    North Korean Leader Kim Jong Il, 69, Has Died | Fox News
    Kim Jong Il, North Korea's longtime leader, has died at 69 of heart failure, state TV reported on Monday in a "special broadcast."

    State media reported that Kim died on Dec. 17 of a heart ailment on a train due to a "great mental and physical strain" during a "high intensity field inspection." It said an autopsy was done on Dec. 18 and "fully confirmed" the diagnosis.

    Hopefully this will lead to a step towards the unification of Korea and a reduction in the repression of the people of North Korea.

    However, his son is set to take over and sounds just as screwy as he is.

    Usually a weak dictator needing support from the Army will start an international incident to show that he is not weak. So we can expect some difficulties in that area of the world specifically the island that they had the little fracas over recently. Its hard to say and it is possible the Army may just take over, a junta perhaps, and use the new guy as a figurehead.
