Large amounts of methamphetamine are exported from North Korea each year via China. It’s weird. The trade has fueled meth addiction in China and neighboring countries, and most recently led to a group of international-smugglers being caught by Bankok police and extradited to their respective countries. While the story is fascinating enough in itself, the North Korean state media’s response really steals the show.
The KOREA NEWS SERVICES (KNS) puts the ‘PR’ in DPRK, and they have a way with words. Their latest press release runs as follows:
In recent days the Western reptile media are spreading sheer sophism that the DPRK is a major hotbed of international drug-related crimes. Its origin is none other than the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime. […]
Drug manufacture and smuggling are strictly banned in the DPRK, and such practices are never tolerated under its social system. […]
It is a hard fact that drug manufacture and smuggling are rampant in those countries where the U.S. stretches out its tentacles of aggression.
The U.S. and its followers, ringleaders of the international drug-related crimes, would be well advised to mind their own business.
Western. Reptile. Media.
