Too bad. I'm surprised they even announced it. He can't die, according to propaganda... might be speculation, but I don't know... shoulda had an unknown son to put forward and announce "Kim Jong Il found the fountain of youth" or something.

Last 18 months or so Kim Jong Il started putting his youngest kid into posts usually reserved for the party leader. Kim Jun Un...at least I think that's his name. But you are correct. North Korea is led eternally by Kim Jung Il's father.

All kidding aside, it's amazing the impact the North Koreans have had on world events. Just that railroad link to Russia has kept them from being isolated. And that railroad link to North Korea has kept Russia from being totally isolated to an ice-free port to the Pacific, although the Kims make them pay for it.

New dude is in the same spot his dad and grandad was. He's stuck between Japan, China, Russia, and the US. What would you do in his spot? Dude has missiles and is nuclear armed. He has his own playground, what's his incentive to relinquish that? Dude has client states willing to pay millions for the missile and nuclear technology he has. China is right on his border, but China can't control him, because his missiles can hit Beijing easily.

If I were in his spot I'd spend my first 5 years establishing myself as the most feared sob in the country, surround myself with trustworthy military leaders, scare the **** out of em like Saddam, to try to prevent a military coup, then once I had the stranglehold I'd slowly constantly do my damnedest to open diplomatic relations with the US, South Korea, and Japan. Change the propaganda machine on the people to more of a Korean nationalism theme rather than a North Korean Nationalism. And slowly dissolve the currently fierce Anti-American propaganda. And slowly try to give the people freedom. The endgame would be to dissolve North Korea and unify the Korean Penninsula without firing a shot. Would it work? Doubt it, but that's what I'd try to do if i were in his spot.

Dude already has the stranglehold on his country, now he just plays games with the Big Powers because he can. You might have done things differently, but he can play games because he can. His daddy exported missile and nuclear technology despite even China. In your face kind of thing. Where it will end up I don't know. We've tried to intercept his daddy's shipments, but it's tough to keep it up.

I don't think he does right now. If the military sees him as weak, they'll off his ass so fast it'll make your head spin. I'm talking about if you could transform me and put me in his body right now that's what I'd try to do. Unify the peninsula under South Korean rule, and dissolve the north.

The new Kim I believe made the first trip to Beijing of any Kim, and the only reason he did that was because he had missiles that can hit Beijing. Prior to this Kim, the only time a Kim left NKorea was to visit Moscow. Pretty interesting itineraries, eh?

Compared to Gaffney, Mother Teresa would be far right of Attila the Hun.

I agree about the dynamics between NK, China and Russia. China can exert influence on NK because alot of their fuel needs come via China. But NK is so bat**** insane that if the mood hits, they would ignore the advice of the chinese and drop a nuke on SK or Japan. Then you have them selling missiles and exporting tech to rogue states in the ME and SE Asia. The Russians would sell the NK's anything to gain hard currency.

Three slut countries. And not in a fun way.

IMO, the Chinese have the least influence on the NKoreans of all. The NKoreans have made it a priority to keep the Chinese off their borders. I remember about six-seven years ago the Chinese massed 10 Armored Divisions on their border during the "Six Party Talks" and the new Kim's daddy didn't blink. Why? Because he had missiles that could hit Beijing. And because he had that railroad link to Moscow. The new Kim's daddy made a well-publicized railroad trip to Moscow during those "Six Party Talks".

Kim’s trip signals Korean thaw
by Lidia Okorokova at 22/08/2011 21:55
The armored train of secretive North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il has arrived in Russia’s Far East, kicking off his first visit to the country in nine years.

The bulletproof train had been spotted close to the border two months ago, prompting speculation that the reclusive leader might be back, asking Russia for economic aid again.

And on Saturday, the Kremlin press service confirmed that Kim was planning to repeat his 2002 tour of Siberia and the Far East, and is expected to meet President Dmitry Medvedev in Ulan Ude, the capital of Buryatia, on Tuesday.

