+++Kim Jong Il names successor+++
Northkorean leader surprisingly announces his son, Kim Jong Un, as his successor. The 24-year old takes the lead of the communist party. The third son of Kim Jong Il previously played no role in thoughts about Kims succession.

Interesting development, i say.
And wow, heading a country at 24! Dream come true! Although it's a fairly ****ty one

Why are the North Koreans carrying this on? The reason why they're doing so badly and their citizens have so few freedoms is because of the communist government. If North Korea had a similar government to that of South Korea then they would be doing far better.

They've only ever had two leaders (as a communist country) Kim Jong Il and his father and now his son.

We thought Democratic Freedom would come to starving North Koreans.

Poor sonny, maybe he will change the country when his father dies.

Let's hope so.

Indeed. I've got no idea who the son is or what he's like. I hope he's better than his father, but of course his father probably wouldn't have chosen him if that was the case so I'm worried :(

Is that even relevant?

Defying or not defying the US should not be a factor in what a sovereign nation does internally.

Whatever the motive, let's just hope the successor will bring progress to NK.

Shouldn't be a factor, but it seems to be THE factor when it comes to invading entire countries and killing their innocent people in the name of "bleed'em" ("freedom").

What do these two things have to do with each other? Democracy has absolutely nothing to do with economy.

Kim Jong Il? Does anyone seriously believe the guy is still alive? :confused:

I know, but this doesn't give the right to the US to intervene everywhere and use names such as "The Axis of Evil", we're not in WWII.

They're starving because KJ-Il has closed the country off from the rest of the world. If the dictatorship was gone and replaced by something else they could be helped.

It was more of a "they need a regime change" comment.

But that's how military intervention starts.

But that's how military intervention starts.It can be. As I said, simply calling a country evil isn't intervention. Until the US starts invading Iran and N. Korea (which I seriously doubt would happen anyway), I'd avoid saying they "intervene everywhere".

Yeah, and I was pointing out that political regime alone has nothing to do with economical situation. What North Korea needs is capitalism. Obviously regime and economy influence each other -you can argue you can't have totalitarianism and capitalism, at least not for long, but you can have prosperity without democracy.

We should just blow them up and be done with them. :whi: Heehee. I'm totally joking, although, I think it's ridiculous that such a family continues to rule anything, let alone a country. Something needs to be done eventually. :mis:
