His WMD: Burning Dokomo


Speaking of things burning at the United Nations, there will be some burning dokomos after the foreign minister from South Korea Ban Ki-moon succeeds Kofi as the next Secretary General.

While described as “soft-spoken” (what else is new, it’s the UN, right? Hugo, come back!!), my primary concern is no longer his lack of acting experience. How come nobody in the global press has mentioned the fact that it may not be completely objective to elect a Secretary General from a country that may be on the brink of nuclear war!

Just a thought. But what do I know? Hopefully this means they’ll soon be instituting Spicy Soon-do-bu Sundays in the UN cafeteria.  (If you don’t know what burning dokomo means, it’s like a sort of credit payment plan when eating Korean food: you always pay twice.  Once after the meal, and once again the next day…)
