When I found out Kim Jong-il had died, and that his son would be stepping up, I immediately feared an assassination. I say "feared" because I
believe Kim Jong-un has the ability to lead N. Korea out of darkness. He was educated in western civilization. He has seen first hand the real world,
and if he wanted to, he could lead N. Korea out of its impoverished, dark state. But then I thought about the N. Korea military. The "Great Leader"
derived his power from both his legacy and his military. The people looked to him as a god, and the military obeyed him without question. That's how
he maintained a lifestyle of plenty while his people suffered. But when his son became the new leader, I'm sure there were concerns from the high
ranking generals about whether or not he would continue to uphold the current state of the country. If he were to abolish N. Korea's oppressive
regime and attempt to reconcile with the South or form a new government, there would be a military coup, or an assassination. If that's what
happened, you can bet that Kim Jong-un was actually a good guy who may have been trying to change his country for the better, and the high ranking
military leaders didn't want to change things.
