TOKYO (AFP) — Kim Jong-Il's third son, the likely successor to the North Korean leader, has been appointed acting defence chief under his ailing father, a Japanese newspaper reported on Saturday.
Kim Jong-Un started supporting his father as acting chairman of North Korea's National Defence Commission, the evening edition of the Mainichi Shimbun said, quoting unnamed sources close to North Korean leadership.



Does this mean he will:

1) Stop this silliness of kim's???
2) Put a fresh face on an old dictatorship?
3) Ensure N.K's destruction by continuing his fathers insane attempts at at starting a nuclear war.

If he has put one of his sons in a direct position to succeed him as leader, you can bet your bottom dollar that the kid closely follows his dads thinking!

I mean, the military dictator doesn't put the kid that wants to be an artist and musician in charge!
