How much better is the US opinion of N. Korean leaders than their opinions of ours?

He is a passage from an online site about Kim Il-Sung, among others:

killer file:
Kim Il Sung
AKA 'Great Leader', AKA 'Eternal Leader', AKA 'Suryong' (Supreme Leader).
Country: North Korea.

Kill tally: About three million killed in the Korean War. Between 600,000 and one million North Koreans needlessly starved to death due to the economic legacy of Kim's regime. (Some reports claim that as many as three million starve.)


Obviously this is very different from the anti-American propaganda spurted forth from Pyongyang, but clearly many American people regard that government in roughly the same light.
