North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, 69, has died

(AP) 5 minutes ago

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Kim Jong Il, North Korea's mercurial and enigmatic leader, has died. He was 69.

Kim's death was announced Monday by state television from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.

Kim is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008 but appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country carefully documented by state media.
The leader, reputed to have had a taste for cigars, cognac and gourmet cuisine, was believed to have had diabetes and heart disease.

The news came as North Korea prepared for a hereditary succession. Kim Jong Il inherited power after his father, revered North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, died in 1994.

In September 2010, Kim Jong Il unveiled his third son, the twenty-something Kim Jong Un, as his successor, putting him in high-ranking posts.

Talk about an amazing year for political changes in our favor!

1. Ousting of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt
2. Death of Osama Bin Laden of a mansion in a suburb of the capital of Pakistan (WTF?)
3. Death of Muammar Gaddafi of Libya
4. Death of Kim Jong-Il of North Korea

Woot woot!

If we only had an election to get Obama out of office this year too!

No, but it was a stupid idea to immediately spend $787 billion of our money on corrupt companies who deserved to go out of business was certainly a good reason to want him out of office.

I have a feeling things might get worse in North Korea, at least initially. The son who takes over will want to prove that he's no pushover, so I expect a lot of threats and posturing that could come close to pushing us into another war.
