Kim Jong-il Is Dead. So Meet The New Boss...

...and there's no doubt he'll be the same as the old boss.  Or worse.  But first, the announcement we've all been waiting for:

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has died at the age of 69, state-run television has announced.

His death was announced in an emotional statement read out on national television.

The announcer, wearing black, said he had died on Saturday of physical and mental over-work.

Kim Jong-il has been the leader of the impoverished communist country since the death of his father Kim Il-sung in 1994.
He suffered a stroke in 2008 and was absent from public view for several months.

His designated successor is believed to be his third son, Kim Jong-woon, who is thought to be in his late 20s.

So meet Kim Jong-un (the proper spelling is as ambiguous as his age). Does the phrase "baby-faced killer" mean anything to you?

I don't know, but why do I feel that no matter how unimaginable, things are about to take a turn for the worse in North Korea...?
