Dear Leader is Dead! Long Live Nuclear War!

the long revered, hated and repulsive leader of North Korea died yesterday of an apparent heart attack (read: successful CIA covert operation) on a train ride in North Korea. Kin Jong Il, the long-time leader of the nuclear-power communist country, has long been grooming his youngest son to take the reigns of the country when he either dies or leaves his post. Kim's other sons are not exactly the world leader types, one being a bully, fat and arrogant SOB in the North Korean army, one of the largest armies in the world.

With the passing of the torch to his youngest son, the Kim dynasty is sure to continue for years to come, as the new leader of the nuclear power is only 28 years old.

And, now for something completely familiar...

Why Pick The Youngest Son To Take Over?

Makes me wonder why they would pick the youngest of the 3 sons (Egads! "My Three Sons"... and nobody picked up on this yet? No Saturday Night Live skits? No Letterman Top-10 lists? I can't be the first!) to take over the reigns of one of the largest militaries in the world! One of the 3 sons (seriously, nobody? "My 3 Sons"... come on!) is an embarrassment to anyone who wears a military uniform, especially anyone in North Korea. Yet, he still lives, not yet killed by a stray friendly bullet? He is very fat (he looks like a big beach ball) and lazy. He has a reported IQ of under 90. And yet, he thrives in the North Korean Army, getting frequent commendations and promotions!

And, now for something completely different!

So, we have a nuclear-powered nation, one of the top-5 biggest militaries on the planet, armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs (but no missiles capable of reaching Canadian or American shores. Yet! Well, maybe Hawaii...) being run by a 28-year old despot, autocratic ruler. His father was known as "Dear Leader" (and, if you didn't you'd be shot) - wonder what he's going to make the nation call him? "Dear Cutey Pie, Come to Bed Leader"? "Dear Don't Send the Bomb Leader"?

And, I really do wonder if he will be good for the country of North Korea, and their surrounding countries? They must be shaking in their boots right about now, wondering what his first "official military decision" will be. I mean the people in South Korea (where the IL's want to "expand" their borders into) and China. Would this be the textbook definition of when to use a military first strike?

Let's just hope that the new, young and rather impressionable leader of North Korea decides to make a good name for himself, to try to foster a good image of himself internationally. He could cut their military budget in half, divert some of the Billions of dollars a year from nuclear weapons designs into health care, food and shelter for his disparate countrymen. Hands up everyone who thinks he will be good for NK, and for the world as a whole. Now, keep those hands up, reach down a little and scratch your head!

Will North Korea Flex It's Nuclear Muscles?

Will North Korea strike out with a nuclear attack?

      Makes you wonder what would have happened with the war if there were no nuclear, atomic, hydrogen etc bombs! Would we be living under a socialist regime? Would we be communists? Would we all be peasants?

      I agree with you Singh. It is hard for me to believe that the epitome of democracy at that time bombed Japan . It is a shame and scary too. The USA have no limits. Nuclear weapons are necessary to counterbalance the American greed.

      And after they saw the results, the nuclear non-proliferation treaty was instigated. But, hehe, I'm not American, and don't forget that North Korea has detonated nuclear warheads in the Pacific ocean recently! They are a military with little social fabric, and that's scary - they either become civilians or attack somebody.

      But, I show all comments, and whether we agree or not, the point is that we do agree that nuclear weapons are bad, and nobody should have them. The whole nuclear-as-power thingy should be totally forsaken and forgotten.

      Thanks for dropping by, MG...

      I am amazed how some people get paranoid about other countries having nuclear weapons. After all only the USA has used the weapon on a defeated Japan, just as an experiment, to test the efficacy of the A bomb.
