A COM­MON AIM

The Asian Age - - Edit -

THERE ARE a few un­canny sim­i­lar­i­ties be­tween the leader of Iran and North Ko­rea. Whereas the for­mer is a re­li­gious fa­natic, the lat­ter is an ide­o­log­i­cal tyrant. Both Tehran and Py­ongyang are in pos­ses­sion of a large stock­pile of nu­clear arse­nal that was built up with mu­tual ex­change of tech­nol­ogy. Both be­lieve in the path of vi­o­lence to achieve their ul­ti­mate goals. The theo­cratic lead­er­ship of Iran and the Com­mu­nist dic­ta­tor have one com­mon aim — to­tal de­struc­tion of Is­rael and the US.
