N Korea seeks $75 trillion in compensation
Posted 8 hours 39 minutes ago

Cash-strapped North Korea has demanded the United States pay almost $US65 trillion ($75 trillion) in compensation for six decades of hostility.

The official North Korean news agency, KCNA, says the cost of the damage done by the US since the peninsula was divided in 1945 is estimated at $US64.96 trillion.

The compensation call comes on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the start of the 1950-1953 Korean War.

KCNA said the figure includes $US26.1 trillion arising from US "atrocities" which left more than 5 million North Koreans dead, wounded, kidnapped or missing.

The agency also claims 60 years of US sanctions have caused a loss of $US13.7 trillion by 2005, while property losses were estimated at $US16.7 trillion.

The agency said North Koreans have "the justifiable right" to receive the compensation for their blood.

It said the committee's calculation did not include the damage North Korea had suffered from sanctions after its first nuclear test in 2006.

For some reason I picture Korea hiring some scrubby attorney in a dirty, wrinkled suit, and he's in the courtroom, sweating profusely, stumbling through his case, shuffling through his papers as everyone awkwardly waits for him knowing full well he has nothing of value to present. Meanwhile Kim Jong Il sits next to him smiling like, "yeah, I'm getting paid."

The ACLU will probably take the case and some smarmy high end lib ambulance chasing cur lawyer would love the case so he gets more press. Then he can take on the Mexican Government to represent them in a lawsuit.

That's funny. And how much money do they owe the world for accepting money to feed an impoverished nation, only to lather themselves and their military with riches while the rest of the country starves. Not to mention numerous sanctions they've ignored. Not to mention the countless crimes against humanity.
