    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.



    Yup it's true

    I felt bad the years back when the photos first showed up showing his state of health. It doesn't matter what the man did and and how horrible his rule may have been for those stuck with him--seeing someone in that state bothers me. No one should have to experience that.

    Heart attack, stroke, or diabetes... Take your pick.

    I'm shocked. Hopefully conditions for the people may improve in North Korea, it's very very very unlikely but it might be possible.

    It would happen sooner or later.

    It was just a matter of time since his health started to degenerate.

    2011=A bad year for dictators

    Nice to see another evil person die, I hope Kim Jung Un does a good job in power, North Korea deserves better. Also open North Korea for trade in 5 years time.

    Many people may not have held the best opinion of Kim Jong Il, but you have to admit, he had a good sense of fashion (and he liked to look at things :P ).

    How do you know they're bad? According to their official webpage:



    Gonna be hard proving otherwise, seeing that footage is scarce.

    If he has an open casket funeral, and if there is a picture of him, there should be one that says "Kim Jong-Il looking at his eyelids"

    lol @ usa occupying north korea. that is never going to happen, Kokotaku.

    also don't get your hopes up guys, this guy provided his sons with everything they have including their upbringing. all it is doing is bringing in another man to power to make nukes and do whatever crazy things his dad was doing.

    imho the kid would be better off either discontinuing the nuclear program and leaving everything as it is now or doing that and trying to help undo the damage caused by his father with the relations with south korea and the rest of the world. will this happen? probably not. I expect more nuke testing in the future. sad.

    but occupation of north korea? lmao. whatever. not going to happen.
