North Korean Leader Kim Jong-il Dead

Kim Jong-ilReports David Chance and Jack Kim of Reuters:

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il died of a heart attack while on a train trip, state media reported on Monday, sparking immediate concern over who is in control of the reclusive state and its nuclear program.

A tearful television announcer dressed in black said the 69-year old had died on Saturday of physical and mental over-work on his way to give “field guidance” — a reference to advice dispensed by the “Dear Leader” on his trips to factories, farms and military bases.

Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il’s youngest son, was named by North Korea’s official news agency KCNA as the “great successor” to his father, which lauded him as “the outstanding leader of our party, army and people.”

    Oh what a Glorious funeral this is going to be.  No doubt there will be signs in heaven, trees fruiting upon the winter solstice, the Dear Leader appearing in children’s dreams –smiling, laughing in fatherly beneficence, his belly shaking like a bowl full of dotorimuk.

      Indeed, I’m waiting for old man saud to kick off – that’s going to be a real fun show.  I have no doubt much of the ‘arab spring’ has been a round of 5-card draw realigning all the players for that eventuality.
