North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un and the North Korean government released a statement on Thursday that inviting President Obama and members of the U.S. Congress to Pyongyang, North Korea — right after calling them all “idiots.”
“[President Obama, the U.S. Congress, and Cabinet] can come and visit our country immediately,” said the statement reported by MarketWatch. “Only then will they get an accurate picture of what a society that truly protects human rights looks like.”
As opposed to conventional diplomatic means, the invitation was extended to the United States in a rant by a spokesperson for North Korea’s National Defense Commission responding to a recently released report that the Pyongyang Biotechnical Institute — which was recently visited by Kim Jong-Un — may be producing more than just insect repellant.
Melissa Hanham, a Johns Hopkins University blogger who specializes in North Korean studies, speculated that the pesticide factory may have the capability to produce biological weapons such as Anthrax, and the dictator’s visit may indicate a threat to the U.S. and South Korea.
“The modern equipment seen in the images reveal that North Korea is not only maintaining a biological weapons capability,” Hanham wrote. “But also has an active large-scale sanctions busting effort to illicitly procure the equipment for the Pyongyang Biotechnical Institute.”
Hanham added, “Kim Jong-Un’s visit to the plant may have been intended as a veiled threat to South Korea and the U.S.”
Upon hearing about this accusation, the North Korean government was so enraged that they were driven to actually invite the U.S. government, for the first time, to their notoriously isolated country.
But not before calling them “idiots.”
