There is little to say about president Obama’s decision to rethink the long promised us$900m in food aid to starving North Koreans on the heels of the death of Kim Jong il.
The role of a Grinch does not suit the US president, but it seems that he gladly welcomes it at this Christmastide.
For a leader of the ‘free’ world, who at the drop of the hat, extols the virtues and benefits of democracy, tying food aid to political gains is hardly worthy of the man.
He exhibits more the ‘bah, humbug’ posturing of Ebernezer Scrooge in Dicken’s ‘Christmas Carol’.
GuamDiary does not expect a last minute reversal of Grinch Obama’s decision to withhold much needed food aid. It won’t worry one whit his conscience as he luxuriates in his Christmas holidays on the beaches of Hawaii.
He is in league with the purveyors of want and ignorance at this time of giving. And you can bet it won’t disturb his good Christian conscience!
