At his latest public appearance yesterday Kim Jong Il, the supreme leader of North Korea, was deathly — a scrawny, gaunt, almost skeletal figure...The skin hung slack around his jaws and neck and he walked with the limp that was in evidence at his last public appearance.
It was clear then that Mr Kim had suffered an episode of severe ill health, apparently a stroke in August that removed him from public view....his health has since taken a drastic turn for the worse.
While I still think the North Korean situation is over-hyped in terms of danger, I find this sort of news rather disquieting.
I managed to get to the site but still no pic with story.Btw,cant cut/paste with a mobile phone...but i can download video from youtube!PS.Thanks for the link.

If he isn't already dead, he will be soon. Even when he does die, i could see TPTB in NK keeping him alive in the public eye long enough to launch whatever campaign they have planned.
They will attach him to strings and walk him around like a marionette.
Weird how hes disintegrating and his face is falling off. Those are the characteristics of a dead person. or an old person, but still the situation warrants some speculation as to weather or not hes alive.

Actually, bizzarely enough, his long-dead father is still officially the supreme ruler of the nation "for All Eternity." He has the title "Great Leader." The current Kim is merely the "Dear Leader."
