SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Kim Jong Il, North Korea's mercurial and enigmatic leader, has died. He was 69.

Kim's death was announced Monday by state television from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.

Kim is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008 but appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country carefully documented by state media.

The leader, reputed to have had a taste for cigars, cognac and gourmet cuisine, was believed to have had diabetes and heart disease.

Whaddya think guys? What are your early predictions?

China does NOT want a unified Korea right on her border?

Will they move in & take-over? Predictions?

It’s early, yes. Take a shot.

I say China eventually tries to take-over —before China’s economic lurching she’d already PLANNED for it, and now that they’re spoiling for a distraction, I’d say that goes DOUBLY so, now.

Only about 15 years of misrule compared to his dad’s 40+. Time to see what the next nut in the family tree is like, I guess.

well this is big.

I wonder if the military or even China will accept his son as the new leader?

I also predict that China takes over. ObaMao welcomes the development as a stabilizing force. Yomiuri News in Japan is already announcing that he's been dead since at least Saturday morning. Confusion and instability is expected.

I imagine his son probably already chopped the balls off of a few generals to establish his authority.

There are better questions:

What will Obummer do?

Does he have the cajones to stand up to China if they attempt to interfere?

What if the new “Dear Leader” tries to flex his young muscles and establish his “credentials”?

Joe Biden to Kim Jong Il at funeral: “Kim; Stand up, let the people see you!”

China’s been in control over there for the whole time. They use them as a sock puppet to distract the USA’s attention for their own purposes.

You have to love it!

The most isolated and thoroughly communist country in the world is now ruled by a hereditary dynasty! Just like Russia was prior to the Communist Revolution.

Communism has now failed militarily, economically and politically! I don't think there is another way that political system can fail.

I've been trying to rhyme Kim Jong Il with Ding-Dong, the witch is dead, but I'm just enjoying the news too much to keep on trying.

If we reelect Obama, I'm sure he'll think of something.
