When the mutherfucker hit hell he blew it wide open.
The man named the “great successor” to take control of North Korea in the wake of the death of Kim Jong Il, is a baby-faced twenty-something with virtually no public profile outside of his home country.
Kim Jong Un, known only to be in his late 20s, has gained the little profile he has over the past three years — as he has slowly been pushed forward as the man to take over from his ailing father.
On Monday, that transition was seemingly complete, with North Korean state media reporting that the younger Kim, born to the late leader’s third wife, was the “great successor” to his father.
“Standing in the van of the Korean revolution at present is Kim Jong Un, great successor to the revolutionary cause of juche and outstanding leader of our party, army and people,” the country’s official news agency said, referring to the official ideology of juche or self-reliance, AFP reported.
“Kim Jong Un’s leadership provides a sure guarantee for creditably carrying to completion the revolutionary cause of juche through generations, the cause started by Kim Il Sung and led by Kim Jong Il to victory.”
But it was only in September, 2010, that the first ever adult picture of Kim Jong Un was run by state media — after he was appointed as a four-star general and given senior ruling party posts, The (London) Times reported.
Typical communist nation state. There’s always a next-in-line tyrant successor.
There’s a lot of blood on the hands of North Korea. Not just during the Korean war, but in the aftermath against its own people.
When I was a young Private in 1976, I remember the uproar over the the murder of two United States Army officers by North Korean soldiers over a tree cutting in the DMZ.
Over the years, the little gargoyles north of the 38th parallel have rattled their sabers with nuke production, missile launches, murders, kidnappings, and threats. One of these days we might get a president with balls who will call their bluff instead of “negotiating without preconditions”.
