A Quick Tale of Two Hypocrisies

Once again president Trump has decided to speak before thinking. At the 72nd UN assembly today, he decided to threaten the DPRK who oppose US power in their countries.

“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

The first irony here is palpable. It is the US that has threatened the DPRK constantly throughout several decades. The DPRK has only asked to maintain its right to self-determination.

The second irony is as follows:

“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.”

This criticism is from the country that coined the phrase, “give me liberty or give me death!”
