 Palin ‘looks forward to NK regime change’

By Philip Iglauer

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she “looks forward to regime change” in North Korea while calling on South Korea to help the North when its regime is finally ousted.

 “Being under the thumb of a dictator, the first victims of his regime are his own people,” said Palin during a keynote address at the 12th World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, Tuesday.

 Palin, who was the vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party in 2008, made the comment in a Q&A session with Ritz Kahn of Al Jazeera English immediately after her speech.

 The theme of this year’s forum is “The New Economic Crisis: Reforming Global Leadership & Asia’s Challenge.”

 Regarding Palin’s remark, the Seoul government showed a cautious response.

 Jo Byoung-jae, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said flatly “regime change is not a policy goal or the objective of this government.”

 He said he is not criticizing Palin or her statement, but just stating as clearly as possible what the North Korea policy of Seoul is, adding, “I think it is safe to say that it is also not the policy goal of the U.S. government either.”

 Palin’s statement drew attention as it came at a particularly precarious time for South and North Korean relations amid lingering tension on the Korean Peninsula.

 Kim Tae-hyo, Cheong Wa Dae’s deputy national security advisor, said Friday that North Korea could conduct a long-range missile or third nuclear test if ongoing preliminary talks with South Korea and the United States fail to restart the long-stalled six party talks.

So let me get this straight… Palin goes to South Korea as a guest to speak about global economy and ends up encouraging the people at this conference to overthrow the neighbouring countries’ government because she doesn’t happen to like dictatorships. This same ‘dictatorship’ has nuclear weapons poised at most western democracies and it’s taken many acts of diplomacy among several high-ranking world leaders to draw the North Korean leaders away from discharging those weapons and into constructive peace talks – which she in a span of about 20 minutes may have dangerously undermined… Did I leave anything out?

Is she freaking insane????
