    The absolute authority that lasted for 37 years, Chairman Kim Jong-Il's death is rallying the government into idolizing him for North Koreans.

    North Korean news presses have started advocating the 29-year-old-immature Kim Jong-Un's coming to power as revolutionary and rightful out of sudden. They have also been advertising that Kim Jong-Il died on his way to a field visit during an early morning train ride, to get North Korean citizens to mourn for him.

    Also, only one day after the annoucement of his death, they have taken his body to Mt. Kumsoo Memorial Palace where Kim Il-Sung's body is preserved. They have been broadcasting Kim Jong-Un with every government official showing respect and condolence, as well as citizens mourning hysterically to set up the mood for national mourning.

    Right now, in North Korea, the unthinkable is happening.

    And former North Korean citizens - North Korean defectors - know that the tears they see on these poor citizens, are in fact fake.

    According to these defectors, all the scenes you see on N. Korean national television is completely staged. All the hysterical mourning and crying are done for propaganda purposes. How sad and cynical is this?

    It's horribly sad. Sad the lengths a tyrannical regime will got to control people. They try to protray the guy like a modern day Xerxes. Almost God like (well you'd have to be to golf a 39 on 18 holes on top of never having played the game before as they once reported).

    I think some of those tears are real. How would you react if you were told God had died? Someone you had been told provided you everything, who was flawless, who the entire nation depended on. The people do not know any better. They are scared, in shock and yes sad.
    They have no access to the outside world. No radio, no TV, no Internet to tell them otherwise.

    How did North Korean leader Kim Jong Il really die?

    South Korean spies are skeptical about the official Pyongyang line that Kim died of a heart attack while hard at work on a train Saturday morning, the Los Angeles Times' John Glionna reports from Seoul:


    South Korea's top spy, Won Sei-hoon, told lawmakers in Seoul that a review of satellite photographs revealed that Kim's train was actually stationary at a Pyongyang station at the time of the ruler's death, as announced by the North, according to media reports.

    "There were no signs the train ever moved," South Korean media quoted Won as telling officials.

    I would agree with this. You have to remember that those who are able to defect are not only probably smarter than the average North Korean, they probably are much less susceptable emotionally to all the propaganda, which is the reason they defected in the first place.

    One also has to appriciate the part that Asian philosophy and culture plays into the North Korean State. Even Asian countries with western style governments, such as South Korea and Japan show tendencies towards compliance with the state over personal liberty. Confucisim, Buddism and Shintoism all have strong leanings towards order, and acceptance of authority. North Korea has taken those tendencies and throttled them to the extreme.

    I agree with you 100%, Kim Jong Il and his father were looked upon as gods in that country.
