Kim Jong Il, the North Korean dictator is dead at the age of 69. It is being reported that he died of an apparent heart attack, according to state run media. Although many North Korean’s were seen sobbing on video, maybe the next leader of North Korea will feed his people? Kim Jung Il has ruled North Korea for the past 17 year with an iron fist. The heir-apparent to Kim Jong Il is his son, Jong-un, who is only in his 20′s. One has to wonder whether Jong-un is prepared or will have the support.
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.
So one of the leaders of George W. Bush’s “Axis of Evil” won’t be down for breakfast or as Weasel Zippers states, hell has a new occupant. Isn’t it telling that MSM outlets refer to Kim Jung Il as … , when all of us know that the former North Korean dictator was a menace and a global annoyance.
What now for the future of North Korea and its relationship with the rest of the world? South Korea has been put on high alert.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said late Sunday that the administration is “closely monitoring” reports of Mr. Kim’s death, that President Barack Obama had been notified and that U.S. officials are in close touch with South Korea and Japan.
“We remain committed to stability on the Korean peninsula, and to the freedom and security of our allies,” Mr. Carney said.
