    SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea called Vice President Dick Cheney a "bloodthirsty beast" on Thursday, in response to Cheney saying the North's leader Kim Jong-il was irresponsible and ran a police state.

    "Cheney is hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast, as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood," a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency.

    Washington and North Korea have been in the midst of a war of words in recent weeks, with President Bush calling the North's Kim a tyrant. Pyongyang has shot back calling Bush a half-baked man and a philistine.

    Cheney said in a TV interview with CNN aired on Monday that Kim was "one of the world's more irresponsible leaders."

    "He runs a police state. He's got one of the most heavily militarised societies in the world," Cheney said. "He doesn't take care of his people at all. And he obviously wants to throw his weight around and become a nuclear power."

    The North Korean spokesman said Cheney's comments showed that the United States wanted to scuttle six-party talks aimed at ending Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programs in exchange for security guarantees and economic assistance.

    Washington has been working to revive the talks that have been stalled for about a year. U.S. and North Korean officials had a rare, face-to-face meeting last month at the United Nations that some analysts said was a positive sign pointing to the resumption of talks.

    You know what is funny (well, you know what I mean)...

    Think about it... the average north Korean lives like the world lived 100 years, or even more, ago. Or at least information wise. That is why in societies such a north Korea, people like Kim Jong Il, etc. become "gods" to the people. The people, overall, really are ignorant of the way the world is. You always hear this when you read about or hear the stories of north Korean that have defected. They have NO idea what really is going on in the world outside their little area. Anyway, if the average Korean hears this kind of stuff about Cheney, they probably imagine him being something like Atilla or Genghis Kahn. Kinda interesting when you think about it. The north Korean people probably really do have this image of a some guy running around the world directing mass murders and carnage.
