We know that the likes of Raul Castro, Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega and Robert Mugabe are grieving over the loss of their fellow tyrant Kim Jong-Il.
Well, North Korea’s state run news agency is claiming that former President Jimmy Carter expressed his condolences on the passing of Kim Jong-Il and wished his youngest son Kim Jong-Un “every success.”
Now one is normally disinclined to accept what is uttered out of Pyongyang at face value. Yet the Carter Center has neither confirmed nor denied the report.
It also must be remembered that Carter travelled to Pyongyang this past April, he acted as if he was a mouthpiece for Kim Jong-Il saying that Kim was ready to talk negotiate directly with U.S. and South Korea and also called for the end of sanctions against North Korea. Carter has also excused North Korea’s violations of UN Security Council Resolutions is only to “remind the world that they deserve respect in negotiations that will shape their future.”
So I don’t think it’s inconceivable that Carter would send Kim Jong-Un his sympathies and wish him every success even if the people of North Korea have no say in the matter.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
