Earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed North Korea on Good Morning America, saying, "What we've seen is this constant demand for attention... And maybe it's the mother in me or the experience that I've had with small children and unruly teenagers and people who are demanding attention -- don't give it to them, they don't deserve it, they are acting out." Well, North Korea didn't like that too much—and made a new bid for attention by slamming the Secretary of State calling her vulgar and unintelligent and saying she looks either like a schoolgirl or retiree. Wow, it's almost like primary season 2008 again!
The North Korean Foreign Ministry issued a statement to criticize Clinton's remarks, "She has made a spate of vulgar remarks unbecoming for her position everywhere she went since she was sworn in...[The remarks suggest] she is by no means intelligent... We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady as she likes to utter such rhetoric, unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community. Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping... It is our view that she can make even a little contribution to the implementation of the U.S. administration's foreign policy as secretary of State only when she has understanding of the world, to begin with."
Clinton has "rallied international isolationisn of North Korea" at the ASEAN Summit in Thailand. She said, "There is no place to go for North Korea. They have no friends left."