Nine years ago, Kim met with then- President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok. The North Korea leader’s first official visit to Russia was in 2001. Then 59, Kim spent 24 days going across Russia in his armored train, travelling from the Far East to Moscow and back.

I believe that free will is an inherent trait of our species. By nature we strive to be the makers of our own destiny. The creators of the now. At the same time, paradoxically, humans have an innate social equilibrium that regulates the extent to which we feel comfortable controlling our fellow human beings. People like the deceased dictator have an overload of the former and an absence of the latter.

Hitchen's take on NK:
The whole idea of communism is dead in North Korea, and its most recent "Constitution," "ratified" last April, has dropped all mention of the word. The analogies to Confucianism are glib, and such parallels with it as can be drawn are intended by the regime only for the consumption of outsiders. Myers makes a persuasive case that we should instead regard the Kim Jong-il system as a phenomenon of the very extreme and pathological right. It is based on totalitarian "military first" mobilization, is maintained by slave labor, and instills an ideology of the most unapologetic racism and xenophobia.
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/fighting_words/2010/02/a_nation_of_racist_dwarfs.html

But this is what proves Myers right. Unlike previous racist dictatorships, the North Korean one has actually succeeded in producing a sort of new species. Starving and stunted dwarves, living in the dark, kept in perpetual ignorance and fear, brainwashed into the hatred of others, regimented and coerced and inculcated with a death cult: This horror show is in our future, and is so ghastly that our own darling leaders dare not face it and can only peep through their fingers at what is coming.

And how in the world do NK citizens organize a revolution? The citizens spy on themselves, and if you do or say anything that is even slightly uncomplimentary of the gov't then not only you, but your entire family disappears, either to the camp, to execution by bio weapons experiments, etc.

Then theres the fact that you've been brainwashed for the last 60 years and are led to believe that it is America that is depressing the world, and you are the lucky one living in NK. You know of no life other than NK.

A North Korean revolution led by the NK people is just flat impossible.

Don't underestimate the power of decades (even generations) of mass brain washings.

In any event, it couldn't have happened to anyone more deserving. What a messed up country North Korea is. Even if they get started tomorrow, it'll still take 50 years minimum to get that country back on the path to normalicy.

Have you seen any documentaries on that place? The dude IS god in their eyes. I watch a documentary on a eye surgeon they allowed in. He did surgery on like 1k people in a week. After all were healed, they gave ALL credit to Kim Jong. It was sickening to watch people live their lives like that!

I did year at Osan with the indestructible, invincible, Korean Air Police. Those goofy bastards weren't allowed to have ammo. They looked like 13 year old boys, and when I asked one of em what they'd do if the **** hit the fan he said "hide behind you."

And while defending the base all they ever cared about was getting a good amount of sleep. I use to love screwing with em though. Man they use to get pissed at me. Miss those days.

And how in the world do NK citizens organize a revolution? The citizens spy on themselves, and if you do or say anything that is even slightly uncomplimentary of the gov't then not only you, but your entire family disappears, either to the camp, to execution by bio weapons experiments, etc.

Then theres the fact that you've been brainwashed for the last 60 years and are led to believe that it is America that is depressing the world, and you are the lucky one living in NK. You know of no life other than NK.

A North Korean revolution led by the NK people is just flat impossible.

Yeah, my sentiment might be a bit too altuistic.
I still believe the fear they live in will ultimately be the catalyst for change.
If you beat a dog enough it will eventually go for your throat. I dont know what it would take, or how they would go about it, but I cant read about the NK's lives and hope for anything else. Just saying "Well, they're ****ed" just isnt my thing.

They're first in worst human rights violations pretty much every year for 30 years. I lived in South Korea, and how those people put up with NK's BS is beyond me.

I heard a story once, 2nd hand, about a family who fled to China. They told my friend who is an immigration atty that dinnertime was about 1-2 cups of rice for the whole family of 4. That their older brother was left behind because he was in the military and they were scared he would turn them in. Then the worst part of this whole story. The brother, because they defected, disappeared mysteriously and was never seen or heard from again.

