US Kills North Korean iPod Sales To Spite Kim Jong Il

In an effort to sanction North Korea via luxury items, the US is engaging in the first ever effort to "personally aggravate a foreign president" by targeting items he personally enjoys. The list includes, besides the iPod:

cognac, Rolex watches, cigarettes, artwork, expensive cars, Harley Davidson motorcycles or even personal watercraft, such as Jet Skis. The new ban would extend even to music and sports equipment.

Besides those, the leader enjoys:

Mercedes, BMW and Cadillac cars; Japanese and Harley Davidson motorcycles; Hennessy XO cognac from France and Johnny Walker Scotch whisky; Sony cameras and Japanese air conditioners.

Who doesn't?
