This could mean many things....

He is doing some future bargaining with the Chinese PM regarding North Koreas financial future...

He is on his last legs and is going there for medical treatment....

The North will attack the South and he doesn't want to be anywhere near the place when it gets leveled back to the stone age.

Another possibility; maybe he knows that the SK ship that was sunk last week is going to get pinned on NK and he's worried they'll attack.

It was well known that he was going to China... it's ``supposed`` to be for nuclear disarmament talks.... or more likely to receive orders from his chineses bosses.

We'll see..

In case you're wondering.

An armored train:


Kim's train:


Now I think him being in China is fishy...but if he is on the run? I am not so sure about that.

I read this earlier when the story broke. I wondered about this myself. I know Kimmy goes there every so often. I think the last time was a few years back though.

Anyhoo...


I think Kimmy is just there to pick up his country's Chinese Welfare check.

I read an account of a top level DPRK defector. He said when Kim Jong Il was speaking privately, he didn't really have deep hate for the US or speak ill of its leaders, however he hates China, and despises its govt.

What good is an armored train when you know exactly where it is going? Seriously unless you have a billion china men laying new track in front of the train as it travels I don't see the point.

North Korea is communist.
China is brutally capitalist.

Kim Jong Il is something of a revolutionary. Every Chinese president since Li Xiannian has been a corporatist bureaucrat.

That Kimberly would hate 'em isn't too surprising.
