School of Berne in the 1990s, but left in 1998 at the age of 15 before taking his baccalaureate exam, the equivalent to a British A-level.

The Swiss weekly news magazine L’Hebdo reported that he went by the pseudonym Pak Chol and learned to speak English, German and French – as well as Swiss German.

    hoo boy I hope the drink he likes is tea and not keystone light. Mark my word, I bet North Korea is the raddest place on the globe.

    Let’s not forget that NK has some pretty powerful back-up: China, for one, and even Russia, possible. Maybe, just maybe we’ll see magic hour pretty soon, and ye olde Dialectic will re-arrange itself . Alas the capitalist Top-men (USA, Japan, EU, SK etc) of Team Freiheit may be in for an upset from the non-Capitalist bottoms of Team Natur (NK, China, Russ). Holy Fallout shelter time, batman (and give thanks to all the Men of Gott everywhere–Kotzkos, Inc!– doing their best to keep the Big Guy from blowing Himself up again. No, God, don’t do it!).

    Btw, Abby enjoyed your bitch-slap of that phony “liberal” broad Snitch PhD on Kotzko (she’s sort of their Den mama or something, and close to another phony Kotzko reg- POS, Wolfson). Sotomayor’s about as radical as like Hillary Clinton–actually probably not quite that. Cockburn wrote a decent essay pointing out her pro-corporate decisions.

    The authentic subversive will engage in misogyny when necessary: like when conservative hags control the political machine (including blogville, for most part). Bolshevikis and Mahknovites agreed on that, Im pretty sure.
