And yes, to commit that much forces to a war, it would need a draft. But it doesn't mention where they gonna get it... and how much time it would take to train the new troops... or if they talk about a NATO commitment... or a draft of old war veterans.

PYONGYANG, Oct. 18 (AP) - (Kyodo)—Two Japanese scholars arrived in Pyongyang on Saturday for talks expected to cover relations between Japan and North Korea under Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso, who took office last month.
Haruki Wada, professor emeritus at the University of Tokyo, and Tadashi Kimiya, associate professor at the university's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, arrived in the North Korean capital via the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang.
Wada and Kimiya also visited North Korea from March to April 2005 and met with Song Il Ho, who was vice director of the North Korean Foreign Ministry's Asian Affairs Department at that time. Song is now ambassador to talks on normalizing relations with Japan.
SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) -
South Korea joined efforts on Sunday to shore up banks and markets pummeled by the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression which world leaders said called for a coordinated global response. Authorities in Seoul pledged $130 billion in state guarantees and capital injections hours after U.S. and European leaders said they planned to hold a series of global summits to try to form an action plan.
The crisis has raised fears in the West that many countries could enter recession this year and next, but for China, one country certain it will survive the financial meltdown, the criticism was clear -- it was the West's fault.

There is just assumption what it can be, but ofcourse the health of Kim Jong-Il is naturally in head of all rumors.
But... It can be something totally other. We can just wait now, but something big is happening in Korean Peninsula, and all of those who has watch the news, it can be anything from A-Bombs and new KoreanWar, to Coup or Civilwar.
Propably nothing good from there...
They are letting the cat out of the bag on Kim Jong being a robot. He was created to spy for th US but is now a rogue operator with a Nuclear core that power's him. Beware Kim Jong, the us will regain control of your positronic brain
