Bill Clinton and Kim Jong Il
Q: What's wrong with this picture? A: It gives the appearance that North Korea and the U.S. are equals!
Former U.S. president Bill Clinton (seated L) and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-il (seated R) pose for a picture in Pyongyang in this photo released by North Korean official news agency KCNA August 4, 2009. Clinton made a surprise visit to North Korea on Tuesday to try to win the release of two jailed American journalists, and met the country's reclusive leader Kim.
Rewarding North Korea's bad behavior with such a high profile visit only invites more bad behavior!
