The Leader of North Korea.Kim Jung Un.

Updated on December 4, 2016

The new leader , Kim Jong Un .

With the death of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, there appear to be some changes in the most secretive nation on earth as his son Kim Jong Un takes over the reigns of government.Of course, nobody really believes he is in charge, but the people who run the country probably since months before the death of Kim Jong-il must have come to the conclusion that the old leader's son was the most favorable face to present to the world as the New leader of North Korea .For over a year now North Korea has been keeping a low profile and refrained from the usual threats of going to war against the US , South Korea ,and the western world.There have also been reports of some economic reform ,for example in some regions farmers are allowed to keep one-third of their crops for sale in the markets, and this is touted as what the government calls " the Establishing of a New Economic Management System in Our Own Style"There have been attempts before at some level of economic reform but they were short lived and undone due to internal political disagreement and unsuccessful results.But China ,the country's closest ally insists in presenting as an example its own success and urging economic reform.And if I was a betting man I would put some money on the table that the US government has now for a while engaged in negotiations with the new North Korean regime and it is possible we will be hearing about the results in the near future, a little October surprise maybe?

Where in the world is Kim Jung Un ?

And now in the latest turn of the Kim Jung Un story the North Korean leader hasn't been seen in public for weeks,stirring the rumors of-of him being deposed by the men who were backing him behind the scenes,or maybe that group was overtaken by a rival faction within the military who are the real power brokers in one of the most brutal regimes the world has ever known.Another theory is that he is sick,this theory has been leaked by sympathisers ,which leads me to believe this is totally false unless his illness is serious enough to put his life in danger and they are already preparing the successor .But whatever the case may be there is no silver lining in the horizon for the suffering people of North Korea or the international community.

I Think This Time the Little Troll Went Too Far and Not Even All the Tea in China Will Save Him

there's a saying in my country of origin that says" sweets rot your teeth",i guess North Korea started eating candy about twenty years ago and it liked it but then it got to a point where it couldn't bring itself to stop and now it's teeth are starting to rot and the result of what was intended by the last attack will be the exact opposite,because obviously as Kim jong ill sees the end is near for him and wants to position his son to inherit the throne by uniting the country against a foreign enemy as dictators usually do the miscalculation is that the US has a weak president in Barak Obama who under almost no circumstance would respond militarily to a provocation such as this specially being that china has north Korea's back and owns so much us treasury,the problem with this view is that just as the US usually misjudges other countries and peoples reaction to its policies and actions because it sees reality through its own eyes instead of from the perspective of the other party ,so has china and NK expect a reaction as if Obama alone was our government as it would be in their own countries, he is not,a democracy is much more complex than an authoritative regime and no matter how much of a peace freak he is or is not the united states is still the only superpower militarily and otherwise and there are limits to what can be overlooked ,it looks like north Korea crossed that line and the results are yet to be seen.In any case I don't think a country where the great majority of the population suffers from hunger and extreme poverty will be able to continue on its course of defying the whole world with ridiculous provocation and senseless threats for an indefinite amount of time when even its own mentor and protector China is starting to realize that the Korean regime is more harmful to its national interest than any benefit it can reap from supporting the rogue neighbor.Not that we will see any public demonstration of the inevitable change in policy, but behind the scenes the giant world power has the means to make sure North Korea starts moving away from its current position of being a destabilizing and disrupting force in the region and become the quieter and less strident third rate underdeveloped country it really is and not the super power the deranged dynasty of hereditary buffoons who ruled it for decades has tried unsuccessfully to convince everyone it is.
