"POT, MAY I INTRODUCE YOU TO KETTLE?" The DPRK weighs in on the Roh Moo-hyun impeachment with this idictment:
Korea Central News Agency ("N KOREAN NEWS AGENCY SLAMS PARLIAMENTARY COUP IN SOUTH KOREA," Pyongyang, 03/17/04) reported that the railroading of "the motion on impeachment against the president" through the "National Assembly" (NA) of the ROK on March 12 is censured by the fellow countrymen and the international community for its illegality and impudence. Conservative forces of the ROK including the Grand National Party (GNP) perpetrated such unprecedented political gangsterism as railroading the "motion" through the NA in just 20 minutes, reminding one of a military operation carried out against the people's will.
Many might regard "a military operation carried out against the people's will" as a pretty apt description of the Kim Jong Il regime.

UPDATE: In a rare breach of the usual "Koreans are one nation" rhetoric the ROK lashes back:
JoongAng Ilbo ("SEOUL TELLS NORTH OFF OVER IMPEACHMENT," 03/17/04) reported that the ROK government directed a rare complaint yesterday at the DPRK, calling the DPRK's reaction to the impeachment of President Roh Moo-hyun an "intervention in the domestic affairs of another country."
