Kim Jong-il is dead
Actually WSJ just reported the following -
State TV announced that Kim Jong Eun will take over as leader of North Korea-@wsjworld
Send Michelle instead. She's already halfway there, with her own security detail. She'll love what his diet plan did for his countrymen. And seeing her will make it easy for those countrymen to stomach his replacement.
How many Marxist-Stalinist leaders we now have left in the world? Less see, Chavez, Fidel? Any more? Oops, yes, Obama.
Good riddance. Hope the little nutball rots in hell.
So his son takes over and the military fights for power.
Does N.Korea have a Gorby there?
They’re all Honeckers, aren’t they?
Not that I know of.
Only two ways I see this thing going down and none of it is good for the nork citizens. Coup by the military ousting that family line (completely) then in-fighting and the fraction of the North; The family line "suddenly" taking to democracy and wishing to join the rest of the world (in which case, see my previous point). The "power" vacuum is going to create some problems for the South and we have a weakling in the White House who will undoubtedly be shedding tears over this and looking for any way to weaken our stance in lieu of what could be an end to all of this.
While the "world" (just the media really) focus' on their dear leader going toes up, other enemies in the axis of evil will exploit this to make their own moves.
/thinking out loud..
Sic Semper Tyrannus.
Kim Jong dead? I didn’t even know he was il.
BREAKING: U.S. MAY RAISE ALERT LEVEL
per Bloomberg 22:58 ET
Rot in hell Kim, Rot in Hell.
He died of Roneriness.
Burn in hell.
I agree. He called North Korea a "slave state." His article linked below is titled "Worse Than 1984."
I just hope that this doesn’t set off a civil war with nukes. Or that the new leader marches south.
Yonhap: (URGENT) President Lee orders all gov’t officials on emergency status after Kim’s death
In moments like this, you realize how archaic ideologically our own leadership is.
A moment to assert ourselves and our ideals, to promote change and goodness.
Forget it. Third generation read diaper baby in the White Hut.
Post-colonialist despising the West.
Chairman Bob Avakian would do better in that place.
Had an impulse to turn on my television and see what the news networks were saying about this, then realized there’s no way any “media” would have information quicker than FR.
Amazing how this site gets when really big news breaks.
Well, they do go in threes. Prayers up for a hat-trick!
The real nightmare is millions of refugees pouring over the border.
Thank you. This is ENORMOUS news.
Apparently, North Korean aggression can be attributed to South Korea not being accommodating enough towards a schizophrenic, genocidal, erratic, inherited Marxist dictatorship.
IMHO the real nightmare is if the son thinks he’s seen as weak and vulnerable by potential competitors in the military, he could conclude he has to do something tough.
That could get complicated.
For a lot of people, and places.
If it hits that point, then we don’t have to worry as much about a war.
But the refugees might not be refugees. Perfect set up for a false flag operation.
Thanks for the reminder. Hitchens, Kim and ?
(Julia Roberts? Alec Baldwin? We gotta do better than that!)
I’m beginning to believe that Kim Jong-il’s passing could be the first event that could lead to a slow re-unification of Korean Peninsula—a process that could take up to 15 years to complete.
When complete tyrants like this die, it reminds me of this classic movie w/Tom Hulce portraying the projectionist for Stalin. Revealing the cult of Stalin, much like this Korean jumped up psychotic. If you have time, here’s the link to free 11 part youtube.
Appalling really. If you don’t have time then:
Raise a toast to FREEDOM!
Fox News should have John Bolton on now doing analysis; instead, Huckleberry is interviewing “creepy eyes” Bachmann.
Pyongyang Patty has emerged on state TV in black chimachogori, crying, announcing the death. So we know SHE has not been purged. Phone lines to Pyongyang are blocked. Reminiscent of when KIS kicked the bucket.
Anybody know why Fox News is running a Huckabee re-run instead of covering this? As much as I dislike Fox News these days for shilling for Romney and pushing sleaze, I like CNN even less.
Rot in hell, you murderous tyrant.
And say hey to Teddy Kennedy when you see him.
Is it necessary to slime Bachmann?
69? The good, as they say, die young!
Valcav Havel is number 3.
Faux News is a joke.
I will not mention a great man like Havel in the same sentence as that monster.
Not necessary, but edifying.
Groovy. Maybe the South Koreans should feel free to turn on their Christmas lights now! Doubt it will matter to lackeys in PyongYang who will be doubtlessly crying their guts out for their departed Dear Leader (or else).
I’m sure all the limousine communists like Sean Penn, Michael Moore, and Susan Sarandon are all in tears tonight.
One of their heros is taking a dirt nap.
