North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Il Dead (video)
Reaganite Republican ^ | December 19, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 12/18/2011 9:50:23 PM PST by Reaganite Republican

In the wake of the death yesterday of Czech 'Velvet Revolution' hero Vaclav Havel, today the DPRK announced the passing of what amounts to his moral/historical opposite, Kim Jong Il.  North Korea's eccentric and oppressive Stalinist leader is  said to have died of heart failure (who knows they truth- the state long lied about were and when he was even born). Kim Jong Il was was 69 by most accounts, and is said to have suffered a stroke in 2008 that left him frail and looking to groom twenty-something son Kim Jong Un  as a replacement.

The 'Hermit Kingdom's Kim Jong Il had actually appeared to be getting around OK on recent trips to China and Russia, yet it appears his taste for the high life at last did him in-  he suffered from diabetes and heart disease.

A special announcement broke onto state TV to announce the death with a statement: "It is the biggest loss for the party ... and it is our people and nation's biggest sadness," an anchorwoman clad in black Korean traditional dress said in a voice choked with tears. She said the nation must "change our sadness to strength and overcome our difficulties." Naturally the South Koreans had a little bit different take on events, and not just the lack of tears being shed: that country promptly put it's military on high alert as President Lee Myung-bak convened a national security council meeting after the news of death of 'Dear Leader' Kim Jong Il. The South was unable to confirm any of the reports. Things largely appeared normal in Pyongyang, according to foreigners calling out of the North Korean capital- but Asian stock markets slipped on the news, as this all raises the possibility of increased instability both in the nuclear-armed country (the Army -the real power in North Korea)- is said to not favor peach-fuzzed Kim Jong Un)...

So, nail him to his perch and put him in the pet shop window with a “For Sale” sign.

(People will mistake his lack of movement for being played out after a long squawk.)

Imagine for a moment just how long that line must stretch of people waiting ... to relieve themselves on dear leader's grave.

Surely Obama will be attending the service? It’s an opportunity for him to bow to the replacement beloved dictator.

"Seriously...get OUT of my head"

But it's comfy cozy in here.

(I was thinking of rearranging the furniture just a bit. And that ratty couch the dogs chewed up - it's gotta go.)

That ‘ratty’ $2000 Queen Anne camel-back got tossed long ago.

You’re obviously wandering around in my long term memory area.

The new “sofas” are This End Up pine daybeds.

[and for the love of God...do *not* open the door marked “repressed memories” while you’re rambling about up there!]
