    Unfortunately any new leader in N. Korea will want to prove his military strength which would also rally the country around him. Whether it is part of the Old Guard or his son I foresee violence on a large scale after the violence that will take place during the sorting out of who is to be the new leader.

    One less country for Obama to invade... right!?


    Now, if only some nation would invade the USA to restore Civil Rights and Freedom of Speech to American citizens, that would be perfect.
    (I'm afraid the NDAA, the SOPA & the PIPA will put USA on the level of China, North Korea and Iran.)

    Rejoice: One of enemy is dead.
    Tragically for the enslaved North Koreans, the West, led by the US Regime, and South Korea will now "engage", appease and cringe before the new tyrant and delay, for as long as possible, the day of North Korean liberation.
    China will own the new tyrant even more than it did the old.

    The biggest leverage that North Korea has is that nobody wants them or their twisted, starving people. Not China and not the South, either. The burden of supporting a collapsed Norh would drain the South for years to come.

    This is good news for the starving masses of N. Koreans. The Great Leader's massive food intake can now be allotted to the food kitchens.

    I'd like to see one of these high and mighty educated commentators explain, 'will the starving masses in North Korea notice that their Great Successor is a chubby, well-fed boy?'
