In an op-ed in the official newspaper of North Korea, writer Jin Chol reacts to a Voice of America broadcast that, as he puts it:Recently reported of the top 10 shocking incidents of 2011. One of them is a crime of a woman who killed her two-year old daughter and concealed it for a month, only making feast. (Emphasis added)
Jin goes on to note that the mother escaped conviction and that “Such a decision can be given only in the United States, the kingdom of crimes.” The op-ed, headlined “Even the Statue of Liberty Would Lament,” concludes with an even-handed assessment of America’s standing in the world today (“The United States is a “dirt society” that should be thrown into the dustbin of history.”)
