Ex-North Korea spy says Kim Jong-Un struggling to control military
For anyone who has observed North Korea over the years, the above statement is beyond doubt. To wit: long established and deeply entrenched military
personnel/commanders are not about to let some green kid take over the country. That's just not going to happen no matter what the average
peasant/citizen is told.
Right now, there is a battle going on within North Korea and between that nation and China, for some degree of common ground and latitudinal
understanding. Outwardly, even to the People's Republic, Kim Jong Un is the leader. This is a critical facade that will be upheld. But from within,
he may be no more than a prisoner in a gilded cage.
While the main scream media soaks up every drop of photographic propaganda exiting N. Korea... we really have no good idea of what is happening
My personal guess is that Obama will negotiate a deal with Red China to sack the Kim regime and replace it with another that is both acceptable to the
PRC and bring it out of the dark ages. This could happen most anytime.
Now, that said, China also looks on with a certain amount of ticklish comfort as the US and S. Korea are tied in knots dealing with their puppet
state. Kim, if he survives, will likely become something of a personality in the PRC post-change.
