Lyndon B. Johnson

Slavery exists. It is black in the South, and white in the North.
Capitalism has worked very well. Anyone who wants to move to North Korea is welcome.
North Korea has taught a great lesson to all the countries in the world, especially the rogue countries of dictatorships or whatever: if you don't want to be invaded by America, get some nuclear weapons.
North Americans don't understand... that our country is not just Cuba; our country is also humanity.

One morning, just like 9/11, there's going to be a disaster. I have yet to see the United Nations do anything effective with either Iran or North Korea.

If Iran and North Korea, by some horrible, devilish, nightmarish scenario, got together and went to war at the same time, one against Saudi Arabia and one against South Korea, I don't know what we would do about that. I don't know that we could stop them short of using nuclear weapons.