I sincerely hope you're right, my heart goes out to those people, but I'm afraid the only realistic way to get that place right and give those citizens freedom is a bloody, devastating, horrible war that involves mainly us and South Korea and hopefully not China that will make Iraq and Afghanistan seem like a walk in the park. I'm not advocating for that, it isn't something I want or want us to do, but I don't know of any other way. In fact I'd rather see things stay the way they are than go to war with them. Just don't know of any other way to fix that place.

This is painful to watch, and obviously a fabrication of the communist government there.

My great uncle was stationed in SK, and he said just imagine the poverty of India combined with the cold of Siberia.

Man, I don't know... in one of my International Finance classes in college, I knew a Chinese girl who said that China would keep piling on debt and fixing the Yuan because the people were part of that Confucius society of community and respect for authority. But poverty breeds discontent... we'll see in NK.

What I'm concerned about is the inexperience of Kim Jong-Un and whether he can continue the vice grip he has on the people, and if he can't what he'll do about it. They have nuclear capability.

This could be good or bad.

The ideologies get skewed when you move to either extreme. The workers party had roots in communism. It isn't ideal, but it never is. Once the balance of power becomes that skewed, economically speaking, it's all the same.

It is possible to move so far to one wing that you find your self on the other side.

Exclusive: North Korea's military to share power with Kim's heir (http://news.yahoo.com/exclusive-n-korea-military-backs-kim-heir-share-065017037.html)
ReutersBy Benjamin Kang Lim | Reuters 30 mins ago

BEIJING (Reuters) - North Korea will shift to collective rule from a strongman dictatorship after last week's death of Kim Jong-il, although his untested young son will be at the head of the ruling coterie, a source with close ties to Pyongyang and Beijing said.

http://l1.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/3jd_bHQnc9xqh2kc_UeHTg--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7Y2g9NDUwO2NyPTE7Y3c9MzQ3O2R4PTA7ZH k9MDtmaT11bGNyb3A7aD0yNDc7cT04NTt3PTE5MA--/http://media.zenfs.com/en_us/News/Reuters/2011-12-21T100235Z_3_BTRE7BK0JRI00_RTROPTP_2_KOREA-NORTH-CHINA.JPG
Jang Song-thaek, brother-in-law of former leader Kim Jong-il and uncle of new leader

The source added that the military, which is trying to develop a nuclear arsenal, has pledged allegiance to the untested Kim Jong-un, who takes over the family dynasty that has ruled North Korea since it was founded after World War Two.

The source declined to be identified but has correctly predicted events in the past, telling Reuters about the North's first nuclear test in 2006 before it took place.

The comments are the first signal that North Korea is following a course that many analysts have anticipated -- it will be governed by a group of people for the first time since it was founded in 1948.

Both Kim Jong-il and his father Kim Il-sung were all-powerful, authoritarian rulers of the isolated state.

The situation in North Korea appeared stable after the military gave its backing to Kim Jong-un, the source said.

"It's very unlikely," the source said when asked about the possibility of a military coup. "The military has pledged allegiance to Kim Jong-un."

North Korea's collective leadership will include Kim Jong-un, his uncle and the military, the source said.

Jang Song-thaek, 65, brother-in-law of Kim Jong-il and the younger Kim's uncle, is seen as the power behind the throne along with his wife Kim Kyong-hui, Kim Jong-il's sister. So too is Ri Yong-ho, the rising star of the North's military and currently its most senior general.

The younger Kim, who is in his late 20s, has his own supporters but is not strong enough to consolidate power, analysts said.

"I know that he's been able to build a group of supporters around himself who are of his generation," said Koh Yu-hwan, president of the Korean Association of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

"So it is not entirely elders in their 70s, plus some like Jang in their 60s, who are backing him. These young backers will be emerging fairly soon."
