@janie-janie: In all likelihood, sadly, it means just about nothing. Since his 2008 stroke, Kim Jong Il has been preparing his son to take his place, and from all appearances it would seem the party is just as behind him as they were the previous two leaders. We can always hope, though, because the people of North Korea deserve more than the life they lead under such brutal dictatorship.

I don’t particularly subscribe to the notion of ‘celebrating’ anyone’s death as a good thing. I think the passing of human life, even if they were horrible during their time on earth, is never to be celebrated. Idk, it just seems wrong to me. Relief, perhaps, but not celebration.

I’m honestly worried.  Kim Jong-Il’s son is even crazier than his dad.  At least when the father played the crazy card, he knew when to stop.  In other words, he was perfectly happy to threaten using nukes or doing something else equally batshit, but he wouldn’t ever actually do it (because if he did, his UN funds would dry up).  His son is so insane, though, that I don’t know if he recognizes the line.

This is terrifying.  Kim Jong Eun is weak, and the military leaders know it.  He is either going to be more horrific and dictorial than his father (Napoleon Syndrome) or the military leaders will take over control.  Either way, alot of people are in the middle.  People in North Korea are already starving to death, 100’s of thousands are in labor camps, and these nut pots have nuclear capabilities.  No good is going to come out of this, nope, no good.

As long as it is one man ruling the rest (a dictatorship), it will NEVER be good.

I don’t have confidence in any “leaders” anywhere. The World is a scary place!

I was reading a couple articles and from what people can tell, Kim Jung Un is very, very similar to his father, very competitive, and loves basketball (because that’s helpful?)  I’m not sure how he’s going to react to the Christmas Tree Displays that South Korea has put up near the border, or what’s going to happen with the planned food donation that the US was planning. I’m not surprised the surrounding countries have increased their surveillance of the North Korea, nor that the Asian stock Market/emerging markets has gone down.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: I saw that he liked NBA also. You are right, who cares??

@tksjewelry: Agreed. This news scared me a bit when I saw it last night. Worried about what could and what may happen next.

@Eva Peron: I am with you there.

I don’t know much about his son I can’t comment.  I would always worry about someone no matter the amount of information I knew about them.  Never know what type a person anyone could be.

@tksjewelry: Fan.tas.tic.

@janie-janie: Pets might actually let us understand a little more about him. But yeah… let’s get some more solid information, I know his age is near impossible to figure out, but knowing if his mother was an offical wife or whatever might be nice
