Kim Jong-il names successor?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090602/ts_nm/us_korea...

How long before this 25 year old kid takes over, do you think he will be more level headed than his father due to his youth or will he be more hotheaded than his father because of his youth?

    Kim Jong-Il is considerably more insane a nutcase than his father, Kim Il-Sung. Does not bode well for the future of the DPRK. Maybe the world will get lucky and he'll be too crazy even for the DPRK military to accept who will then sweep him aside in a coup d'etat.

    How long before the 25 year old takes over depends on Kim Jong-il himself, and how the youngest son will rule depends on how spoiled he has become being the son of Jong-il enjoying all the 'benefits' of being the dictator. If the son is open minded and really cares for the country and the people, he will probably follow the way China has changed after the Tienanmen Square event. Look at how prosperous China has gotten bringing over half a billion people out of poverty.

    very soon have you seen Kim Jong Ill syphilitic's appearance lately? Hes got one foot in the grave the other is sliding and his finger on the trigger

  • Well, we won't find out until later. Because narcissism can be hereditary, or it could have skipped the son. So only those that know him will know the truth.

    I am hoping for the former rather than the later.

    i do no longer see any reason of a rational North Korean to approve of their government. yet what can they do? They understand in the event that they insurrection, Kim will in basic terms lock them up in some camp to do forced exertions for something of their life.

    If a 25 year old takes over, the military will kill him & take over in less than a year.
