North Korea's Leader, Kim-Jong-Un, visits the Wolnae Islet Defence Detachment in
the western sector of the front line, which is near Baengnyeong Island of South Korea,
CNN says: "In keeping with the dynasty’s tradition of erratic behavior, North Korean
leader Kim Jong Un has threatened to bombard a South Korean island with 5,000 residents,
further raising alarms in Seoul and the U.S., which is beefing up its own missile defenses 

against possible attack from Pyongyang."

  1. In addition to threatening to start a war with his nuclear weapons, Kim Jong-un has also made sexist comments to insult the woman, Park Geun-hye, who is the president of South Korea.

    Feminists, by and large, have remained quiet. North Korea is an ally of Iran, and saying something critical of a member of the Marxist-Islamic Alliance might indirectly support Israel. Feminists, like most political groups, give priority to anti-Zionism over their own cause.
