(Sorry, bit of a Jon Stewart pun, there).

So, no appearance at the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Juche Korea. With no heir to the throne, so to speak, is a power vacuum imminent or is the (external reporting of the) demise of the Great Teacher of Journalists premature?

I have just been watching a report on TV that indicates that he had suffered a stroke sometime in August and is now confined to a wheelchair.

He was not at the 'We love our Great Leader Day' (or what ever it is called) parade and that is the reason why.

As there is no little 'great, great, great leader' waiting in the wings, it will be very interesting to see what will happen now.

Who is running North Korea now or will in the future? It's not like there is going to be a vote by the people.

Dear Kim,

I have been studying my family tree and it seems we are closely related.
As I already have some experience, and indeed over here I am often referred to by the same title, then clearly I would be delighted to restore family ties again as I understand the position is hereditary and thus I would be qualified twice over to succeed from you.

Please feel free to email me at [email protected]

Yours,

Gordon

Don't know whether he's dead or just ill but he and his country make me sick!

C'mon Siseman that's a bit harsh. After all Great Leader only has himself to sing to:

I'm So Ronery
So ronery
So ronery and sadry arone

There's no one
Just me onry
Sitting on my rittle throne
I work rearry hard and make up great prans
But nobody ristens, no one understands
Seems like no one takes me serirousry

And so I'm ronery
A rittle ronery
Poor rittle me

There's nobody
I can rerate to
Feel rike a bird in a cage
It's kinda sihry
But not rearry
Because it's fihring my body with rage

I'm the smartest most crever most physicarry fit
But nobody else seems to rearize it
When I change the world maybe they'll notice me
But until then I'rr just be ronery
Rittle ronery, poor rittle me

I'm so ronery

Mainly because the rest of his country has starved to death.

We could lend them Kevin Rudd (please!!!). At a guess, within three months they'll promise to disarm, become good little capitalists - in fact anything - if he promises to stop droning on in that Godawful voice about all the things he'll do to... (sorry) for them.

When I lived in Asia I always used to check out News From KOREAN CENTRAL NEWS AGENCY of DPRK (http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm) for a realistic, unbiased version of the news from North Korea.....

I always remember one despatch which had the Dear Leader visiting an army regiment where, "...to cries of hurrah! he presented the commander with a gift of a machine gun." :}

Can they not stuff him & wheel him out now & again...have someone hiding below the balcony to move his arm to give the impression he's waving?

Russians did it in the 80s with their Presidents before Gorbachev came to power...:rolleyes:

"...to cries of hurrah! he presented the commander with a gift of a machine gun." ...as you do (in North Korea, at least:)).



Dangerously drifting into serious mode for one moment, I think we could be in for 'interesting times' if KJI goes to join his dad in the Great Socialist Co-Prosperity Paradise. If he does so before November, (as I suspect the GOP are praying for), his death might even have an effect on the US elections, particularly if there's even a hint of anarchy emanating from the DPRK after his corpse slips onto the marble shelf alongside dad's.

...and if there's not, the Republicans will probably talk some up.

'Uncertain times' if he does die would be an understatement, and I suspect South Korea is making plans as I type for dealing with a mass invasion from the North. Not of divisions of North Korean armour, but starving civilians flooding south as refugees.

I should add before someone picks up on it that this actually happened on Moray Firth Radio here in Scotland when the jock played a request for Jimmy who 'is a hundred and eleven today', only to come back at t'end of the tune to say 'I'm sorry he's ILL'...

Beatriz, Would make sense, he failed to show up at the Massed Games too.

I wonder how long he has been running the country as it had been opening up for quite some time now. There are many join business ventures between North and South with the Sounth in particular making use of the cheap labour available in the north. Tourism to North Korea has been increasing at a rapid rate of knots too.

Personal thoughts are that it is a strange and wierd state but I don't think it is the country that the powers that be would have us believe.

I've also heard that North Korea has 'resumed nuclear activities' allegedly after America failed to remove sanctions (as promised).

G-CPTN - NK has stopped disabling the Yongbyon nuclear complex bacause they're not happy with the nuclear verification rules. IE - They don't want people to check on what they're doing.

The generally accepted heir apparent in the DPRK is Kim Jong-Nam, Kim Jong-Il's eldest son.

He apparently has a fake Chinese passport and travels overseas a fair bit.

I'm sure the Cognac suppliers of the dead FLUF wouldnt've faked theirs.

Then again maybe the younger FLUF has inherited his old man's tastes?

I guess his just pi**ed off that his father's great Juche culture did not manage to make a nice hearse in time - now the "Dear Dead Leader" has to be moved around in - of all things - an American limo. Must be awful to stomach.

I wonder about the 'ticking bomb'.

Un is clueless and has zero experience. Worryingly big opportunity for the military to decide policy. They possess a nuclear arsenal. Go figure.

None of the estimated 1 to 3 million people who died of starvation there in the 90's, that's for sure. Those deaths 'subsidised' the nuclear build-up.

That was a bad career choice if it is true.

A team of trained ninja assassins snuck into North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's room overnight and assassinated the new leader while he was on a business trip in Beijing -- if rumors spreading across microblogging service Twitter and its Chinese counterpart Weibo are to be believed, that is.

Yup, have heard that as well, North Korea is not saying a thing, not even denying it.

One would think they would deny it happened at the least, unless it is true. :uhoh:

Course as North Korea has such a clampdown on any outside news getting into the country, maybe they've not heard of this yet. :p
