    Jong is a renegade with a napoleon-complex.

    I'm not at work, so I don't have access to any of my intel sources, but if there is any confirmation, I should be able to find out on monday.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Kim Il-Sung's 'revolution' to be continued by 'son and grandson'

    Special to World Tribune.com

    East-Asia-Intel.com, February 8, 2005

    North Korea's media has for the first time confirmed that its leader Kim Jong-Il is preparing for a hereditary transfer of power to one of his three sons.

    Kim Jong-Il turns 63 on Feb. 16.
    Kim, who turns 63 on Feb. 16, became the first ruler in communist history to succeed a father as head of state in 1994 when his father died at the age of 82. Kim Jong-Il had been anointed by his father 20 years earlier when his father embarked upon a two-decade-long transition program.

    "Our (national) founder Kim Il-Sung, when he was alive, emphasized that if he falls short of completing the revolution, it will be continued by his son and grandson," the North's Central Broadcasting Station said Jan. 27. The term "grandson" referred to one of Kim Jong-Il's heirs apparent, North Korea watchers said.

    "This is a philosophy that revolution should be completed even if it takes place in the next generation. If our tradition is great, then the inheritance of it should be great as well," the broadcast said.

    The state-run media also quoted Kim Jong-Il as saying he would "uphold father president's instructions," an indication of an impending another power transfer program.

    Analysts in Seoul say the report appears to be tantamount to official confirmation that the world's only communist dynasty would hand the reins to a third generation.

    "There have actually been many things that hint at the secret and systematic preparations of nominating the successor of Kim Jong-Il," said Cheong Seong-Chang, a North Korea specialist at Seoul's private Sejong Institute.

    He said Kim's second son, Jong-Chol, 23, is most likely to succeed his father power because North Korea has recently glorified his natural mother, Ko Yong-Hi, calling her "respected mother" and "great woman."

    The North made a similar campaign to idolize Kim Jong-Il's mother, Kim Jong-Suk, as "Comrade of Revolution," when he was designated the successor to his father and national founder Kim Il-Sung. "The personality cult for Ko is considered as a prelude to appointing her son as the crown prince to pave the way for her son's future rein," Cheong said.

    Jong-Chol has accompanied his father on recent inspection tours of military units, a South Korean intelligence source said.

    Kim Jong-Il has frequently visited military units as part of his "army-first" policy, under which he has given top policy priority to military affairs, calling on its hunger-stricken people to bear economic hardships and build a strong military in the face of U.S. military threats.

    The North's 1.1-million-strong armed forces, the world's fifth largest, are the backbone of Kim's iron-fisted rule, which he inherited from his father.

    Cheong said recent purges were part of Kim Jong-Il's plan to clear the path for the eventual transfer of power.

    Kim Jong-Il's brother-in-law, Jang Song-Taek, regarded as a strong candidate for the country's next leader, was recently purged and removed from public life, according to South Korean intelligence sources.

    Kim Jong-Il's first-born son, Kim Jong-Nam, 34, embarrassed the regime when Japanese authorities caught him attempting to enter Japan illegally in May 2001. Jong-Nam is the son of Kim Jong-Il's second wife, Song Hae-Rim, who died in a Moscow hospital in 2002.

    That made me remember- back in the summer of 1980 I was taking a summer speech class in college. We met daily. To start off every class, we discussed current events. There were 2 Iranian students in the class. The Shah had been dead for a while. Every day one of them piped up "The Shah is dead!".

    This was the same class that had a few Palestinians in it. No matter what the assigned subject of a speech was to be, their speech was always why the PLO should not be considered a terrorist organization.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
