Calling in a Pinch Hitler
Tuesday, May 10, 2005
(SNN P'yŏngyang) North Korea intensified its nuclear confrontation with the United States today, calling President George W. Bush “Hitler Junior”. With this new taunt, the United States has finally decided to get tough with North Korea and ask China to deal with them.

"It is a wise decision for our republic not to expect any settlement of the nuclear issue or any improvement in its relations with the United States during Bush's term of office," said a commentary in North Korea’s state run newspaper. "Bush is the world's worst fascist dictator, a first-class warmaniac and Hitler, Junior, who is jerking his hands stained with blood of innocent people."
With this blatant name calling, North Korea's rhetoric has simply gone too far. While many may agree with the titles of fascist and war maniac, it is not considered polite to call people “Hitler”.

Faced with extended stalemate, the Bush administration has asked China to redouble its efforts to lure North Korea back to the negotiation table. China should use all the tools available to it to reopen negotiations, said a State Department official, without elaboration.
North Korea has tested technology that may enable missiles with nuclear warheads to reach as far as California. The Bush Administration has grown increasingly worried at the possibility that the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library may be in jeopardy.
