German Morality

The strained relations between Germany and the United States took a turn for the worse yesterday after a senior Berlin diplomat was reported to have told Foreign Ministry colleagues that America was turning into a “police state”. [London Times, 5/6/03]

Russian Morality
Last month, the Russians were opposed to war on the grounds that there was no proof Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. This month, the Russians are opposed to lifting sanctions on the grounds that there’s no proof Iraq doesn’t have weapons of mass destruction. [Mark Steyn, Chicago Sun-Times, 5/4/03]
Belgian Morality
Will the Belgian government approve the complaint against Tommy Franks for ”genocide”? The petition accuses the general of ”inaction in the face of hospital pillaging,” which apparently meets the Belgian definition of genocide, unlike the deaths of more than 3 million people, which is the lowball figure for those who’ve died in the current civil war in the Congo….

North Korean Morality
This from an interview with someone the news agency calls a “propagandist for the Stalinist state”:

Kim Myong Chol, who styles himself executive director of the Centre for Korea-American Peace, told Australia’s Channel Nine network Sunday: “It’s quite obvious North Korea may have minimum 100 nuclear warheads, maximum 300. “They all lock onto American cities.” … He claimed the nuclear technology used to produce the missiles had been tested in Pakistan and the weapons had been made before Pyongyang’s non-proliferation agreement…. They did not therefore breach international agreements, he maintained….”If the US attacks North Korea, North Korea will definitely use those nuclear weapons against the US mainland,” he replied….”North Korea will use those nuclear weapons against the US mainland if America imposes additional economic sanctions on North Korea.” [Agence France-Presse, 5/4/03]
