Emperor imposes sanctions on North Korea and its leaders. These have gotta' hurt!

Today the Obama administration imposed a wave of sanctions against members of the North Korean government.   The emperor's press secretary implied that the sanctions were a retaliation for the computer hack against Sony Pictures.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest issued this statement: “We take seriously North Korea’s attack that aimed to create destructive financial effects on a U.S. company and to threaten artists and other individuals with the goal of restricting their right to free expression.”

Through friends in the state department we've now obtained a list of the sanctions.  They look pretty serious.  Here's the list:
Effective immediately the following items may not be sold or otherwise conveyed to North Korea or its leaders by any U.S. company or subsidiary thereof:
  1.  Personal jet aircraft;
  2.  Nuclear weapons;
  3.  Aircraft carriers;
  4.  Submarines;
  5.  Televisions larger than 42 inches (diagonal measure);
  6.  iPhones;
It looks as if the emperor has found a way to really punish the ghastly ruler of North Korea.
