They would have saved themselves and the world a lot of trouble if they had limited the entire international Olympic Torch relay to China’s number one ally, North Korea. It will arrive there in a few days, to an unreservedly fanatical welcome, the kind that the torch’s American public relations firm of Ketchum must be creaming their jeans over.
As the spirit of the Torch is closer kindred of the spirit of North Korea than of any other nation, we urge the US State Department to revoke the passports of all US citizens who work for Ketchum in Beijing, to enable them more easily to immigrate to North Korea where their kind of work is most welcome.
Here’s a North Korean movie clip exemplary of the same “spirit” which has animated the PRC’s “sacred” torch relay throughout the world. At last, it’s soon to arrive in a country where it is perfectly welcome, where its visit will be 100 percent untainted by any public relations problems. Ketchum must be thanking God for this anticipated day of relief – or thanking God’s replacement, Kim Jong Il.
