Australian Foreign Minister, Kevin Rudd

"I'm confident that President Lee Myung-bak will handle this appropriately. 
I'm less confident that the North Koreans are capable of handling these things competently."
-Kevin Rudd

Support for South Korea, and using tact to slap North Korea in the face. Awesome. :)

Hey Jack - this is an isolated instance of "Awesomeness" from our now Foreign Minister - former Prime Minister. Don't be fooled - as were the Australian swinging voters in 2007 - this man is a loose cannon. Policy on the run, "foot in mouth", autocratic, self centered - these are just a few of the conditions displayed by our "Kev". The sooner he's gone from the Australian political landscape the better - for all of us. Remember - this is the man who "instructed" Hillary Clinton that the US should use force on China to bring them to hell in the international community.
But yes - it is still a good line. I wonder however, did Hitler come out with a few as well - I'd say he must have.

Hi Dane,

Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it.

I agree, it's most likely an isolated instance from the now FM. I just really liked the quote.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!
