Lee Kuan Yew and Kim Jong il - compared


From: "AleXX"
Subject: Can the present North Korean leader claims that he is the best person to rule his country?

Or is it because he has taken over from his dictator father?
Is there any country in South East Asia where a PM claimed himself to be the
best person to rule a country and not because of his father who was once a
strong-man-dictator-like ruler? Is he coincidently the best person to rule?

I notice that you used past tense ...when talk about LKY,
Thaksin and Mahathir.
I agree that they WERE good for their country.

Was Kim's father GOOD for N Korea ?

According to patriotic Koreans, he was definitely
good for Korea. They are proud to be a truly
independent country...unlike S Korea which
is a neo-colony of the USA.
They supported him...willing to suffer extreme
economic hardship...refusing to rebel against
him....refusing to kowtow to US sanctions.

People get the leaders they deserve. The poor leaders
in S E Asia are elected by the people.

Quite rightly, in Asia, because of them, their citizens are smart
enough to know that they have to work hard and fend for themselves
because the Govt cannot be relied upon. In advanced countries, like
America and EU, Australia, the Govts can be relied upon to take care
of their citizens.
