There may have been another post on this set up already...but I think it is very odd timing for North Korea to make this sort of announcement only a
few days/weeks after the world is starting to question whether or not the man running the country is even Kim Jong:
"Western officials confirm to FOX News that there is intelligence suggesting that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il suffered a stroke on Aug. 14 and
could be incapacitated — even wheelchair bound.
Sources tell FOX News that Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill's emergency visit to Beijing last week was more to talk about how to
approach North Korea in the event of Kim's incapacitation, and less to talk about the reassembling of the Yongbyon nuclear facility..."
Looks like the North Koreans are trying to find a way to save face...while they find a new way to hoard power.
