North Korea’s Kim Jong Il has starved his own people in various ways for a long time (while obviously eating very well himself). So, in order to do something about it, Jimmy Carter went to North Korea and later had some stern words… for the US and South Korea. Carter accused both the US and one of its allies of human rights violations. Yeah, that sounds about right:

(RTTNews) – Ex-US President Jimmy Carter has flayed the US and South Korea for withholding food aid to North Korea which he said amounted to violation of human rights, reports said on Thursday.

Briefing reporters in South Korean capital, Seoul, after wrapping up his three-day visit to Communist North, Carter said Pyongyang badly needed food imports.

“One of the most important human rights is to have food to eat, and for South Korea and the US and others to deliberately withhold food aid to the North Korean people is really a human rights violation,” he said.

Leave it to Jimmy Carter to go to a place called “Communist North” and conclude the misery there is somebody else’s fault. Saddam Hussein had Baghdad Bob, so it’s only fair that Kim Jong Il has Pyongyang Jimmy. What’s even sadder is that Kim Jong Il refused to meet with Carter’s group, but that didn’t prevent Jimmy from shilling for the communist regime.

This is just embarrassing… even for Carter. Somewhere Billy is saying “and they called me the embarrassing one?”
