It looks like N. Korea will have a new leader sooner rather than later. Lets see if his son, who is poised to assume the leadership role, can keep the military in line. There has been reports his son does not have the support daddy did when he came to power. This should be intresting.. Almost like watching a train wreck in progress.


North Korea is expected to name new leadership at an historic meeting on September 28. Analysts believe Jong-il's youngest son Kim Jong-un is likely to be given an official title at the Workers' Party conference.

That would pave the way for his eventual succession as leader.

Jong-il, who is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, has reportedly accelerated succession plans.

The North's KCNA news agency said the conference would be held in Pyongyang "for electing its supreme leadership body", but provided no further details of the agenda.

Kim Jong-un is not even 30 yet. He was born January 8, 1982 or 1983

Looks like he might soon be the man for North Korea.

Thanks for sharing OP,

The article was talking about an accelerated sucession plan, so im guessing dad is trying to get him in place at a time he can still control the military. I think once dad passes away, we will see the complete collapse of the North. Being this is the youngest of 3 sons, I find that intresting in and of itself. If the older 2 are not competant to rule the North, I doubt the younger one will be.

Talk about welcome to Politics that hard way... Your our new leader.. Oh by the way, we have no food, no fuel oil, a bunch of nukes that may or may not work, and the world hates us, and China is getting tired of us mooching off them.. By the way everything your family has stated, They are from the Gods, they invented Golf etc was a big lie... Your orders sir?

There has been speculation that father dearest has intentionally pissed off the World to make transition for his son easier. I guess if you look long term, pissing the world off then allowing the son to pull things back in by acting, uhhm, normal I guess, it could go a long way in cementing him into his new leadership position. Make the wrong call though and we have a show.

Terrible idea but then again, Kim Jong-il isn't the brightest light bulb in the box. I doubt his youngest son even cares about the idea of succeeding him.
