Kim Jong-Un Follows Raul's Lead

Monday, May 9, 2016
Over the weekend, North Korea's dictator, Kim Jong-Un, followed General Raul Castro's lead.

He held a Worker's Party Congress, where announced a new five-year economic plan, but no political reforms.

Kim also took Raul's fashion advice and wore a business suit.

He also got some Cuban-style media spin.

As CNN reported, "In recent years, there have been signs of a modest economic recovery here in Pyongyang, the capital. There is more traffic, restaurants, and consumer items such as smartphones, electronics, and fashionable clothing."

Sound like Havana -- or better!

Clearly, the secret is out among the world's worst dictators that if you wear a business suit and babble about the economy, Obama will awash you in political legitimacy and sanctions relief.
