Well, let’s see if he can get his personal “vices” that he denies to his North Korean countrymen (like, you know, FOOD) smuggled in to his cell in Hell.

I had a feeling that’s what it was when they said he had pancreatic problems.

Still time for the little sack of crap to seek some redemption.

The Mayo Clinic calls pancreatic cancer “one of the most serious of cancers” because of the rapidity with which it spreads. Pancreatic cancer is rarely detected in its early stages and, as a result, is a leading cause of cancer death.

Because the pancreas is a storage depot for digestive enzymes, anything compromising to this organ is potentially very dangerous.

Signs and Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer
Signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer often do not appear until the disease is quite advanced. Most symptoms are non-specific and varied, and may often as not be caused by other conditions. Early diagnosis is crucial, so it’s important to consult your health care provider if any of the following symptoms persist:

Appetite loss
Change in urine and/or stool color (urine may turn orange or reddish brown; stool may turn yellow, reddish, or become gray or chalky-white)
Clinical depression has been reported in association with pancreatic cancer, though the associated mechanism is unknown
Diarrhea (less common)
Digestive problems
Fatigue
Indigestion (especially with fatty foods)
Itching
Nausea and vomiting (in advanced cases)
Pain (dull, fairly constant, mostly localized to the middle and upper back, and the upper abdomen; upper abdominal pain may radiate to middle or upper back; worse after eating or when lying down)
Sudden-onset diabetes or a sudden change in blood-sugar control in diabetics
Trousseau sign is sometimes associated with pancreatic cancer. This symptom involves the spontaneous formation of blood clots in portal the blood vessels, deep veins of the extremities, or in superficial veins throughout the body.
Unintentional weight loss
Yellowing of the skin and eye whites (jaundice)

As someone who's watched a family member die of pancreatic cancer (it's a horrible cancer to have) depending on how far along Kim Jung Il's cancer is, he can have anywhere from 3-6 months to live. Depends on any treatment of course.

On a similar note, I can't think of a more fitting way for him to die. The most painful cancer on one of the most brutal dictators the world has known.

A fitting end.

Pancreatic cancer life expectancy is very low. Once a person has been diagnosed with the condition, general pancreatic life expectancy is only 5 to 8 months, though 20 percent of pancreatic sufferers will live at least 1 year. The pancreatic cancer life expectancy for sufferers living over 5 years is only 5 percent.

The pancreas, (an organ that secretes enzymes that help aide in digestion), is well-hidden in the body. Despite its size it can be hard to get to even for skilled surgeons. Of course, the location of the pancreas only affects doctors being able to see the tumors, making the condition harder to diagnose in earlier stages. There is also the element of the speed through which pancreatic cancer tumors spread.

Additionally, the tumors can get into areas of the body where they are virtually impossible to expel, even through top-notch chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Examples include the blood vessels and the lymph nodes.

The people that have a longer pancreatic life expectancy have pancreatic tumors that have not spread to the more dangerous regions of the body. They also get treated through surgery, where parts of the pancreas as well as the tumors themselves get removed. However, there are many cases that even having the ‘best’ pancreatic cancer will only increase one’s pancreatic life expectancy minimally. Of individuals who have the easier forms of pancreatic cancer, only 16 percent will live past 5 years.

In conclusion, pancreatic cancer life expectancy is very morbid, and is definitely not pleasant news to those who have pancreatic cancer.

WOW. I usually feel sorry for people with Cancer..but considering it’s Lil Kim...He’s gonna die a very Ronrey man. Considering most cases of this cancer are only diagnosed once they are advanced I don’t think he has very long....This type usually has a bad prognosis.......He’s a gonner...

I suggest the US give Kim a few Megatons of Chemotherapy to help him along his way.........

Let’s hope he’s not totally nuts like Hitler or the militarists in Japan who think that their country should commit suicide along with it’s leader or someone who thinks his legacy is reuniting Korea the hard way. After all, he’s got nothing to lose.

Is this where we heap platitudes upon the stricken or risk being labeled "racists" or "haters" by outside trollers? Possibly even chronically offended members.

I already know the answer, so re Dear Leader, may he keep his strength and let us all hope for a miracle and whatever time he has left be interesting. Also, it would be nice if he'd stop taking down out our govt websites. There.

Heavenly Father, I pray for Kim Jong Il, I pray that he will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before it is eternally too late. I pray that you would transform his life and that he would boldly testify to the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ before his entire population of North Korea so that multitudes may come to Christ. Lord, you saved Nebucahdnezzar, you saved the apostle Paul, you saved me, if you can save us, and deliver us from our sin, you can save this man. He does not desreve it, neither do we, but your arm is not shortened that you can not save. Nevertheless, thy will be done, in Jesus name, amen.

I wonder if he’s thinking about trying to take as much of the world with him as he can.

At the Three Revolutions Exhibition Hall in northwestern Pyongyang, there hangs a big sign that reads, “A world without North Korea need not survive.” What do these words mean? And what do they tell us, if anything, about Kim Jong Il’s military mind?

In late 1993, when North Korea was gearing up to withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, fears of an imminent war broke out across the Korean Peninsula. The eyes of the world were firmly fixed on the region. Not a day passed without some international coverage of the North Korean nuclear crisis.

In the midst of such concerns, Kim Il Sung convened a meeting of all his military officers above the rank of commanding general. One general who was in the room later explained what happened next. Kim posed to his generals the following question: “The American scoundrels are about to start a war against us. Will we be able to defeat them?”

The generals replied without hesitation: “Yes, we can win!” “When have we ever lost a war?” “We shall win every battle!” “How can we ever lose when we have you, Commander of Steel, our Great Leader, to lead us?” “Oh, Great Leader! Just give us the order!” “In a single breath we will rush to the South, drive out the American imperialists, and unify the fatherland!”

Despite such vigorous displays of bravado, Kim Il Sung did not appear satisfied. “That’s all very well,” he replied. “But what if we lose? What shall we do if we lose?”

Kim Il Sung’s prodding was unexpected. The moment that their Great Leader uttered the word “lose,” the generals’ lips closed and remained tightly shut. As they sat still in extreme anxiety, the 51-year-old Kim Jong Il suddenly stood up. Raising his clenched fists, Kim yelled out, “Great Leader! I will be sure to destroy the Earth! What good is this Earth without North Korea?”

Kim Il Sung looked at his eldest son and smiled.
