    The NYT is in total meltdown. Because of this administration, the US may become isolated, while trying to do just that to North Korea. Cute, huh?

    Wow, it's not even an editorial, but categorized as news story.

    Why do authors like Norimitsu Onishi feel compelled to write such things like:


    Famous for hermetic borders?

    How about famous for state sanctioned famine, massive political repression, murderous concentration camps, massive militancy (40% of GDP), nuclear weapon technology distribution to other terrorist states. Of all things, these famous hermetic borders are more infamous for keeping their own people from escaping out of the country, not keeping others out. In that case, calling the country 'hermit-like' isn't exactly a fair description. Actually it's a stupid one.
