The last Stalinist gone?

| December 19, 2011

North Korean news reported the death of Kim Jong Il on Saturday listing the cause of death as “over worked”. Marching his nation backwards into the 19th century, Kim Jong Il’s death is of little consequence to anyone outside of the two Koreas. The Washington Times reports;

South Korea immediately declared an emergency and put its armed forces on alert. President Lee Myung-bak canceling all planned events Monday and the country’s National Security Council was meeting in emergency session Monday afternoon.

In September 2010, Mr. Kim’s youngest son, Kim Jong-un, was elevated to be his successor.

According to the North’s Korean Central News Agency, he was named head of his father’s funeral committee. The funeral was set for Dec. 28.

The younger Mr. Kim is in his late 20s and little is known about him besides the fact that he studied in Switzerland and has no political experience.

If my son wasn’t stationed in South Korea at the moment, I wouldn’t care either. I’m sure that the OWS crowd will have a moment of silence in remembrance of the socialist hermit king.

Go to about :45 in this video to see how the OWS reveres and remembers Kim Jong Il;

And, oh, yeah, they test-fired a short range missile on the same day that they announced the death of their Dear leader.

    Netflix streaming has ‘Kimjonglia’ a great documentary, “Crossing the Line’ a puff piece with Joe Dresnok, and a National Geo episode about a Nepalese doctor who goes there and operates on 1,000 folks with cataracts each year. The info is good but the reporter, well anyhow its worth a look. All three are worth a look. YouTube has a lot of pieces of hilarious DRK propaganda films.

    The Chargers beat the shit out of the “#1 defense” of the Ravens, AND Kim Jong Il died? Wow what an awesome day for all of us.

  6. El Marco says:

    Doc, I feel the same about the Chiefs trouncing the Packers.

    Of course, now the leader of DPRK is “The Dear Successor” who joined the Army last year as a 4-star General although he looks like 200 pounds of chewed bubblegum. And they say he has no experience. Pshaw!

    Great article in The Onion:,18374/

    The country could implode if elders in the military try for a power grab. If (should say when) it all comes crumbling down hope it does not head south of the DMZ.

    Kim’s reason for death was exhaustion from defending his country from us. Yeah, right. 1984. Exponentially.

    “Marching his nation backwards into the 19th century…” North Korea was economically ahead back then there where it is now, for that matter it was managed better under the Japanse then the Kims.

    “If my son wasn’t stationed in South Korea at the moment, I wouldn’t care either.” The “Great Successor” is unlikely to do anything immediately, he has to secure his power base first. Good Luck to your son.

    Its hilarious every biopic of Kim finds a way to insert that image or clip.
