My Way News: "'Cheney is hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast, as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood,' "

Sounds like jealousy to me. Kim would be a greater tyrant and monster than he imagines Cheney to be if only he had the means.
I love reading expat blogs. They capture the idiosyncrasies of living in Faraway and are often good for a laugh. Over to you Keefieboy:

Adventures in Dubai: "One strange (and useful) by-product of the climate is that in summer everybody uses their hot taps to get cold water out of, and the cold taps deliver very hot water. All you do is switch off your water heaters. Your hot water tank is inside your air-conditioned dwelling where it cools down and stays cold, while your uninsulated cold water tank lives outside on the roof, where you do not need any special equipment to heat up the contents - the blazing sun does it all for you.

At the beginning of every summer you can guarantee that a Dubai newbie (maybe that's a dewbie), will write to the Gulf News imploring the concerned authorities to do something about this state of affairs. Nobody has told them that they should just forget about using their water heaters, and enjoy the benefits of free hot water. "
