    Times magazine recently published an article saying that Ri Sol Ju reminds them of Marie Antoinette, during the French revolution.
    Ri Sol Ju, wife of Kim Jong-un, was spotted sporting a luxury Christian Dior purse in public. The bag, identified as a Lady Dior Clutch retails for about $1600, which is roughly the equivalent of an average North Korean annual salary.
    The extravagance of Ri Sol Ju is not different from the extravagance of Marie Antoinette who was hanged for wasting away state coffers while the French people were starving to death.
    Kim Jong-un and Ri Sol Ju... Man and wife are one in body and soul.
    So, too, is their extravagance.
    The luxurious lifestyle of North Korea's leaders contradicts North Korea's food aid requests for its starving people.
    Before requesting outside aid, they must first fix the fundamental problem - money wasted from extravagant lifestyle of its leaders. The North Korean leaders are driving its people to starvation.
    No matter how hard Kim Jong-un tries to gain the public sentiment, if Kim Jong-un does not fix the fundamental problem, he is bound to fail.

    If we have an American Marie Antoinette, then certainly the North Koreans can have one too.
