The Dear Coach

The North Korean dictator "gives regular tactical advice during matches using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye," which "were invented by Kim Jong-il himself" according to the country's coach — Kim Jong-il Blamed for N.Korea's Foolish World Cup Tactics.

"The invisible-mobile-phone part may be silly, but it's probably true that Kim Jong-il's orders are delivered to the coach," said a South Korean official. The result — Portugal 7-0 North Korea.

However, according to the report, "It appears that North Korea had high hopes of the game, which it broadcast live for the first time in its history." Said Kim Yong-hyun, a professor at Dongguk University, "The North Korean leadership seems to have wanted to consolidate its hold and look for ways to turn the tables through a victory in the World Cup as it is struggling both economically and diplomatically."

Dear Coach is about as skilled at coaching soccer as he is at economics.

What an ass-clown.

Indeed. B.Z. Myers, an American expert on North Korean propaganda, has argued that KJI is deliberately keeping his people poor, as the austerity they are suffering serves to unite them against the American imperialist threat. He argues that NK is a racialist tyranny closer to Nazi Germany in ideology than, say, Castro's Cuba.
