A June 2 AP article reports that North Korea called Vice President Dick Cheney a “bloodthirsty beast” and lambasted him for calling the Democratic People’s Rebublic (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Il “irresponsible.” Said an unnamed North Korean Foreign Ministry source, “What Cheney uttered at a time when the issue of the six-party talks is high on the agenda is little short of telling [North Korea] not to come out for the talks.” In a May 29 interview on CNN, Cheney called the reclusive buffont-haired Jong Il “one of the world’s most irresponsible leaders” who runs a police state and leaves his people in poverty and malnutrition. The DPRK responded that Cheney was “hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood.”(AP, June 2)
