Appeasement? You want to see appeasement?

How about Monkey Boy, our drunken sock puppet of a president down on his knees doing a Monica on Kim Jong-il?*

U.S. Gives 500,000 tonnes of food aid to N. Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Friday it would provide 500,000 metric tonnes in food aid to North Korea in a sign of improving cooperation despite their standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The aid will start next month and be provided over a 12-month period, the statement from the U.S. Agency for International Development said...

... Washington will supply 400,000 tonnes via the U.N. World Food Program, while U.S. nongovernmental organizations will distribute 100,000 tonnes, the statement said...

... The aid comes as Washington is putting more pressure on North Korea to come up with a declaration of its nuclear activities, part of a broader multilateral deal aimed at getting Pyongyang to abandon all of its nuclear programs in exchange for economic and diplomatic incentives.

A senior U.S. official said the aid was not related in any way to the nuclear issue. U.S. policy is not to use food as a weapon or reward.


No, of course it's not appeasement --- but while they're at it, why not give him the Sudetenland, too?


*I've been corrected in this speculation. I was told by a friend that 43 is probably more proctologically inclined.
