I know, I know, I know… I’m supposed to tremble with fear.
North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un released a bunch of snapshots of himself posing with what are supposed to be mini nuclear warheads that can be mounted on ballistic missiles.
I know I’m supposed to tremble with fear, but come on.
Look at this:
He looks like a chubby man child wearing his dad’s coat and a beaver on his head playing around at a science museum exhibit.
Just days ago, North Korea once again threatened South Korea and the U.S. with nuclear war. I’m not sure anyone even bothered looking up from their iPhones this time.
We live in an age of the perpetual war on terror, but a more appropriate name would be the “War of Terror” because the biggest weapon used in it is fear. It’s all psychological first. They need people to be afraid because a large part of this war takes place in our heads before it takes place anywhere else.
Sadly, though, people are growing numb to it after all these years.
At this point, pictures like this one just look downright silly.
They look like they should be part of a caption-of-the-week contest and not real life.
That didn’t stop this story from being plastered all over the mainstream U.S. media, though.
