    Otto Warmbier, the 22-year-old student of University of Virginia, held for 17 months in prison with hard labour by the Kim regime for allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster, had been in a coma since returning home from North Korea. He died less than a week after his release.

    Prior to that, Donald Trump bragged before a crowd in Miami on Friday that he had brought American Otto Warmbier home. Now in response to Warmbier's death, Trump decried North Korea as a “brutal regime”.

    Besides executing his own uncle, the North Korean dictator had committed such crimes as killing his half brother Kim Jong-nam with a chemical weapon. To force Malaysia to accede to his demands for the return of Kim Jong-nam's body and safe passage for the three North Korean criminals hiding in the embassy, the North Korean tyrant held three Malaysian diplomats and six family members - including four children - hostage in Pyongyang.

    If Warmbier's captivity and death occurred before the Second World War, a thousand ships could have been launched in an American version of the Trojan War and North Korea would be bombed to ashes. Comparing such Middle East despots as Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi with the North Korean tyrant is just like comparing midgets with a giant monster. Those Middle East midgets had mostly perished from the earth but the North Korean devil incarnate is still at large doing all sorts of evils in this world. America's impotence against the North Korean devil incarnate shows that it is on a steady decline and could never stand up again. “Make America Great Again” is just an empty slogan.

    What then would you suggest as a course of action?
